    I absolutely love Ignatius. My brothers and I all went here, and I believe it is the best school in the state. It truly prepares you for life, and connects you with people around the entire globe. Ignatius's reach truly spreads much farther than Cleveland. From interesting people, to devoted teachers, to a truly tight knit community, everything about Ignatius is fantastic. It not only prepares you as a student, but also as a human being, which is why it is the best. It makes you a complete person, and ready to tackle the world. Go 'Cats!

    My experience at Ignatius has made me ready and prepared for not only college, but the real world. The variety and levels of classes offered to students given them the chance to challenge themselves by facing a rigorous curriculum. The catholic faith is very prominent at Ignatius however, if you aren’t catholic, you will still be treated with equal respect by the teachers and students. I can proudly say that I have 0 regrets about going to Ignatius and to get the most out of this institution, apply yourself, work hard, and be open to growth.
    I had an excellent experience at Saint Ignatius High School. I feel that if one wishes to develop themselves into a man for others then the school provides so many resources to accomplish that; same goes for how much you learn and preparedness for college. Teachers were always available for help outside of the classroom. If you ever needed help for anything, whether it was academically or personally, someone on campus was able to help and give you guidance. I hope that Saint Ignatius High School continues to grow and expand so that many more young men can receive the opportunity to become successful.
