Even though its an all boys school, do not let the name fool you! This school is amazing! Yes, there’s no girls, but this school really does get you ready for college. Teachers are very friendly and helpful. They will teach you until you fully understand the lesson. The school is very small with about 215 students in total. So that means you get to meet close friends and really get to know them. It was a fun 4 years being at this school! LIONS ROAR!

This school is in the middle of good and bad. It has its pros and it has its cons but overall the school is moderately okay. I would recommend the school to anyone who likes being in a small school environment with little to no student issues. If you are a parent who is looking for a small school setting with moderate level academics then this school is the one for you!
My experience at Young Men's' Preparatory has been one that I'll truly never forget. The environment was an uplifting one. The teachers were always available for questions and for really interesting advice on how to prepare for college and life outside of school. Young Men's' Preparatory Academy has made me an overall better person and has shown me the path for a better future.
