Cardinal Ritter College Prep High School is an all black Catholic private school located in St.Louis, Missouri. This school is perfect for minorities, as it shows a wide range of black culture throughout the school. While teaching about God, teachers also teach us academics that prepares us for College. We have college course and honor/ap classes, as well as different clubs and sports. I like the most about this school is how independent and smart the students are. We have so many young entrepreneurs, lawyers, engineers, doctors, and etc. One thing I would like to see a change of is to have more classes that teaches about home economics, businesses, and cooking.

I am currently a senior and one thing I can say is that this school taught me how to be a leader. The cafeteria provides delicious food like burgers, quesadillas, and chicken, they also have a healthy section that contains fruit and salads. Most of the teachers stay after school if students require help. Also, this school provides college credit classes for students that reaching for the sky. The diversity of the school is okay. The majority of the school is black with 2% of Mexicans. In our school, we have a hallway and a stairway dedicated to the art program. Tons of paintings were painted by the students that have graduated. For Mass, we have a choir that sings gospel songs that makes the students want to clap their hands in praise God. Overall I believe that Cardinal Ritter College Prep is a good school.
Cardinal Ritter College Prep (CRCP) is a small school with a big heart. CRCP has given me the tools to be prepared for college by having a variety of college credit courses, the ability to take college course while attending high school, and test preparation courses. Also, CRCP makes provision to expose students to college as early as freshman year. Since CRCP is a small school, expect some things to not be a prevalent as if it were a large school. For example, CRCP is just now implementing a musical instrument program. Also, CRCP does not have a designated STEM Lab. These are just a few things that are in the works. However, I feel that I have not missed out on anything as it relates to preparing for college and the world.
