I have attended this school during my junior year and will soon be attending senior year. This school is a wonderful opportunity to get the college experience in high school.

Here, you complete your high school credits and get dual enrollment credits. I will soon have enough college credits to get a general associate's degree with a strong likelihood of transferring to the university of my choice.

I also love the challenging environment that inspires me to do more. The high school I previously attended was too easy. At this school, I know that I am getting college credits allowing me to cut 2 years off of education. The teachers here are excellent and truly committed to their students' academic success, and I particularly love the friendly environment and fun extracurriculars.

One thing I would say is lacking is the sports environment. There are intramurals for the most part, but some sports like soccer and tennis can be played with other high schools.

I love Collegiate High School! It has helped me prepare for college in a big way. I have gotten to experience a variety of college classroom settings all while being in high school!
Everything about it! There is much more freedom to just go to school without people hovering over you and the pressures of regular high school. Bullying is non-existent and all you have to do is sign in every day you have class. It is incredibly efficient because you can save money on general education classes so that when you transfer to a 4-year (at least in my case) you don't have to pay the crazy high costs for basic classes.
