    My son graduated in the top 10% of his class and has gone on to well known college. Prep Charter prepared him college and I must say his first semester went very well thanks to Prep!

    Do not go to this school if you expect to enter a competitive career field in the future. This school does not offer ANY advance placement (AP) courses and it does not offer electives either. Every single student follows the same curriculum so there is no distinguishing the best from the worst. The school itself is a friendly work-orientated all around but it just is not rigorous enough. This is coming from a student who graduated from the top 5% and have plans to enter the medical field.

    I am a proud parent of a prep charter student and I have always felt it takes a village to rise a child and prep charter is my extended village. The support they give their students is outstanding. I would and have recommend this school to everyone.

    Prep is a great school with great teachers. I had graduated from Prep with a lot of help from the teachers. There is no way to fail unless you don't look for help and don't do your work. They could have a few other classes such as economics and higher math and english classes. Overall this school is great.

    i LOVE PREP CHARTER! prep charter is a good school it helps me alot with all my work and the teachers really care about my school work. I like Prep the most because they done set you up to fail the only way you will fail in Prep Charter is if you dont do your work. Other than that its an awesome school. its like a BIG and Happy family!

    This school is really easy however some kids still manage to fail. If you send your child here they will do fine or even exceptionally well if they put in the effort. Prep Charter will give your child a free high school education but in terms of getting them ready for college its curriculum fails to introduce any type of needed difficulty or discipline required for your child to excel at the college level. Then again Prep Charter is my alumni and I am doing quite well in college after a couple of rough semesters. Another big problem is the recruiting procedure any student can get in if they 'get picked in the drawing.' The issue with this is that students with higher intelligence are constantly being held back by the students that think education is a joke. If you still think you want to send you child here thats fine.

    This school is hard. My classmates tell me the same when they were in elementary school they get A's and B's. In this school expect your child to get C's and D's and the teachers hand out zero's like it's a normal thing. I like this school because of the students. All of them are respectable and no fights (or at least physical fights). Other than that they won't ask me back to this school. I know it.

    Prep Charter by far is exceeding my expectations! My daughter is a freshman this year and I'm very pleased with the quality of education she is receiving. The teachers think 'outside of the box' and make learning fun! Prep is preparing my daughter for college. Great School. I recommend Prep to any parent who is looking for a school which will prepare their children for college. Parents would be very happy sending their children here!

    Prep Charter is one of the best schools in all of Philadelphia...Mrs. Gabris is very involved with each of the students and all of the teachers are extrodinary! Any parent would be lucky to send their child there!
