Drew Charter School is excellent! I would not have been as greatly prepared for college currently if I didn't attend. Because the school is so small, it is very easy to meet people who will help you through your school journey, as well as those who came from the same background as you. Although they are a new school, they have had many successful outcomes thus far, and Im sure as they continue to grow, they will foresee many more.

I liked the College & Career Readiness program (CCR) because there were many available and willing people to go to for help. Unlike most other schools, there are two high school counselors and two college readiness counselors. With Drew being a much smaller school, in comparison, this means that each of the counselors has much more time to have individualized conversations with students, which I've found can help everyone. One thing I would like to see change is more community service opportunities; students have a minimum of 100 hours to fill but there aren't that many opportunities to do them. I'd suggest partnering with local community service agencies to give students a variety of choices so that they can be passionate about the work they're doing, not merely doing it to be able to graduate.
My experience with Drew have always been positive. The school positive friendly teachers, brilliant academics and several activities that can't be seen in other high schools. Each teacher does their job well and are always uplifting. Students (including myself) have grown close relationships with our teachers in which we learn more about our personalities and ultimately hold us to high regard - expecting us to set the bar high and to achieve greatness in the future. Our beautiful school also consist of unique academics. Besides the basic classes, the school holds Engineering, Harp, Intro to Business and several AP courses. In addition, as early as middle school - community service is greatly recommended in which community service is actually build into the curriculum. Finally, thanks to the school(s) themselves, the community has greatly prospered. Originally dubbed the infamous "little vietnam" - the community of East Lake is now highly praised from those far and wide.
