Legal Prep Charter Academy Reviews

I like how the teachers are very involved with the students. Make sure the students get the time they need after and before school if they are not understanding the concept in class. I like how close the students are with each other and they make a stand for what they believe, I love how comfortable the students are with sharing their personal lives and feelings with the staff because of the trust they built with that person. What I feel like we need to improve on as a whole is how we communicate with each other.

Legal Prep is a Great Highschool to attend. While at Legal Prep I not only received education but knowledge about being an adult. The teachers show they care about the students education, and life after Highschool.
Legal Prep, in my opinion, is a very good school. The atmosphere is very strict, but the teachers and administrators really want to see the students do great ! So far all the teachers that i have encountered are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that the students are prepared to go off into the world.
