    "I have been attending Tempe Preparatory Academy since I enrolled in sixth grade. The whole system proved to be a very different experience than what I had known prior to my Tempe Prep education. With much smaller class sizes and a much more intertwined school through all the grade levels, Tempe Preparatory Academy allowed me to feel more confident in breaking out of my comfort zone, both in the classroom setting as well with the other students. While the modest resources and campus size are not much to brag about, the school makes up for it in their effective curriculum style, experienced teachers, and a great overall experience. Throughout the six years that I have attended this school, I have been challenged and prepared for a life past high school in a way that many other high schools do no have the ability to succeed in."

    "Tempe Preparatory Academy is an extremely rigorous prep school located in Tempe Arizona. While Tempe Prep has been a fantastic learning opportunity, every school has its positives and its negatives. Tempe Prep prepares its students extremely well for college due to its intense curriculum and study requirements. On the other hand, however, Tempe prep lacks a few of the things that would be necessary for a more full and enriching education. Due to its poor funding, Tempe Prep does not have the resources that other schools have in regards to technology and electronics. In an increasingly technology-centered world, this is potentially a handicap for those who have not had necessary experience with the technology that they may need to utilize later in life."

    "Tempe Preparatory Academy is overall an incredible school. I realize that at such a young age, I know more than some of the adults I have met. We have read Atlas Shrugged, philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle. The list goes on and on. When I first started, I noticed the community was smaller than other schools. This made the school, overall, a great place for me to thrive and a safe comminuty for everyone to freely discuss matters. The school does lack resources and some facilities. The more students mean more money from the state. In our case, we have maybe 350 kids total at my school. I wish we could have our own gym to practice in rather then driving a few miles to get to a facility we rent. I wish we could afford to pay the teachers more because they are the reason we all thrive! My school is incredible, but the only thing we need to work on is having the right amount of money to keep the school up and running."
