Power Center Academy High School Reviews

I love the simple fact that Power Center Academy is a small school, however, I dislike the fact that the school offers very limited extracurricular activities and clubs. The scenery and placement of the school is not pleasant to the eyes either. I want to the school expand and develop a foundation that is consistent to the students' learning. My eleventh grade year by far is the worst, simply because we had a few teachers quit. This hurt my learning and scores severely but I managed to still get the information I need after school.

My experience at Power Center Academy has been a love- hate relationship. I have attended Power Center Academy since 8th grade and the environment of the school has went down into shambles. Students are unmotivated to do their work and as a result there are distractions in class from those who choose to disrupt the class because they do not want to learn. Since my transition to high school, I feel as though this school does not offer me the resources to reach my full potential. We school offers chemistry and physics classes; however, we have no access to a lab. So this does not give the students the opportunity to receive a hands on experience. I often worry about my future and college life, as I may have difficulty adjusting to the major change form high school to college. I wonder if I am prepared enough.
I would change the school culture which includes the resources and parent involvement.
It’s a giod school, kinda strict but professional and you learn alot at a fast pace, the only thing that’s lacking is the kindergarten behavior they put the students at. They treat the upperclassmen as babies and make everything a competition between grade levels. They do reward the grade levels for their corporations in making the school better. They are upgrading the school which is also a good thing and they keep all activities open and nice and long.
