Alcott College Prep is a small tight-knit school that glorifies its community. With Alcott being a small school, this comes with many advantages and disadvantages. Alcott's small size allow students to build relationships with others and even other teachers. This, in turn, has helped many students learn because they are able to have their teachers and students as reliable resources. But, I hope to see Alcott have more available resources. The school lacks many facilities, clubs and over resources that students can use to become more successful in school. A small expansion of the school will help create facilities and at the same time it can remain to have the benefits that make Alcott an overall great school.
Alcott College Prep, is a very small school. The school body consists of roughly 315 students. Most would think that attending a small school, puts them at a disadvantage. By attending a small school, your classes are easy to get to. Your teachers build a personal relationship with you. Everybody knows everybody.
