Juniors, underclassmen, and incoming freshmen, feel free to use this “Best of Prep” guide. Seniors, go ahead and agree or disagree with your classmates’ opinions. Teachers, take pride in (maybe) having a climate-controlled classroom! Or in knowing that seniors still find your classroom comfortable even with problematic heating and cooling systems! In the end, I hope this list can remind us all of our favorite bits of Prep as the school year concludes!
