I love Kathlyn Joy Gilliam Collegiate Academy. Is the school I attend right now, the school that I will be graduating twice . I will have the opurturnity to graduate with my associates in May and will be graduating with my high school diploma in June. I will love to see that this school add sports and become more social with other schools. Having to compete with other school with sports will make students more social with each other and it shouldn’t just be to compete with other school for test scores. We should also have a open campus, when ever a senior gets hungry we can go out and get food because without food in my head I can’t think right and the food at school is not the best.
Attending Kathlyn Joy Gilliam Collegiate Academy is a great opportunity to get started early on your college journey. It saves you money and gives you the chance to graduate high school with an associates. The school is small, therefore there is a close bond between students and teachers. However, there are no extra-curricular activities and sports.
