The science atmosphere at Pretty River is the richest among all other schools. It provided me with a good understanding of what I am now learning at university. Science fairs and AP courses help a lot to lay a foundation in science studies. The science and math courses at PRA are perfect!

“The education offered by Pretty River Academy is peerless. Teachers have the willingness to spend any amount of time perfecting our mastery of knowledge. In this school, we students are encouraged to explore based on what we have learnt. That’s why, I think, many students from PRA could procure a spot in both national science fair and math competition, and, eventually, excel in their University.”
It was not until I met one of the teachers, Mr. Mac, that I realized what altruism is. Mr. Mac taught me “how great I am” which is something I would never have known if I had chosen to stay in the Chinese high school. Never have I been as confident as I am today.
Maosen Xu’s parents write:
Thank you so much for teaching our son. We, as parents, were worrying about it, when he made the decision to leave China and study abroad alone at age of 17.
Now, we feel settled because of the painstaking work that you have done for teaching him.

“Pretty River Academy’s high-school math and science program can be more challenging than others, as they will encourage you to take part in various math competitions and science fairs, as well as preparing you for university level courses if you wish (AP Maths and Physics). They also have the most dedicated and passionate Math and Science teachers I’ve ever known.
So, if you are interested in studying math and science, and desire to have fun, happiness and challenges, PRA is the right place for you!”

I feel really lucky that I took AP Calculus AB and BC in PRA, so I can get ready to thrive in my first year at University while the others are suffering in calculus.
It also allows me to start on harder courses. Right now, I’m studying vector calculus, which is designed to be a course for a sophomore.
Take the math, physics, or computer science classes in Pretty River Academy.
The math teacher is the most responsible and nicest science teacher I have ever met.He will tutor you if you do not understand anything, give you interesting creative projects, and make jokes to activate you in class.All of this will make you stronger, and help you cope with the challenges you may face in your future.

The staff are extremely attentive to helping individual students succeed at PRA. There was hardly a day that some teacher was not holding a help session after school. Math classes in PRA are always where I had the most fun. Knowledge and happiness can both be acquired in this class. Memories of his class still come to my mind very often.
