I've been at this school for four years and it's been a roller coaster. Do I hate this school? Honestly no. Do I wish school started at 9 instead of 7? Yes, I do. I miss my sleep since homework is a lot depending on the classes you get. But when it comes to the bullying policy, they're very effective and I really appreciate that they care. I used to get bullied because of my stutter, but the situation was handled immediately and didn't have any process after that, none at all. The sports are limited since we are a small school, but the school spirit is definitely there, especially at basketball games! Overall, this was a cool school and I've made amazing friends here and the teachers(most of them anyway) are likey!

Despite MSCP's size, I find myself feeling extremely comfortable in the environment because of the attention I receive from my teachers. I've grown up in small schools, so I guess you could say I grew accustomed. I always seek 1-on-1 time from all of my teachers because I like the guidance they provide me with. The staff and student body is respectful and I feel challenged in the educational sense.
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.
