    Strake is overall a very good school. There are excellent resources, both academically and athletically, available to the student who want to utilize them. Some teachers were very good, some teachers were less good, but overall I’d say the teachers were well above average when compared to other Texas high schools. The facilities and food were all very good also. However, over my four years at Strake, I’ve seen focus in the administration shifting from academics to athletics and I expect this trend to continue. In the future, Strake academics may fall behind Strake athletics.

    Strake Jesuit is a very good school. The school allows the students a large amount of freedom to do with what they wish. For example during a 50 minute period between 1st and 2nd period called "community time" students can work on homework, meet with teachers, go to clubs, or hang out with friends. The teachers are very flexible and will accommodate to the students needs as best as possible. Strake gives every student the opportunity to succeed, which is also why it roots out laziness, the opportunity is there, but the student must take the initiative. This sense of independency prepares the student for college life and beyond.
    Strake Jesuit College Prep has done amazing things to me this year. Coming in as a freshman was an overwhelming change from my much smaller middle school. Strake helped me adjust in a way that I didn't feel overwhelmed after the first couple of days. My teachers genuinely care about my success and are happy to go out of their way to help me succeed. Perhaps the most amazing thing at Strake is the debate team. I had never done debate before and I wanted to try it out I instantly fell in love with the team. Despite all of the crazy Coronavirus that is happening, Strake is devoted to make sure that I still have the materials that I need in order to succeed in my education. I get email updates for everything that they could send me which helps me keep up to date on what I need to know. The teachers are helping me adapt to this new type of work. They have not assigned busy work just to say that we are working but make assignments meaningful and helpful.
