St. Joseph's Preparatory School Reviews

The Prep was an amazing fit for me. Its location has allowed me to commute into the city of Philadelphia and experience new things that have helped me mature on a level that is not possible at a suburban public high school. The community of students is remarkable. The all boy policy makes the classroom dynamic calmer and allows for a strong sense of "brotherhood" to form. The teachers here are very skilled, highly intelligent, and they boast impressive resumes. The academics are rigorous, but the teachers make themselves available for all students who need extra help in a class. While I play a sport at the Prep, I can tell you that each sport is very successful. If sports aren't your thing, there is an abundance of clubs at the Prep, from the Forensics Team to the Cape & Sword drama society, to the Jazz Band. The academics are great, the teachers are great, the activities are great, and the overall environment makes the Prep one of the best places to be.
Review St. Joseph's Preparatory School
This school is extremely competitive and does not get the recognition it deserves. It is much more challenging academically and athletically than most other schools. However, people and other schools don't give us the credit and respect that the Prep community provides for each and every one of their students. It is extremely upsetting to see us ranked this low. Who cares if we don't have a world class campus or are internationally recognized. We are the Prep, with the benefit of the doubt, men for and with others.
St. Joseph's Prep has been the best decision I have made in life so far. The academics have been rigorous and enlightening, and the environment is one that is open and welcoming but focused on success, on doing the magis: the more. This school is so much more than just outstanding academics: it's a brotherhood, an outstanding theatre program, and tireless in athletic pursuits all AMDG, for the greater glory of God.
