    Rolling Hills Prep is an amazing school. I come from a public school background and the difference from a public and private school is huge. The biggest difference between the two is the class sizes and the help you can get from the teachers. RHP is a very small independent school so therefore each class has about 12 students. Therefore, the teachers can have more one on one time with the students and being able to help them. Also, the teachers here are very kind and helping.

    So happy we came to this school that really supports and inspires students to achieve all they can. So impressed with teachers and support available to help struggling students connect with learning. Big hearted school. Helped us deal with the stress and anxiety of academics/social balance of HS, while preparing students to dream big and reach for the stars. It lacks nothing a big school offers.
    This school changed my son's life. They work with students so they learn the process of learning and then teach them how to apply it to whatever situation they encounter. The teachers care about each and every student. They have small class sizes so the students can get individualized help when needed.

    The school has also started at 10 year plan for growth and enhancements to the facilities and programming such as a student center and a more in depth STEM program. I recommend this school to everyone who wants to see their child prosper.
