This is a good school. There is hardly any violence here. Not really any gang activity. It's pretty peaceful. It does come up short when being compare to the "big shot" such as lane, walter payton, young, and nothside prep. But the class room sizes are smaller, so the kids get more attention. each student is issued a laptop and can do work/homework online, even when at home sick. I think with a little more of a budget, this could be one of the best. Friendly staff, good teachers, safe environment. My surrounding schools are steinmetz, foreman, prosser, and schurz, I chose Chicago Academy for my son, and haven't thought twice about it.
They are very strict. My son is a good boy and i raised him well. But he isn't perfect. This school will call you to notify you of the slightest infraction. Which is good, cause after that call, I never got another.
