Reagan College Preparatory High School Reviews

I am extremely grateful for my experience at Reagan. It is named college prep for a reason! The IB curriculum is rigorous. In fact it is said, senior year in IB is harder than freshman year of college. However, there is racism among some students and some staff. Reagan is a very diverse school, but the Full Diploma Program is dominated by white students. This might be because the fact minorities are held at a lower standard by some staff. Most teachers are passionate about their subject, which is a great quality to have. However, most of them only care about grades, test scores and their students as just a statistic to maintain Reagan's reputation as one of the best High Schools in Wisconsin. Most don't care about students as a person. However, the few teachers you do find that actually do care about their students, are amazing. As a community, Reagan needs unity and needs to break the racial barriers that clearly divide the students and staff.

My experience at Reagan has been great. I have been challenged through the International Baccalaureate program to push myself to be the best student I can and to work hard to achieve my goals. I feel like I am prepared for the rigors of college and tested high enough that I do not have to take some of the freshman level college courses! The IB theatre and music programs have made me a well rounded person and have helped me grow in my abilities to feel comfortable with public speaking and performing in front of large groups. I know that being a member of the Reagan and IB communities has prepared me to succeed in college and beyond.
Reagan is not perfect, (no school is really) but I can say in general that it is a good school. For MPS students who came from schools where homework was a sheet of paper you completed in less than 10 mins back in middle school, brace yourselves, as freshman year at Reagan will change you A LOT. However, a 4.0 is NOT impossible. The school community is huge, and there are a million different things you can do after school. As a senior, I can definitely say that Reagan prepares you for college-- if you are up for it. I mean, the school is not perfect, given that there is an extreme pro-Full Diploma culture, however you do not necessary have to be Full Diploma in order to go to college. However Reagan students who get accepted to prestigious universities are almost always Full Diploma.The school is a great school mainly because of its curriculum. Students are the ones who choose their pathways, and the responsibilities that come with it. Think about that as you apply.
