Santa Fe Preparatory School Reviews

Excellent preparatory 7-12 school with a growing commitment to diversity and affordability. Wonderful teachers and beautiful campus. They require participation in sports but kids can opt out if they want to concentrate on something not available at the school. Administration is kind and competent. Not many downsides, but their science program could be stronger particularly in middle school, also a lot of homework in increasing amounts through the years. They are very thoughtful/intentional regarding preparation for college (and life) by encouraging self-advocacy from middle school on. So happy this school exists in Santa Fe!

I love my teachers at Prep and have formed amazing relationships with them. My experience with math and science here and also with academics overall and college readiness has been awesome. Prep could definitely put more emphasis than they do on performing arts like theater and dance - there is definitely a clear emphasis on sports, especially soccer. Diversity at Prep is something that needs to improve - to better represent the community it is in. Overall, I have felt safe and welcome at Prep, but I do think the school culture can be exclusive based on economic status and/or sports involvement of students.
Santa Fe Prep is an excellent environment for learning and growth. Prep has outstanding academic courses, which can be challenging, but with these challenges comes fantastic support from classmates, advisors, and teachers who are always willing to help. Along with academics, Santa Fe Prep also has many extracurricular activities. Student-organized clubs are a way for students with like-minded interests to gather and take part in fun activities/games/etc. Prep has many sports teams, and a no-cut policy, which ensures participation from each player and makes the sport more fun. Through clubs, sports, activities, and other opportunities I have been offered here at Santa Fe Prep, I have made many friendships. Personally, I am most impressed with the community at Prep. I feel very welcome anywhere on campus, I am supported by my classmates and teachers, and I always feel that I am in an environment in which I can grow. Santa Fe Prep is a supportive and fun learning experience.
