Chandler Prep prepares students for college by challenging students to be the best they can be. Though the work load can be intimidating for someone entering from a public school, those that grow up in the charter school system typically thrive. In CPA, it is a close knit community where everyone knows everyone, and each student has a name and personality, and isn’t just a number. This school is great for anyone who is ready to work hard and try their best, and I’ve personally heard from many people that to adjust to college after the Chandler Prep curriculum is not as hard as many others students from other schools. There are plenty of clubs at CPA. Many athletes from CPA have gone on to play in college, and CPA’s no-cut policy gives everyone a chance to enjoy any sport they like, and learn fundamentals from the amazing coaches.

Chandler Prep is a great school that students a lot of opportunities for success! The teachers for the most part have degrees in their fields and are very helpful and knowledgeable. Counselors try to find time for every student. Colleges visit and provide information to Chandler Prep students. The school could use an upgrade in technology, however.
As a graduating senior, I found CPA's intentions are to better students and make them more well-rounded. I believe that this curriculum has a lot to offer. It helped me finds subjects I am now extremely passionate about and am going to pursue in college; courses I personally would not have chosen. This school also offers numerous sports programs and clubs. If you are looking for a school that has a rigorous curriculum that attracts the attention of colleges and a decent sports program that is welcoming to all, this is the school to go to. However, if you are someone who wants to be more active in things such as feminism, GSA's, take AP courses, or have a more intense sports program, this is not the school for you. Although CPA has its pros and cons, I have been extremely grateful for my education here. The environment is small, but inviting. The faculty is also extremely understanding and kind. I personally enjoyed the courses, faculty, and extra curriculars this school had to offer.
