My child has been attending this school since the 2nd grade and is now in the 8th. My family is not rich and have to save throughout the year to have the tuition saved up. We have always felt like we belonged there. My child is very happy, and the academics is pretty rigorous. I, as a parent truly appreciate that they teach the children independence and responsibility, traits that I as a parent also try to instill in my children. He will graduate from this school no matter the cost. We will find a way to make it happen.

I am a former student of this school and I have never been so unhappy as I was when I was there. The staff was nice but I felt like a lot of them were under qualified. If I asked a teacher a question about something I am learning I don't believe that 'I don't know' is a sufficient answer. I was so unhappy there that I asked my parents to remove me from the school. This is a school that favors rich people and does not cater to the urban community. Ridiculous!

We are just finishing up our first year at Augusta Prep. My daughter is in the preschool program and we couldn't be happier. The teachers are fantastic. As a former director of a full day preschool, I am a tough customer when it comes to preschool education. They have an engaging curriculum and the children really enjoy learning. From the moment we took our tour, I was hooked. They were able to answer all my questions to my liking and have followed through with their responses. Parents are very involved and the entire environment is very friendly. My daughter will continue to attend this school as long as we live in this area. It is definitely a school that needs to be explored if you are looking for a great quality preschool and beyond.

Our family has been at Prep since our child (now a Sophomore) was in Kindergarten. We've been quite pleased with the academic programs as well as the caring community of Prep Faculty, Staff, and Parents.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
