Grand Prairie Collegiate Institute is a really good school to attend if you are seeking more rigorous courses. The classes are small which means you get more one-on-one with instructors, the smallest class I have had was six people in total. This is also a great school if you enjoy learning about engineering, instructors encourage students to get involved with engineering in ways other schools do not. We get to take duel credit classes and also online college classes, by the end of high school students will leave with an associates degree. This school has many perks but scholars have to also realize that this school does not offer sports teams and there are not to many people at the school so if you are a social butterfly or the athletic type then this school probably is not for you because it mostly focuses on education and pushing students to achieve things that other kids are age cannot.

It has a rigorous, college readiness environment that promotes lifelong learning and success. It has STEM, SkillsUSA, Plane Building, mostly all involving engineering, science, and math. The teachers have a very good communication with the students, which is good. Our school might not be big, but it''s worth it once you try it out.
Grand Prairie Collegiate helped me discover my passion for STEM and did help prepare me for college. I believe there should be more enforcement in sciences as there are no labs available to students. Other than that, I believe if any student has a passion for Engineering, they should attend GPCI.
