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, 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.
If I were to choose between starting all over (from freshman year) or go to jail for 10 years. Where is my cell and do I have a roommate? Don't waste your time. I attended all four years and nothing has changed except the lunch which made it worst. They have clubs but the clubs they do have don' t last long. They don't have their own gym. Nothing is "legal" about the school. Except when they called the police on some students to stop them from fighting. Please don't send your student here. This school robbed me from my life and I can't do nothing but be upset.
