Cristo Rey Jesuit High School Reviews

I love the environment. Majority of the students are Hispanic which only unites us to fight for our reputation together. The amount of support is phenomenal! It’s definitely fair to say teachers and the staff as a whole truly care about their students. They all desire success among the students, it’s demonstrated with their flexibility. If for whatever reason the concept isn’t understood there’s always the option of homework center, an area for tutoring available every single day after school. If students are too busy, teachers are willing to go the extra mile and schedule a meeting before school! I love the support system.

This is not like any regular high school. Aside from it being a dual-language Catholic Jesuit school, it is also a college prep school with an amazing work-study program. Students work at sponsor companies to get work experience as well as to help pay for almost 80% of their tuition. This school aims to teach students to be well-rounded individuals that are loving, intelligent, work experienced, committed to justice, and having a strong Catholic faith. It has shaped me into the woman I am today and would recommend this high school experience to everyone.
I liked the Corporate Work Study Program Cristo Rey provides to all students. by this, we are able to practice what it will be like to work and the balance between school and work. I love the staff- everyone is very welcoming and friendly to the point where i feel like if i am at home with my family. I believe every teacher gives their best and takes time after or before school to tutor, review an essay, help with projects, etc. The school sends text messages to our parents so they can be up to date with news and events. Overall, my experience at Cristo Rey was amazing and i would highly recommend students to go here.
