    Overall Experience: So far my experience at Caprock has been amazing. The teachers try and get involved with you on a one to one basis. The clubs and organizations here are not only backed by the students but by the whole staff. The only thing that might need help is some of the students cause a few problems and sometimes it seems like they are not punished correctly.

    Overall Experience: I like how they have the No excuses University and how the teachers make sure you don't make up any excuses. They make sure you get it done without excuses.
