College Park Academy is a good school for students that like to work on their on like me. However because it is online, blended learning school, it can be challenging at time when there are assessments taken but occur technical difficulties due to WiFi connection problems.However aside from technical problems, there are many teachers you can reach out to for help and help you prepare for college and career readiness.

This is an okay school. The only things that makes this school okay is that it helps you get ready for college by supplying college credits. Most of the teachers do not actually know what they are doing. Some teachers just like having power over the students. Some teachers are also really weird around students. One teacher in particular would ask students why they are going to the bathroom. He also mysteriously left this school. His grading system is also unfair. He would only favor this one student and would sabotage other students for that particular student. Sometimes when the "troublemakers" would try to do some work, he would try and sabotage them. The grading system is also very, very, VERY unfair and rigged. When a student would correct a teacher they would claim the student was "refuting them". This is only my opinion based on what I have heard and seen.
College Park Academy is good for college readiness. It gives you credits for college which is good for your future. However, there is a lot that needs to change. First off is the food. Once I experienced a old french fry in my milk. Also, there is sometimes hair in the chicken. Also, there is this one teacher that is very unreasonable. He is always acting weird around students and is always threatening PS 74s and detentions. There is also another teacher in the seventh grade that is even worse. He never teaches the class yet assigns you quizzes and tests. The sad part is, they count towards a grade. All in all, the only good part about this school is the college credits.
