Hmong College Prep Academy High School Reviews

My experience at HCPA has been great. I love how welcoming and friendly the staffs and students are, it feels like home. The staffs make sure that us students are keeping your grades up and that we understand what's being taught. I love how HCPA provides transportation no matter how far you're living. They provide AP classes, CIS classes, and PSEO. Each year the school takes students on a out of state trip to tour colleges. This year we are going to California during Spring break. They also have many programs and extracurricular activities that will help boost student's resumes. One thing I would add to the school is more electives because everyone has different interests, other than that I love the school!

The things I like about Hmong College Prep Academy are the teachers/counselors, college fair, and career fair. Most of the teachers and counselors at Hmong College Prep are easy to connect with. They are also willing to talk to you on a personal level. During these college fair and career fair, you will go around asking representatives from different colleges and careers about what they offer. Even though Hmong College Prep Academy provides great teacher connections and college/career opportunities, they fall short when it comes too diversity and electives. Being called “Hmong College Prep Academy” will usually attract Hmong people. This contradicts with the name of the school because in college there will not be one main race. I would like my school to try to appeal to other races and not just Hmong. Another shortcoming is that they don’t provide enough electives for students. In the future I would want Hmong College Prep Academy to try and expand their elective classes.
Hmong College Prep is a very safe school. All of the staff here are friendly and have great humors. It feels like a second home to me. Although sometimes having them come and nag you about safety,etc can be annoying but they really care about our safety. One thing I would like to see improve from this school is the lack of electives. I just don't see many opportunities for high school students. Also, I would love in the future that this school have student council or actual afterschool programs. School programs/ clubs. It would be so great for the future students.
