Okay. Well, I’m really not sure where to start. Yes, I am a student. No, I am not a student who is leaving a bad review just to mess with school or something stupid like that. I just recently left EduPrize. I have been there for 11 years in total and I started in Kindergarten, so I like to think that I know the school pretty well. The kids there are good students and are kind for the most part. The teachers are great educators, there have been bad teachers, though. But, hey, that’s expected, things like that happen.
Overall, if you’re strictly into education and preparing your child for college, I suppose this is the school for you. But be warned, this school can and will be very sneaky if it’s for their benefit. Dr. Lynn Robershotte is not any sort of “Leader of the Year”... she’s far from that. Every single time we have a school assembly or something of that manor, she uses the same exact speech of how she started this school with a small dream... or something. She does know what she’s doing, though, for both good and bad. She got us to be an A+ school, so I guess that’s a good thing. But, she was recently caught misusing tax credit donations. Instead of having people choose where they would go, the school took them and used them for whatever they wanted. You tried, Lynn, you tried.
I’m an all honors student, on the Distinguished Honor Roll, I get good grades (generally A’s and B’s), and I was even nominated for the NHS. So, I’m sure you can imagine my surprise when I was told that my first year of Spanish did not count. I took 2 years of Spanish, one in the 9th grade and one in the 10th. My 9th grade year didn’t count as a class but as an elective, I was not told this until recently. So here I am, it’s summer break, and I’m doing 3 or more hours a day of summer school for a class that I have already passed. This is looking like it will take up my entire break and I will not be able to do much but school work for these next few months.
Needless to say, I am very, very frustrated… And sadly, this is all EduPrize’s doing. They don’t know how to run a high school, and now all of my classmates and I are paying for it. Please, if you are thinking of sending your child to this school, take my words into consideration.
