Marianapolis Preparatory School
- Private School
- Thompson, CT
Parent: My son is now a Junior at Marianapolis. I am so grateful we have been able to send him to MPrep. It is an excellent school academically, but even more than that, the teachers and staff are very dedicated and caring. The atmosphere is very kind, generous, supportive, and trusting. It has been a very good fit for my intelligent, but somewhat introverted son. The small class size, supportive caring teachers, really, really kind fellow students, and the atmosphere where everyone can try new things really makes MPrep the best! My son said to me after his first few weeks as a freshman that he could just not believe how nice and kind everyone was. He had come from a public school environment where there were cliques and some bullying as well as worn-out sarcastic teachers. He continues to say that a couple of times a year.

Niche User: My 8th grader has learned a lot and is well-prepared for high school. Since she entered in 6th grade, I notice much more openness to parent involvement, and MUCH better home-school communication. When my youngest entered 6th grade this year, the orientation and parent communication was fabulous-- like night and day as compared to 3 years ago. I love the weekly newsletters sent by email, as they are hugely informative. The school counselor my kids are assigned to is also amazing--so responsive and supportive. While there have been a couple of teachers I have not found to be ideal for either of my kids, the vast majority are top notch. KP has been great for both of my children.
