As a former student, I tell any and all people considering this academy to pack their book bags and go running in the opposite direction for as far and fast as you can manage.

Compared to the public school offerings...this is heaven! No art, no music, no "fun"...oh...but my kid can read, write, and communicate like a human being and not get spit on in the hallways. Awesome school on the cutting edge of education. Thanks Gov. French.
