Matt Garcia Career & College Academy Reviews

3 reviews
It was fine when it first opened up but then they started trying to fill seats with more students, not giving interviews, and looking at student's behavioral problems prior to attending like they use to so it all went to hell. No discipline is really taken unless there is physical violence which means that bullying was never taken seriously and the teachers and staff were so unprofessional sometimes even encouraging fights or being happy that it happened between children they don't like. Overall this is not a very good environment for you to thrive in which is why many students left to go to other schools in the area and why I am currently taking the homeschooling route which is so much better for me.

I went there my junior and senior year, when I started there I wasn't on the best path to graduate but they showed my the right path so I ended up graduating 3 in my class with a 3.5 gpa
Other then the drama and fights at this school, i love it. You can graduate early and you become friends with jist about everyone. U can meet one on one with the teachers.
