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!
Review Seattle Preparatory School
Prep has done an amazing job of pushing my academic abilities as well as helping to shape me as a person. Every year they have us address the question of human nature, to consider the world outside of ourselves, and have us hone in on our values and what kind of person we want to become. Prep guides its student teachings on five basic principles for readiness: committed to justice, spiritually alive, intellectually competent, loving, and open to growth. I feel as though this school has helped me grow in a healthy, productive way since my freshman year. I can't imagine myself at any other school. The teachers are wonderful and connect to students. Administration really helps the students get put in classes that best suit their needs, and they offer numerous resources. It is a guided learning process that has left me feeling really prepared for college.
I had a really great time at this school. I made a lot of friends, and really grew as a person. The faculty and staff are there to support you and you can tell that they want you've to succeed. One thing I will say is that the school has a definite problem with cliques. The teachers play favorites sometimes, but they are all really nice!
