In reference to the Lower school - Pros: Kind faculty Creativity and individuality encouraged Range of after-school activies available (as is expected at an private school) Cons: Academically extremely poor compared to other private schools. School needs to be better organized. Improved communication between parents and the school are necessary. Paying for school lunch is a compulsory add-on to the fees and yet there is no supervision that children are eating adequately. My child reports eating what equates to 150 daily at lunch and - not ideal for a growing body and mind, especially as the children are active. School has an ethos of developing character. This has become the fashionable mantra of many a school these days, but with such lacking in terms of academic expectations at the lower school, children are essentially taught not to expect much from themselves. I have spoken with other parents who have expressed similar experiences.

This is an amazing school community that not only provides a great education but also a strong character.

My child is thriving at the lower school. The school is so warm. My child loves to go to school, and the results show.

This is a wonderful learning environment that any child would be so proud to be a part of. I wish that I could go back in time to my school years and attend Poly Prep today! What a beautiful school it has become w/the additional building.
