Akron City School District Reviews

I loved my grade school, Pfeiffer Elementary. I had the best Kindergarten teacher on the planet. First grade was a little tough, no one really understood what was wrong with me. Finally, in second grade I go my IEP and things seem to go up from there. I won the lottery and attended National Inventors Hall of Fame, STEM Middle School and then the High School. The Middle school was great and the teachers were wonderful. I sort of got lost in the shuffle in high school. Since I was doing College Credit Plus classes, I didn't get the individual attention that I should have received. All in all, public school was good for me.

I went to the NIHF STEM high school in Akron. My experience and my class mates experience is completely different compared to the rest of the students in the district. My school was the guinea pig for the district, my district would always try new things with my high school, like making college credit plus available to almost every kid in the my school, and also not have a sports program at all. Because of this my high school became the best in Akron.
I have attended school in the Akron Firestone School District and have had an excellent education. The teachers have worked hard with me to prepare me for graduation and college. The program and classes are excellent and the sports for the youth keeps us off the streets and out of trouble. I have just been certified in machining, level 1 and can get a high paying job while attending college. Its is my plan B already in hand.
