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).

At Arbor Preparatory High teachers do there very best to equip students on what to expect when you go off to college. They don't settle and they push students to achieve there academic goals. School culture is okay, its better to get involved in extracurricular activities. Sports team are good. I enjoyed my four years at this High school. Very Structured.
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.
