60 Parent Reviews for St. Francis Preparatory School
So you see. I am a prep student. So far, it has been one of the greatest decisions I've made so far in my life, going to prep. The teachers are simply amazing. The staff and faculty and administration are like our parents. They help you when you need help, and not to mention, some of the young male teachers
... Read more at this school aren't that bad looking.. ;) Anyways, it gets me pretty upset when "parents" make bad reviews about SFP. What do they know? Are they the ones going to school here? Of course they aren't. Sometimes, I don't think others that have never been to SFP understand how happy the alumni and current seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshmen are because of St. Francis Prep. Okay? Please stop saying that schools like Molloy or Holy Cross or TMLA or etc. are better than St. Francis Prep. But to us, the St. Francis Preparatory Terriers, SFP will ALWAYS be the best in our eyes. Once a terrier, always a terrier. Read less

My daughter is a student there and absolutely loves the school. Great teachers and great kids. I am also an alumni and had a wonderful experience as well. I am surprised to see the negative remarks. It is a very large school, but she feels like part of a family. Our experiences have been wonderful.

Living on a reputation from 20 years ago. The education is horrible. The people are rude. The teachers are terrible and don't know anything about the subjects they are teaching. Do yourself a favor, go to Molloy.

My wife and both graduated from prep and now we have a son who goes there. So far, it's 3 for 3 in terms of loving the school and we hope our daughter will soon make it 4 for 4. We also each have two siblings who attended the school, all of whom loved it. Here's what it comes down to--there is not

Other schools may have one or the other, but not both. I will say this--if you are not interested in sticking around a few days a week after school for some sort of club, sport or other activity, it's probably not the place for you. Read less

I went here for a little bit and hated it. The school is way too big and so stereotypical. Jocks and cheerleaders have their own tables at the cafeteria and are the "cool kids." You definitely don't feel like you're apart of the school unless you're on a sports team which is stupid.

I'm a senior here right now. I honestly LOVE it here, but this school is definitely NOT for everybody.

What an outstanding Academic School. Prep is by far the best experience and High School Student can have. Work hard, play hard! Everyone feels like it's a second home. My children have long graduated from Prep and went on to very selective colleges. Prep prepared them for the REAL WORLD! God Bless
