    As a recent alum of Flintridge Prep, I can attest to the benefits it’s left me with. I am currently attending my #1 college (thanks to college counseling) and Flintridge focused on finding all of my classmates a college that fit us and wasn’t necessarily based on rank. I love Prep because of their spanish program that took me to Nicaragua and spurred my interest in public health (which is now my major). The teachers truly love their students and their jobs which is why this school is particularly unique. They want you to succeed and they push you to put in the hard work so that you truly are prepared for college. My freshman year began with a smooth transition and I feel capable in taking on my course work as a double major with a minor. Prep left me able to study independently, be professional, speak in public, thrive as an individual, and how to write a good email to my professors (a rare skill I’ve been told). I love this school, I really truly do, and I was there for 6 years!

    Flintridge Prep is an elite school with the top teachers in California. Every class is informative, fun, and unique, and the teachers genuinely love to teach. However, as a result of their highly paid teachers, Prep falls behind many other institutions in terms of facilities. Fortunately, the school is working to correct this with massive construction projects, such as the newly completed Atrium and upcoming Collaboration Building. Prep has also succeeded at establishing itself as one of the top schools in the country, while avoiding the cut-throat academic climate of other schools. Prep students love to learn and are extremely intelligent, but don't fixate on GPAs or stress over test scores. Everyone at Prep is there for a reason, so everyone works to create a truly amazing high school experience.
    This school has changed my life. My classmates are all kind, articulate and hard-working. We have been academically challenged for the last 4-6 years, and there were many hours of hard work and quite a few sleepless nights, but it is quickly becoming clear that Prep has left us more than prepared for academic and professional success after high school. The administration is very personal and responsive, and the faculty bend over backwards to help us. The food and grounds on campus are incredible, and the athletics programs- despite the size of our school- produce driven and inspiring competitors. The college counselors are dedicated to making sure you end up in the place best suits your aspirations. As an academically focused kid who has found time to play three varsity sports and develop an affinity for performing arts over the last four years, I would recommend this school to anyone who is intellectual, passionate, and (most importantly) well-rounded.
