While overall I believe the St. Louis City Public School district needs to change some things, my personal school was a good choice for me. The school I attended was considered a magnet school and it was one of the better schools in the district. The overall district needs to work on how it prepares students for the ACT, and college. There aren't many individual oppurtunities for college readiness programs. That definitely needds to change!

The experience that I had with Saint Louis Public School varies on what school in the district. There are schools that diversity are everywhere, and that was amazing. While, there are schools that doesn't have a lot of the diversities that some students might be looking for, or vice versa. For acedemics, it will also depends on what school you choose. So you'll need to do a lot of researches to find the best school that fits your preferences. Enjoy your experience!
This district is pretty underfunded which isn’t their fault, but what is their fault and their responsibility is how they spend said funds. The particular school I graduated from, McKinley Classical Lesdership Academy, the oldest school in the district, was literally falling apart at the floors, making it unsafe for us to walk from class to class. So, instead of the district putting money we had toward making safer walking conditions, the put it toward a new gym (because that’s all the district cares about) and hiring people to put flags in every class room...that’s just one of the issues though.
