    . My son had to be home schooled because he was falling behind in public school. Now that he is in Traverse City College Preparatory Academy he has found his niche and has excelled both academically and personally. The teachers put in the extra effort to make the students want to put in their best efforts. Because of the required homework he has had to learn better study techniques and the wise use of a computer. He also now has an appreciation that learning is hard work but there are rewards such as knowledge and better self esteem. The principal is new and the parents are still not sure what their role is in the scheme in on going improvements in the school.

    Traverse City College Prep is better than ever for the 2010-11 school year. A new school leader and wonderful teachers have helped my son feel confortable and he is learning so well in this enviorment. I love it also because i can be involved with the school.

    I think the teachers are wonderful and have helped my student thrive this year. The drawback is in how this school is managed. The is a lot of lack of communication and parent involvment is NOT encouraged. I think there is great potential at this school but am not sure I want to entrust my students future to the confused unorganized state exsisting in this school right now. It makes me very sad...because I really like the idea of a smaller school enviroment for my child.

    This school seems to be going downhill (2009-10 yr) . There was a prospect of it closing as enrollment dropped this year by over 20 students as of the mid year mark. Inconsistency with parent contact chaos for parent teacher conferences etc. has escalated. We have decided to remove our 9th grader and place him in anther school due to the lack of follow-through on what was initially promised; "great student-teacher relationships excellent parent-teacher communication" -not happening. My child was failing three classes and I was never notified outside of the mid-term reports. TCAPS did a better job handling this and they have far more students. We stared the year with over 80 students and are ending in the 60's. This speaks volumes with the quality of education received. Most parents are not impressed. I don't know what changed from years past but it's definitely moving in the wrong direction. Beware.

    I am a second year student I'm in 10th grade now. I love this school with all my heart and even though its having trouble right now I want it to stick through. The teachers have helped me understand 10th grade studies better than I did 8th grade. It's wonderful and I recommend it greatly. Especially if your open to new things!
