My experience at St. Francis Preparatory School has been a wonderful experience throughout my 4 years of high school. This private institution prepares it's students for college. They also have great resources for their student to use and the opportunities here are endless. The school is very diverse and there are many activities to choose from . St. Francis Preparatory School is still improving ever since I entered from freshman year. The Prep has well built music rooms that I have enjoyed using and the hallways have been redone. Even some of their bathrooms have been redone. The prep also has an amazing physical education facility. Send your children here because high school is for 4 years, but the Prep is for life !

St. Francis Preparatory may be the largest Catholic high school in the country, but somehow I feel perfectly at home. I look forward to going to school everyday, knowing that I get the opportunity to receive endless support from my teachers who want to see me succeed and reach my full potential. Reflecting on my past three years here, I am also so happy that I took the chance to participate in activities such as Student Government and the drama society. I feel fully prepared for college and I owe that to the hard work of my terrific teachers.

It's one of the best experiences I had and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Although, there were some ups and downs, the school and people around me, made me grow to who I am today. I can't wait to come back to visit once i graduate!
