My experience at the University of Detroit Jesuit High School was a fantastic one. As a current freshman in college, I can confidently say that UofD gave me an advantage among my peers. The caliber of my education was above par, and it prepared me well for college.

The greatest strength of UofD was it's holistic approach to education; not just forming great students, but forming great men for others. The teachers care about raising good students in and out of the classroom and as a result, I had no bad experiences with my teachers. As a STEM-focused student, the multimillion-dollar STEM wing was a fantastic addition.

I am thankful that I was able to attend "The High", as the University of Detroit Jesuit High School in Detroit is affectionately known. Although I was worried about fitting in initially, my overall experience has been great. The brotherhood, because we're an all-boys school, makes me feel like I am truly apart of something bigger than just myself. I have really matured in many ways. My experience has been awesome because of my peers, the co-curriculars I'm involved in, and the administration. The best experience by far has been my Kairos experience, retreat during senior year, where I learned a lot about my faith, what motivates me, and how I'd like to live my life.
Whilst the academic reputation of U of D Jesuit is still commendable, many times students of color, low economic status, irreligious students and students of the LGBT community feels sidelined and often express sentiments of not truly belonging. The school prides itself on being "United by Diversity", yet still struggles to have conversations about race, gender, sexuality, religion and politics that don't align with their crystal clear agendas. Wile the school does try to blanketly include everyone, many times students reject those advancements. The students present an often toxic culture of homophobia, classism, sexism and xenophobia under the guise of brotherhood the school so aggressively emphasizes. In short, yes the school is an academic powerhouse with some of the most winningest sports teams in the city of Detroit, yet if you're not a straight, white Catholic from Royal Oak, you're as good as invisible.
