My experience at Charles R Drew Charter School has been interesting. Drew has a different school culture and focuses than most schools. Drew has given me a unique and more technology integrated way of learning, which is different from most. My school is diverse which is beneficial to the present 21-century changing workforce. Drew has explored me to different projects and activities to explore different types of teaching. Since, Drew is a S.T.E.A.M and a Project-Based Learning school classes offered to show me a connection between two subjects before this, the connection was not clear. One of the many I like are the different clubs offered and the variety. One thing I want to see change at Drew is the environment. Our environment at Drew can be chaotic at times. The last thing I would like to see change is for the students to have a more positive behavior and mindset.

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.
Drew is a nice school. It is very appealing on the outside with its glass windows and bricks. Even on the inside it has rolling desks that other schools don't have access to. Also, the college readiness crew is a big asset as it prepares a lot of us to get ready for our future. Things I would improve is the diversity and environment amongst the students because it tends to get toxic extremely fast.
