Best school ever! They have everything you could possible want in a high school! Most schools say they have things and at the surface it may look like they do but really don't. All you need to do is spend time at SICP and know what a special place this is. SICP's 150 year history and landmark status has given it credentials no other high school can claim. It has top notch academics, religion, financial aid, counseling, parent involvement, diversity, innovation...you name it they have it.

Saint Ignatius College Prep gave me the opportunity to grow as a person. I became so close to my faith, and was able to branch out and do things I never could have seen myself doing. Most of the teachers I had were amazing, but there was the occasional dud. There are tons of resources for everyone on almost any question a student may have. However, the administration does need to get more involved addressing student concerns about racism, sexual harassment, etc. Things of this nature were brought up a number of times and were consistently ignored, glossed over, or addressed inadequately.
While the education was superb, there was an extreme lack of effort by the administration to make the school environment welcoming to students of all backgrounds. There have been several major incidences or inappropriate pressuring of LGBT staff, a dismissal of complaints from minority students on racial issues, and an un-Christian practice of expelling students for infractions like weed (kids makes mistakes right?)
