My Experience at Jalen Rose Leadership Academy for the two years I’ve been there have been fantastic. Even though we don’t have all the extracurricular activities anyone could ask for they give you the opportunity to start your own and get a sponsor for it through the school. They are very focused on academics, family oriented, and graduation rates are at a 95%. And they prepare us for college and take us through the whole process even after we leave and go off the college, trade, or army. They follow us all the way until we go to and graduate college. The school has very great parent involvement and each parent in the parents group treat each student like their own. They offer scholarships through the American Promise Schools District and offer more help than most schools in Detroit offer.

Jalen Rose leadership academy probably has one of the best extracurricular opportunities. We have Strike Team(cheer and dance), varsity boys basketball, junior varsity boys basketball, varsity girls basketball,girls volleyball, male soccer, female soccer, wrestling, step team, female mentoring, male mentoring, chess club, book club, fashion club, nerd club, student government, and senior committee. The school even lets students start their own club or organizations. Great huh?! Jalen Rose is pretty great when it comes to extracurricular.
What I like about JRLA is the support and passion most of our current administrators have. They try their best to set us straight and gain the right necessities to be very successful in our current and adult years. I do notice they do all they can to shape us as students into better beings. It’s a lot of things I want to be better such as the attire, food, more freedom but honestly it could be worst. So I’m still grateful about the environment and opportunities.
