Poly Prep Lower School 1

Posted April 13, 2015

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.

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.
