    Fairfield Prep is an incredible school that will prepare you for the real world. The curriculum at Fairfield Prep is very rigorous and in order to succeed here, you will need to work very hard. There are many opportunities for our young men to get involved at this school such as drama, sports, and many clubs. Succeeding here will allow you to apply to the most rigorous universities around the country. There are many great teachers here as well, but not all! Be prepared to deal with some unreasonable teachers. If you work hard, you are set. Some small cons are the lack of courses that are found in other schools such as AP economics and AP psychology. However, you will find many opportunities to challenge yourself here through AP and honors classes. If you are an 8th grader at the moment of reading this, I hope you will consider Fairfield Prep.

    The brotherhood at Fairfield Prep is the best part of the school. Most of the teachers are really good and their mission is forming young men of intellectual competence, who possess the conscience to make wise decisions, a compassion for others, and a commitment to justice in our global society. Sports play a huge part of the Prep experience for most students and there are many to choose from. Fairfield Prep hosts championship-winning athletic teams, but also encourages students of all athletic abilities to strive for our own personal goals.
    I went to Prep as an international student, and I still go back to visit my teachers and those I love. My first year there was especially difficult because of the initial period of adjustments after arriving in the United States; however, my teachers and classmates gave me a tremendous amount of help. The rest of my high school career became more and more exciting. Upon graduation, I couldn't believe what I had achieved in the past four years. Thanks to Prep, I was ready to go and thrive in a top-tier university. I think Prep certainly needs improvements in certain areas, but overall it lives up to its great reputation. Best luck in the future!!!
