  • Young Womens Leadership Chartr High School reviewed

    My school is a very disciplined, zero tolerance school. My school gives your personality a certain attentiveness to it. You can always connect with a teacher because they are always available. Your teachers make each student feel like there own. No more being put into a category with hooligans. You are not stereotyped or labeled by the color of your skin or outside appearance but more so your personality and self discipline. Everyone is self-governed. We all have a sense of freedom and while not being leisure they create a relaxed environment. They will always invest as much time need to help or improve your academic scores. Every grade has special things they are rewarded for. The school is strict but when following the rules you are always rewarded. It always pays off. You make friends because not everyone is friendly but you will always have one person that has opened arms whether a teacher or a student. I like that there is a variety of people you encounter. They schedule meetings with people that can change the way we think. The dean is a very fun woman. Parents are highly involved with every students school life. No students discipline or academic scores go unnoticed.

Design Fail at Fred Anderson Dog Park?

The new park currently being built just south of 16th and Wabash has a very interesting "sail like" feature (photo above). It ought to be interested seeing how much snow it can collect/hold before ripping apart this Winter Season. Not sure what the designer was thinking?
