St. Ignatius College Preparatory School Reviews

Saint Ignatius College Preparatory is a good school for academics and the school has an exceptional Principle. The curriculum does challenge each student and prepares you for college. That being said, the pressure of this school is very stressful. Many students are on anti-depressive medicine and the suicide rate is way to high. This needs to be looked at in my opinion. The sports vary depending on the coaches and year. I strongly recommend the swimming and JV Water Polo teams. The coaches are amazing! Some sports teams are very political and don't give students a fair chance to participate.

As a graduate from 1961, I can thank the Jesuits for their rigorous adhereance to the basics, Especially in math, physics and chemistry.
I expect I only absorbed half (or less) of what of they attempted to teach but it was enough to help me earn degrees in mechanical engineering technology, business management and an MBA.
I have worked for IBM, Lawrence Livermore National Labs, Kaiser Aluminum and
Simpson Strong-Tie.
My passion has been physics, engineering and the mechanical arts. Along the way I have been awarded 45+ US and foreign patents.
At 74 I still work every day, still innovate new products and especially enjoy all the people I get to work with.
Thank Yoy St. Ignatius College Prep!

SI has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. The Jesuit education is the finest around, and the community is so diverse that there is always something new to try. Its location in San Francisco gives you access to one of the coolest and adventurous cities in the country. Despite a relatively large student body for a private school, the community still feels so tight-knit. The teachers go above and beyond not just as educators, but as mentors who prepare you for college and life beyond. The Jesuit values of "cura personalis" and "men and women with and for others" are enacted wholeheartedly by each student in all areas of the school such as athletics, arts, and community service. St. Ignatius lives up to the "college preparatory" name.
