Gonzaga Preparatory School Reviews

Although I performed poorly academically at the school, G-Prep was the first place where I felt accepted. Moreover, even though I wasn’t using good study skills, I absorbed enough of them to know what I needed to do at the next level, and I made the honor roll over half the time at the University of Washington. The BIG intangible is the G-Prep community. You feel that you are part of a large extended family, which I did not appreciate until after I left. People from custodians to secretaries to teachers to the principal genuinely care about the students. I sent both my sons there and felt it was worth every penny. Speaking of which, G-Prep has Fair Share, a tuition program that allows families to pay different rates dependent on income and also ensures economic diversity.
G-Prep may not have the fanciest facilities like the public schools, but the education is great.

I enjoy being a student here at G-Prep. The teachers truly care about the student development. There are many opportunities for students to further prepare for life beyond high school, not only by counselor/teacher help, but with student interactions and classes/clubs offered. Everyone here is like one big family, and the level of support is phenomenal. I feel more prepared coming here than opposed to other schools in the area. I also really like the unique retreats we get to attend every year, which creates the chance to become closer to our classmates.
Gonzaga Prep has a great community of caring teachers, students, and staff. The education is also very good. It is flexible in that everyone can get into the class that is the right level for them. Since it is a Jesuit school, there is an (optional) mass every Thursday, and required religious courses. This may not be everyone's cup of tea. However, despite being a Catholic school, Prep is relatively liberal and accepting of everyone. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good education.
