    "We are proud parents of a son (RPS class of 2010) and daughter (RPS class of 2014). Each entered RPS in the Middle School, and then completed the Upper School. Their RPS experiences were excellent and very gratifying. The school and staff provided the intimate and nurturing environment that allowed our children to develop into self-confident, mature young adults. With the wide range of advanced academic offerings, each of our children created rigorous schedules emphasizing their interests. Both our son and daughter found the educators ALWAYS willing to avail themselves for any help or guidance needed. Our son is about to complete an undergraduate degree at a notable Northeast engineering school. Later this year, our daughter will begin the journalism program at a prestigious Eastern college. RPS taught our children to become leaders in the classroom, and on the sports fields. These outcomes would not have been possible without the well-rounded education afforded them at RPS. We could not have made better investments in the futures of our children than sending them to RPS."

    "Extremely disappointing and highly over-rated. While there are some genuinely caring staff members at the school, overall we found the Lower School teaching quality mediocre to quite poor, while the administration was high-handed, authoritarian and uncooperative. There seemed to be a strong emphasis on conformity versus creativity. They were neither kid- nor parent-friendly, and our child was manifestly unhappy there. Considering the small class sizes, which should have been a plus, there was an astounding level of psychological bullying. If this school spent as much energy on providing a supportive learning environment as they do on public relations and fundraising they might someday live up to the carefully crafted image they like to put forward. Once parents sign the contract, the tone can change quite quickly."

    "As a parent of two graduates of RPS, I am extremely grateful for the education they received. They both found their passion (one for science and one for law), were admitted to their first choice schools, left HS with self confidence, and were better prepared for college than many of their peers. They are now successful young professionals in law and medicine and I'm convinced that their RPS experience was critical in their success. RPS has teachers who love to teach and a diverse student body. Their RPS education was a great investment, probably the best my wife and I have made for our children."

    "Rutgers Prep is one of the hidden gems in a highly competitive independent school market. My children have attended Rutgers Prep for the last eight years and have embraced the academic rigor and the core values offered by the institution. There are so many opportunities to carve out your niche and follow your passion. At Rutgers Prep, not only do faculty members know my children, they are advocates for them and know their best selves. I could not be more proud of my kids and know that the Rutgers Prep community deserves a large part of the credit."
