    "The success my sons have had this year is a testimony to the amazing education they received in their 9 years at Rutgers Prep. They arrived with a solid foundation, eager to learn yet limited in their English language skills. They were welcomed by a community that embraced difference, expected them to strive to meet their potential, encouraged them to develop a variety of skills and talents while never allowing them to forget their responsibility to be good citizens. Now, they stand out because of their confidence to engage with their teachers and peers, their ability to ask thoughtful questions and their intellectual curiosity. My older son received 40 credits for the AP classes he took and can skip several general requirements at UNC Chapel Hill. My younger son has found great success in even the most challenging IB courses because of the rigor of the academic program and the study habits he learned at RPS. So, he can focus on other activities and adjusting to a new country and culture. We are so grateful to the teachers who cared for, challenged and ultimately prepared my two boys for whatever comes their way. That is a gift that has no price and whose value will never diminish."

    "I have worked at Rutgers Preparatory School for 12 years. If you had told anyone that has ever known me that I would work at any one place for 12 years, they would have laughed uncontrollably. Yet, here I am! I simply can not imagine any other place where I could be happier. If you spend even one day on this campus you understand the truly unique environment that RPS fosters. The students are bright, happy and engaged. Dare I say they seem excited to be at school. I could go on and on about the community feel, the great teachers and staff and the wonderful facilities, but I will simply say that after 12 years here I feel like it is my home and I can not imagine ever leaving."

    "My son has been at Rutgers Prep for years and is currently a student in the Upper School. The school has been a place where he has grown into a self-aware and kind young man, the result of faculty who lead and inspire children to try new activities and ideas. RPS's real-world diversity has been an inspiration for my child to truly understand the work. The writing and ideas he has explored in English, History, and Science classes has made my son a capable writing and thinker. I think the world of the school and I am grateful for the experiences my son has enjoyed at RPS."

    "As a graduate of RPS I can say that I received an excellent education at RPS. The quality and depth of my education was apparent after the first few weeks on UPenn's campus. I was prepared not only for the workload but also confident that I could produce the caliber of work that was expected of the student body at UPenn. I began RPS in the middle school and started to understand what it felt like to move towards my academic and athletic potential. By my Junior year at RPS I took upper level classes, earning grades I was proud of, and excelling athletically. Before attending RPS I barely dreamed of excelling academically or athletically. Before RPS I felt lost in the crowd, yet while at RPS I felt nurtured, challenged, and valued as a person. Now, years after graduating, I see the path that my RPS education made possible for me. I know I am a more confident, empathetic and a well rounded person for having gone to Rutgers Prep."

    "RPS Thank you for being the place that gives our son - confidence, a voice and a sense of pride. It was very hard for a shy kid to take a chance and go to a school away from his friends in public school and where he didn t know anybody. It didn t take long for him to blend in and take advantage of everything that RPS has to offer academics, athletics, supportive and available teachers, diversity, independence, and I could go on. He wears his RPS clothing with a smile and the ride home is filled with conversation about his day. This is truly incredible considering that the teen years, we heard, are typically a time when boys stop sharing information with their parents. We look forward to next year when his younger brothers will join this amazing community. We only have one regret Why did we wait so long to send them to RPS??"
