Aspire Vanguard College Preparatory Academy Reviews

Overall, I had it great. I always had great teachers who really cared about their students. But recently, the school has been all over the place. Many teachers act like students and the students are distrespectful to everyone. They are moving to a new location and getting a new principal, so things might turn around...but I honestly don't know if it will go back to the amazing school it once was. No AP classes are offered, so if you want something extra for your high school transcripts, work with MJC to get credits done.

I had a good 6 years here, I loved most of it. It really depends on you, but I wouldn't send my kids here. Especially after the truths Ive seen in the past few months.

The main thing that I like about Vanguard is the fact that they give you an opportunity to take college level courses to prepare me for college. The classes I have taken at MJC have really got me settled into a college level experience
Although this school is not big on sports, its main priority is urging students to go to college. They want there students to be successful and have many options for their future. All graduating students are required to graduate with at least 15 college credits and an acceptance letter to a four year institution. Recently we invested our time in to having a Key Club. We volunteer and help others.
