University Prep a very special place. Looking back at my time at UPrep in middle-and upper school - it was an amazing time that I am grateful for everyday. A challenging education from the best faculty could hope for in a college prep atmosphere that fostered community while inspiring the individual. College was a snap -thanks to the education I received. Today, my son attends UPrep. While I look around and see how different the campus is, the dedication and heart are the same. After 40 years, UPrep continues to be a cutting edge, inclusive community shaping the next generation of global citizens. The learning and life experience gained here is second to none.

With two completely different style learners in our house, finding our family's best fit was a hurtle without them in two separate schools. UPrep has exceeded our expectations. The faculty and staff all know my children and family. The teachers who care about your child's success has been overwhelming. From becoming new member of the community, feeling right at home from the start, to now looking for colleges with a high schooler, our family has utilized every aspect of the school expertise, compassion, and experience to take my children to the next stage in their lives. They are ready, independent, strong, compassionate members of society.

Our family experience with University Prep has been very positive. The high quality of educators and administrators have offered to our children an amazing academic program and the socio-emotional support appropriate for their teen years. I have been impressed with the content of the curriculum and the great variety of engaging courses that students can take. The approach is experiential and presents many different options in arts and athletic opportunities. The local, national, and global educational opportunities are incredible as students learn and explore cultures while developing critical thinking and understanding of diversity and social justice issues. U Prep commitment and approach to equity and inclusion fits our family values. Finally, the level of community building and the thoughtful communication to parents makes the experience at U Prep welcoming to families. We love this school!

As an alum of University Prep who graduated 23 years ago, my review is based on my experience looking back at my time at the school. I can say it was one of the best experiences I had. I made life long friends, had a happy high school experience, got opportunities to do things that I never would have at a larger public school (i.e. played sports, participated in musicals and dramas, traveled to different countries through programs offered...etc.). Although the school has gotten bigger and changed in many ways, the culture and teachers I experienced remains true today as it did more than 20-years ago. If you have the opportunity to attend you prep I would highly recommend it.
