20 Parent Reviews for Northridge Preparatory School

A recent graduate of Northridge Prep, I still consider myself to be a Northridge man. When I was looking for a high school, its academics were key. Northridge routinely sends students to stellar colleges including Stanford, Notre Dame, Northwestern, U of C, and Illinois. Importantly, service is also ...  Read more

I'm a parent of a 10th grade student at Northridge. I feel so fortunate to be apart of this community. Northridge has not only fostered my son in his academics but also as young man looking to the future. I have two older children who attended other middle and high schools. Their experience was not ...  Read more

My oldest son is a sophomore at Northridge and had attended since 6th grade.During that time, we have seen administration move the school forward in positive ways.With the introduction of the "hall system" middle school students mix with high school students for special projects and activities.This breaks ...  Read more

We have two sons at Northridge Prep. I truly believe that by the time they go off to college, they will be ready to meet that responsibility. Mostly, they will be ready because their father and I have done our best to prepare them to be young men of honor and integrity. But I have no doubt that they ...  Read more

Our son is a sophomore at NRP and we have found it to be a very good school. Most of the teachers have been excellent. The families are dedicated to the Catholic faith and to the well-rounded education of their sons. They represent a broad cross section ethnically and economically. General mood at ...  Read more

Northridge Prep is in a class of its own when it comes to an authentic Catholic education! It truly is the ONLY real Catholic High School in town. The single sex education is the best thing you can do for your sons, coupled with an outstanding all male faculty. My sons would not be of the caliber intellectually, ...  Read more

Our son attended Northridge Prep School for 7 years. Today he attends one of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning in the country. My wife and I are convinced this was made possible by the academic preparation he received at Northridge coupled with the school's reputation among college ...  Read more

For a school that supposedly has a reputation for well-behaved and well-educated young men, I tonight saw at an 8th grade basketball game some of the worst behavior and poor sportsmanship I have ever seen. As their maroon team played, their gold team in the stands heckled and catcalled at the opposing ...  Read more

Unfortunately, Northridge Prep really does not live up to it's hype. A number of the excellent veteran teachers have been pushed out and a culture of fun and games (supposedly to build character and leadership) has moved in. Academics seem to be less important than before, and except for sports, other ...  Read more
