According to the last review do not attend this school it is not a good school.


Posted March 7, 2013

Our daughter fought us in attending Regis and we simply told her she had no choice in the matter. Three years later she has thanked us several times for giving her this amazing opportunity. Regis has not only pushed her into acheiving her full academic potential she has developed into a mature and caring young woman. The school focuses on growing these kids into well rounded caring adults. It's nice to see a school where being smart and accomplished is "cool". We love this school and the community that supports it. All of our children will be attending Regis and we would recommend it to any family.

Not sure how the '02 grad's comments are helpful a decade later, so I will give you a 2013 grad's perspective. Our president recently checked in with this year's freshmen to see how it was going for them. A freshman told him he has not had this much fun in school since kindergarten. I can't argue with that. Make no mistake: the academics are tough. Some of my friends coming from public schools struggled the first year. But most of the teachers are willing to work with you to make sure you stay on top of the work. I was pleasantly surprised as a freshman to experience class without girl drama and required reading that guys might actually be interested in. Well, I still had to read Romeo and Juliet, but I also got to read Guns, Germs and Steel. And we can always go out on the green at lunch to talk to the girls. The retreats and service projects that we do build lifelong friendships. Kairos retreat junior year is life-changing. My friends at other schools can't wait for graduation. Most of my friends at Regis are a little sad to see it coming to an end. But we are encouraged by the brotherhood that remains in the alumni that return; often to teach here.

Could not have asked for a better experience for my sons. Overall, the teachers and administration have blown me away with their passion for educating men and women for others. I've watched bratty/catty boys and girls turn into compassionate, intelligent gentlemen and ladies by their jr. year. The mandatory retreats let them see that the kid that's been annoying them really has overcome great obstacles in life. The freshman are welcomed and cheered for by upper classmen on their first day. They run through the football players tunnel with fanfare at the first game. These kids end with an unbelieveable bond with each other and their teachers. The academics push them beyond what they thought and it's cool to have a high GPA here. The LD support has exceeded our expectations. The football coach prays over his players lockers every week, and talks to them about respecting women. Many different religions are here and all are encouraged to grow in their own faith. When we were deciding whether to spend the money, we sat near the student section at a football game, then near our neighborhood school's student section. That was all we needed to hear. Try it.

Excellent teacher/student interaction. While I often feel too much emphasis is placed on sports at Regis, my children have received an excellent education.

Obviously the three 1 star ratings are sour grapes. My grandson goes there in 9th grade and he is totally satisfied with the school. The courses are challenging and you have to put an effort into the learning process. This is no place to have an attitude. There will be those who just can't make the grade here.

If you want your student to be in a caring, challenging and positive environment - Regis is it. My son is currently a Junior and absolutely loves his school. He and his "brothers" are proud of their school and work hard every day to be the best academically, athletically, socially and spiritually. The "whole" education is worth every penny. Yes, the classes are challenging but the teachers are always willing and available when needed. But a Regis education is more than just academics. They are socially and spiritually transforming bright kids into caring men and women to serve others. I have been fortunate enough to walk the hallways during school hours and am amazed at the interaction I see between students. The respect and genuine caring for one another is unbelievable. To see students in the hallway working on projects together or reading you get a real sense that this is a true college preparatory experience. I know that when he graduates, he will be well prepared to succeed in any college. Thank you Regis Jesuit and keep up the good work!

Regis emphasizes what they call the Magis, or the "more". That's what you get at Regis: more than one would ever expect from a school. As a graduated senior, I'll freely admit that, coming from a public school background, I was at first apprehensive about Regis Jesuit. In the end, I would not trade the experience for any other school. Not only the teachers, but each and every student cares about you and your well-being. When people speak of the Regis brotherhood and sisterhood, there is no hyperbole involved. Regis has made me reevaluate what I hold as important in life and has shown me the true meaning of camaraderie. Sure, there might be the odd bad teacher and the lunch schedule gets boring after a while, but the mark of a great school is what you feel when you look back on the experience, and I can assure you that there is no place anywhere like Regis Jesuit.

it was obvious from day one, that Regis Jesuit was clearly in a class by itself. The academic carriculum is second to none and the teachers always make time for students. My oldest will be a senior next year and has accelled in virtually everything she has been envolved and will complete her 4 years at Regis above a 4.0. We are truly blessed. Your high shcool is what you make out of it and you only get 4 years, make it great. They highly encourage participation at all levels and in all extracarricular activities and almost demand it..As there are only about 650 young ladies in the girls Division and about 810 in the boys division... See for yourself..There are GREAT things going on with these young men and women! Go see for yourself why Regis is what it is .

This is simply an outstanding school. My daughter attended for all four years. The teachers care, they guide and prepare for students for college. Our daughter went to a highly selective college. We are not catholic or rich, but felt very accepted and cared about. Don't listen to students that may be sport rivals. This is a great school.

The teachers at the school are awful, they honestly do not care and are just flat out mean. I had the worst year of my life there, DO NOT ATTEND!

It has excellent teachers and the administration is heavily involved with getting the students ready for college. I have attended for 3 years, and from experience I can tell that if you fall behind, then the school year will be a terrible experience. But if you stay focused, then it will be very rewarding. Some students may say that we are stuck up, but the reality is that we just have a strict dress code, strict academic policies, and we must be very polite or else we get in trouble. These are the best years of my life hands down.

The teachers are not good and the school as a whole is very stuck up. I really would like to transfer but unfortunately I cannot. I would not send my kids here.

I am nearing the end of freshmen year here at Regis Jesuit- Boys Division and I have found a community that truly cares for one another. The school provides a great environment that allows for boys to be boys. However, the demerit and JUG system does keep the students in line. The academics are the best in the state because of the amazing teaching staff. And the sports are pretty good to. Regis got first in both boys and girls basketball, and hockey. Regis also took second in: cross country, tennis, and soccer. I firmly believe that Regis is the best school in the state and will only continue to get better under the leadership of the great Jesuit priests. I love Regis and couldn't imagine going any where else.

I love regis. This is my second year at the girls division and I've learned so much already. Academically and about myself. The teachers are very caring and willing to help us in whatever ways possible so that we get the best of our high school experience. Regis is definitly one of the best schools in colorado.

I have never been in a school where the grades and the tests mean something but don't devour a students mind. This school also focuses on the importance of being a mature adult and being women and men with and for others. Regis has an environment that is welcoming to all levels of academics and it is truely a home to me and my fellow students.

I absolutely love Regis! I'm a sophomore there and last year was just so fun. So much different than public school too! All of my teachers are so attentive and willing to help me. Honestly, being at an all-girls school really negates the cliques and the ongoing competitions between girls. Everyone is so accepting of each other too. And we are also very disciplined, but in a good way. We learn from our mistakes with our peers and teachers. I have been able to participate in tons of activities such as theatre, band, chorus, art club, ambassadors, knitting, student council, yearbook club, school newspaper, and so much more :) I'm currently earning a 4.0 at Regis while in my public middle school I had a 3.2! I've learned SO much! Regis is so wonderful...everyone should come here! :)

My daughter will be entering her third year at Regis. It's the best choice we've made for her. She loves it!! The girls are free to be themselves. You don't have the pressures of public schools. No one cares about race,religion or economic status. The girls are there for two reasons and that is to learn and to be women for others.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
