Walter Payton College Prep Reviews
Review Walter Payton College Prep
Great school! Very challenging academics if one applies oneself, which is representative of most students. Very competitive in the academic sense, but most students play sports, and in that sense teamwork is a very important aspect of the school.
I love this school. The best teachers, students, resources, and the atrium is beautiful! I have played sports here, joined clubs, and had an overall great experience. It truly is a college preparatory school, as it sends its students off to the best universities in the nation and across the globe!
Walter Payton College Prep is a fantastic school with great academic, sports and extracurricular programs. Anyone who gets in would be very lucky to attend. It is a great school to foster community and grow as a person regardless of your background or identity. Being a Grizzly is awesome!
