    I have been going to Community Academy since my eigth grade year and am now finishing up my junior year. It has been the best school that i have attended and I have been to a few. The teachers here are always willing to help us if we have any problems with anything. They have excellent extracurricular activities which i am a member in a few. They have so many good ones that I do not know which one ones to join since there is only five days a week.
