Performing Arts Community School at Diego Rivera Learning Complex Reviews

I'm new to the high school I'm currently enrolled in, though in a short time I've already seen things that stand out to me. The teachers most of all. The teachers are understanding and try to help students in any way or form in order to help them achieve their goals, some going even further to try to help you outside of school. When I was new, in the beginning of 2018, a teacher noticed I was near sighted. I haven't had glasses for the last two years and wouldn't be able to have any anytime in the next few months due to financial problems. Said teacher took me aside, reassuring me they could help me. I declined their offer, though it's a gesture I'll hold dearly. Diego Rivera even offers Saturday school for all students that need help and extra tutoring, especially for AP students. Many teachers stay after school in order to assist students with the addition of college students participating for tutoring. I've had nothing but a great experience here.

What I like about performing arts is the community and the teachers. Although it's in a community thats known for the negative statistics, everyone is pushing to be more than what is expected of them. The teachers feel like second parents, there to guide you and help you along your path to graduating. The only thing i wish could change about this school would be the funding, they need more money to accomplish all the things they can to benefit the community.
Every teacher is unique in their own way. They are ready to help and are always looking to see their students succeed. There isn't much to say, we are a very small school. The only thing is we could make our hallways a bit bigger and we are a performing arts school yet we don't have most of the arts that aren't just singing, art, or instruments. Overall the teachers can be very cool and they're very supportive.
