The school, in my experience, is great! You can really tell that the teachers truly care for all of their students and constantly make themselves available to help us. That being said the school is not perfect, for example our building is under construction which gets rather annoying during test time, but other than little things, it's a great school!

The Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy is a great school for young men who want to make an impact in their communities. The school teaches students to be leaders and competitive scholars in a family setting. The classes are challenging, but with caring teachers it is possible to overcome those obstacles. The culture of the school is unlike any other, it is something that has to be seen to be understood. From my experience of going to the school from sixth grade until now, a senior, I have gained wisdom about life as well as become a person who wants to have an impact on the world for the better in my own unique way.
I like how the teachers here at the Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy go above and beyond for us, the students. They pour their heart and soul into shaping these young minds to succeed, despite the stereotypes put onto minorities, since this school is predominantly minorities. However, one thing I'd like to see change is the implication of sports within the school, although many would say that the focus is academics rather than sports, sports would offer the students even more motivation to further their education and keep seeking interest in healthy competition, as well as motivation.
