Christian Brothers High School Reviews

Christian Brothers High School is a wonderful college prep school. The school offers many different classes such as theatre, psychology, engineering, ceramics, etc. I have recently taken a Women’s literature class that has expanded my knowledge on how women where expected to act in the victorian age(in America), the treatment of mental health, and much more. I attended a Kairos retreat, with group of other seniors and we grew together through learning about each other we wouldn’t have anywhere else. Teachers are open to have their students ask as many questions needed to understand the material.

Christian Brothers focused on the idea of the school as one's family away from home. This allowed for more dialogue between students and teachers, more parent involvement in their children's high school community, and a greater sense of belonging among students. However, for minority students, Christian Brothers sometimes seemed like a place of isolation. Most of the students come from the same white, upper-middle class background and even students of color from that same financial background can be ostracized by other students at times.
As a senior I have seen ups and downs in my school. With switching principals recently the school has been able to grow and advance in ways I could only realize in retrospect. The teachers care about their students - not only academically - but also emotionally and spiritually. Though it is a Catholic school, Catholicism is not forced upon students, even with theology classes. Everyone has a say in what they believe and it is a safe space to discuss things of controversy. CB’s motto is “Enter to learn, leave to serve” and the Lasallian tradition is definitely lived in its students. While being in somewhat of a “sketchy neighborhood,” CB embraces the community around it, constantly doing service for residents, and specifically children, in the neighborhood, and I have never felt unsafe. This school is progressive, challenging, and truly teaches the basics of an inclusive community.
