27 Parent Reviews for Shorecrest Preparatory School

I lived in Feather Sound and was referred to Shorecrest by the community as being the best school in town. My children began at 3 and 4 years old. They are now in 10th and 11th grade and beginning to look for colleges. I can truly say that they have prepared my children both academically and social/emotionally ...  Read more

Now that we are moving out of Tampa Bay and having had to find a school for the children (ages 5 and 8) in a different part of the state, we can say that Shorecrest Early Childhood and Lower Division did a terrific job preparing both kids academically and socially. Terrific leadership, challenging academic ...  Read more

Having moved here from another state and attended public school there, we find Shorecrest average at best and certainly not worth the big tuition required. It is extremely hard to mainstream in if your child begins after lower division as kids and parents have been together and formed relationships ...  Read more

I have been highly disappointed with this school and can now compare what a dedicated and loving environment is about in the current school my children attend. The excellence that they promote is only related to fundraising. The lack of interest on the child as a whole is shocking. The school is all ...  Read more

I attended this school from K-12 and must say that this is an excellent school compared to others in the area. On several occasions "A" students from other schools transferred and found that it isn't easy to earn an "A" at Shorecrest. I have gone on to get undergrad and graduate school, and hands down, ...  Read more

I can only give this school and average mark for the following reasons: the teachers are not there because they want to be. They are obviously heavily influenced by the wealthy parents. This is not a school I will allow my student to attend any longer. The richest 1% of the nation truly does dictate ...  Read more

Not sure where the comment about teachers lacking passion came from in a previous comment. I've been very impressed with the faculty at Shorecrest and consider them the reason to send my kids to school there. While no school is perfect, I know that my two kids are challenged and supported by a caring ...  Read more

She is is faced with healthy challenges every day and has grown astronomically since entering the school. The parent support network is fantastic ...  Read more
