Santa Fe Preparatory School Reviews

Santa Fe Prep has a beautiful campus, excellent teachers and caring staff. Unfortunately bullying, superiority complexes and the lack of diversity has really lowered the standards for this school. The weakest subject in the school are the sciences which is too bad, from a school that boasts a well rounded education. Prep helps students be prepared for college and challenges thinking and fosters great ideas. The problem is, at what cost will a student have to witness and/or be the target of bullying, made to feel like a second class citizen, or have their idea shut down by other students, before the administration starts to look at these problems and seek answers.

Overall, Santa Fe Prep is a needlessly stressful experience. It takes the academics of a college like Harvard and puts it in a high school setting. Some of the teachers especially forget that other classes exist and as such might assign a huge assignment, like a paper or project, on the same day something else really big is due in another class. On the same note, communication between staff, faculty, and students is severely lacking; one might say nonexistent. Oh, and, have mercy on your soul if you happen to get sick-- it WILL take at least a week to get back on track, and that's only if you're willing to further risk your own mental health. So, in general, if you want to be significantly over-prepared for almost any college, then this is the school for you. If not, avoid the campus altogether.
Prepares you for college. Small classrooms for individual attention. I would give academics A+. I wish there were more languages to chose from.
