Urban Assembly is a school that has good academic but the planning for academics is unorganized , teachers dont work together to plan things stuff is mostly pilled on top of eachother due to poor planning. Girls Bathrooms are disgusting everyday and also the cafeteria where kids eat , we understand that it is a shared school but some changes need to be made to make sure that kids are comfortable. Fights do happen at this school but that is with all schools so it is expected but i feel that the staff need to be more involved with the students because some of them dont even know my name ( Aka : The principle )
At Urban Assemblt School for Law and Justice I was taught most of the skills that I will use for the rest of my life. The college and carrer office was awesome and they helped me through every step of going to a great college to be exactly what I want to be. The students are different in terms background and attitudes you will meet a little bit of everywhere. The school makes it comfortable for students to express themselves even though there is uniform we are told not to supress our creativity by dress down days and spirit weeks.
