Thurgood Marshall Academy for Learning & Social Change Reviews

Thurgood Marshall Academy is a school that calls for the ambitious hearts and souls of children of color. Through my years of going to this school for seven years, I can genuinely say that this is a community. In this community, you are welcome to introduce yourself into unfamiliar territory, and as a result you're excepted with no questions asked. I like that the teachers actually contribute their own opinions and interpretations of the material and depend on the academic syllabus either very little or never of the time. I would change the quality of our college-readiness classes, right now our classes prioritizes the steps that need to be taken in order to graduate but I think that it would be essential to learn what can be done in transitioning from a colored community to one that may not mirror the surroundings we have familiarized ourselves with.

I've been attending Thurgood Marshall Academy since i was in the 6th grade. There has been many ups and downs and many changes had happened. Although the environment can be very nerve-wrecking at first, you'll eventually grow out of it and feel like you're right at home. The environment feels more family-like and you'll begin safe and free. In addition, TMA offers various types of opportunities in order for a student to grow. Some are enrolling into college classes and receiving college credits as a high school student. Others are joining sports team and playing against different levels of competition around New York City. Although Thurgood Marshall Academy is not your average school size, it offers a lot and makes you feel valuable.
I am a student at Thurgood Marshall Academy and I personally like the school. This is because I am close with much of the staff and students. Your experience at this school is what you make it. Many students complain that there are not many opportunities at the school but this is not entirely true. The school has many chances for different programs but students do not take advantage of these opportunities. The school is also based on who you know. The more people you know, the more fun you will have. Since it is such a small school it is very easy to get to know every student.
