School Culture

We believe in personal accountability for all of our actions, and we have established a way of life that brings out the very best in each of us. We believe this list describes the school culture. It summarizes the experiences of our students, but really, it’s something you need to see for yourself. Come, take a look at our Mountain View campus and meet our students for yourselves.

High School Culture

We have established these practices as our foundation:

  • Encourage individuality
  • Demand personal accountability
  • Encourage the heart
  • Stimulate the mind
  • Reinforce positive attitudes and behaviors
  • Celebrate personal expression
  • Respect the privacy and boundaries of others
  • Practice compassion
  • Never miss an opportunity for fun
  • Act courageously

We are interested in students as people, and partner with students, teachers, and parents to focus on successes, as well as areas that need improvement. Our students and teachers act according to these practices, turning school into a place of learning, growth, and fun.

Changing Lives, Redefining Education

“We couldn’t be more delighted to find Palo Alto Prep- this school is a haven for children to learn and thrive in. I’ve never before seen a high school like this – one that inspires kids to a level that they want to participate in and attend with enthusiasm. This school has had the best impact on our daughter and our family has been welcomed with warmth and kindness by the administration and faculty, I only wish we had discovered Palo Alto Prep sooner!”
