Attending St. Francis Prep was one of the best choices I have made thus far in my lifetime. SFP is more than a high school, it truly becomes your second home for your entire four years there. The students, teachers, and faculty become one big family and everyone has a sense of closeness to one another.

You can rest assured that you will be receiving a quality education while attending SFP. Everything I learned during my time at St. Francis Prep has prepared for me for what I would learn in college, sometimes giving me an upper edge. Speaking of college; SFP prepares you beyond belief for being a successful student in college. I went to college nervous like most people, but soon realized I had nothing to worry about thanks to my teachers and advisors at St. Francis Prep.

If you're worried about paying tuition for SFP just know that you are getting the best bang for you buck!
Review St. Francis Preparatory School
My experience at St. Francis Preparatory School has been a wonderful experience throughout my 4 years of high school. This private institution prepares it's students for college. They also have great resources for their student to use and the opportunities here are endless. The school is very diverse and there are many activities to choose from . St. Francis Preparatory School is still improving ever since I entered from freshman year. The Prep has well built music rooms that I have enjoyed using and the hallways have been redone. Even some of their bathrooms have been redone. The prep also has an amazing physical education facility. Send your children here because high school is for 4 years, but the Prep is for life !
Prep is an okay school, but they're way too strict with tuition and it's pretty expensive. They're always asking for money for things and make unnecessary renovations to the school. It's almost as if they value money over education. They're teachers are mostly good, but a fair amount of them can't teach which will result in you failing the course. The food is also pretty expensive and isn't quality. Overall prep is just alright.
