My experience at Power Center Academy Middle School was an excellent and mind opening experience for the challenges of high school. this school has really made to where I am today. Even though, there were a few problems with the building and getting a plethora of clubs and activities. Overall, Power Center Academy Middle School was one of the best middle school's I have ever studied at.

Since Mr. Ryan and his staff left this school has been chaotic. The staff now is very petty and I guess you could say they all feel as though they have a point to prove. They act like they need some sort of validation of their position. Dont get me wrong its not all of them but it is a vast majority of the "Newbies". I used to think PCA was the best place between here and Jerusalem(figuratively speaking) but now this place is as annoying as the lines in Wal-Mart on Black Friday.?? I have yet to understand why they have the Dean(a man?) coaching(a girls team), teaching, and gossipping...everything but mentoring and being supportive of scholars. I will be so glad when mine graduates. However, there is some good in the school and some of the staff...you just have to find it and them. Oh, I know, they are in an ideal location with a clear vision and a mission that them themselves are lost in.

I just wish the staff hadnt changed ????????
Overall, my peers are great at help each other, and we have a defined culture of a sense of community. I have not seen discrimination among my peers towards another race or culture. For this school to me prominently black, students here have a positive attitude towards each other and learning.
