I've enjoyed my high school years at this newly developed school. The project-based style of teaching has been a great way to learn and help prepare me for the real world. Its assisted me in gaining life skills and knowledge to realize how to succeed as I move on to college and employment. I've enjoyed the community engagement and projects. The teachers are also very well informed and knowledgeable in their subjects. They make us feel like we are all the same no matter what background we come from or what our learning abilities are. Thankful to have been at the start of this upcoming school in Greenville, South Carolina!

I loved the community and environment here. The small classes and invested teachers allowed a very hands-on and unique education. The setting in classes and with the staff was very informal. This made students feel appreciated and equal to the teachers. They helped us along every step in class and treated us as competent young adults. This created an environment that encouraged self-sufficiency and motivation among students. The school is a fairly new startup so the building is very unconventional and somewhat inconvenient for efficient teaching. The school is actively trying to fix up the building and create more space for learning, as well as a better layout. The small student body currently fits in this transformed office building, but the student population is growing fast, possibly too fast for the administration to keep up.
Next is what you make of it. If you are motivated, the opportunities are there for you. The pros are extremely supportive and create a positive school culture. The peers are all accepting of each other. However, you have to seek out opportunities for yourself. Any clubs, sports, or experiences you want to have, you have to create. The same goes for classes you want to take but are not offered; you have to seek them out elsewhere. This is great because then you can make it how you want it, but tough for less motivated students or students with fewer resources. Overall, I would recommend Next over public schools due to the vastly more supportive and kind environment but realize there is still room for improvement.
