Belen Jesuit Prep School Reviews

83 reviews

My expectations of Belen were wanted as year upon year I had a mediocre set of teachers who failed to deliver on the school’s promise of ‘excellence’. While the admissions process is relatively selective—there is an entrance exam and a limited number of spots available—the student body remains for the most part mediocre and underachieving. They are pushed only by their highly successful parents to achieve acceptable results, relying on the future asset of a huge alumni network numbering in the dozens of thousands. If any student is thinking of coming to this school to achieve excellent academic results and more importantly learn as much as they possibly can, I recommend a different preparatory school that has a similar and supportive student body.

Belen Jesuit is a good school education wise. That is about the only positive thing. The administration is horribly corrupt and favors those who have money. If you cannot afford the school do not bother attending this school. The administration treats those with financial aid as less than equals and makes them feel guilty about not being able to financially afford the school. It calls itself a “Jesuit” school that lives out catholic teachings, but that is false. It is very uncatholic to treat people as lesser than others, especially because of their financial status. They do not care if families try their hardest to earn the little they can to pay the school. All they want is the money, and that is not very catholic of them. Even the priests in the school favor those with money, and it is easily visible throughout the campus and school events. Overall, I would not choose Belen as a place to send my son and sadly I had to learn the hard way.
I go to Belen but after going there for 3 years now, it is getting a bit more boring and we don't do many activities. I am very interested in science, mainly medicine, but Belen forces you to only do Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Sadly, we have no other choices. The only way I can experience what I want to do is by clubs but it would be a lot better to learn about this stuff now and get to know medicine better as a high schooler than as a college student because you can change your course for no pay during high school. Another thing I feel that makes Belen unique and different to other high schools is how strict they are. Belen makes you have an even and short haircut, your ID and belt every day, and your Penny-loafers every day. If you do not have any of the listed things, you will get a detention and they are not very fun. Belen seems like the big dream middle/high school but turns out it is like every other one.
