Detroit Edison Public School Academy Reviews

3 reviews
I was not as prepared for college as I should have been. None of the tips and advice we were told have been used YET, but we didn't get much anyway. They are quite unorganized and I hope it has gotten better as they seem to have a new principal. That does not, however, change the fact that there are funds being held for unknown reasons: We pay for lunch, have high senior dues, and do many bake sales but still have not expanded the school in any way. No home economics or extra curriculum other than band and sports. Perhaps they are using that money to find qualified teachers; if so, I will excuse the slow expansion.

My school prepares student for the college life based on the work load, certain teachers want you to succeed and some just say it for the occupation. In reality, sometimes my school is late on events and take precautionary measures on events that needed to be redirected different. Other words my school is a decent school to attend.
I like the academic structure however, the person in assistant leadership should maybe take a break for a while. New leadership is needed.
