Because it’s a small middle/high school, it’s both a blessing and a curse. Because the school is small, student don’t get many electives and hardly have any fun activities. However, students are able to develop a close relationship with teachers, and have better access to their teachers. The classes tend to push students to be their best with the help of well trained teachers, but there are occasions where students stress a lot because of the pressure that other classes cause and the lack of fun activities/clubs. Other than that I seriously recommend the school to any student who wants to excel academically.

Young Women's Preparatory Academy is more than a school. It is a family and an inspiring community. I really came out of my shell at this facility with nurturing teachers who had extensive knowledge of materials and amazing friends. The small classes allow the teachers to form excellent relations with the students and the students really feel at home. When a teacher knows every student and can distinguishes everyone's strengths and weaknesses, the learning environment is amplified to one of care and comfort as well as rigorous and challenging. Being single gender also has significant benefits as it has truly allowed me to become proud with having a voice. The environment makes one fearless of being the best. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Young Women's Preparatory Academy and it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend a public single gender school.
Young Women's Preparatory has been my home since middle school. It is an all girls school that cultivates an appreciation for perseverance, education, and building strong women. Throughout my years in high school, I was able to keep close-knit relationships with teachers that I have known for years. Since this is a college preparatory, I can confidently say that I am ready for the rigor of college.
