St. Ignatius College Preparatory is a great school with academic rigor, competitive sports, and a variety of extracurriculars, such as an outstanding performing arts program. Saint Ignatius offers endless opportunities and resources which help the students prepare for a college education. Some of these resources include a counseling department, for both personal, academic, and college matters. Additionally, the sports coaches are also very eager to help their athletes perform to the best of their ability. As a swimmer, my coaches are tough, but also understanding of my other commitments. The teachers are passionate about what they teach and always available for meeting with students outside of class. Saint Ignatius has strong school pride which is evident through our exciting sports games. Saint Ignatius is quite an accomplished school, however I would like to see more racial diversity in the student body. As a Latina student, I often feel like a minority in the school community.
