Even though we have high scores and are one of the best schools in the district, the environment is terrible. The administration tries to pander to students for more money and better scores, which results in promises to students that never come to fruition or were never there in the first place. There is barely any school spirit and the school can be very unwelcoming at times. The building is overcrowded! The admin and faculty preach about success, but if an opportunity arises that would help a student, but not the school, the encouragement stops and is replaced with open hostility. At the root of all the issues is the admin act like our school is a top ranking school in the nation while managing it like a lower tier public school.

Being a small school, collegiate has offered me many opportunities that I would not be exposed to at any other high school. We are offered amazing internship opportunities geared towards our personal interests. One of the most rewarding aspects of collegiate is that we are connected with two of the most prestigious universities in Missouri (Washington University and St. Louis University). This allows students to become accustomed with these colleges which they have a high possibility of attending. The teachers at collegiate are phenomenal as well. I have never been at a school where teachers have been so invested in seeing you succeed. I don’t give collegiate 5 stars because of administrative personnel. I feel that the leader of our school is not setting students up for success. Collegiate has been amazing overall. Not only have I learned academically, but I have also learned life lessons that I wouldn’t learn anywhere else.
I am apart of the second graduating class at CSMB. In order to get into the school, I had to score proficient or advance on my 8th grade MAP tests and interview with the new principal. During my interview, the principal talked about his desire to hand pick every student that entered that school. He wanted to place in the top ten in the state. My parents were pleased when I was accepted. I wasn't so sure.

My first year I didn't do too well. I was not prepared for the rigor the school offered. It took me a minute to figure out how to navigate through the academic lessons, but eventually I got it. Every semester I improved and I graduated prepared for college. I would definitely recommend this school. I'm not going to lie and say that the school is easy, because it wasn't. What I will say is it prepared for a successful college experience. College is almost easy as compared to my experience at CSMB. I would recommend this school to anyone in the St. Louis City.
