Hello, I am a Bay Ridge Prep student. I have been a BRP student since the seventh grade, and I am graduating this June, and all I can say is, I could not imagine a worse high school experience. My parents have paid $12,000 (I have a half scholarship) each year for me to be miserable and anxious every day. The school is small, but it's too small, I almost feel trapped. There is not enough space for the 190 students in the high school I feel very uncomfortable. Next there are the teachers, most of which, I like, but certain ones tend to have a lot of favoritism. This favoritism is very evident, and I'm not the only one who has mentioned it. I'm doing well academically, but I do not study one bit or try that hard and I have maintained a 3.7 GPA, so it's not challenging if that's what you're looking for. And as for the students, maybe it's just me, but there is always so much drama, because the majority of the students there have never been to another school and they have the maturity of a Kindergartner, I'm not even exaggerating. This school is pathetic, and I regret not transferring to another school, thank God I'm leaving in a month!
