Ceiba College Preparatory Academy Reviews
Ceiba College Prep is a very small school, however, there are more teachers and staff that can help you on topics individually. I have learned new things in my classes such as English vocabulary and math. The classes are very small so that everyone can follow along easily. There are some not so great things about this school like the lack of subjects and the very small space the school has. Finally, this school is very good for learning many things but just like any school there are some low points about it.
On the day I first attended Ceiba, I was really nervous about being part of an academic community. I had no friends, and I was worried that I would not fit in with the other students. I also suffered from Autism, which made my social skills weak. Luckily, most of the kids welcomed me to Ceiba, and soon after, I felt excited to learn. Over the years, I got to learn more about my classmates and teachers. They were all very nice, and we loved our school. Ceiba has helped me learn how to socialize with others and help learn to be independent. Although there were times that were pretty rough, I managed to get through the difficulties and prepare for college. I am about to graduate 12th grade, and I will always remember Ceiba for being the best school I have ever gone to. I will also remember the teachers and classmates that I will always remember for the rest of my life!
I was part of the first graduating class from Ceiba. I attended for both Middle and High School (2008-2015). We were labeled as the "guinea pigs" because the school was constantly changing and evolving around us every year. Because of these constant changes and the fact it was a new school, we had to endure a lot of rule changes, relocations, and instability within the staff. Our school was very keen on putting a focus on our schoolwork and that is all that matters to them. College is made the top priority which isn't helpful to everybody once they leave High School. Because we were so different from other schools (not in a good way), we had a lot of catching up with the rest of the world because we were left behind when we should have been driven forward in life. The founders of Ceiba and similar schools do not have good sight as to what a good person and good scholar should actually be.
