Look elsewhere.
They simply put me in AP calculus and statistics and I passed those classes but what would helped me the most was precalculus.
The idea that the smart students can skip a math subject or two is so detrimental to me that I end up wasting my time having to retake classes.

Consider the curriculum offered. They should have AP science classes. Take math courses in sequence. Opt out of the math "fast track", because math knowledge always builds on itself, there are no shortcuts. If you skip ahead you're going to have to double up just to fill the holes in your knowledge. At the college level that's just asking for a lower gpa for no reason.
(It is possible to do things fast, but you MUST take classes in order. If you want to take higher level math quickly I suggest taking the preceding courses during summers. Ask your counselor. This will allow you to advance faster without skipping.)

I personally love Libra Academy. Libra’s students especially seniors all have an idea on what they want to major in, the seniors I spoke to showed a good sense of maturity and responsibility. Many of the teachers here do promote this behavior, and so does Libra it has its school wide learner objectives focusing on mind, character, and well being. Teachers here offer tutoring to help students succeed in college and in their current classes. There are many clubs here that help students grow and work hard and help apply for scholarships. There are many clubs here require students that have a sense of dedication and commitment, from the Mathletes all the way to the Humanitarian club. The teachers here are very kind and like to make connections with us, which creates everlasting bonds between the students and teachers. I myself are really close to the teachers here!
Honestly the teachers there are amazing and are always willing to help every student when needed. Without some of these teachers I wouldn’t have been capable to stand up for myself during a class discussion or say what I believe in without feeling judge. This school has prepared me for college especially my 11th and 12th grade English teacher who helped my vocabulary develop. As well as in being capable to write essays quick and figure out a thesis. Being able to be part of that academy and receiving all the help when needed made me capable of much more.
