The Espiritu District (NFL YET Academy, Reyes Maria Ruiz Leadership Academy, and Esperanza Montessori Academy) is a wounderful school system. I have children at all 3 schools, which is located on 1 campus. It is a family like atmosphere and the teachers and principals are exceptional. Keep up the great work!!!

This is a terrible school.I don't suggest it at. For one,the teachers are okay,but don't teach us enough. We eat outside,as there is no cafeteria. No one enforces the bullying rule. The bathrooms are locked,due to writing on the walls. I plan on transferring next school year.

This school isn't cool. They receive funding from the NFL, yet they don't have a cafeteria for the students. They have to eat outside in the and in the summer it's 112 degrees. Sometimes they run out of lunch and some classes don't get to eat. This is insane! My niece has been in this school since kindergarten and they keep promising a cafeteria and as of now it hasn't happened. My niece is in 12th grade now! Don't send your children to this school.

My daughter has done exceptionally well. She is a third-grader who reads and writes above average, and her Math has improved greatly this year. She has attended the school since Kinder, and I am very happy with her education.

School has an outstanding Music program Mr Diaz is very dedicated. Academics are substandard and do not prepare students for success in higher education. There is a lack of focus of were money is spent in developing the curriculum. it should be college level for the college prep. I withdrew my children when they finished the 8th grade because of the lack of focus on academics.

I am amazed at how many parents have written positive comments about this school. This school dummy downs the curriculum to give parents the impression their children are excelling. I challenged this school to have these students compete against other public schools. They call themselves a college prep academy but they are far from that.

NFL YET is the place to be! This school's academic programs are the best for a child to go and learn. Not only because it is a small school but because the teachers and staff make the students want to learn. Parents are involved with there child's education and as well as the staff. The enviornment is amazing and safe. The discipline is at it's best at all times. Overall this school is an awsume place to send your kids.

The school has great potential. The teachers are qualified, on the most part, and the vision is very good and ambitous. The problem is that the leadership does not stick to one plan and wavers back and forth on techniques without giving the time necessary to refine the original ideas.

I have both my daughter and son attending NFL YET Academy. I have been amazed at the growth my children have achieved while attending NFL YET. The entire community is great from adminisration to the teachers and even the support staff. I know my kids are being prepared to be successful in University. I reccomend any parent to visit the school, see for yourself what the school is realy about.

I am very happy with my daughter's education. She increased 5 grade levels in the Stanford 9 math test, and passed her AIMS writing in the 10th grade.

The principal is very discriminating my biggest mistake was letting my children go to NFL. They need to get a principal who will not put kids down because of their grades.

My daughter was 2 grades behind in math when I decided to pull her out. She was 2 grades behind and getting A's in math. She is now where she should be. I do not recommend this school to anyone. One of the teacher' at NFL told my daughter they are just a diploma factory. Also the Principal does not know how to respond to parents or kids. If you send this child to this school, you will regret it. The education is very poor.

The teachers are very good, caring and understanding at NFL. Now the principal is something else he is discrimanating and I have proof of that. I believe that children that are doing poor in school he manages to expell them from school. I should know I have had two daughters there one was expelled and the other still remains at that school but then the daughter that is at NFL gets good grades and my daughter was getting poor grades. If you want me to explain in person let me know teresabeltran58@hotmail.com
