The teachers and the role they play in making sure that all students, including myself are successful in all their subjects. The teachers I encountered are truly committed to their job and to the further development of each students’ academics. I would like to see more after-school activities for different student interested in different activities.

-Excelsior Prepatory HS can be expressed in a variety amount of words. It has its good and bads when it comes to certain situations. It’s located in a campus which is shared with 3 other schools.4schools in total and out of the 4 excelsior is one of the best, staff does try to push scholars to their upmost best and reach their success . Any how on the other side I would say some of the bad things are one, the lack of communication teachers have with scholars relationship wise, and facility meaning how things are run. Some students are put in honor classes to try and receive advanced regents and some aren’t just for the simple fact that they weren’t aware, I would like everyone to be equal and receive the same knowledge as one another , so no one can say that they’re better than one another. So there could be plenty of improvements made to help my school become the best of the best.So I just hope for the best but still prepare for the worst.
My experience at Excelsior Preparatory High School was decent. I must say there is favoritism between students & facility members. If the teachers like you, they will give you a good grade whether you do the homework or not. If they don't like you it doesn't matter how much work you hand in you'er almost guaranteed no more than a C. The culture in the school was amazing when it came to athletics. Nobody has more school spirit than Excelsior that's one of the best parts of the school.
