Phoenix College Preparatory Academy Reviews
This school is fun to be at but also does not have much money, sport programs are poor in the sense of affording uniforms and such, most teachers are nice and teach well, more teachers are being brought into the school. This school is so well at preparing for college that it is growing very fast and the school is trying to the adjust to the growth, resulting in unorganization for some class periods. This school pays for college classes! I've already taken 4 college classes free. Very college-prep and test prep. There are free classes for improving SAT and ACT scores. Overall, the college prep is very good but I still rate the school 4 stars for its unorganization.
Phoenix College Preparatory Academy is a 9-12 grade school that gives the students the opportunity to obtain a high school diploma along with at least one year of college credits. It's a small school and the college is basically all they got going for them to attract students to come. There is a few clubs (anime, food, student government) and a couple of sports (girls volleyball, co-ed soccer and girls/boys basketball). The number of staff members is few and there should probably be more. If a person wants the high school experience, then they should probably go to a different high school. As I said before, the school gives students college access and that is really it. In my opinion, the school doesn't take advantage of the resources that it has. It doesn't have a strong, appealing foundation.
I'm a senior and will be graduating not only high school, but also with an associates degree. It's hard work, but the staff from this school really pushed us students (in a good way) to be prepared for college and success. They are there when we need the help and the students are close with the staff. The staff really makes you feel like you can achieve anything and pushes you to do your best. In this school, I took college classes while I was taking high school classes. That's why I'm able to graduate with a degree. It really helps when the school is the one paying for your classes and class materials for college. They're not joking when they say it's hard work in this school, but in the end it's worth it.
