The Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria provides its students with many helpful resources, along with a variety of different extracurricular activities. There are always many things to look forward to when learning. During middle school, I was a very shy person. However, continuing my education in this school helped me grow as more outgoing person. The teachers in this school are always caring and make sure you have the availability to whatever it is you need. Their optimistic feelings towards their students really help encourage them to work hard and try to achieve their goals. Because every teacher has a unique style of teaching their students, it is very easy to understand the new materials that is being taught in the classroom. It is really easy to make new connections and friends. The school in general, is a very safe and enjoyable environment to be in. This school has taught me many things and is something I will never forget.

I enjoyed my time at The Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria. I was a student here since 6th grade, and they place a heavy value on community and sisterhood. I created friendships I will never forget, and since day one have been preparing for college. I only wish administration was more understanding to students' situations instead of having a "one solution fits all" approach. They need to start listening to the students' wants and needs, as opposed to remaining, worried about their reputation. However, I do love the Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria's technology passion. Every student get her own laptop and we have multiple coding classes.
First off, this school has grown to be very diverse as it values the importance of every culture, which encourages students to take pride in their culture. This school does its best to prepare you for college, making you more aware of the rigorous college process even if you are a middle schooler. Most teachers have been understanding and helpful whenever I need guidance or reassurance when I am struggling in my academics or even in my personal life. However, there is a very small handful of teachers who need to be a bit understanding and be more professional when speaking to a student. My concern with this school is that admin seems to care more about maintaining a good reputation without being quick to hear and help resolve the issues students are currently facing on the daily whether it is with a teacher or a student.
