Being at People's Prep definitely prepared me for college. Every thing we did aligned our steps for the next four years at the University of our choice. My college counselors at the time were extremely helpful and always kept me on track. They were my family and always kept me on the right path. When I got to college, I was familiar with the culture and environment due to the preparation I had in high school.

Although we are treated like Kindergarteners, this school provides a lot of support. All the teachers support you and your goals. Even if you're goals are not realistic they will make them realistic. Also, the classes are not that hard and plenty of Office hours are provided. Failing here makes you look like the idiot because you are giving plenty of opportunities to make it better.
Coming to peoples prep helped me in a positive way because it helped me become a better person as well as artist. This school has gradually helped my way of thinking as well as fix my character into something more reliable and dependable into situations that could prevent my success to go to college in the future. Even so there are things peoples prep needs help fixing and that´s the rules that´s set against students who are fighting or who got jumped if they fix that then this would be a perfect option for families to pick for their children.
