DeSmet is a very open and innovative school. The entire school, faculty as well as students are accepting of all races, religions, and sexual orientation. DeSmet's mission statement is: "For the Greater Glory of God." That means that we are always putting others before ourselves. Later start times, and longer classes create a less stressful learning environment. With later start times and longer classes, school days are less stressful. Longer class time allows for a more progressive workday. Administration is average, but always improving with the time. Discipline is strict but incredibly fair, allowing students more freedom, but keeping us distinctly different from other high schools. DeSmet recently opened a Innovation Center, offering students a professional and quiet work space they can use whenever. All in all, DeSmet is a school that is consistently improving and does a good job at keeping their students in a fair and mature environment.
My favorite part about De Smet was most definitely the academics. I feel extremely prepared for the university of my choice. Something that I would like to see improve would be the care provided to students struggling emotionally. I have come across many serious struggles in my life, including generalized anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder, and I feel that the counselors here are not what they could be. If I had had better support, then I would have most likely succeeded more academically.
