This school has provided me with a few opportunities such as jobs and internships. It has also helped me to make the decision for what major I want to pursue in college. However there aren't many opportunities to get involved in the school. As a result when an opportunity does comes students aren't interested in being involved.
Urban Assembly school for Media Studies helped me to be more outgoing. The staff and teachers are reliable, friendly and hardworking.
