Boston Preparatory Charter Public School Reviews

I am in my 11th year teaching and my 4th year teaching full-time at Boston Prep. I have found Boston Prep to be an exceptional place to work. Leadership is innovative, compassionate, and hard-working. Staff is dedicated to helping students above all and work tirelessly to do so. The building is beautiful. Best of all, the students are creative, bright, and many of very high-achieving. This is not to say that the work is easy because it definitely is not. Closing the achievement gap is, indeed, very challenging work but I cannot say enough good things about how hard everyone at Boston Prep is trying to do that. No work place is perfect but every single day, I am grateful to work at Boston Prep, including now, when we are remote-teaching and learning. In fact, the COVID-19 crisis has exemplified the innovation, compassion, and dedication of Boston Prep's teachers, students, and leadership.

Boston prep has gone down hill. It is not the same as the past 3-4 years. It has turned into a stereotypical inner city school, where there are fights every other week. It had gotten to the point where parents attack the students and most of the faculty had just watched this student get beat up. The student culture had been driven into the ground by a militaristic style of schooling where academics are beaten into the students head to the point where many have dropped out , left the school or developed depression. The threshold of an 85 gpa was embedded into students mind, that is being used as a weapon where students who can not excel at this level but put in good effort are deemed insignificant. Community meeting was a joyful symbol of uniformity however this year it is viewed as a joke and a waste of students time due to the Sargent like staff and lack of student expression.Students at this school at very bright and deserve a better environment
Boston Prep is a public charter school that is devoted to a mission of college success and lifelong ethical growth for its students. Its faculty members believe deeply in the mission, and work very hard to ensure that their students will have good opportunities in life.
