I really enjoyed being at Scottsdale prep. I think that it was / is definitely hard and challenging but that it prepares its students for the real world. I’ve made some amazing memories and had a lot of different experiences. I’ve struggled with learning disabilities and they really helped me. All the teachers are amazing and super understanding and helpful. I also struggle with a physical illness. They did a lot to accommodate me. I like how the school is small enough that I know almost all teachers by name, i also know everyone in my grade very well. I am overall just very grateful for the experiences i have had at prep and I’m excited to make a few last memories this year.

Most teachers are amazing and supportive. There are no available elective choices so you are forced to take choir, which is an extremely hard and stressful class especially if you can not sing. It is a fine school if you enjoy smaller class sizes, which allows you to connect with your teachers more to reach out if you need any help or if you are struggling. There is a lot of homework which can be exceedingly stressful for some people and makes it hard if you participate in sports or other activities outside of school.
I have been attending Scottsdale Prep since 6th grade and will be graduating this upcoming spring (2020). The faculty and teachers are all very invested in seeing that the students succeed whether it be in academics, clubs, athletics, etc. I have had the amazing opportunity through Scottsdale Prep to take Latin and Greek throughout my four years and that is not something that every school offers. This school has pushed me to challenge myself in every aspect of my involvement, which has been a very awarding experience.
