    La Academia has a been a wonderful experience for daughter. She was very nervous going into middle school in August last year but the La Academia principal and teachers have made the transition so easy for her. Unlike many of the other local middle schools my daughter actually gets homework almost every day of the week and lots of it! She is taking Ballet Folklorico and Piano for her electives and I have seen a very positive change in her self-image and self-esteem. I would definitely recommend this school to any student who is willing to be challenged and have a very structured school life. Thank you to the La Academia administrators faculty and staff for making my daughter's middle school experience challenging yet positive and enriching.

The school is most recomended my me and my friends at school because we have such a good time the teachers and school counseler is the best. The counseler Micheal Davis is the most helpfull nice sweet kind and very funny the school is the most dependable for parents. And every time school is let out at 5;00 pm i cant wait to go back. Go La Academia!

    I'm so glad my child got the opportunity to attend La Academia. I believe he has flourished in so many ways because of the opportunities presented to him at this school. I feel he would have continued to struggle at his old school but thanks to the staff and students at La Academia he's gained a sense of self-worth and accomplishment.
