Detroit Cristo Rey High School Reviews

Cristo Rey does an excellent job of preparing students for what the college level education feels like. The school community does an outstanding job of including everyone in friend groups and activities. Although Cristo Rey is great at providing a unique education, they lack the selection as well as a variety of AP and Honor classes. Universities observe higher education classes very closely which is why it is important for students to have the choice of several options to choose from. At this very moment, the school offers two AP classes, which only accepts 20 students out of a whole grade level.

My experience at Cristo Rey has been wonderful. I have been blessed enough to have stumbled upon a school who truly cares about their students. Here you become a family with all of your classmates because of how all the classes are. You also get much more attention from teachers which I helpful when you are struggling in a certain class. Here we are taught discipline and how to manage many different things all at once. This is thanks to our Corporate Work Study Program in which the school sends kids to different companies to gain experience for future jobs. I am very grateful for all the school has done for me, and I encourage others student who are entering high school to strongly consider Detroit Cristo Rey High School.
The school that works! That's right, every student enrolled at this private catholic high-school has the chance to experience real-life work through the Corporate Work Study Program. Because of this, I get to work at PNC Bank once a week. This will be my fourth year as an intern at PNC Bank. I am really grateful to be part of this company. My internship with this company covers part of my tuition. The teachers in this school has that love for students. They encourage us to improve and do our best. They are there when we need them in academic work and in other issues. Detroit Cristo Rey is more like a family, because we are taught to love each other.
