I relish the classes and hospitability of my instructors and stuffs. The understudies are agreeable and cool. Moreover, the school likewise gives halal nourishment. Be that as it may, the innovation condition is more terrible than I can ever envision! PCs take ages to stack; the web association is moderate! In particular, there isn't sufficient assets, for example, books, fans, warm condition, aerate and cool, which makes it awkward for understudies to concentrate on studies. In by and large, the school is alright. The experience you escape this is 100% in view of how you make it. Since the school is underprivileged, it does not have the assets and necessities to be effectively helpful to the understudies. In any case, the bond that you could make there is stunning. It's a genuine family condition, not the fake impeccable family we see on TV. This is an extreme love family with accentuation on the affection.

I was admitted to Detroit International Academy for young women in 2015. I was in 11th grade and currently, I am a senior. I like the classes and hospitability of my teachers and stuffs. The students are friendly and cool. In addition, the school also provides halal food. However, the technology condition is worse than I can ever imagine! Computers take ages to load; the internet connection is vey slow! Most importantly, there isn't enough resources such as: books, fans, heat condition, air condition, which makes it uncomfortable for students to focus on studies. In overall, the school is okay.
At Detroit International Academy For Young Women(D. I. A) my experience was excellent. I have gotten the chance to learn about different cultures, have wonderful opportunities, and to just be comfortable being in an environment with just girls, cause then if I am going through something, then I would feel confident to share because I know that they share the same feelings sometimes.
