Overall, predidio school has been quite a switch to the usual public chool experience. Although it does lack if some areas such as activities it is a very welcoming and warm enviroment for all studentend, alum, staff, and educators alike. Presidio treats is populous as a family and tge school truly does vare about each and every child. Its small size helps them be one on one with everyone and the size has contributed to a all students learning to get along and learn work, and be friends with everyone. Where it lacks it makes up for with the care they do put into neccesary things such as academics, saftely, and tending to all student needs.

I have two children at this school and we are very pleased with the education they receive. Not only are the core subjects taught with rigor, but the extracurricular offerings are a comprehensive addition to the curriculum. The teachers are highly qualified and caring. There is a real bonding that our children enjoy; being part of the Presidio family. Dr. Saliba is the principal who always makes himself available to my husband and me. Our children will continue through their high school AP coursework. Hooray for this school!
Amazing staff and academics that really prepare students for college. Although structural changes during my junior year made for math and foreign language programs that lacked, the admins straightened everything out and by senior year all was good. There is also a lack of extra curricular activites and sports for high school, but with the amount of preparation you receive for post high school life, it doesn't make a huge difference.
