Mission Collegiate High School Reviews

I am currently a sophomore at Mission Collegiate High School. My experience in this school has been very good due to the fact that the teachers are very helpful and understanding. This high school's mission is to allow high school students to graduate with a associates degree by the time we are done with high school. Although Mission Collegiate is a very good school, school everywhere can be very expensive. I live in a low income neighborhood and i'm currently attending college classes that are paid by my high school. This also affects the students that attend my high school. Many students that attend Mission Collegiate High School come from low income families, so the majority always strive to do well in their classes. Mission Collegiate High School is also one of the few high schools in my area that allow students to take college classes and to understand where some of the students come from.

Mission Collegiate High School is an early college high school located in the lower Rio Grande Valley. It was built for students with low-income families to attend in order to ensure they would be able to attend universities. The goal of the school and of its students is to graduate high school with an associate's degree.
My experiences at this school have been mostly pleasant, though there could be some changes. I really liked how the teachers and faculty really did have an interest in helping out students and making them give their best in all their work. The atmosphere of the school was overall friendly, though it at times lacked school spirit. Some changes that are starting to be made include more pep-rallies and more school activities that show students why Mission Collegiate is one of the best schools in the nation.
In the 7 years of being in existence, Mission Collegiate has gained a reputation of being a rigours school focusing of having their students take college credits and AP credits. In addition, they also work along with the students to make sure they will be able to graduate with their Associates degree before they graduate from high school. Teachers will sacrifice their time in order to help students with anything and care about having their students succeed. Although I have already graduated with my associate degree, I will never regret ever applying to this school. Even though I did miss all those typical high school experience such as parties, football pep rally and fights, I was able to change my habit of procrastination, gained college credits, and learned that to always challenge yourself because you'll never what you're capable of. This school is tough and the amount of work you'll get is a bit overwhelming but in the end it will be all worth it. GO KNIGHTS!!!
