This school, Dr. Martin Luther king Jr. Early College is one of the best high schools I've ever attended throughout my high school years. Reasons why, this schools supports you til the last minute and lead you on to a better path to success. Our teachers try their best to help us and support us throughout the years, and our teaching system is what that's helping our students become succesful. MLK has a huge program that helps this school give the students the preparation for college - my school is seriously an early college for us. MLK's environment is such a positive environment for students such as teenagers, we always respect each other! We all love how diverse This school is.

Throughout my whole experience in Martin Luther King Jr. Early College I've had some really great teachers. In fact, some of my favorite teachers are teachers that at some point worked here. They not only taught me a lot academically, but also a lot about life. They prepared me for real life and that is something teachers should do. But just like any other school, I've had some of my worst teachers here. They didn't have the patience or kindness to teach. In addition, I feel like this school tries to include everyone no matter their religion, race, etc. They try to include people's cultures into our events and out activities. Overall, I feel like this school is not as bad as people make it seem.
My experience at MLk has been good. I've been at Mlk since I was in 7th grade and now I'm a high school sophomore. I feel safe at the school and the district is very strict about attendance. The teachers are good teachers and I learn a lot from them, they courage their students and push them to become successful and make more opportunities available. This school is really big and focuses on their students safety and culture. They often celebrate the community and assemblies that entertain and make school rules very clear. This school is fair and does a very good job on making the schools rules clear. 'm currently studying here and wouldn't have a problem on graduating high from here.
