Coliseum College Prep Academy Reviews

CCPA is a great school with a lot of support and encouragement from staff to get students ready for college. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming! It is a very close community where teachers know students very well and there is always a teacher eager to help you with schoolwork or other things outside of school. This is great especially when you need a letter of rec! The one back draw is that it is a small school so you don't get the huge high school experience. They also don't have a huge selection of sports but that doesn't mean students can't decide to start a new sport. They have recently started to add more clubs and activities that students can be a part of.

Although this high school is full of educational opportunities, it lacks in the way they handle student involvement. It isn't a real high-school experience, we never have any fun exciting rallies to improve the schools community spirit and strength. There is never space for students to have exciting days or breaks, because of how focused the school is on grades. They also lack on providing a support system for students. When a student is acting up, they immediately get sent out of class and the school does not try to understand how the students problems at home impact them. It makes students feel unimportant and like they are being ignored. I hope this school can realize that their students holistic health is far more important than their academic achievement.
What i liked about Coliseum College Prep Academy was the support we get as seniors. We have many staff that have helped us with our college applications and other things in general. Although some teachers and staff are unfair sometimes with certain students, it still has been a good school with helping us to be better students and get a good education. Since 6th grade they have pushed me and many students to do good and better at school and to try harder so we won’t give up. What i would like to see change would be fairness to all students such as not only certain students should get into trouble and others don’t.
