45 Parent Reviews for Tempe Preparatory Academy

I am very happy with my decision to bring my child to Tempe Prep. The teachers care. They want to see your child succeed and do NOT accept anything less than their personal best. My child came to the school as an 8th grader behind in math. Her math teacher has gone far above to help. She took the time ...  Read more

I graduated from Tempe Prep in 2012, and this school has prepared me very well for college. I was initially worried because a lot of my college classmates came in with a lot of AP credits and were almost a year ahead of me in school, but I have found that the foundation Tempe Prep provided me with has ...  Read more

Tempe Preparatory Academy is an excellent school when it comes to curriculum as well as student/teacher ratios. However, BEWARE (the faculty) teachers as well as dean of students are extremely prejudiced against minorities. Although, TPA is considered a grade "A" school. It may not be the best academic ...  Read more

Tempe Prep has bent over backwards to help my student. He has received tutoring from the teachers, as needed. The teachers really care, and put so much effort into making the academic experience top notch. I highly recommend Tempe Prep.

I have been part of TPA for the past 7 yrs. Although I still believe the education here is still better than public schools, I'm very disappointed in watching the decline. They have definitely lowered their standards in not only academics, but in student conduct as well. My youngest child has been encouraged ...  Read more

While no environment is perfect, TPA has a dynamic that few other places posess. For the most part, in most instances, a partnership is formed between the parents, the students and the staff and faculty. Also, there is comraderie among each of these groups. Parent groups, student groups and the faculty ...  Read more

I know now why anyone who values education would want to take part in TPAs lottery. It is an outstanding school in terms of teachers, mission, commitment to excellence. Even with the limited budgets all schools face, TPA is about excellence and the striving for the full person to be greater than he ...  Read more

Tempe Preparatory Academy has been through a difficult transitional period, with three different headmasters in the last 4 years. In that period, the education offered at the school has declined. In the past, students had to write a research paper each year as part of an annual project week that took ...  Read more
