Irene L. Chavez Excel Academy Reviews

3 reviews
Excel Academy gives opportunity to students that need it most, whether it be due to poor grades, educational struggles, bullying, insufficient credits from transferring school districts, or the need to finish high school early to help family. This is a place students can go without feeling judged, or being treated like a failure or "less than". All of the administrative staff and teachers are supportive and willing to help you. The most significant benefit of the school is the supportive, creative, out-of-the-box counselor, who not only made me feel like I could trust her and express myself in creative and positive ways instead of with words and interrogating questions, she also taught me valuable lessons about what it means to support myself out in the real world along with everything it takes to be prepared for it. This type of support and classes are not available at regular high schools, and I couldn't be more thankful for Excel.

This school helped me to graduate on time! It was nice to go to school and get my work done on my time.
I am very happy to have graduated from this High School. Everything is at your own pace and staff are very friendly and motivating toward students.
