Peter “PJ” Pothier is a 15 and a half year old tenth grader at Learning Prep. PJ joined our school community during the Summer of 2021 after attending the Wolf School in Rhode Island for middle school. PJ travels from his hometown of Pembroke to West Newton every day. In the classroom at LPS, he is focused, hard-working, and conscientious
PJ is not just a great student - he is also a student athlete. When PJ was 11, he ran his first 5K in Scituate, and a love of competitive running was born. Since that time, PJ has been a member of the Wolf School Cross Country team, and this year, he joined the Pembroke High School Cross Country team.
Joey Murphy is a 14 and a half year old 9th grader at Learning Prep who recently joined our school community in January of 2022. Joey travels from his hometown of Hudson to West Newton every day, but he doesn’t mind the commute, because, as he put it: “I’m in the right school that’s going to help me read better and help me with my dyslexia better than my public school did.” One of Joey’s passions is his involvement in the Boy Scouts. Joey entered the Boy Scouts when he was in the 7th grade and instantly felt he “had joined a family” that was passionate about the same things that he holds dear to his heart; being in nature, respecting wildlife, and being part of a community that represents a cause and mission that “is bigger than me.”
Joey currently holds the rank of Tenderfoot in Local Troop 2 out of Hudson, MA. His goal is to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, which is the highest attainable rank in the Boy Scouts of America. Since their inception in 1911, only four percent of Boy Scouts have earned this rank after a lengthy review process. The Eagle Scout rank has been earned by over 2.5 million youth - Joey intends to be one of them.

"Until this year, I had no idea what my senior year or post-high school future would look like. As each year went by at LPS, I gained more confidence in myself through getting my own job, planning for college, and pushing myself in my classes..."
While the school is embracing diversity and inclusion, Food Service is planning to have International Thursdays in April. Countries featured will be Mozambique, Ethiopia, India, and Poland.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) initiatives are an ongoing process at Learning Prep. Our goals are to become a community that celebrates diversity, promotes equity, is inclusive for all our families and students, and promotes justice. Earlier this school year, parents/guardians were invited to complete a survey for Learning Prep to begin gathering data about DEIJ.
We are thrilled to announce our first in-person parent event in 2 years! Please join us on Thursday, April 28th from 6:00-7:45 PM for an opportunity for parents and guardians to hear about your student's classes, tour the school and meet their teachers.
