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.

I'm currently a senior at Imagine and I think my favorite thing about the school that's been consistent is the smaller class sizes. I like them the most because you get to know each other and you get to develop relationships with them. Along with that, if needed, you get one on one time with any teacher. If I could change something about my school it would be the sports in terms of how much the school cares for them if that makes sense. I'd want the school to show more support and make more of an effort to provide the school teams with better equipment so that the students can not only show their intelligence in the classroom but can also show what they're made of on the field or courts.
This school is amazing! I've learned so much about myself, others and just amazing knowledge I have that these amazing teachers have taught me!
If I'm ever in need of help I can easily go to admin or one of my teachers.
