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.

Parent: Teachers always make sure the kids are taken care of. They are a hard-working bunch. The things my child tells me about does not happen by itself. Those teachers really care.

BASIS Independent Silicon Valley
- Private School
- San Jose, CA
Middle School Student: Basis's curriculum is outstanding compared to other public and private schools alike. It includes all 3 sciences, Biology, Physics, and Chemistry, with excellent teachers teaching these subjects. My experience here has been amazing with my friends, but quite boring without. Things I would change about Basis Independent Silicon Valley would be to add more sport clubs or sport teams. So far, we only have a volleyball girls team, basketball boys team, and basketball girls team. Also, they need a bigger school ground if your the type of person who likes to play wall ball, football, soccer, etc. The school also needs to improve its diversity among people, because the school is about 95 percent asian. Overall, Basis is all about STEM and barely any competitive sports making this school quite unique.
