    My daughter attended Maya Angelou the second semester of her sophomore year. Maya Angelou was a God sent. The teaching staff are experienced and work well with all the students. The students have a great rapport with the staff and seem to form a bond that goes beyond the normal student-teacher relationship. The enviroment is professional and nurturing. This school is excellent and a much needed entity. The class sizes are small and the curriculum is workable.
