I'm a student there, and i love the academics. The only thing i would say is to chose friends wisely.But even if you pick bad friends be sure that you wont join in on any bad influences. the teachers there are so nice and they motivate you to excel and give you challenging work and classes that will help you in college. They use seniors as mentors to underclassmen to help with challenging work or any personal problems that they may have. The Teachers always make time for you and the extracurricular activities help expand your child to different experiences. the sports teams are epic and make good use of student's time! The best part of the school is when they take you to disney world in Florida and Six flags... If you dont go to Disney world, you go to six flags .. I love this school!
My son is a freshman at Celia Cruz and he is very happy there. He enjoys playing in the band and has a gem of a music teacher named Ms. Jacono. Since it's a small school among 6 other schools in the building, the faculty knew him by name in the first week. It's a tightknit group. He takes chalIenging courses. I hope it continues this way.
