    The staff at Nazereth Prep have truly become our extended family! For the last 4 years they have been there for not only my son but the whole family. When my son developed anxiety about riding the bus and started missing school, they came up with a plan so he could still learn.They made a plan using technology so he could continue learning. When we could not drink the water from our taps due to excessive chemicals, they went to Costco, they delivered cases of water to any family who needed it. Due to them, my son has gained confidence and a direction for life after high school. When I was sick and in the hospital, I received a get well card, teachers and other staff asking my son how I was feeling and sending their best wishes! I totally recommend Nazereth Prep to any family who wishes to see their child grow and become confident in who they are and what they can accomplish with hard work and critical problem solving skills!

    The students have a unique and adventurous way of learning and experiencing new adventures in academics. Also a school with unlimited resources not only in the educational field but also in the corporate world were are students learn to work deligently and with opportunity to explore new journeys and build networks . Naz Prep is a school who is proud of her wonderful history and mission that was founded by The Sisters of The Holy Family of Nazareth and who has been doing God’s work in the Pgh area for close to 120years. A school that is safe, alive with new technologies, teachers who love what they do and the students they teach, administration and board members that work to make Naz Prep the best high school not only in Pgh but the world. And most of all a place that is inviting and who is welcoming to all who come the opportunity to know and feel God, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit in all she does! I believe if God ever took a vacation ... it would be at Naz Prep!
    Being here for my entire high school run, watching this school grow in their ability to ensure students can achieve academic success, being here through various and frequent changes in how the school is routinely ran (for better or worse), and seeing this school's network, outreach and opportunities for attending and even non-attending students expand at a staggering rate are but a fraction of some of the great things I was able to experience here at Nazareth Prep (previously HFA). This is a rather new school, having only been running for 5 years at the time of me writing this review. This reason and a few others out of the administration's control, is the reason you can come to expect a rather shifty and sometimes wonky day by day experience here. However, as time went on I noticed hard work being put in to ensure everything is consistent and quality in regards to a student's weekly schedule, curriculum, and comfort. I'd wish to write more but this blasted site won't let me. A-
