My experience at Drew Charter school was decent overall. I am currently a senior, and I have been enrolled since the 3rd grade. Because the small's non-traditional overall size and small number of new students every year, it's like I've grown up with the same people all of my life. While I wish that I was exposed to a variety of peers, Drew could be considered a family for those like me. I believe each student experience is subjective, so the disadvantages of attending may vary. On the other hand, Drew Charter School most likely offers the best education in Atlanta. The academic performance of the students is always increasing, and the school ranks #1 in Atlanta Public Schools regarding, education, performance, and opportunity. The high school truly focuses on college readiness for all students and wants every student to be accepted into college; You will not find anything similar to that at other high schools.

Hello everyone,
I have been attending Charles R. Drew Charter School for 6 years now and the experience is very different. There are various activities and opportunities here at this school and you will love it!!
A lot of great prep work for college happens here, as that is what I first noticed when going to college for the first time. They are very helpful, and there is much to learn here if you invest your time.
