Belen Jesuit Prep School Reviews

I absolutely love my school. Belen Jesuit has formed me to be the man I am today. The teachers foster a great learning environment, and the academic curriculum is rich, but very challenging. All the staff, including counselors, are always ready to help in any way possible. The spiritual assistance and formation is strong, but you need to look for it. The resources that Belen offers is unmatched. Connections to Alumni, top notch college counseling, and an extensive library are only a few resources that Belen offers. The school culture is strong and makes you feel part of a family, evident in the annual tómbola festival. The discipline is very strong too, but it becomes more expected and less strict as you get older.

To be completely honest... while you're in the middle of the school year and you're getting thrashed around by seemingly endless assignments, you will wish you didn't go to Belen. Although, this is a temporary feeling. When you aren't working on projects or assignments, which is not very often, and you sit back to think about it. You really begin to appreciate the environment you are in. From something so minuscule as watching alumni come to eat a lunch, to grade wide assemblies where we are introduced to alumni who have made massive impacts on various industries, it becomes very apparent how much of an impact Belen has on it's former students. That is what I would say is the driving factor for most Belen students - at least from my experience. The knowledge of the fact that the bonds we make while within the walls of Belen will last a forever and the fact that so many Belen alumni have become extremely successful keeps us motivated to perform as best we can to continue the legacy.
Overall, Belen Jesuit Prep School is a very academically strong school. The classes definitely push everyone to their limits, and the teachers usually do a good job at teaching their subjects. There are many clubs so everyone can be involved in something. The culture is all about brotherhood and our dedication to religion solidifies that. However, I rarely ever feel like I am in a brotherhood. Like every school, there are cliques that do not get along and Belen does not do a very good job in my opinion of helping with that. Belen’s academics and extracurricular activities are spectacular, but if there is something that needs improvement it’s the culture.
