Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
The teachers are simply amazing. There are not enough words to describe them and the impact they have had on our family as a whole.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
We have no arguments about homework like we did in our previous school where it was either piled on without regard for other classes or activities or where it was so tedious and pointless. The BRP homework can be challenging but it is actually useful and relevant.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a parent
BRP has taught my daughter to be honest with me about everything and also be open and fair to new ideas and new people.



- a parent
Such an amazing school, love the teachers and love that my child is learning and genuinely enjoying going to high school.

Amazing teachers and such lovely people throughout the building who all care the students as if they were their own children. I attended Catholic schools growing up and so did my husband and our son, in our minds, was destined to continue on the same path. We kept hearing about Bay Ridge Prep from family friends who attended. Finally, we checked it out and were so impressed. Our son is now in 10th grade and thriving. Whenever people ask us about BRP, my husband says it best - "I wish I went to Bay Ridge Prep."

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a community member
There are a handful of effective teachers, but the vast majority are beyond unacceptable. This place will not change until the principal retires and the negligent incompetence at the top changes.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a community member
There are very few (3) teachers who effectively teach the class and are truely good at their job. There are teachers who dont even legally qualify as teachers.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a community member
Barely anything is given for homework and if there is any given it is as if a 12th grader is doing 8th grade work.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a community member
The teachers pick their favorites out of those who donate the most money to the school and give them free rides
