Fort Lauderdale Prep School Reviews
Disservice to our community
This school is owned and operated by a family who is completely out of touch with their student population. They do not provide the services they claim to. There was not even an ESE teacher on staff for the elementary and Middle School students while I was was employed there. MY special needs students did not receive the pull out sessions promised them nor did they meet with a specialist at any time during the year. Admin forced me to pass a failing student because they did not want him in the same classroom again and I was forced to lower grades throughout the year for several students who performed well but posed behavior problems for administration.
The owners/Administrators are spiteful and rude, bordering on verbally abusive to staff and students alike.
Do your homework before sending your child to this school. Don't be fooled by the pretty framed accreditation certificates on the wall.
As a parent of a daughter who attended FLP I recommend this school for the impressive staff support that each student receives, the curriculum, and the perspective that the students success is the best reflection of the school. The active participation of the principal and support staff in my daughter's education complemented the strong teaching faculty. FLP exemplifies the benefits and goals of a private school.
Normally I would not to write on-line about something but I am so thrilled with the education my child is getting at Ft. Lauderdale Prep School that I had to say something. My daughter was having a tough time in our neighborhood school and just could not get her grades up. No one was able to motivate her. She did good in grade school but middle school was overwhelming her and she could not keep up with the other kids. Unfortunately the teachers were not overly helpful. She was not enjoying school at all so at the suggestion of my neighbor we moved her to FPS where they promised they could help. And they did. My daughter is working real hard and getting good grades. She likes school again and she talks about her teachers all the time and has made a bunch of new friends. I am very grateful to Miss Lonstein and all the good people at FPS for their dedication to the kids and for teaching my daughter how to enjoy learning again. Thank you!
