Preparatory Charter School of Mathematics, Science, Tech & Careers Reviews

Prep Charter was a very helpful school. They have a program called career development starting your freshman year of high school. I think this program was the most helpful for me because it opens your mind to what the work force is like whether you are working in a school, in an office setting, or at the hospital. The teachers and faculty really care about you and your preparation for college. Student body is very diverse but not exposed to many different cultures. There are many club for a student to join, and if there's not a club that you see but are interested in, you can create one. The food isn't so great as a vegan there are not many options, but many other students think that the food is great. Academics are very good and a student can learn a lot in the 90 minute block period. Uniform rules are pretty strict considering that it is a charter/public high school.

I been attending this school since i was freshman and now that I am a senior, I can say that I am prepared for college. this school makes you apply to 4 year college , when your a senior (its a requirement to graduate) . In the school mainly all of teachers are white and 2-3 black teacher . This school akao has a esl for non-english students that come in from different countries and the also have a learning support program, that is also useful for some of the kids there.There are a almost never any fights that take place in the school and security is every up to date with metal detectors and bag scans machine in the school , when you walk in to the school.
I like the structure of the school day. I like how we have four classes a day and the career development program. I think the career development program is a great way to prepare us for the future. However, I think the career development sites should be based off of what career we want in the future.
