Brooklyn Prep creates a nurturing, Christian learning environment for your child. The academics curriculum is second to none and the students score way above average on any standardize test. However, what I appreciate most about the school is that the learning environment is conducive to each child realizing his/her fullest potential. Self confidence and character building, creativity and a standard for excellence are key components of the program and your child's personality will flourish in this rich, safe, loving home away from home. The teachers and faculty all partner with the parents to create an outstanding effort to bring out the best in each child.

The most awesome experience for the entire family. The administration is very professional and the curriculum is progressive. I wouldn't have ave changed a thing about our time at this wonderful school. My only regret is that it does not go up to 12th grade.

Excellent school! Incredible teachers! My son attending BPS and had an awesome experience. BPS provides a safe, loving evironment where you know your child is cared for. Academically, they are outstanding. I only wished this school went up until the 5th grade. I would highly recommend BPS.

Brooklyn Prep has been a great help with not only the development of my daughter's education but also her mental and emotional wellbeing. They have all been great with helping her overcomes fears as well as helping in introducing new steps and in the world of life. I am very gracious for the kind and dedicated administers and teachers this school has. They are all treasures in every life they touch. They all encourage ways to work together parent and school as a village raising each student and teaching them how to live life accordingly.

Awesome! All my four children went there. When a child is challenge they do everything they can to help that child. All my children love that school. They have great leadership, very high academics, very organized and discipline. They are truly involved with the children and their parents. They love what they do. The academics are very high and the children are very well mannered.

Children ages 4-7 receive a quality education based on Christian principles. Students excel academically because the teachers believe that they can & expect it of them. The students are taught to treat each other with love & respect. Teachers are available to speak with parents on a regular basis outside of scheduled parent teacher conference times. There are many opportunites for parents to be involved in the education of their kids. They are periods of worship and prayer on a regular basis as well. The teachers are particularly adept at recognizing the different skills & talents of their students. The school does not have an on site gym at this time so the studets are bused to a local athletic club twice weekly for activities such as gymnastics & swimming. The teacher/student ratio affords your child attention they would be unlikely to receive in a larger class setting.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
