This school has changed my life in the most amazing way. Currently, I am in my 2nd year of college and will graduate with honors hopefully as a pre-med student. Graduating high school from Multicultural Academy has help shaped the person I have become today. They amazing learning experiences I have gained both academically and socially has helped me thrive now. I would highly recommend this school to any parent that would like to see their child accomplish their goals and grow to make a difference in the world. I have attended this school for over 10 years and will hopefully bring my kids one day. Small learning environments, amazing staff, and many more opportunities. Don't listen to the negativity and make a difference in your child's life.
