My child enjoyed the association with like minded focused scholars. But DID NOT enjoy sacrificing life outside of school due to the 6+ hours of homework every night. The homework is unnecessary; often times having multiple assignments covering the same material. I wish the school didn't equate amount of homework with "great school". I'd like to raise a well rounded child with outside interests: family, volunteering, friends, talents.
There are few opportunities to diversify - lack of electives and school activities. A dance 2 or 3 times a year doesn't seem right for a high school.
The administration puts on a front that they care about what the parents and students think. But they get to hide behind the students high test scores as false confirmation that they are doing what's right.
My son gets personalized attention and an outstanding education. Not only is ACP preparing him for college, I know that he is much more likely to earn scholarships and attend the university of his choice because of the well-rounded education he is receiving at Arizona College Preparatory-Erie. Thank you to Chandler Unified School District for offering a college prep education in the public school system.
I'm confident in a brighter future for my self. "College Prep" is the appropriate name for this school and I can't wait until the day I see all my hard work pay off. Hard work doesn't stop after high school is over, it's for life; therefore I'm glad to be challenged at this age.
