Attending Dr. Abraham P. Cano Freshman Academy was a great experience in a very friendly environment. Cano provided great educational outlets and had an amazing administration team. The campus was very well taken care of and the multiple security guards helped to provide a safer environment. The teachers were very caring and well trained and the atmosphere at Cano was very welcoming. One object that I think would be valuable to change is the food they serve. Although the ladies serving the food are very kind and helpful, it would have been great to have some more healthy options. Overall, Cano Freshman Academy is a great school that provides many opportunities for their students.

Dr. Abraham P. Cano Freshman Academy is an organized well structured school for learning and bring character to each student. Teachers are excellent and commited to helping students learn each day. The food isn't bad at all, but maybe having a variety of choices to chose from would be great. Having a college advisor is excellent for realizing the potential of each and every student for the future. Having an elevator gives the ease for students that are injured or unable to use stairs a great way to get from the first floor to the next. I believe Dr. Abraham P. Cano Freshman Academy is an excellent school for students to build character and learn new things every day.
Ok school. Needs more opportunities to get involved and get community service hours. Lunch time boring since they don't allow your phones or music. Really strict. The only good thing was I was not there the whole entire time. Home school rocked, but missed my cool teachers and friends.
