Arbor Preparatory High School Reviews

The academic preparation for college is almost second to none. I just graduated, and my college classes seem easier than my high school classes! However; I can only give this school three stars, because the dress code is very strict and there is no swim/football team. Also; the school is very small, so if something embarrassing happens to your child, almost every student in the school will hear about the event. (There are about 300-400 students enrolled in the school and there are only two hallways).

My experience at Arbor Preparatory High School has been tremendous and rewarding. Although Arbor Prep is often criticized for its small population and small building "for a high school", it offered a great diversity of students as well as a higher level of education. Looking back, I am extremely thankful that I have attended this small, but easy to navigate high school that offers college courses in which I took part in. It has greatly benefited me and made my life easier during my first two years in college. Aside from the academic part of Arbor Prep, they also offer a variety of sports in which I also took part in. Playing sport at Arbor Prep has taught me patience, hard work, and team work. Overall, Arbor Prep has been great and deserves a 4 star. It could get a 5 star if they just give quality foods and not cold hot dogs or cold hard pizzas.
Going into my senior year at Arbor Prep, I already know that I will be prepared for college. With the help of some highly compassionate teachers and a staff that's always looking for what's best for you, you will always be pushed to show your highest potential. If I could change one thing about Arbor Prep it would be more consistency in the teachers because some teachers will only stay for a year and then leave. The teachers that have been at the school for a while tend to be the better teachers overall.
