Do I really need to write a review to submit this? That seems silly. I'm friends with St. X guys and they are some of the best people I know. They are kind, supportive, and very intelligent. See? Now my being forced to write a review to submit my other opinions seems odd. I cannot speak for the academics or clubs as students, parents, or administration can, but I can absolutely say that from the St. X guys I have met and have become very close friends with, no matter how many jerks you may find (which exist at every high school on the planet) it isn't hard to find open and wonderful people here.

Saint Xavier is a great school with an amazing community, where students are taught extremely well and prepared for college and beyond, but two major issues need to be resolved: Students do not have enough AP opportunities and AP grades aren't weighted, the science department is very sub-par and few of the science teachers are effective. However, the school is working to become more diverse and solve some of the minor issues with the school.
The 4 years I spent at Saint Xavier were the best times of my short life. I maintained a perfect 4.0 average in a highly competitive atmosphere, which encourages you to be the best you can be. My teachers were crucial to my formation as a young man. I took mostly AP, Advanced Placement courses and it helped me greatly for college credit. I am starting college as a Sophmore and 1/2 to my Junior year with the AP credit attained.
