Going to ACP was the best choice I ever could have made. I've been here for three years. At my previous school, I had had a horrible experience, particularly because for years I had suffered in the same classroom with really mean girls who cared about only themselves and not the other kids' feelings. At ACP, I found that even the popular kids were genuinely nice and tried to include everybody. Also, uniforms can really took off the pressure of being a teenager. Academically, because Spanish is required and all students are on the honors course even in math, these students are completely ready to compete against other kids. There may be a few teachers who aren't the best, but that's true in any school. The majority really care and can connect to kids, too. While there is homework, teachers and other students are always willing to help. If you know how to manage your time well it isn't a problem, even after factoring in outside sports, instruments, family time, lessons, etc. Finally, if sports is a big issue, it still is very possible to win games because ACP does not compete with the other big high schools (Hamilton, Chandler, Basha, Perry), but with schools of the same size.
