ACP-E seems very intimidating at first, but everyone is really all in the same boat. The teachers and staff encourage and push their students, and the counselors are always free and willing to talk. There is also a lot of opportunity to start new clubs or star in sports because of the size of the school. There are really no "groups" because the school is still relatively small, so every class is pretty close and intermingle despite their different friend groups. Tutoring is available everyday and teachers stay after to help their students. Overall, although ACP-E can be stressful, there are very good teachers, plentiful connections to colleges or internships, and a lot of opportunity. Just be sure to do your homework!

Overall ACP is a relatively good school, however it doesn't really live up to the hype surrounding it. Academics aren't that much different than the other schools in the district, and being a small school, there are limitations on what classes are offered, which can be mildly frustrating. Being a small school, there are benefits, but there are more glaring disadvantages, such as overcrowding or limited facilities. For example, there are only four science labs for a school of 800+ students, which forces some science classes to be held in regular classrooms without all of the equipment generally associated with the class.
Arizona College Prep Erie Campus (ACP) provides every student with opportunities to develop a requisite skillset, discover passions, and grow into a responsible, productive citizen. The academic rigor challenges students to persevere and prepares them for a future of success. The student body at ACP is supportive and encouraging; in a class of only 162 students, we seniors at ACP are a family that can lean on each other for support. I transferred to ACP from a charter school where I faced bullying on a daily basis; I immediately felt at home as I was welcomed by everyone. Since my transfer to ACP, I have not had to endure any bullying. However, every school has its problems. At ACP, the main problem is student-teacher relations. Teachers have the extraordinary opportunity to inspire students and create future world leaders. However, they also have the power to discourage.
