Northwest Pennsylvania Collegiate Academy Reviews
Collegiate Academy, in the midst of the city is a culture shock to children from low-income, minority backgrounds who didn't have as much opportunities or facilities as those who were from the West side or the surrounding townships. It's an above average high school overall and does the best it can with the limited resources it has and which the district provides. I enjoyed being a student here, but a lot of its culture has been lost especially after drastic changes in the school district occurred forcing the high school to carry more students through a magnet program that did lower some expectations. Its still a pretty good school, 9/10.
Great Teachers and an amazing learning environment. The classes are graded at an honors level and for some may seem demanding but most students are able to get in the flow very quickly due to the type of environment that the teachers and students create. The culture at this school is very proud and even basing the school motto as "Pride, Honor and Respect". As a college preparatory school, this school and the resources that you can find and are taught follow the schools goal to prepare all of its graduates for college; even demanding that you must get accepted into at least 1 college to receive your transcripts when you graduate.
Collegiate Academy was very academic centered as I came in as a freshmen. However as I progressed through there was slow digression of care among faculty and students. There used to be a dress code, and much higher standards. Furthermore the building is falling apart due to its old nature. The best part of the school is that you get to know everyone and everyone knows you. But this allows for a lot of drama to circulate within the school. The staff is very split in that some are very dedicated and involved but others not so much. I would highly recommend the math and science departments especially.
