This is a very great school for middle school students but the high school program is unprepared for the students who have more knowledge than they can hold. The high schoolers are getting fed up with this system and no one will satisfy their needs to learn college level classes. The high school teachers are unprepared adn do not give the right help in class we need. I recommend that if you are going to middle school and want to come here, come and don't hold yourself back. But if you are going into high school, DO NOT come here because I have a very strong feeling the district will close the high school portion down.
THIS SCHOOL REALLY DOES NOT KEEP PROMISES TO THE STUDENTS THEY SAID THEY WOULD PROVIDE ALL THESE TYPES OF CLASSES AND WHERE ARE THEY?? THERE IS ALSO NO SPORTS BUT BASKETBALL? REALLLY? THEY DIDNT SAY THAT WHEN I SIGNED UP. TAKE MY ADVICE DONT EVEN TAKE THIS SCHOOL INTO CONSIDERATION!
This school is not really what it claims to be the SOME teachers are really good but majority of them have no teaching skills and this is for the 9th grade they need new teachers and i have filed complaints but nothing has been done. This school is building itself up and not alot of support is provided but maybe when it gets to 12th grade it may be good but other than that the school is failing and i am afraid of the TAKS test i mean c'mon! I am glad that i am moving schools. I would actually not give this school a star I am very dissapointed on how things have changed. TERRIBLE!
I love my school. But I feel as I am not challenged that much anymore. I love not being focused on TAKS but I still want to learn every single day, and lately I have to say that hasnt been happening. :(
I am a student at the YWLA. I wounldn't recommend any other school. Of course, if the all-female enviorment is not for your daughter, then I wouldn't recommend.
My dughter has been at this school since it opened and will be in the first graduating class. I'm so very proud of her and the staff of the school. The principal and the staff are WONDERFUL! They encourage the girls and want them to soar. The long distance from our house is worth it. SAISD made a great choice with this one!
The school is everything a Private Prepatory without the high tuition! The Principal and Faculty are top notch! It's exactly what SAISD needed.
