My involvement with Community school for social Justice(CSSJ) Has Come to be interesting for me it is a small community and everybody there is benevolent , they are exceptionally contributed to there training and getting incredible evaluations.Everybody there additionally put there time to partake in some kind of afterschool activities like Sports, cheerleading, dancing, film ,NYPD investigates. Some of these activities that students share in they can have the capacity to bring on with them as they move advances into new sections of the vocation or studies they might want to seek after.As a dynamic individual from CSSJ since my rookie to senior year what I might want see change in the future is to make the scholastics classes additionally fascinating and amusing to be more connected with to, also students should have the privilege to pick there elective classes since it can give them Reasonability to settle on the correct decisions and encounter what there experience within collage.

I’m a current student at this school I have a good experience so far. Highschool can be rough with the drama and school work. But my teachers had help me out a lot through these 3 years I have been here. It’s gonna be really sad them behind next year. My school is a community we are together as a family , dislike or anything we still have eachothers back. We are call Community because we are one. For social justicebecause we want to be heard in justice so we work so hard in law class to learn how to be in a court room to how to be a lawyer and talk to the judge all the evidence and everything. This school is clean , people are respectful. Even the staff and teachers are respectful
Community School For Social Justice is a really small and cool school to be in. I feel more comfortable and don't feel felt out. It's a school were teachers are very friendly with the students which makes it easier to get better explanations from a teacher in case I didn't understand a topic that was thought. There'a this class called COLLEGE ADVISORY that actually helps me know more about my choice of college and gets me prepared for college. There's a chance to be in COLLEGE NOW at Hostos community college which makes me have an idea/preview about what is thought in college and get points or credit for college. I also do research and presentations which has made me more better in speaking in public. Me personally, the only thing I dislike about the school is, it's closer to the street like an outside kind of but security is tight so I'm okay.
