As a student who is still attending street academy i like to say this school is the best school ever and i encourage my prior to give this school a try. street academy is the only school that make me feel like home. student always say 'man i don't want to go to school because it is hella boring' but for some reason street academy give me the feeling of wanting to come to school. everyday i wake up and say ' i can't wait to go to school' . street academy teachers are like family member. the teachers have noting but respect for student and they are there dedicating extra time to help us student pass our class and keep us in track. i care so much for the teachers the student and of course the school. this is my first high school i ever attended and hopefully my last.

They look foward to every day, everyone gets along at the school since it is smaler than usual high schools there is about150 students there and its good because everyone gets to know each other unlike bigger schools. Street academy is a great school to attend, I hope one day I can come back and teach there its a great expierence.

I Love this school. There is open communications with all staff. There is no violence, small community atmosphere and all the students passed the California High School Exit Exam. I highly recommend this school. The staff is highly committed.
