North Lawndale Charter High School is very big on college acceptance, but I would like to see a change within their school structure, The school focuses more on the rules and not the principles of situations. The students are treated like little children in terms of independence. We are held accountable for the actions of former students and we are penalized as a whole for the incidents involving single students. We even have bathroom escorts because of an incident that happened with last years seniors.

Well, while I attended North Lawndale college prep the school was just amazing. And, the teachers that were just fantastic and the curriculum was just on point. But, the one thing that I would change is the way that the students behaved during drills. The reason is because things like that need to be taking more seriously.
My teachers were highly involved in my learning. Teachers at North Lawndale College Prep were nurturing and challenging as well. The teachers at my school always provided the perfect environment for education. They Also switched up their teaching styles to keep us engaged and taught us life skills using the Phoenix Way (Be Respectful, Be Prepared, Be Responsible, and Be Peaceful).
