Arizona College Prep Academy (ACPA) Reviews
I honestly hate it here. Most of the teachers are leaving, and also many students. The 2019-2020 school year is going to be very bad. We mostly learn science, but mostly English. A little bit of history, and and little to know math. As a junior, I learned alegebra 1 when I was supposed to be doing algebra 2, now I am so behind. And the princple is very restrictive to both the students and teachers, she micromanages everything. She's the principle, teacher college couselor and administrator.
I am an ACPA alumni. I have never met a more dedicated group of teachers and staff who are always willing to go above and beyond for each individual student. During my time at ACPA I was introduced to a way of learning that allowed me to truly connect the information I was receiving with my own interests, talents, and abilities. The teachers challenged me in ways I hadn't experienced at previous schools and their encouragement and guidance taught me how to approach the world with confidence and curiosity. The best part about ACPA is the sense of community it instills in you. We were encouraged to know everyone in our school, not just our class, and to have conversations that would foster appreciation for each individual and their experiences. I would and do recommend this school to everyone, as it made a rebellious, know-it-all like me say, "This is what it's about."
I have the pleasure of interacting with several ACPA students as they have moved on to college and careers. One of the things that is very gratifying is that these students reflect back on their time at ACPA as a time where they learned to "think" about thinking, where they learned how to reflect on their thinking and actions, where they learned how to advocate for themselves and where they learned the value of participating in a greater community. One doesn't see these outcomes on a standardized test ; however, they are the the intrinsic values and practices that make for well balanced, productive members of society. Thanks to the staff - who work so effectively with the young people attending ACPA.
