School Reviews

American Leadership Academy-Ironwood started out as a great school. The uniforms were nice because they prevent bullying. I an F in a geometry course for the quarter. The school is going to take away my credit, even though they go based on SEMESTER GRADES not quarter grades. THAT'S RETARDED. They should be averaging out for the entire year, and if I end up with a failing grade, then they should take away my credit. My average for that class is a C+ so if they take away my freaking credit I'm going to be pissed. Also, if a student has a different opinion than someone else, they get detention. If they hug someone for more than three seconds, they get detention. There is absolutely no room for being a teenager.
