School Reviews

5   10/6/2012
I went to SCLA my junior year of high school and I absolutely do not regret s single moment of it! The teachers are compassionate about what they do, they take time to get to know each student, and try to help them on a personal level. I was behind in credits and almost did not pass high school. Going to SCLA, they picked me back up and gave me the WANT to go to school. I did my time at public schools, if I were to stay in them...I would probably have not graduated and dropped out. I loved my experience, I''m even inviting my teachers to my wedding. Warning though, if your child has trouble following directions, and has no want to learn or get along...they do NOT play games at SCLA, they will either put them in their place or kick them out.
