Students are taught to respect themselves as well as others in a Christian, womenly manner. Integrity,leadership and good morals are key factors and are taken very seriously. Class sizes are generally small and adequate. The faculty is qualified, making sure to help every girl who comes to them for help, and all have efficient degrees. However, the distinguish between Honors and Regents classes is unnecessary. Some girls in Regents classes deserve to be promoted and are not given the chance to challenge themselves in a Honors class. Most transfer students who come from generally exceptonal high schools and have an overall A average are given that opportunity from the start. However, those who come from high schools that ar not considered as challenging in Preston's eye and have an overall A average are not given the same opportunity. Exclusive electives are only offered to those who are 'smart' enough to be admitted, instead of those who have a true passion for the subject. With that passion and natural inner-drive, it is almost inevitable that the student will push themselves as hard as possible to maintain a decent grade in the class. Therefore, because of how their curriculum is set up, Preston girls tend to focus on grades, averages, and rankings, instead of a sincere love and curiousity for each subject, knowing that along with their unquenchable thirst comes zeal, and with zeal, good grades. In addition, not enough is done about short skirts. The skirt length can be at times ridiculous, and in some cases offensive.
