Charles Drew Middle School Reviews
I attened Drew 89-92. Drew was a school that no one wanted to go to. There were kids in gangs and lots of other kids in gangs, but i have good memorys
I have just graduated from drew in the past year. The school was a good experience for me and gave me the oppurtunity to enter geat highschool, CAMS. But this following year drew has had some drastic changes. It is now year-round, only has grades 7-8 and has block schedule.
I was a student in the Magnet program in the early 80's. The curriculum was rigorous and the Teacher's set high learning expectations for the students. I am an Educator and thank Drew Magnet for instilling the value of a quality in education in me.
I think Drew was a great school. It was one of my greatest expiriences.
