    "Average school academically, but excels in sports. It is an embarassment to the Catholic Church as religion is optional.."

    "Academically average at best. The administration is not approachable and incompetent. It has all the alcohol /drug problems of your local high school. Don't waste your money here, many better options."

    "Don Bosco Prep was the best decision I have ever made in regards to picking an academic institution. Looking back on my time, I would not have wanted it any other way. The feeling of brotherhood is unmatched and never leaves your mind whether you are talking with close friends you made at the prep or the alumni. The academics are what you make of it, and if you combine that with a solid sport record you are nearly guaranteed a great college. I know many kids in my grade who focused solely on academics (AP's, Honors, etc) and they all got into tier 1 schools, and I know others who focused on sports and also got into great schools. You can truly challenge yourself by taking advanced classes and involving yourself in many campus clubs/activities. Also on another note the alumni connections are very strong. I have leveraged/have been helped by ironmen alumni, and I base that on the bond and connections that you create at Bosco. I know I am talking for all my friends when I say I truly loved my time at Bosco, and nothing will ever match it. I plan on sending my kids there without a doubt."

    "During my four years as a student I learned the values of honesty, integrity, and character. Though the perception of many that the priority of the school is their athletic program, I can very honestly say from my four years in attendance, the emphasis on academics far outweighs that on the athletics. I was challenged in the classroom by teachers who had genuine concern for my academic progress, as well as on the wrestling mat by coaches devoted to my success. Not once did I feel a lack of support or confidence from the faculty, staff, and/or administration. When talking to current parents about my days at Bosco, I always convey that feeling of support. The students ARE held to a higher standard of success. When a student shows some small example of extra interest, attention, or effort either in the classroom or an extracurricular activity the teacher capitalizes upon the opportunity for growth. It is this constant positive reinforcement of good qualities, coupled with the personal interest on the part of the teachers that sets Don Bosco Prep on a pedestal above all the rest. Boys ARE molded into men. I would not be the man I am today had I not attended Don Bosco Prep."
