Last year was my last year at Aspire and I'm really glad I went there. In my freshman year of high school, I am taking geometry and I learned all of the things that we have gone over so far in the class in my years at aspire.

This is truly an exceptional middle school. Aspire is a magnet school and they have a high ratio of challenge academy and TAG teachers who don't seem to alter their curriculum down for the "regular" kids.
