Coliseum College Prep Academy Reviews

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.
Being as it is a small middle and high school in East Oakland, it might might be easy to make the assumption of it being a weak school with limited resources. Yet, it is the exact opposite of this. Being a small school, it allows for one on one connection for student and faculty. Most of the students are first generation and this comes in handy when filling out applications like FAFSA, the Dream Act, UC apps, or any another college app as many of us have never seen applications like these before. I give my utmost respect for this school, as it the reason I feel college ready!
