    Extracurriculars at CAPA - Creative & Performing Arts: I think whats so great about CAPA is whatever your interest is your allowed to explore it and given the tools to let it blossom for example what I've been doing since I joined and became president of the Black Student Union. Im also involved with almost every other club in this school and its great because we have such a wide range impact.

    Overall Experience at CAPA - Creative & Performing Arts: I think that I wouldn't have this experience anywhere else. I would be as involved as I am or any of the accomplishments I received without CAPA. I really think if I left in seventh grade I'd still be the same extremely shy and internal person who just has a blind eye for certain situations.

    Teachers at CAPA - Creative & Performing Arts: Most teachers understand that if we have to spend seven years of our life at this school that they want to get us ready for the real world. They constantly allow us to incorporate social issues into our lesson plans while preparing us for testing but most importantly life.

    Overall Experience at Allderdice High School: I am currently on the basketball team and our team wins many Championships. The students and staff are usually very nice and friendly.

    Teachers at Allderdice High School: Teachers at Allderdice will help students if needed. However, the school is over crowded and there are about 25 to 30 students in class. However, I do like my school and I have learned and accumulated a lot of knowledge over the years at m school.
