Arizona State University Preparatory STEM Academy Polytechnic Campus High School is a charter school located in Mesa, Arizona. Arizona State University Preparatory STEM Academy Polytechnic Campus High School is good for academics, focusing on Cambridge curriculum. Arizona State University Preparatory STEM Academy Polytechnic Campus High School is a good school for students who wish to have a small community, however its size may also deter its potential. There is currently construction to expand the school which is very promising, however it has caused this current school year to be a pain in the buttocks. There is a very active student community with many diverse clubs, happening almost every day. The student-teacher relationships are actually extremely refreshing, and shows how much the teachers care. The diversity has gotten so much better in recent years, and as the school expands, the diversity will follow.

Mrs. Keller, the principal at the school was horrible. She was never around to answer questions or return calls. She was always in her phone. The boys were always talking about how her dress was so revealing which made my daughter very uncomfortable. When students were presenting at big school events she was on her phone or not there. She had double standards for girls and boys. She has seen kissing several different men and having affairs with co-workers. Students threaten teachers and other students with weapons and nothing was done about it. Mrs. Keller really brings down the school.
ASU Prep is a small charter school that focuses highly on academics. Since my freshman year I was encouraged to do well, not because it would make them look better, but for my own personal benefit. They allowed me to skip math classes that I surpassed, which was the deciding factor for me when choosing high schools. While they do require extra credits than most high schools, (seniors don't get half days!) they truly prepare you for college applications and admissions. The association with ASU is pretty good, we're able to use their labs and buildings, and I was able to receive an internship at ASU Poly my senior year. The faculty is very transitional, and the admins are often hard to reach, but overall they aim to help. The counselor is very kind and very helpful to both students and parents. For a new school, they're pretty good.
