Flintridge Preparatory School Reviews

I am an alumni of Flintridge Prep, and I absolutely loved the experience! The community is wonderful- teachers are passionate about their respective fields and will definitely go out of their way to help their students. The students are all very supportive of one another, and despite the academic intensity of the school being pretty high, you never really feel like you're ever competing with anyone.

One thing to keep in mind is that Flintridge Prep is mostly about academics. Students do have other non-academic interests such as sports or performing arts, and Prep certainly has extracurricular programs to meet these interests. However, if you are pretty proficient in an extracurricular activity and/or want to pursue it in college, you are better off looking outside of Prep for proper training in your field of interest.
Review Flintridge Preparatory School
I graduated from Flintridge Prep over ten years ago, but I reflect on my experiences there frequently and attribute much of my current happiness and success to the positive environment the school provided me during my formative years. The teachers are incredible and care deeply for the students; many are still some of my greatest mentors in life. The students are highly motivated but are far more cooperative than competitive. The opportunities we were offered were numerous. I loved my 7th-12th experience at the time, and my opinion has only grown even more positive through the years.
Flintridge Prep has been a wonderful place to go to high school. I have had few bad teachers, and the curriculum is designed to be challenging but still allows for a degree of creativity. The campus is beautiful and very well maintained, the food is top-notch, and the school clearly puts a lot of effort into making the students feel comfortable. Deans and administration are accommodating, understanding, and invested in making the student experience the best it can be. Teachers are equally as friendly and open to accommodating students' needs. Overall, I have had a great experience at the school.
