I am soooo grateful for this school. My daughter is graduating in June from the 12th grade and today is decision day for all students across the country and she's going to a great college! Thank you ACLA for preparing her.

All City Leadership Academy provides an amazing academic and social environment for students to excel in. For a school located in Bushwick, many of the students are minority, low-income, and first-generation. Despite this, students get accepted into the world's most prestigious universities. I for one will be attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology next year and my classmates have already been accepted to schools like Stanford, UPenn, Harvard, Princeton, and UVA (and yes there will be others going to CUNYs and SUNYs- nothing wrong with that- we all have different needs and dreams).What sets us apart from other public schools is the overwhelmingly loving community that the school provides. We don't have to worry about violence, bullying, or petty gossip that most High Schools are accustomed to. From day one we treat each other like a family and grow to push one another to achieve their goals. With the loving community, supportive staff, and overall academic drive, anyone can succeed here. ACLA is just that small school in Bushwick that helps students strive to make a big difference.

This school is all about the data! They could care less about your child as an individual. Not what was promised.

This is one of the best public school I ever attended. Not only are the teachers helpful and nice, the students are willing to help each other and newcomers. The school works as a community so kids are offered protection they might not get from other public schools.
