Flintridge Preparatory School Reviews

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!

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.
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.
