    Overall Experience: Don Bosco Prep is one of the best private schools in the Tri-State Area. The camaraderie and education is second to none. They offer a wide variety of athletics including Crew and Fencing. The Football and Baseball teams compete on a national level. The school spirit can rival that of a college. The campus setting is beautiful.
