BEST Academy Middle School at Benjamin S. Carson Reviews

1 review
My experience at BEST Academy Middle School was good. The teachers care so much about you and want the best of everyone. The teachers will also give you extra chances on tests. No other APS school will do that. There's a lot to do at this school so there's no reason why anyone shouldn't be participating in any type of activity. The school is large and has lots of accomplishments. I went to this school for all of middle school and I'm currently a senior at the high school. When I first started attending this school I was often being bullied but things changed after me and my mom had a meeting with the principal. After that things quickly turned around and started getting better.
