St. Ignatius College Preparatory School Reviews

Saint Ignatius has helped me in all different aspects of my life and this amazing institution protected me from the scary transitions when I was going through some challenges. I am a Mexican-American student who is first generation college bound so I can speak upon the diversity and honestly Saint Ignatius is inclusive and welcoming as long as the student puts themselves out there to meet new people and break social barriers. Every place has its bad and good traits and no school is perfect but SI is supportive in making everyone from every ethnic, social, and economic background feel as equal as possible. I also played sports at SI and I was president of the Wildcat Welcoming Club. I was apart of the Association of Latin American Students, so I saw many different aspects of Saint Ignatius and I cannot complain! This school has empowered me to set forth and achieve my goals being a minority woman. I am forever thankful for the experiences and support this school had given me.

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.
St. Ignatius has helped me to better understand myself along with preparing me academically for my future education. SI really fulfills their duty of preparing its students for college, whether it be their rigorous academics or learning to form strong relationships with their teachers and peers. Throughout my four years at SI, I've also learned the importance of maintaining faith in God and knowing that I'm able to find him in all things. And I believe that if it weren't for SI incorporating God into my daily life I wouldn't be who I am today. Aside from that, SI's diversity has helped me to become comfortable in an environment along with making me feel as if I belonged. Lastly, I am glad to have attended St. Ignatius because it really has helped to lead me on the right path along with preparing me for college.
