I really enjoyed my time at Scranton Prep. I feel very prepared for college, which is the school's main goal. It is really easy to make friends here whether through sports or just through classes. Prep's peers have a great close-knit relationship in which everyone wants to see each other succeed. Scranton Prep really gives you the ability to grow as a student and as a person. Prep has a plethora of teachers which a majority are excellent and they definitely can get challenging. I believe it is the best overall school in the area by far.

Overall had a pleasant experience. Of course there’s some snobs but 90% of the students that go here are focused on getting a good education and are very considerate and empathetic towards others. However, I do not think attending has given many many advantages over public high schools and the college preparation was FAIR. Definitely not as rigorous as it should have been, though people can argue with me.
Scranton Prep is a second home to me, a second family. The Scranton Prep family has impacted me tremendously inside the classroom but also outside of the classroom. They very much prepare you for college with their "college ready" classes and do a great job assisting in the admission process. The school spirit is astounding and motivates all students; past, present and future to attend all games and matches of their fellow peers. The facilities we are provided with are always clean and in tip-top condition. The academics are challenging to prepare us for college, but the faculty makes it interesting and is always there to help when needed. I love Scranton Prep and would not want to trade my high school experience for anything.
