School Reviews

  • Recommended October 05, 2010 - I'm currently a sophomore at Providence. The teachers are either extremely hard, or easy. There is no middle ground. There are too many people at Providence as well, forcing most kids to eat in the mall, which actually means we eat cramped on the floor. Everyone treats each other like mortal enemies, there are ridiculously high standards, and it's an extremely cliquey school. It's basically a private school, and economically, most students here are from very wealthy families- just count the number of Range Rovers in the parking lot. - Posted by Student/Alumni
