Jesuit HS is not a school, it is an outstanding environment where my daughter thrived and roundly developed over the last 3.5 years. My work colleague, a Jesuit alumni highly recommended JHS, and we applied. My child has excellent academic results thanks to a combination between her work, teacher's ability to adapt their teaching style to the student, and the learning environment. The school culture is one of inclusion, flexibility and firmness packaged into an complex amalgam which allows the teenagers to amazingly develop within some guidelines - and only a teen parent knows how difficult is to do so... well, Jesuit does this successfully for 1,200+ children! You can find a sport or a club for any passion as they vary from ukulele and drama to swimming or cross country... Last, we are not catholic and English is our second language, but we felt home at JHS, and we are proud to be part of the JHS community. I hope that my other child (she is 10) will also become a JHS student.

Jesuit High School has been a great experience for my two children (neither of whom are athletes--they participate in the arts program, though). The academics have been challenging but not overwhelming. Expectations are high, but there are opportunities to improve and to learn from/recover from missteps and mistakes. The emphasis on service helps to build community and teach my children the importance of selfless and meaningful work on behalf of others. My wife and I enjoy the parent community. Even though our children attended public school prior to Jesuit, we have always felt welcome and it has been easy to make friends.
While the workload and classes can be pretty tough, the teachers are always there for you. In my experience, teachers are smart and approachable. Jesuit does a good job of promoting community within classes and the school. The friday mass is my favorite part of the week. I really enjoy playing sports like softball and swimming. There are many different ways to get involved in school activities outside of sports, including ambassador opportunities, retreats, setons and knights (faith groups for women and men), clubs, and student government. I personally love going to Jesuit.
