I love Douglass Academy for Young Men in Detroit. My son has done well at the school. They have a strong mentoring program, career related programs that students can earn certificates and a wide variety of resources to prepare the young men for college.

The teachers at my school come from the same background as most students at my school, making it easier for teachers to relate to most students and help them understand different topics better.
I am involved with every extracurricular activity my school has to offer and they are all great male role models who help us strive for a great future. They take us on trips to see different places and businesses and how different people who are successful made it to where they are.
