The school is not honest about anything. They lie about everything. The school is great in teaching and yes your kids will be smarter then most kids but with the great things their is a price to pay. You will have to deal with many issues at the school if your a very involved parent like myself. You will have to here lies and cover ups. You will have to prepare your wallets to get ripped of by the school forcing you to buy cheap uniforms when their are competitors or even a parent selling better quality long lasting more comfortable uniforms at half the price. You will never get the school to listen to you. It's their way or no way.
My daughter started it irks prep les in October of this year and at first she was having a hard time because the work is a whole lot different from her previous school, but with the help of the teachers she is doing a lot better. They would assess her to see what level she is on. I mean even though she is a bright kid, this is a totally new world for her. I made sure that every school she attended is great academically, so she is advance in public school but behind in Charter school. That's because the curriculum is amazingly different and well advance. Reminds me of schools in the Caribbean island. Parent involvement is a plus and this school does not lack it at all. I love love love girls prep les. I will recommend it any day. The only thing that I don't like is the fact that if I want to transfer my daughter to another Girls Prep school I have to go back through the lottery even though she is already in their system. Since her name was not pick in the lottery, she is now on a long everlasting waiting list.
I am rolled my daughter to the girls prep in the Bronx and I have nothing but high praise for them because of the small enrollments every kid is given every and when I say every faculty teacher administrators alike the young ladies receive full attention to their education and care . As parents we are given constant updates constant face-to-face time about our child's progress or regress . It feels like a small-town oasis in the middle of the big gritty city.
"Look at the test scores" please bare in mind that Common Core testing was put in effect in 2013 which made the test much more harder, and lower percentages of passing is to be expected however Girls Prep still beat out most of New York STATE. Just keep that in mind please :)
I love this school and feel the people who say bad things about it don't know anything about the school at all I do my child goes here and what she learn.Is amazon What she learn and how to work with other is amazon All I have to say is before you say anything bad about this School you need to learn about it first before you say anything!!!
A place where our daughters are not only taught academically but they are also taught the core values of scholarship, merit, community, and responsibility. Not only are they taught these values they are enforced daily and our daughters carry them with them every day and where where.
