Columbia Prep is an amazing school. My time there is a very distinguishable life experience. I think specifically as a person of color, while I could have gone without certain negative experience, it was a very positive time to learn about affirming your identity in a place where the racial breakdown is reflective of the world. I think everyone who has a chance should definitely experience this wonderful place and all of it's resources.

Overall, the school provided me with the tools and resources to grow as a student and as a person. The various clubs and student groups offered my a place to make new friends and find my voice in my school community. Meanwhile The academic classes challenged me to thing critically and to and look at subject matter through multiple lenses. Although, it is worth noting, Columbia Prep doesn't seek to create a certain type of student or person. The institution simply provides of with the proper guidance to reach our full potential both inside and outside the classroom.
I definitely learned a lot going here, and I really appreciate the well-roundedness and poise that I gained from a private school experience. That being said, they do not fire bad teachers, so watch out if you get one, they're not very easy on grades, and the people that there tend to be somewhat superficial. I was able to find great friends and enjoy almost all of my years there though.
