The Prout School Reviews

Many of the kids that go to the school in class, are very immature. You see that happen with multiple issues happening in two particular sports involving disciplinary situations. Teachers at the school work hard and want you to achieve, but with immature kids and no discipline at all, due to administration changes there is no discipline at all. Kids do whatever they want this year and are very self centered.Immaturity shows the results in some sports programs, by showing some of the teams they suck due to immaturity. If you want to go to a school where students respect each other and do not judge you, you should not go to this school. Go to a good school like Hendricken.

Definitely don't regret attending this school! I feel prepared for college, and I have definitely been challenged. The school sports are solid; there are some D1 teams, and the D2 teams usually win the championships. Prout girls tennis, girls swim, boys hockey, and boys lacrosse are pretty good. Prout's class size is a little smaller than other schools (about 130 students). The sport's facilities could be better, but I hear they're redoing the fields and adding a track. For me, Prout was the only southern Catholic school in RI, so it was pretty convenient for me compared to an hour commute to LaSalle.
I have not had a great experience at the Prout school so far, this schools sports is very upsetting to me. The lack of good coaches is clearly not defined. The athletic director is a complete moron and does not know what he is doing. The discipline does not exist. I have also noticed within the culture of the students. These students believe they are God's gift and are above everyone, for example the kids who play sports. They do not respect adults at all and think they are above the law. Therefore I will be taking my talents to IMG Academy where I will be further my academic and sports career.
