St. Augustine Preparatory School
#1 Best Private High Schools in Atlantic County
- Private School
- Richland, NJ
Parent: Our son is smart, but not driven. He needed motivation to push him to achieve. He received excellent counseling, guidance, and academic help from the teachers and staff at St. A. Prep. We believe that, because he was neither a “brilliant” nor a “troubled” student, he would have fallen through the cracks at our local public school. Most of his teachers have been great. Some have been truly exceptional. The counselors and academic staff have been priceless.
He loves his school. Bullying at St. A is non exsistant, and all the boys support and look out for one another. It might sound corny, but they truly treat each other as brothers. He is only a sophomore, but I know the next few years will be just as great!

Kent Place School
- Private School

- PK, K-12
Parent: Overall, my daughter had a positive experience at the Upper School. She is well prepared for college academics.
As with many prep schools, the students at Kent Place are overwhelmingly goal oriented. Everything these kids do seems directed towards the college application process. The culture of achievement, of resume building, can be overwhelming. There are many bright and talented girls who go here.
Strengths of the school currently include the English department and the History department. It has been challenging for the school to recruit strong math and science teachers, despite having a nice new STEM building.
If you're reading this trying to decide if your daughter should go here, do your homework. If she is smart, ambitious and hard working, this might be the place for her. She will be challenged. She will be tested. She will be stressed. And she will be very proud that she endured all of this, and go on to a great college somewhere.
