Arizona College Prep may be a small high school, however they are a great option for those who want to be prepared for college. The things that I like about the school is the diversity that resonates throughout the campus. The small population helps in building the way that the students establish a family type environment. The counselors are engaged in their duties and are on task in helping their students succeed in the real world. On an academic level the teachers know what they are teaching and teach it with enthusiasm so that by the end of the day the students have learned a sufficient amount of information that they will be able to retain. Being that the school is a college prep school, it is only to the students benefit that the most if not all of the core classes are honors or AP classes, no on level classes. What I would like to see changed is the expansion of classes that the students can take instead of mainly the core classes.

Arizona College Prep is a small slice of Chandler's school district built around the education of honors students. Most of its courses are honors or AP level, with only a few core classes (like core Physics). I personally love the small school vibe, and I love the fact that most of my teachers strive to see their students succeed. I have bonded with teachers as closely as I have with my peers because many of them display a sense of mutual respect. The councilors at ACP are also fantastic. They are involved and constantly in contact with their students, and their availability is pretty open throughout the year. If you desire an education that will prepare you well for college and beyond, Arizona College Preparatory - Erie is the place to be.
Growth has changed this school. It used to be so kind, friendly and approachable. That is no longer true. The teaching staff changes a lot and the administration has horrible customer service issues. They have forgotten who their customer is. The Principal is great, hard working and committed. Unfortunately the front office staff and counselors run the school. They are frustrating, evasive, rude and outwardly hostile. It is uncomfortable to communicate with them regarding anything. They treat parents with disdain. The reason why I gave the school a good grade is because of the education my kids have received. I believe they are prepared for success because of the caring teachers and my parenting. If it were up to the front office or the counseling department, my kids would be floundering losers. They don't give a crap or don't know better. When a counselor tells you that it is not important to take the ACT test more than once, it is clear she knows nothing. Worthless at best.
