Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School help students to accomplish their goal of attending college. This school, also support students academically and treat students like young adults to prepare them for college. Also, the corpate work study program makes Don Bosco unique because it gives the chance for students to experience the life of a college student by working and studying at the same time. Moreover, the corporate work study program also helps students identify what major they are interested in or what’s a profession they will like to work more in. Something that the school should change is giving more opportunities to take advance classes for college credits and more sports.

The mission is reduced to "some events". Christian values are not reinforced on the student life. Students have serious behavior deficiencies that are not treated but ignored. The reality of the academic chaos is obvious, but everybody stays quiet due to fear. The administration try desperately to keep a good image before parents, society, benefactors and religious organizations promoting "The student-worker" system but they are only concerned to maintain their good salaries. Students knows that most of their beloved teachers run from the school, but the administrationy pretends that that the school is OK.
Don Bosco Cristo Rey is a college preparatory High School that strives for all their students to be accepted into college. One of the most important features of Don Bosco Cristo Rey is their Corporate Work Study program. Students are able to gain experience in the work force once a week. Another important aspect of Don Bosco Cristo is the staff, who show great desire and care for every student. No student is left behind, and every student is accounted for. Don Bosco Cristo Rey also has a great culture where traditional events take place every year, such as Don Bosco week, seniors versus staff, and events that have recently become tradition, like the futsal tournament. One thing I would like to change in Don Bosco Cristo Rey is for more emphasis to be given to each sport and for Don Bosco Cristo Rey to not just be a school for the scholars, but also for the athletes. Due to my interactions with the staff and students, I will be able to have a smooth transition to life in college.
