Overall, Medgar Evers College Preparatory School is a great school; an excellent school! It's filled with several classes, and excel in providing AP classes to prepare their students for college. Also, their "Smart Scholar" program gives student the real college experience, by enrolling them into college classes that they take in Medgar Evers College. My complaints are the lack of space, lack of an auditorium and gym, and some of the staff not being knowledgeable on the changes happening in their own schools. Despite these problems, I enjoyed attending Medgar Ever College Preparatory School.

What I like about Medgar is that they have a college program that lets you complete two years of college while attending high school classes. This helps students with college readiness. The teachers are very involved with students education especially with hands on learning. There extra curricular activities include clubs, student government organizations and sports. There were also trips to local museums and a program where students can take college tours and learn about the financial aid process. Overall this school helps students get ready for life in the future.
The best thing about MECPS is the arrange of classes it has to offer to its students. As someone planning to become involved in STEM when I go off to college, Medgar Evers College Prep does well in providing me with the experience I need in a variety of courses, ranging from life and physical sciences, to mathematics and computing sciences. However, the organization of the school is very poor, and I'd like to see the staff and faculty improve their communication with the students and access to resources.
