Student, Brooks College Preparatory Academy High School, Class of 2016,
The type of students who should not attend Brooks College Preparatory Academy are those who search for short-cuts through every hardship in life. These are the students who often procrastinate, the students who don't study and who barely turn in their practice work. Unfortunately, not everyone at Gwendolyn Brooks has a strong commitment and mental endurance. These are the students who will give half their effort on projects and quizzes because they know they'll have a chance to better the grade soon after. If you are to attend Brooks you will have to stay dedicated 100%, the minute you slack off you immediately fall behind, some students find it easier to just give half effort and deal with the catch-up work continuously. This is bad work ethic and is against the ultimate goal of Gwendolyn Brooks, to mentally prepare you for not only college, but for the real world.
