My experience at perspective charter school was very intriguing. Perspectives teaches college readiness and academics, yet they also give us real world problems. One of there motto is to live “A discipline life “ to shorten it up is ADL with living a discipline life we have 26 principles to live by it. One of the very few that stuck by me is always love your self and determine perseverance. No matter what issue or situation you are going through in life always persevere and to have faith that you will get through whatever challenges you are facing. Loving you one self come with it, you can not allow ones opinion to break you away from one dreams. So as Perspective has its up and downs they taught a lot of valuable lesson for adult life.

Perspectives Leadership Academy is a great school! This school has provided me with so many oppurtunities that many people are not offered. This school is all about college and college readiness.
Perspectives IIT/Math and Science Academy is a school associated with local college Illinois Institute of Technology. The school isn't very diverse made up of dominantly African American students, however the teachers that are hired are brought in with excellent teaching skills readily available to prep students for college.
