Jesuit High School Reviews

I came to this private Catholic school in Mid-City New Orleans when i was a freshman. Jesuit High School built a base for my academic and spiritual development. The faculty and curriculum is very challenging, and it pushes the students to work hard and learn constantly. The spiritual life is very strong at Jesuit, with masses and Christianity classes for all grade levels. I myself am not Catholic or even Christian, but I found the religion classes eye-opening. I learned more about Catholicism, informed other people about my beliefs, and strengthened my own faith. This is a great school, and I recommend going to Jesuit High School. It is by far the best high school in the New Orleans area and in Louisiana!

My experience with Jesuit was amazing. It was everything I hoped for and dreamed of in terms of quality of education. I would recommend it to anyone, but you have to know what you are getting into as a student. If you take hard classes, be prepared for INTENSE workloads. Homework is inconsistent. Some nights nothing, but more often it's like 3-4 hours per night. If you take challenging classes, put in the work, and really apply yourself; this school provides opportunities that no other in New Orleans can. The superior level of education that Jesuit provides is undeniable. For example, this year Jesuit had 35 National Merit Semifinalists (people who placed in the top 1% of students in the country on a nationally administered standardized test in Junior year.) Brother Martin, a rival high school that is widely considered about equal to Jesuit academically, only had 2.
Throughout my five years at Jesuit High School, I have been a member of the MCJROTC. Over the years, I have evolved from a regular 8th grade cadet to becoming a full-fledged leader. In tandem with the teachings of Jesuit and my ROTC unit, I am on my way to becoming a "Man For Others." I fulfill this mantra as I command my cadets and instruct my rifle team cadets.
Through my association with Sodality, I deepen my own faith as I share insights with fellow classmates. It is through memberships in various extra-curricular activities, as well as the education I have received at JHS that I know I will become a successful and well-rounded person.
