The experience of this school is very good, teachers are always on our tails talking to us about what we would like to do in the future, which benefits us very much. I feel very safe in that school, to be honest i wouldn't recommend any changes at all. The reason is because there isn't any really negative things around the school, it's always positive. Like for example, the teachers are very respectful to their students always doing anything to keep their kids with good grades. That is mainly one of the negative factor, but overall this school is one of the best things i have ever attended. Therefore, i would recommend this school to any parents that is looking for any help for their kids to have a successful future.

As a sophomore that attends Math and Science Collge Preparatory, I would say it is a 4/5 star school. Since it is a STEM school, we have the chance to explore the different pathways: computer science, biomedical science, and engineering. These pathways offer AP and honor classes which are really helpful and amazing because of the work we perform during these classes. Another thing that is outstanding about this school is the size. Our school is basically one building and what makes that wonderful is that since there are fewer students, the student-teacher ratio is not that large.
The academic competition at this school is a lot less intense compared to other public schools. Class settings are much smaller and intimate, group activities are constantly implemented, and the CER (claim evidence reasoning) essay format is driven into students. The culture of this school is vastly different. It’s more of a tight community, with faculty and teachers that go beyond their paid efforts to help students in need. Overall it’s been a good experience.
