Temecula Preparatory School opened in 2000 as a charter school serving students in kindergarten through 12th grades. The school focuses on classical education while centering on reading, writing, phonics, and computation using Western traditions throughout the curriculum. The student body is diverse with 54% White, 14% Hispanic, 5% African American, 3% Asian, 2% Filipino, and 21% unspecified.
Along with core subjects, the school offers summer camp, National Honor Society, National Jr. Honor Society, ASB, Performing Arts, First Robotics Team and Academic Decathlon Team. Sports available are cross country, golf, baseball, volleyball, soccer, basketball, softball, and track & field.
The majority of parents only had positive comments regarding the school, staff, and administration while praising them highly. However, a few parents are concerned that the staff and administration are not respectful of students and do not treat all students equal. Some students expressed they are being challenged while others state the school is more worried if you stick to the strict dress code than helping them with their schoolwork.
The Academic Performance Index increased 9 points to 872. The statewide goal is 800. Parents are pleased with the API score and the fact that they scored 8 out of 10 for the API statewide rank.
The California Standards Tests is used to learn if students are mastering core subjects. The various tests are given to 2nd through 11th grades in English, grades 2nd through 7th are given tests in math, and science tests are administered to students in grades 5th, 8th, and 10th, while history tests are given to students in 8th and 11th grades.
The percentage of students passing the exams met state averages or were above state averages in grades 2nd through 6th grades while 7th through 11th grades were mixed. Examples include 47% of 7th graders passed the math exam with the state average at 52%, 88% of 8th graders passed the science exam with the state at 66%, and 24% of 10th graders passed the chemistry exam with the average at 51%. Parents are not too concerned as they realize these scores can help show where improvements need to be made.
the California High School Exit Exam tests 10th graders mastering skills in English language arts and mathematics. 100% of students passed the English exam with the average at 83% and in math 99% passed with the state average at 84%. Parents were very happy to see these results.
The school is providing students with an exception education. It would still be a good idea to take a tour to ensure the learning environment is best for your child before enrolling.
