The school is good but that is where it stops. It seemed as though the school thought so highly of themselves when other school not in east LA are just as good. Don't make the same mistake I did and don't drink the cool aid
Be very careful if your daughter wants to attend a Loyola dance. There is a lot of unwanted touching and grinding. Perhaps the absence of girls on campus has the boys believing that all girls want to be groped by strangers all the time?
Loyola has taught me one valuable lesson in life -- the strong survives, the weak dies off. I went into Loyola believing I could myself and others to become better persons. I came out of Loyola knowing that this world is everybody for himself.
I owe this school a lot. I attended Loyola years ago. After Loyola, I went to a top college, and eventually received a Ph.D. from a top program in engineering and went on to become a professor at one of the top 3 universities in my field. Oh, I was a b- student at Loyola. While I was not the best student in the school... perhaps because of a 'troubled family life' .. I loved the school and I took away many lessons that have served me well in life. I still remember the names of many of my teachers at Loyola, although the names of my college professors have faded from my mind long ago. After many years, I still relate stories of the integrity of the Jesuit faculty (as well as lay teachers). While I am no longer a Catholic, they still have my greatest admiration. Thanks Loyola
My brother is graduating this year from Loyola high school. I can tell you that he loves the school. Loyola is well known for not only sports, but their academics. He said that the academics are rigorous, but it's all worth it. Go cubs! Their dances are amazing.
My son turned down a scholarship at another all boys Catholic school to attend Loyola. Little did we know then what a great decision we had made! Loyola not only far exceeded my expectations, but prepared him incredibly well for college. Within the first week of attending Loyola, my son was coming home and whistling and singing!! He was so happy there-it was a Godsend! Not only am I happy about the education he received at Loyola, but I am ecstatic about the friends he has made there, who will no doubt be lifelong "brothers." Loyola teaches the students to be "men for others" so that education is not solely their focus, and this makes such a difference. My son was accepted at 8 excellent universities, and (again) turned down a full merit based scholarship to Fordham University and chose to attend Georgetown University. He is just as happy there as he was at Loyola...his father and I couldn't be happier either!
Both of my sons attended Loyola. I had been skeptical when my wife first suggested Loyola, because of the commuting challenges of getting to and from downtown Los Angeles. But once you meet the boys on that campus and begin to observe the school's dedication to their motto, A man for others, you see that it is a special place. Any boy and family who attends will be enriched and become part of a very proud and distinctive community. They have very high standards for academics but even more so, for the young men themselves. There are numerous ways to be involved and active. Loyola graduate achievements are truly impressive. As a parent, you could not make a better decision.
I am extremely impressed with Loyola High School. The faculty and administration understand young people and respond to them with respect, motivation, and determination. They care about what these young men become in life. It is a remarkable place where learning and maturing walk hand in hand.
My son attended here and I had mixed feelings about the school. Some teachers were quite good while others seemed to be marking time. I did not find an attitude of learning for its own sake. It was more like 'let's get this overwith so we can play football'. Sports program is excellent although most will not make the cut. Wealthy kids and athletes have most arrogant attitude here but school does a great job with kids from poorer neighborhoods. Administration is very good and school promotes excellent overall life values.
My son currently attends Loyola and will be graduating this June. I think that Loyola has not only greatly exceeded my expectations on academics, faculty, staff and facilities on every level and every turn, but I am also so impressed with the students and their respect and manners that they not only have for their teachers and faculty but each other makes me so proud to be a Loyola parent. Not enough stars on here to show my gratitude and appreciation for the Loyola 'family'.
I'm currently attending Loyola and it is better than anyone could imagine. Best teachers, best facilities, best atmosphere, the list goes on and on. Only one word to describe the Loyola experience: amazing!
An excellent, but tough school. Sports is pretty top-notch, but what really sets Loyola apart is its staff of top-notch teachers. The cost is perhaps the schools greatest burden. At a cost of about 10 grand, the school eats up about 1/3 of my family's income. However, I do believe that the excellent school environment is totally worth it.
Teachers are great, and sports are excellent. I'll be sad when I'm done here. Best all boys school in America.
Loyola is second to none in the state and is one of the top high schools in the country. Loyola focuses on educating the whole person; mind, body, and spirit. Community Service and Athletics are also the best in LA.
Loyola is a great all boy school with academics that can't be beat. I have a son that attends this school and another one waiting in the wings for the opportunity to attend this great school. The extracurricular activities that are available can not be hailed enough. Being a cub mom has been a wonderful experience for me & my sons can't wait to be 'a man with & for others'!!
Loyola is one of the best schools in southern California. I love it, it is amazing and people in the Los Angeles area think highly of it. Loyola is the most amazing school
Loyola is one of the better high schools in the Los Angeles area. My four brothers and I attended Loyola, and I hope that my son will be able to attend when he reaches high school age. As you would expect with a Catholic school, it maintains high academic standards while not being one of the more expensive private schools in Los Angeles. It has the number of AP and the strong foreign language offerings that you would expect at a top private school.
Loyola High School of Los Angeles would be a bargain at any price, but its quality of faculty, facilities, and program make it a top choice for boys education in LA. There is a place for every young man to become 'a man for others' at Loyola, whether he be a jock, a drama guy, a computer/gaming fan, or just an all-round kid looking to find himself. Parents as well as alums are committed to this school, and it's obvious why -- LHS is committed to their sons. Our two sons credit Loyola and their teachers with much of their college and career success.
Arguably the best all boys high school in Southern California. Routinely sends graduating seniors to Ivy League universities. The teachers are dedicated and demand excellence from their pupils. Academics are balanced with a plethora of extracurricular activities and Christian service projects.
As a Parent and former student. Loyola was the best desicion my parents ever made for me. Great teacher support and guidance with the freedom to think outside of the box.
