Poly Prep Country Day School Reviews

My daughter hid the fact that she could read from her preschool friends and teachers. When she joined Poly in Kindergarten, she was painfully shy, seldom spoke outside of our home, and had a folder on my computer containing over 100 stories she had written, revisited, added to, and revised. She will be entering Poly's High School next year and has blossomed in the embrace of Poly Prep. The girl who hid behind me, peering out at the class from behind my legs, now stars in musical theatre, loves school, and is accepted, supported, and encouraged for who she is and what she hopes to become.

I have seen Poly from every angle. Poly provides every tool for you to be ready for college. Every single department is stellar and has teachers who have have doctorates or been professions in that general field. The library is reliable and Google Drive makes projects and communication with teachers simple. One sceptisim is that some people beyond our doors might find some Poly kids as lazy rich kids. That might be true in some cases, but Poly gives you the opportunity to get into amazing schools: you must put in the work. Those who put in the work get rewarded with going to the most competitive universities in the countries and will be the most prepared for College and most importantly the real world. I have enjoyed my 8 years at Poly. Poly has everything someone should be around, diversity, passionate teachers, strong athletics, clubs, arts and everyone should consider going there.
Poly's a great school- the school spirit is outstanding, and the students are united. Poly students have an impressive work ethic and they are determined to do well without being uber competitive. School spirit is found in events like homecoming, a popular favorite, or club events like dodgeball. The typical Poly student is a student who loves to do many things and loves to get involved.
