My four years at Prep have been awesome! There are a few downsides coming to this school but I still encourage people to come check it out. Academics and college readiness are pretty good, although I think there are some academic departments where there could be "better" teachers. Socially Prep is OK. We are known for being really cliquey and it is very true. Everyone is very friendly and nice to each other it is just very obvious who hangs out with who. This school is also very challenging, and they do not hide that fact but I have had some pretty hard nights (sometimes weeks) because I was so stressed out. There have been a couple times where I have thought about what it would have been like if I attended elsewhere, but I do not regret my decision going to high school here because Prep has provided so many opportunities for my life through high school and beyond and I will always be thankful.

I have met so many amazing people from all different backgrounds while at Prep. Most of the teachers are very supportive and kind, but honestly it's pretty hit or miss with them. Prep can be a little cliquey, but it really depends on your class. There is definitely less drama than some of the other private schools in the area which I am very appreciative of. The classes are tough and can be quite stressful, but thankfully many of the colleges that Prep is in touch with know about our rigorous classes. Overall, I've had a pretty good experience with Seattle Prep so far!
I transferred to Seattle Prep my sophomore year of high school. Transitioning was difficult, I didn't fit in with the crowd. I am currently a Senior, and I love my teachers and classes, yet my social experience has not been great. I would recommend Prep if you start freshman year!
