The only thing this school prepares boys for is prison! They do not care how they act at all. They are not being prepared to be decent, contributing members of society. They don't even make them go to school 5 days a week. The main focus is sports. It doesn't matter to this school how they win a game, just IF they win. These kids are being robbed!

What a difference a change of environment and the stepping out on faith can make! God is opening opportunities for my family and especially my son. I decided months ago to take my son out of public school and transfer him to Stellar Prep High School which is a smaller classroom setting with less distraction. It is also built around the success of your student becoming a academic athlete. Did he resist the change in the beginning, YES! Because he wouldn't see girls all day and be around people that he thought he was like. A person becomes his environment the majority of the time and I knew in my heart his environment needed to be changed for him to be successful! Don't get me wrong he isn't perfect, but he is moving in the right direction to focus more on going to college and becoming a positive young man! Change is good if you're trying to ensure your successful! Becoming what God has destine for you to become, instead of what society had decided what you will be is SUCCESSFUL ALL ON IT'S OWN! THANKS STELLAR PREPARATORY HIGH FOR GIVEN MY SON THIS OPPORTUNITY!

My son has been attending Stellar Prep for a year now. He has made a major improvement in grades and motivation in such a short amount of time. In that short amount of time the school has delivered on all of their promises. Classes are 4 days a week, and the classes are NOT 35 min long as stated in the last parent review. The school hours are from 8:30 to 3. And on Fridays the boys are supposed to do community services, or SAT and ACT training/prep. They do not meet in conference rooms, but they have an actual school located at 2021 Highland Blvd, Hayward Ca. Another very important attribute that my son has never received before is all of the attention and help he is receiving from the staff at Stellar Prep. The Coach and Teachers are able to focus more on my sons weakness and areas that he needs help in. At Stellar Prep he has received the help that he was not getting at any of the other schools that he has attended in the past. The Coaches and Teachers are driven to the success of the students and it shows. I think that Stellar Prep s actions should speak for themselves. They are a little school that is striving for major success and all for our children.

Consider your options carefully before sending your son to Stellar Prep. While the intentions to prepare young men for their academic and sports careers, the school fails miserably. Their goal is to make athletes more appealing to college recruits. However, it is unlikely considering how the school is ran. The school only meets 4 days a week, and classes are only 35 minutes long. This means that other schools have twice as much instructional times than them. This will definitely adversely affect their SAT and ACT scores because they will only cover half the material that the College Board will expect. Additionally, classes do not meet in classrooms. They meet in conference rooms that are not properly equipped. At best you have a single white board, and at worst you have an easel board and pad. Most classes do not even have textbooks of any kind. How can you expect them to learn Geometry without a text? Science classes do not have a lab component. They are not WASC accredited, and most likely would be denied. In a word--Beware!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
