My experience at Med ed Prep was okay. I liked that the school gives opportunities for medical internships, as well as teacher internships, which is a great way to gain experience in the medical and teaching fields. I would like to change the fact that the school has changed its name to Academy of Science and Innovation and made so many other changes. It was a bit of an inconvenience for students to find out their junior year of high school that the school is changing into a more STEM focused learning environment, when that was not what they originally had signed up for when they first enrolled into the school. Overall my experience at the school was great, I learned so many things that I am now ready to take with me to college and apply to the real world.

This school offers a lot of potential, however they have recently had a merge with another CREC school, and have now become predominantly STEM school. Nonetheless, the teachers in the high school are wonderful, they push their students, and provide any resources and assistance the students request for. In addition, The administration is wonderful, and are committed to the students' success.
While at this school I can say I really enjoyed that it was a small community with kids that have been there since the school opened. It was a little family at school, with drama, heartbreaks, lessons, and just an open environment to be yourself. This school was a home away from home. There were teachers that treated you as if you were there own kid. They gave you one on one and treated you with respect. From 6- 12 grade I can honestly say that it was a blessing being able to attend a tiny small community school like this one.
