Oratory Preparatory School Reviews

Oratory is an excellent school in many aspects. The academics are challenging but are manageable because of the schedule that Oratory recently started to use. The teachers are great and are very open to helping students with their work, even outside of school hours. The students are great as well and I have not heard a single problem through the whole school year. My son has made some great friends including several upperclassmen. There are numerous clubs and extracurricular activities that are available and there is nothing the school lacks. Although the sports may not be the best, it is clear that the school is striving to strengthen the programs. An amazing new building just opened up this year which includes a fitness center, basketball gym, cafeteria, classrooms, and offices, and it is absolutely beautiful. Overall, I am very happy that I have sent my son to Oratory and I look forward to the future for him and the school.
Review Oratory Preparatory School
Oratory Prep is a very good school with high academic standards, enough clubs and athletic teams and good facilities, especially with the completion of the new building. The school works hard to prepare the students for college and has a 100% graduation rate. If there is one shortcoming with Oratory, it would be the college guidance students receive. I think it should begin sooner than it does, and I think it should prepare the students better for the type of school they can actually get into.
There are so many options, ranging from Photography Club to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Club! Different clubs have different levels of commitment, ranging from meetings/practices every single day to meetings/practices once a week or every two weeks. My favorite extracurricular opportunities include basketball, art club, photography club and history club! The support of the administration is fantastic! Not only are new clubs allowed to be established, but there are opportunities to apply for a grant to get your club up and running! Every single day after school, there is some type of club meeting!
