I have attended Wonderful College Prep Academy my entire high school experience. Previously, I was worryed about high school since I came from such a small school before, but I felt great here. The staff is encouraging and helpful and the students are great and easy to get along with. The teachers challenge me when I need it, and help me when I ask for it. There are choices for extra curriculars and sports that make it all the more worth while!

At Wonderful College Prep Academy, I feel at home. The rigorous college classes in the Agriculture Prep program are extremely helpful in getting a real experience of what college feels like. Our campus is so beautifully designed and made. We have freshly-made food at our cafeteria with recipes created by our chefs. The only thing I would change about my school is that administration should communicate more to us, and the school should give us more breaks and incentives.
I loved the high school, whether it was providing an early college education, or the unity and embodiment of a college campus experience as well as a highschool life. This school was overall the best choice for me because they helped me through the process and provided the neccessary needs that a student could ever need or wish for. Bullying was not a thing or unhealthy choices of food. Even the classes were engaging.
