I love how Imagine Prep provides a class specifically centered to prepare you for college and life. The class was called "College and Career Readiness" and taught by Mrs. Warner. I learned about different opportunities that one could have with a specific major and how to look for the college that best fits my needs. There was even a time in class where we researched different colleges and careers and presented them to the class. One of the greatest takeaways from the class was researching our dream cars and learning the difference between buying, leasing, and renting a car which we also presented in class. At the end of the semester the class got to dress up in interview attire and we practiced our interviewing skills that we had also learned in class. I am so grateful for Mrs. Warner because without her and that class I would not be where I am today. Because of that class, I was able to find my dream college and I am currently already a sophomore in college! Crazy how time flies!

On the positive side, a majority of the students here at Imagine Prep Surprise are welcoming and supportive of others, even newcomers! Academics are the main target with sports and the arts being put more on the back-burner for this school. There is very little music and art program availability here on the other hand.
Having attended 6th-12th grade, I feel that Imagine Prep has a great emphasis on academics with their Cambridge curriculum and being such a small school, you really feel that you get the attention you need from both teachers and administrators. However, being a small school there also isn't as many clubs/sports/elective classes as other, bigger schools have (although it is relatively easy to start up a club). The school also places a big emphasis on creating a comfortable environment for the kids with days such as Mix-It-Up Day. Overall, a rather good but fairly average high school experience.
