My experience at the Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy has been great. The teachers are very hands on and supportive. The faculty as a whole makes sure that every students exceeds and maintain distinguished grades and academic standards. CSK is a very good fit for your daughter to become a future scholar. Although, CSK would be the first choice for me as a student I would like to see more extracurricular activities. In high school there are not many field trips nor dress out days. I feel if these were implemented just a little more, CSK would be the school to beat.

I really like it here it is an awesome school, the teachers are so supportive and the students get along well. I didn’t know what it was going to be like going to an all girls school, but I really wouldn’t change it for nothing in the world.. This experience is one I will not ever forget, It’s like you have a lot of sisters and aunts. I just wanna say I really love Coretta or should I say cskywla . The school is 6 thru 12th grade so you really have an opportunity to grow without moving from school to school the teachers really get to know you and help you get where you want to be in life.
CSKYWLA is a dynamic learning institution that allows for students to receive immense support and assistance regarding their post- secondary decisions. There are a plethora of sports, clubs and student organizations that further enhance students' experience.
