Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School
- Private School
- San Luis Obispo, CA
Sophomore: MCP is certainly an elite school. Here, we are pushed by our teachers to do well and to improve constantly. Our cafe food is a tad expensive, but then again, so is the school's tuition itself. However, both are worth the money, as the education we students receive (if we apply ourselves, if not there's no point in attending a private school as it would then be a waste of time and money) is top-notch. My only problem with academics is that there are less AP classes than at public schools, but our college prep courses are still harder than theirs.
Many of my peers dislike the religious aspect of our school, but it is a Catholic school and is to be expected. Nonetheless, teachers are accepting of non-catholic students and only ask that they be respectful during Mass et cetera.
I love MCP. Our faculty and staff are wonderful and they really do get to know us because it's such a small school.
