there is no student government (class presidents and all that) and the principal herself hand picks the prom king and queen. If she likes a student then they have a chance. If she does not, dont plan on feeling extra special on prom night.
Disorganized and dysfunctional. Nobody communicates with anyone. My son is in special education and they couldn't be bothered to read the IEP. They just took a wild guess, and were unsurprisingly completely wrong.
As a current senior of Urban Science Academy, I can honestly state that I find USA to be a fine institution. Just like any other school, it has its flaws which include the horrible lunch that is offered to students on a daily basis, however, generally it is a great school. Some of its qualities encompass the challenging science and AP courses and the recycling program.
My daughter has attended suburban schools all of her and has always hated it. She now attends USA and she Loves it. My daughter doesn't have to go to a Urban City High School she choises too. My daughter has had her share of new kid on the block troubles but she made a decision to work through it. The principal and teachers really does care and places a higher standard on these young adults. My daughter has always been smart but always felt why should she try the teachers don't care but since she been with USA she as taken off in ways that a mother could only dream of. She feels challenged to do great things in life then whats around her. She said that she was going to join the arm forces when she finished high school but has since decided to go to college.
