My daughter has been in the school since Kindergarten and she is now in the 2nd grade with a great teacher this year. The concept of girls prep and the empowerment they seek to provide young girls to excel and pursue a college education is great however their execution leaves something to be desired. There are major inconsistencies in the quality of education provided by the teachers (her first grade teachers weren't great) and the enrichment programs are slim. There are no organized sports for the girls to learn, music is in the form of choir style singing instead of music theory or instruction and no foreign languages are taught. There is little to no social development as there is a major lack of family engaging events/activities. In an all girls school, the possibilities are endless in terms of what you could do to enrich the scholars and family experiences with the school such a dances, bake sales, teams (volleyball, basketball, soccer), etc. There is no Parent Teacher Association (called Community Council at Girls Prep) and it is my understanding that in the past, the school has not worked well with the PTA to plan events. Good colleges look for students to be well rounded scholars who are more than just book smart, they look for community involvement, social engagement, and enriched experiences . Girls Prep attempts but fails at providing a well rounded foundation for our girls.

the school serves students of different learning abilities, and never turns away scholars because of learning differences.

Develops character: Strongly agree

The school strongly believes in its four core values of scholarship, merit, sisterhood, and responsibility. Character development is equally important as academic achievement.
