    this a wonderful charter school with Allegheny County Pennsylvania. My son has attended for four years and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. I have no problem recomending this school to any parent for their child K-5

    This is a terrific school for our children to attend especialy African-American childern. The staff consistenly provides structure and re-enforcement to education bulidling of strong positive personal and inter-personal relationships. They are encouraging and uplifting to the students and family for learning and the children are dedicated to studying. The school also provides an endorsement for self pride and awareness of African-American history and culture so that our children will have a strong sense of history self and commitment to learn and grow.
