My son has had nothing but wonderful experiences at Don Bosco Prep. There really is a brotherhood that he was welcomed into immediately. The teachers are engaging, caring and fun, and the ministry, sports and clubs all offer rewarding experiences for students. The campus is gorgeous and give the boys a feel for what it will be like to be on a college campus. Bosco is granting my son the opportunity to make friends with a diverse group of boys who come from many different towns in the surrounding areas. In addition to the lifelong friends he is making, Bosco provides a top-tier education that is undoubtedly one of the best in the state. Most students have an outstanding relationship with their teachers and the guidance staff. It truly exemplifies what a 'college prep' high school should be. The sense of Ironman pride the boys feel while is something any one watching from a distance (or the inside) can see. I can honestly say that this school is truly special.

DBP provides an excellent academic, social, athletic and moral environment. There are many programs that focus on community service and helping others. Compared to many schools in the area, the DBP student body is more diverse economically and racially. The teachers are caring and always there for the students. The layout of the campus provides a college-like atmosphere. Most importantly, there is a camaraderie among the students that is unmatched in other neighboring schools. Notwithstanding the differences in personalities or abilities, the boys view their classmates as their brothers...as family. The students leave DBP very prepared for college life.
Don Bosco Prep is one of the top preparatory college campus all boys high schools in the entire state of New Jersey. I would recommend this school to everyone. They help to prepare you in order to get accepted to top colleges and they help your son to mature into a well-mannered mannered gentleman. They also offer a wide variety of excellent sports and extracurricular activities on top of the high standard academics. The administration and the staff are so welcoming and kind, and the friendships that you make here are long lasting like a tightly knit community. Security is very good here and nothing bad will happen. Send your kids to Bosco if you want one of the best high schools for a total for 4 years. You will not regret it.
