Regent Preparatory School Reviews
Rating 4.33 out of 5 21 reviews
Very classical which I love but not perfect. Most teachers are fabulous but a few are very flawed and that brings down my overall teacher rating.
Regent provides an amazing education experience. The students are surrounded by faculty of various Christian denominations, giving them an unbiased look at Christianity. The curriculum is more challenging than a public school would be, because of the level of reading that the school's literature choices have brought us to, and the detail with which math and history are taught. Additionally, the students are well prepared for the senior thesis experience by countless writing assignments. The school is small which provides for a great sense of community with all the students and teachers.
I have had an impactful experience at Regent that I am almost certain I would not be able to find anywhere else. Not only have I been challenged academically and been taught at a high level, but my character has been challenged as well. Regent not only provides a classical education but instills moral character in their students, cultivating virtue. Because of the classical curriculum, I have had the opportunity to be exposed to the great ancient philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle, engage in classical literature, and take classes such as Theology and Rhetoric. Although the curriculum is impressive, it is the people that make the school so unique. Teachers are truly interested in ensuring that each one of their students is developed as a man/ woman of God, and have an enthusiasm for the material they are teaching. Students are kind to each other, inclusive, and uplifting, my classmates will be some of my lifelong friends. The community is spectacular.
We evaluated many private schools in the Tulsa area and found many wonderful options for our two children but Regent felt special. We didn’t really understand what made a classical school different, but the more we learned about the classical philosophy the more we liked it. Our children have thrived socially, spiritually, and academically under the care of excellent teachers, thoughtful administrators, and wonderful parents who have grown to become like family.
We could not be more pleased with Regent and feel we are receiving a great value for our investment. Our children look forward to school, have countless friends, love their teachers, receive a stellar education, and are surrounded by a community of like-minded families who we trust to provide positive examples of productive, faithful, successful, and loving Christian homes. Students are expected to work hard in an academically rigorous environment but they are surrounded by teachers, administrators, and parents who support their spiritual, intellectual, and character development. Facilities continue to improve with the addition of the gym, football and baseball fields, and the new dedicated high school building. Administration, staff, teachers, and parents continue to dream, build, and nurture what I truly believe is among the best classical Christian schools available to families in Oklahoma and beyond.
Overall, Regent Prep is a great school filled with immense academic potential. The students are eager to learn new material every day. In fact, Regent students are not afraid of a challenge; instead, we gladly accept them. This is the difference between us and other schools. We don't learn information just to get an A; we learn information to benefit our own personal knowledge and well-being.
Our child attended Regent for three years. During that time there were significant changes in the school moving to a sports atmosphere rather than a classic arts school like when our child started. The classical education model is wonderful, but some of the teachers are very legalistic to the point of harming students. The student population is also made up of very wealthy families, and cliques within the parent community are not only impenetrable, but also trickle down to the students as well. There are positive aspects to this school, but we moved our child, and it was a positive move for our family. When we started, the education as Regent was exactly what we wanted for our child; although some of those core values still exist, overall, we left finding it a myopic slice socioeconomically, educationally, and socially; undoubtedly, that is not what the real world is like.
My daughter goes to Regent and we are so pleased with all aspects of this school! Classical Education is THE way to teach. They teach students how to think, not what to think.
The school has always been a tightly knit family; however, it is turning into more of a clique of private kid stereotypes. Some of my truest friends came from Regent, and they really challenge and prepare their students for academic success.
We don't have a large student population, so we have many multi-sport/ multi activity student
The educational experience is well preparing me for college. I have had the best friends I could ask for here. Incredible what the teachers do to make you feel prepared, and included, in anything.
They go above and beyond to make sure that we have the best classroom experience, and make learning fun and enjoyable.
It's been a great high school experience. It's important to consider that this school is in the process of growing and does not have the full fledged facilities of a public school (yet). The teachers are great; they have prepared me well for college and taught me important life lessons. The curriculum wasn't too hard for me and gave me a wide knowledge base which I'm thankful for as all kinds of things that I've learned come up frequently.
they love us like no one else would
they don't get how messed up teenagers are, they are working on reducing stress but its hard
The coaches and staff are wonderful my dad is my basketball coach as well as someone else who I can trust with anything, My volleyball coach is a second father, and my soccer coach is the man that showed me that forgiveness is never out of reach
