Regis High School Reviews

I think back often to those incredible four years of my life spent at Regis. Its greatest strength is its faculty. We were encouraged to seek out guidance and help if we needed it and they were always available. Regis gave us a tremendous amount of freedom to discover New York and ourselves. We took full advantage of Manhattan and all that it had to offer. There is a sense of brotherhood that stays with you and that bond can never be broken. Regis also provided Science and computer facilities that were better than those at many colleges. Ultimately though what made it special was the people. Both faculty and students came together and there was a real sense of community and belonging. Years later the memories are still fresh, the lessons still applied, and the confidence I gained there has served me very well. I would urge any young man who is accepted there to attend. I can promise you that it will be the most incredible four years of your life.

My experience at Regis has been nothing short of fantastic. The community could not be kinder, more generous, or more engaging. The classes are difficult, yet fascinating and rewarding. The teachers are, to a person, brilliant in their fields and are personally interested in the success of the students. The rigorous admissions process means that all of the students are pretty smart, this elevates the discourse of the discussion based classes (english, theology, foreign language), while allowing the teachers in more objective classes (Math, History, Science) to focus on new learning new material rather than catching the class up on old material.

Finally the most compelling part of Regis to me is the culture. Everybody participates in some sort of club or sport. There is no stigma about asking the teachers for extra help, in fact it is encouraged. The students are laid back, yet focused and quietly ambitious, and always maintain a good sense of humor.
Pretty much everyone is involved in the extracurricular scene here. And if you can't find one to suit yourself, you can always found a club yourself. As far as what the scene's like, the Hearn (Speech & Debate team), sports teams, and Catalyst (community service org.) dominate, mostly in that order. Yes, you read that right: debate is basically our football team. We're top 5 in the country in it, and the top debate kids always end up at Harvard, Yale, or Princeton. That kind of inspires a cutthroat atmosphere within the debate circles (because they're all vying for the coach's favor), but some kids really feed off that.

Outside of that scene, student publications and the Regis Repertory, which produces plays, also have significant presences. People are somewhat defined by their activities insofar as there are generally accurate stereotypes about people in each activity, and how people tend to hang out with people within those activities.
