We have been thrilled at 21st CCCS! The academic standards are high with a great variety in assignments that encourage out-of-the-box and critical thinking. The staff and teacher support has been perfect. My son is learning and excelling in this school. We also love the various activities and field trips throughout the year.

I was highly disappointed with my child's experience at this school. While we were promised the world, very few of those promises came to fruition. Some teachers are very kind and helpful, but we had a very negative experience with the student support manager who, despite his title, offered little in the way of actual support. My child was one who never struggled to get good grades and we thought we'd give this school a try as we'd heard it was more challenging and had "out of the box" thinking -- but I truly wish we'd never switched.

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
