We have been very pleased with our children's experience at Prince. They are challenged academically, developing life skills that help them build strong character and respect for others, and have a variety of activities to be involved with. We also love the Christ centered focus, especially when they face and overcome life challenges.
Most of the great reviews here no doubt concern the elementary school. It's wonderful. The upper school, however, is an academic joke. It's basically a glorified day care for older kids and is themed around sports. The Evangelical leanings are well-intended but don't really prepare kids to enter a world filled with different views very well.
We have experience with our local public school and one other smaller private school in Oconee County. Prince is by far the very best choice for our son. He is a brilliant child with focusing difficulties and Prince has done an exceptional job keeping him both challenged and on track. Sports programs are top notch here and all kids are encouraged to give them a try. You can't beat the Christian perspetive to really round out your child. I love the supportive teaching environment and the qualiy of the students here!
So far, I am so impressed with this school and teachers. What a refreshing difference from public school... -- NO EXCUSES are given about why the child cannot grasp concepts, the teachers and staff actually care about the child and the future of the child. I cringe when I think about public schools and how and what they are getting away with. Not only do they care (Prince), they actually teach the children about God with no excuses as to his existence. I am thankful that I put the effort into finding a decent school for my children.
I would not recommend this school to anyone. They have had a lot of problems in all areas. First of all, they have been through several Head Masters in the last few years. No one can seem to get on the same page. But most importantly, they are lacking in academics. They are no further ahead than a public school. If you are serious about a private school, spend the time to research other private schools.
