Jesuit High School Reviews

While very strong academically, the environment of this school does not promote creativity or self-expression. Jesuit lacks diversity among its faculty and students. Individuality is rarely embraced and it can be very hard to express yourself. The poll stating that this school contains many "artsy" students is false. Jesuit is a very staunchly conservative school, so it can be hard to find like-minded individuals if you have opposing viewpoints. In many aspects, Jesuit is stuck in the past, that trades student liberties in the name of discipline.

I liked how the school focused on academics, discipline, and preparing their students for college. Jesuit prepares those enrolled for college better than any other school in the state of Louisiana. The school doesn't produce 30+ national merit semi-finalists each year out of sure luck. However, sometimes the discipline aspect can go too far and lead to exaggerated and unnecessary rules that are enforced unfairly or without good reason. Overall, I'd recommend any parent within the greater New Orleans area to send their son to Jesuit High School.
I graduated Jesuit in 2018 and currently attend Auburn University. I spent 4 years at Jesuit joining as an incoming 9th grader. Jesuit offers classes like Leadership 101 which helps new 9th graders get used to high school and catch up to the students who came in as prefreshman. My first year was a success. The teachers cared and took time to know each student. I joined other extracurriculars like the MCJROTC program which has prepared me not only with leadership skills, but also common sense and readiness. Other clubs I joined included the chess club and a diversity group:St. Peter Claver Club. In college, I have made high A's on many of my English research papers. This school has taught me common skills, college skills, and a spiritual openness to all.
