It's not that bad. I went to a college prep school. Just keep on top of the work.

hmm college prep school. never been to one. but hey, it will prepare u for college so that will be less overwhelming. think positive
~God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. psalm 46:1-2

~God created people in his own image; God patterned them after himself Genesis 1:27

~Stop judging others, and u will not be judged. Stop criticizing others, or it will all come back on u. Luke 6:37

~There are "friends" who destroy eachother but a real freind sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24

~A fool is quick tempered but a wise person stays calm when insulted. Proverbs 12:16

~The tounge is a small thing but what enormous damage it can do. James 3:5

~Even if my father and mother abandon me the Lord will hold me close. Psalm 27:10

~Get rid of all bitterness...instead be kind to eachother Ephesians 4:31-32

God bless

yes,, but not really,, high school teaches you the basic stuff you need to know to live your life,,, a collage prep school teaches you that,, and also gets you ready for collage,, so you are not soo overwhelmed!

JAC, not sure what country you are from, but I know in Germany a college prep school would be similar to Gymnasium, where as normal high school would be like Realschule or Hochschule. In France there are also similarities, but I forget the names for the proper schools. Does that help?

i don't think going to a prep school really helps u. if u're disiplined enough in high school college won't be a problem. my sister didn't go to prep school and she's doing fine in college.

Well, yes and no I think. Prep schools offer a lot more opportunities for AP courses and things like that, and that prepares you very well for college. They also tend to have a more personal college counseling system, which is better to pick your college. They are also more involved in the college application process. By my junior year I was already in 2 AP's and the rest of my courses were honors. My senior year I was in 4 AP's and 2 honors with a free period.

I personally think you're lucky! I need to go to a school with opportunities for higher learning but I can't because of my old friend money and my stupid father. I had a chance to go to CRMS which isn't a college prep, but is much better than regular high school and my father said I couldn't go even if I had a full scholarship! He's holding me back! You should be happy that you're parents realize that you're gifted and are willing to give you what you need. :)
