I like the programs that they have, like the one called After School Matters which has all kinds of different programs and could also get pay for being in that program participating. Spry Community Links also have other class programs that is part of a grade that all students need to take and pick either cooking class, graffiti, sports, film, etc, its for after classes.The good thing is that it's a three year school programs, students are able to graduate one year earlier, but they also need to come to school during the summer. What I like is that on Fridays teachers takes us to field trips. What I didn't like is that for especial ed students, it's the whole four year of school which means they also need to come during the summer too.

Its a good school, that is a three year high school. Thee only thing is that it dosent have a lot of resources or fundings to do a lot of activities. It dosent prepare you for college since they dont have funding to have more advanced classes you would have to do it in your free time if you want to do advanced work or make advanced work for yourself. The teachers support you fully , its just the funding and some of the students that are in the school that don’t really care about school, which brings down funding and educational ranking.
I have attended Spry Community Links for 2 years and am currently attending my last year as a senior. My experience has not been the best, so there are a couple of things I do not like, but there are a couple that I am okay with. I believe the school needs a major makeover, from the principal, some of the staff, to the policies. I feel like the the staff should care more about our education and things outside relating to us, our culture and beliefs. I believe the policies should be focused on more things, not just one topic. What I do like, is the school is small, so you can easily get to know more other students, as well as the teachers.
