The Urban Assembly School of Music & Art at Waters Edge Reviews

The faculty members are helpful, and cater to their students. Certain teachers willingly work with students after school, if in need of extra help, and they provide early college classes/opportunities for those seeking higher education.
However there are very few extracurricular activities, except for the Arts Animation club, there is no gym, nor, auditorium but the physical education class and teacher helps in fulfilling this absence. Most students are hard workers, while some wander in the halls, like a typical high school, few suffer with being punctual, and they love to engage in class discussions, especially on current social topics.

The academics need to be more challenging, they constantly change teachers and staff. NEEDs to be a bit cleaners..Enforce more disciplinary.
My experience at this school was not all that great. Academically, yes but my experience outside of it was not. It was not many activities to enter. We do not have a gym so our access to gym activities were limited. The school is very small so almost everything was limited or we did not have like any other school. I would not choose to go to this school again because the staff was not nice they were all so strict on the students and the school was very small so their was not a lot of activities outside of the academics.
