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
As a current student at Flintridge Preparatory, I would call the atmosphere welcoming and safe. I enjoy coming to school everyday to learn, and the teachers motivate me to try my best. Graduating next year, I am excited to enter the world of college, mainly because Prep has prepared me so well academically and mentally. I would say the only drawback to Flintridge are the sports programs, but they aren't as "bad" as people call them. We have a 3 year CIF XC team and our baseball team won CIF 2 years ago and made it to the finals last year. At Prep, the main focus is on academics, but that doesn't mean we don't have fantastic athletes, actors, artists, etc.
Creme de la creme! Teachers are top-notch. The teachers genuinely care about the success of their students and are very involved in the students' lives. Prep teachers are intelligent and well-spoken, being wonderful role models for the students. They are knowledgeable and passionate about the subjects they teach and in return, the students too get excited about learning.
