Princeton Alternative School Reviews

Great School Report From an Out-of-Stater!

By on

I'm an outsider looking in.  I'm an Out-of-State Grandmother who lived in Birmingham during the Civil Rights Days and how well do I remember those hard times for Blacks in that City.  The struggles of fighting for the Black children's right to go to any school of their choice, fair housing, etc.  Looking at the overall test scores of the Birmingham School district, I was shock and concerned about my granddaughter's education.  It is sad with this City having such a strong history, I thought the area scores would have been much higher.  But, when I saw Princeton Alternative School's test score (10), I was impressed to no end.  Hope is still alive in Birmingham!  I thought this is the place for my smart granddaughter who is 4 and beyond her age mentally.  I will do all I can to get her in this school.  Princeton Alternative School keep up the good work because the children are our future!
