Capital Prep is one of a kind! Its is a PK 3 through 12th grade school. Capital Prep students, parents and staff are very close and have a strong bond we are one big extended family. However, Capital Prep is a Social Justice Theme School which empowers its students to lead with integrity, confidence, courage and conviction. Capital Prep also has a very competitive atheletic dept. As for academics Capital Prep is committed to providing the best college preparatory program available. As a junior Cprep I believe the academics requirements has helped me develop, as a well-rounded student grounded in the best of the academics and a social justice agent for change. My experience at Cprep has help me to think critically and cultivate life-long learning skills. Cprep staff and administration are committed to producing graduates who will thrive in college and beyond and act with integrity and self-discipline as good citizens of their country and the world.

Capital Preparatory Magnet School is an excellent school that focuses on social justice. It teaches their students to become leaders of change within their own community while also preparing them for college. Above all it presents students for many opportunities, for example, many students are eligible to take free college courses. Some students like myself are even able to do dual enrollment and complete their Associates Degree while in high school.
Capital Prep is a great school. The staff are supportive and caring. They do their best to help each and every student achieve academic success. The students that attend the school bring a positive vibe that, as a result, allows the learning community to flourish. As a whole, the attitude in the school allows the students to perform at their best ability and be proud of their achievements. If I could change one thing about Capital Prep, I would like to see more resources for the students. In order for the students to succeed, we need the resources to succeed, such as functioning technology and up-to-date textbooks. With the help of these resources, there will be no limit for the students. Overall, Capital Prep is a great school and every student that leaves the school will have a great chance at a successful future.
