What I did like about this school was that everyone seemed to be closely connected. We practically grew up with one another especially if attended Anna Yates Elementary school. I love the diversity of students, and the one on one help and networking opportunities.

I would like for the clubs and activities, and sports to expand over the years, and the test scores to be at least a C average B being the highest. The school isn't at all ready for college as a whole there is a select few who is ready. The teachers have favorite students and I think every student should be able to have a relationship with their teacher knowing how small the school is.
The teachers here at Emery Secondary School in Oakland California is phenomenal. Every single teacher adequately lead and take control of the classrooms. All the teachers are very friendly, open, and approachable. The teachers at Emery take time out their lives to get know their students more to help them succeed in life. The teachers effectively incorporate technology and real life examples in the class work daily. Since Emery Secondary is very small the students get a lot of one on one time with teachers, which , makes it very easy for teachers to help out every single student prosper.
