I have attended Mickey Leland College Preparatory Academy since I was in the 6th grade, and I am now a Junior. I believe that I have received an excellent education and feel that I will be prepared for the rigor of college academics. The principal is approachable and really cares about his students. The teachers have high expectations, but provide support and help. The environment is safe, and good for learning. I recommend it as a wonderful institution of learning! The only downside is no girls, but there's plenty of time for that on the weekends.

Attending an all-male campus was a very beneficial to my school and future goals. It allowed me to reach my greatest potential and strive for academic success. Now, I am a mature leader around campus; I have taken the responsibility of motivating other students. I also want to be a role model and exemplify how a young man carries himself. One day, I plan on opening my own storefront and later franchising my business to other major cities.
Overall, my experience at MLCPA has been a good experience. Once you get past the fact you are attending an all male school, you can enjoy the fact that all the teachers are approachable and help ensure you understand the material, all of your peers are nice and friendly, and you are getting a good education. The one thing, I would like to see changed is the class ranking system, as this is a very small school. Our top 10% would be a normal school's top 1%, and this is unfair to those of us who have GPA's who would be in the top 10, but because of class size, we fall out.
