I appreciate that when a student needs help with something, the teacher is always willing to help that student and keeps a positive mindset. It is evident that the teachers care for the students' educations and their understanding of each subject. At Arete Preparatory Academy, the love for learning is very much encouraged, while the students' want for good grades is put aside. Because of this, the teachers make learning a fun experience by giving their students challenges. These challenges allow the students to struggle and from that, gain more knowledge through experience. Something I would like to see change is the amount of attention given towards the campus, especially in the younger students. If each student takes responsibility for something as simple as their own trash, then all of the students can work in a cleaner environment.

Arete Preparatory Academy is a school that really provides the best preparation possible for going into college. The teachers are extremely friendly and are easily approachable for any help that is needed. Tutoring is also available for all students and provides a one on one learning opportunity that most schools do not offer. Because the school is centered around the pursuit of truth, beauty, and goodness the students society is positively influenced by this. With a smaller community it is also much easier to make friends. One area which I see needs improvement is the sports program. There does not seem to be much participation or competitiveness when it comes to athletics at this school. If this can be improved the sports program will grow more prominent.
It was a great school, that really focused on building a community of scholars. It was focused on asking questions and finding the deeper meaning of things. The teachers cared about each of there students, and were always willing to take extra time to help struggling students. The structure of the school is great, I was in the same class with the same people 7th grade up until I graduated, and some of my best friends came from there. I Loved that school, and I plan on sending my own kids there someday.
