- This is Poly
"The mind that opens to a new idea never returns to its original size."- Albert Einstein
From Nursery to Grade 12, Poly Prep is where curiosity and collaboration shift perspectives and open minds.
Each day at Poly is filled with engaging classes and experiences that will expand your child’s intellect, nurture a love of the arts, develop problem-solving skills, and build a sense of community and teamwork.
Our whole-child educational philosophy derives from our commitment to diversity — of individuals, viewpoints, experiences — and the intellectual and moral excellence that it generates.
Our mission is to educate individuals who are distinguished by intellectual and moral courage and give them the tools and resources to become agents of change in their communities, our country, and the world.
At Poly, education is a joyful act of creation that inspires students and teachers alike to pursue excellence — their own and others'.

“What I like best about Poly cannot be limited down to a single simple word or phrase.”

“The highlight of my teaching career is having alumni return to tell me that seeds for their love of speaking other languages were originally planted in my classroom and that they travel throughout the world using their language skills beyond the walls of a classroom.”

“There are so many good people around and there is always someone you can ask for help when you need it.”
Poly’s teachers are lifelong learners who model for our students the joys, challenges, and rewards of intellectual growth. Their love of learning is a bedrock of the strong relationships they forge with students.
This is why current and former students alike often note that the teachers at Poly not only challenge them inside the classroom but emboldened them to pursue their passions outside of it as well.Meet Our Faculty
