    "The education at Prep is great. classes are challenging, teachers are fantastic, and they really prepare you for college academic- wise. However, the one aspect that totally ruined it for me is the student body. The students are either jocks or preppy. A majority are rich and look down on you if you are not wealthy. They received new cars once they got their license. I could not afford a car when i got my license, so i drove my parents' car. Often times I had to be dropped off and picked up and i got teased for that. Everyone wore either designer, preppy clothes or athletic clothes. If you dressed any other way, you probably did not have friends. I have also noticed a lot of bragging going on about many things. Everyone bragged about their phones, cars, clothes, social life, their future college, etc. Everyone knew everything about each other and talked behind their back. I did not want to believe the whole stereotype about prep school kids, but it is unfortunately true. If you aren't preppy or athletic, you will not fit in. You will be considered weird and different, and they'll stare at you like they did to me. They'll mock you sometimes right to your face. You should expect to be alone the four years. Cliques are major here. Everyone ONLY talks within their clique and sits with them at lunch, class, school masses, retreats, etc. The kids here all think they're big shots (especially the football players and cheerleaders), and their world will be crushed when they leave high school. They are all teachers pets too. They take advantage of the teachers and try to act funny and try to be the center of attention all class. Despite that, the education is phenominal, and the staff really strives to make sure you get the most out of your education and that you have a sure path into college."

    "Prep has great teachers, but there are some areas that need improvement. Their english department is fantastic. The English teachers are challenging and will actually teach. The math department needs improvement. The tests are difficult, but most of the teachers will not thoroughly teach the material and expect you to learn it outside of class. Most classes are notes and lectures then an examination."

    "Some teachers are better than others, that is at every school. Most of the teachers are really nice and easy to get along with."

    "I have loved my past 4 years here. It has been really nice, the work has been easy and my friends are even better. I wish I could stay In highschool longer but I'm ready for college."

    "My school is unique because we are only one out of fifty schools in the whole nation that can call ourselves a Jesuit preparatory school. I'm so thankful to be a part of the Prep family and to be taught in a Jesuit fashion. My education has really taught me how to challenge myself mentally and to fully better myself in all aspects. If I were to go back in time, I wouldn't rather go to any other high school. I consider myself to be more educated and moral now than when I started school here."
