Public safety academy might seem different than other high schools in San Bernardino but if focuses on the students and prepares them for the future. When I say prepares the students I don’t just mean in an academic way but also by teaching the students about respect and integrity. This middle/high school is underrated in my opinion. Plus students who spend their middle and high school years there get to develop friendships and they feel comfortable there due to the fact that it’s a small schools. Many kids don’t like the discipline taught at this school but it’s good to have a school that cares about the way students behave.

My experience here at this school overall is good the teachers and students have a good relationship. But the administration and counselor do not prepare you for college. They do not tell you about scholarships. One thing that they do is maintain discipline in the kids and that is very important but preparing us to do well in college and set us up for scholarships would be good.
I am a senior now graduating in 2020 through out the years it’s been a great and interesting experience. Over all it’s a great school to be at!
