The School for Human Rights Reviews

It's a great school for academics, but for school culture, there isn't really one. The students have no sense of community or the drive to be involved in the community. They only stay in their small groups. The schools name is also very ironic because the school has no focus on human rights advocacy or education. And there is almost no student voice in the policy making. If you just want to go to school, learn,then go home,this is the school for you. If you want a strong community and to feel like someone cares,and that your voice and strength matters then don't go there.

Before graduating from middle school, I've applied to a total of 12 high schools and SHR was the only school to accept me and give me a second chance to prove myself. Middle school did not go so well for me due to my lack of English but I've come a long way at SHR. The teachers there have helped me a lot throughout the way. They've given me as much help as they could. And now here I am, one of the top student at school.
I attended middle school and high school. The teachers actually cared about the students learning and retaining the information. Most students had a person in their family who was an alumni. This was one of the many reasons the principal was always after literally every student's wellbeing. Although the school didn't receive so much funding, but the Assistant Principal strived to incorporate several programs which focused on the social and academical development of incoming high school freshmen. I also partook in this program which allowed me to go on many trips and seminars like in Chicago and Georgetown and howard helped me grow mentally taught me how to be publicly aware going into a higher institution. The parent teacher association planed events and activities for students to help motivate them congratulating those who were proficient in performance and encouraging those who didn't perform so well.
