Northridge Preparatory School Reviews

My brother is an international student and has attended Northridge for one year. He will be a junior next year. It has been a great year for him, because he has been challenged. Though he cannot play sports, he joined chess club, math team, and plays violin in Northridge Strings. Most of full-time international students are from China. However, they have exchange students from Mexico and Spain and that's a fun experience for all students.
Teachers have been supportive and excellent in teaching. You can just tell that they enjoy teaching and they care! It's a good place for boys to grow and build characters.
The facility of the school is a bit on the small side, but they make it up by the quality of faculty and students. It's a pretty diverse student pool, much better than others that we have visited in North and West Suburbs.

Every teacher is more than qualified to teach in their respective fields. Each class provides its own unique challenges, but huge opportunities for personal and academic growth. Teachers will address any problem a student may have to ensure their success. Classes instill valuable skills that are necessary for college classes and provide enough opportunities through the required AP courses to further a student's preparedness. Outside of classes, there are plenty of opportunities for self discovery through the many clubs and activities. When a certain activity may not be available, the administration is happy to try and work out an alternative or even start something new. Northridge Prep's size plays to its advantage in that each student receives personal attention, succeeds in extracurriculars, and forms meaningful relationships in ways that may not otherwise have happened at larger institutions.
Northridge fosters learning, brotherhood, faith, and family values. Through its small school mentality, it is allowed to reach each student as an individual instead of just a number. The level of academics is astronomically higher than its competition as each student is required to take all honors and college level classes. The atmosphere is undoubtably unique and irreplaceable. I will for sure miss it and consider myself incredibly lucky to have been given the opportunity to excel along side such great men of character and honor.
