Mission Heights Preparatory High School Reviews

I was a transferred student when i went to mission heights i was from another country, going to a different place and different school was a bit hard for me since i was born and raised in a different country, i had a very different language and i know nothing about the culture that im gonna live in as soon as school started i had a scary feeling about going to school and to a new place, i was filled with anxiety thinking i would feel different and out of place.

thats what i thought but when i started going to mission heights i felt nothing, i didn't feel that i was gonna be left out cause of being different, instead i felt comfortable and relieved cause they treated me like a family, i felt the care and love i felt the same in everything, i felt like i was home, i didn't feel any discrimination to who i am and who i was especially the teachers they try and connect with students and treat them like their own family. going there was the best decision i made!

I used to live in California, I moved to Arizona and started school at mission heights half way through my junior year. I am now a graduating senior this year, I can not tell you how much Mission heights Preparatory has impacted my life. I have never gone to a school where I have felt so accepted and so celebrated for all my accomplishments. The principle knows everyone by first name, greets them every morning and when they leave. Mission Heights has prepared me for college like no other high school. They care about every single one of us.
Some of the teachers were amazing, but some we're way too harsh on their students in ways that caused a lot of anxiety. The dean there is really rude and openly racist to their students. The schedule is short but there can be excessive amounts of homework. Sometimes teachers didn't have education plans for the classes. Doesn't really prepare you for college as much as they say they do. Food isn't great either

Its a small school with a short schedule, recently they started grading D's and are considering fridays off so I would say its worth it in the long run
