I like that Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School involves all the students and parents in community activities. I also, like that Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School doesn't exclude students based on their race or religion. I also, like that Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School has revision retreats for their students to get to know one another and become friends. Finally, I like that no one is treated differently were all treat the same and that our teachers and principle motivate us to do better and helps us when needed they also tell us they love us to keep us motivated. I would like to see the food change the food is ok but it is not always good.

I am a senior who transferred into my school in 10th grade. Honestly, the transition was a little challenging because I came from a subpar school. The academics at "CR" are excellent. The teachers are great, they really care about the students and want them to succeed. The Principal is AMAZING. The whole schools' atmosphere is really open and gives a sense on Family. Everyone who walks into the doors is automatically considered a part of the CR family. And that's why I love it. The only downsides to my school is that, because it is new, we are still constantly going through changes and being "guinea pigs" whenever management wants to try something new. We don't have that many sports and we don't have our new building. Although, our new building is in the process of being made. It will of course be way better than our campus now. Unfortunately, I will not get the privilege to go to school at our new building because I am graduating. I’m just glad I got to call this place Home.
I appreciated the work study opportunity that cristo rey offers. My school provides each student with internships across the city and some even outside of the Philadelphia county. Working at companies like Comcast, FMC, TD Bank, CVS and many more, students are able to not only gain communication skills but work with different departments in order to get a taste of the real work world. These jobs are also how we pay our tuition but not through a paycheck or nothing. The money goes straight towards our tuition in which is why we must fulfill a certain quota per year in terms of our work study jobs.
