    My school is good.... educational wise but they don't have sports and cubs for high school. Most of the clubs are limited only to Middle School...( Probably because they want them to stay and not leave like all the other 8th graders in 2012-2013)

    This is a wonderful charter school that gives girls the opportunity for a great public education. The girls get to do all kinds of hands on learning. They have a number of enrichment activities like after school STEM Program Cool Women Hot Jobs and a full time college counselor working with students on college access. This is school has dedicated teachers and administrators who love to teach girls!
