My experience at Collegiate Preparatory Academy has been pretty terrible. Definitely not a school for children with a bright future who excel in academics. The students are out of control and constantly ditching class and acting immature while the teachers and staff do very little to improve the school's environment. There's several fights every semester making it feel rather unsafe to even walk in the hallways. The academics is also poor and does very little to reinforce what has been learned, which is very little since it takes the students about 2-3 weeks to complete an assignment. Just a terrible school in general.

The school in general is amazing. Teachers do everything in their power to get get students start taking college classes their junior year, if possible. Although, I do want to see a few changes, such as adding more clubs and have students get involved in more extracurricular activities. Also, provide more elective classes, such as French classs, theater, engineering class, and etc. I’m corruently a senior at this school and I’m taking three different college classes. I will be graduating with honors and by taking the college classes, I already save up around 6,000 dollars for college.
As far as extravagant high school experience went, i was very disappointed. My fisrt 2 years here we were treated like middle schoolers. But I was able to get opportunities that not many other schools offer to there students. Including taking concurrent enrollment classes and class at Community college of Auora Eventually things got better. The teachers i had for the most part were understanding and I got a lot of time to ask questions on a one on one basis. The staff for the most part truly cares for your successes both inside school nd out side lf school. I always felt like there was 3 or more people I could go to if i ever had ANY type of problem.
