Marquis Anderson, 17, began attending Upward Hope Academy in October when his family moved from San Antonio. His former school didn't transfer some materials, so Anderson, a sophmore, would have had to begin at Ball High School as a freshman, he said. "I felt like I was a good student, but I didn't feel like I was getting the attention I needed from teachers,"Anderson said."I feel like I'm getting more help and attention I need to pass my classes. It's a much better environment." He will receive his high school diploma Saturday.
