My experience at Steinmetz College Prep is a roller coaster, exciting with a lot of ups and downs. Like every high school you get memorable moments, the shows that they provide for atheltes and other fun stuff! One thing I found over the top at Steinmetz is senior year, we have trips to universities and colleges, to feel the vibe of the school’s and to seek more information from! One thing I would love to see a change of is the uniform policy. I would like to see a change of is the dean's employees, simply for their system and how it works!

I liked how close you can get to a lot of people. At first I didn't know what I was getting into, but as soon as I got used to everything I got comfortable. You can get into very many things at the start of your school year that will lead to tremendous outcomes. As time passes the school only improves which gets me extremely happy for them!
5 stars without a doubt! Not including personal experiences, I think Steinmetz has one of the best programs offered for students that will prepare them for college as the IB program allowed me to develop and improve many critical skills used for college and in life. Students should apply for Steinmetz under the IB program as it will benefit them in so many ways.
