School Reviews

We are happy with the school and its mission. The school gives students the realization and support to pursue higher education once they graduate. Their mission is to empower students from traditionally underserved communities to become change agents for issues and people they care about through the participation of civic engagement within their community and the world. If you are looking to venture out and try a project-based program with engaged educators, I highly recommend We The People High School in Long Beach.
