Downtown College Preparatory Middle School Reviews

My experience at Dcp el Camino was alright, the teachers were teaching good as well but the only thing I didn't like was that there were no mirrors in the bathroom and the fact that there are 5 grades that would mess up the new building. The school wouldn't be as organized as I would have liked it. When it was time to go to lunch it would be so crowded with the 5 graders running around, in my opinion, they should have 6 and 5 graders have a separate time of lunch and 8-7 a different. The furniture was very good it was like you were in college but the discipline with the little kids wasn't as good as it should be for them to be able to take care of the new building.

MY experience at DCP was quite normal. It is a school so then it means that there will be drama with the students, especially the 7th graders. It is fun being with friends and hanging out with them. Also, it doesn't really have a lot of students which is a good thing because we pretty much know each other.
