Xavier High School Reviews

129 reviews
All Categories
Historically it was an excellent school, always diverse in its results with hard-working blue collar grads as well as white collar high flyers. As an alum and a parent of a recent graduate I can say that a most serious decline has occurred in their college prep. The administration seems to have over-expanded in the wrong directions, often overreaching in attempts to influence students theological and political outlook at the expense of academic and dialectic rigor. This year was marked with what feels like genuine malpractice in their college counseling, an urgent problem I encourage others to look into independently. I will always have a deep affection for the institution based on my experiences there decades ago, but it has truly let me down as a parent. I pray for a change of leadership in the near future.

I started Xavier sixty years ago and still consider it the second most important influence in forming my values, after my parents.
Xavier was demanding academically and brought me into contact with a diverse geographic and cultural classmates. The Jesuits then were tough and rigorous. Some of the lay teachers should have been weeded out.
I have been in fairly close contact with Xavier over the last fifty plus years and I have witnessed great things happen in the schools continuous growth.
The Jesuit mantra of “ Becoming A man/woman for others is even more evident today.
Going to a high school in Manhattan was a huge plus, not having fields nearby was challenge.
Every January over a thousand alums, from 21 to 95 , get together to renew old friendships, tell exaggerated stories and sing “ Sons of Xavier......an exhilarating experience.
I liked the bond I got to form with the other guys there. Whether that be in the classroom- resident history nerd, at your service- or in our United States Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps Regiment and Drill Team, I formed some pretty tight relationships with my friends. And yeah, I lost touch with a few guys from grade and middle school. Not sure how I'll do with these guys after I graduate. But besides a horrific religion curriculum, I wouldn't change a thing.
