Chandler Preparatory Academy is the kind of school that is great in retrospect—strict dress codes, disposal of modern culture, and lack of electives tend to blind current students of the rigorous program. But while some of the school's arbitrary restrictions are a tad unnecessary (some even actively prevent students from preparing for the social skills of college, which is ironic given the school's name), it helps students develop a critical acumen: it guides one to a thought process that facilities independent and analytical thought, which is indispensable come one's college career. Given the sociopolitical, separatist origins of the charter school system, however, the school's diversity leaves a lot to be desired.
Great Heart Academies are an excellent way to prepare for college. Not only are you academically challenged in math and science, but you get to delve into great books. It was challenge for me and stressful but in the end, it is definitely worth it!
