Don Bosco Preparatory High School Reviews

Really depends on the classes you are in; regular classes (College Prep) for the most part doesn't really push you to succeed. I have had a few exceptions to that statement but again, for the most part, they are average classes. The honors and AP classes are the classes that really push you. I really enjoyed the Honors classes I was in and the teachers really drew the classes' attention in. This school I would say is a sports school, the majority of students participate in some sort of sport. Your sports team is really your main friend group and if you don't participate in a sport, it can be difficult to find a group. Overall, I would have chosen a different school if I had the opportunity to do high school over but it was adequate enough to get me through high school.

Good school, one of the best private high schools in the area. Only issue that is prevalent is the diversity. Most teachers/students are primarily Caucasian. Though typical high school antics go on at Bosco it is safe to say that for the most part, students and teachers are focused on their work. There are quite a bit of wealthy people at this institution but it never seemed to be an issue. Best part about the school is that all of the teachers care about making us, the students, more prepared for college and life in general
The best educational experience the school offers is in the Honors and AP classes. Otherwise, several of the CP teachers are sub-par and the students alike are not motivated. I would like to see CP teachers that teach to challenge and motivate their students and not just allow them to participate and graduate.
