G-Prep is an outstanding school! This school is located in Spokane, Washington and is a private Jesuit, Catholic school. This school has helped me through so much, whether it was spiritually or academically, the staff and employees do everything they can to help their students achieve their goals. This private school has encouraged me to be a person for others and to do everything for the greater glory of God.

I liked the inclusiveness and how the faculty seemed to be more in tune with their students and their learning experience. We also have wonderful athletics and extracurricular activities that comes along with our private school schedule that can be very enjoyable, peaceful and offer a student an opportunity to grow. It prepares you with one of the best jumpstarts there is to offer before college and beyond and overall I wouldn't change a thing. Every organization has its pros and cons, but I would attend if money isn't an issue and after you have taken the tour. Use caution and don't be afraid to transfer if you don't find yourself fitting in that well. On the other hand, even if you do struggle, Gonzaga Prep may be in need of your voice and your talents and insight.
Your experience at Prep, whether good or bad, seems to depend largely on two things probably endemic to every school but exacerbated by how small this school is. To wit: your social standing and academic performance will probably largely define the quality of your high school experience. Prep is a small school with no more than 900 students, and as a consequence has facilitated the formation of small, insular social groups between which there is little interaction.The first group you're in, you're in for the rest of high school, whether it's the cheerleaders or the Dungeons-and-Dragons Club. The other is that the quality of teacher varies wildly, with the best being concentrated at the Honors and AP levels. Basically, if you're planning on taking the tough courses, this might be a school for you, but if you're here for the sports or social life, you might want to consider going somewhere where the tuition isn't $12,000 per annum.
