    "I run a non-profit in town and have always been impressed by the caliber of the students from Santa Fe Prep who have interned with us. Now I have a 7th grader at Prep who is thriving at the school and recently I had the opportunity to shadow her for a full day. From what I observe the teachers know their fields and are passionate about teaching. They don't teach to the middle but meet the students where they are, know their learning style and engage them. The size of the school is ideal. 320 is small enough to create a community where every student is well known and no one falls through the proverbial cracks. Yet the school is large enough to have a wide variety of courses and extracurricular activities. The students seem to genuinely care about each other. They study together, attend each others' games and performances and cheer each other on in and outside of the classroom. The culture is one of constantly striving to do more and to do better. It is also very welcoming, the admissions folks are down to earth and I would encourage you to visit Prep and observe for yourself whether it would meet your child's needs."

    "We have two children in the upper school. They entered Santa Fe Preparatory in 7th grade and have been inspired by the academic culture at SFP. The teachers are dedicated, impassioned and very much available to students and parents throughout the social and academic journey. SFP offers excellent academics with intensive honors courses as well as an impressive array of art classes and a caring environment. Santa Fe Breakthrough is housed at Santa Fe Prep and this and other community service programs encourage students to reach beyond the private school campus and be a part of the larger community. College counseling is excellent."

    "My son is in his second year at Prep, and we have been pleased with the challenge of the education he's getting and with the diversity of the students. Within a few weeks, it was obvious to see he was excited about what he was learning - this came from strong teachers who are invested in what they are teaching. He's not your typical jock (though Prep has quite a few of those), but quickly found his group of slightly nerdy, academically focussed kids. With teenagers, you have to ride some ups and downs, but we can tell he loves the place. We are happy with the choice we made to send him to Prep."

    "I am a parent of a former student at SF Prep. We left because of continuing systemic and cultural issues that were becoming more pronounced. The staff is dedicated, but the quality of individual teachers is lacking overall. There is no rubric / uniformity in grading and expectations of the students. Students tend to be slotted into grade categories, rather than earning the grade they deserve. The "college prep" aspect of the school is questionable. Most of the kids are guided toward expensive, but low profile, northeastern universities and study liberal arts. Overall the school demoralized my child (who made OK grades there). Save the tuition cost."

    "I am a professor emeritus who has taught at the University of Colorado, Boulder and St. John's College, here in Santa Fe. I have been most impressed by the quality of the educational experience at prep. The teachers are first-rate and the facilities excellent. It is by far the best lower-upper school in the Santa Fe area. Truly a wonderful place."
