Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
As a product of Arrupe, I can attest to strong character building methods engrained in all students. Not all students are able to take the wise lessons that which is Arrupe's model and search for "easier" schools. Arrupe ensures all students who graduate KNOW that life is not easy.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The administration holds years of experience and knowledge in education. To doubt their love of Christ, years of experience and day-to-day s understanding of student of activity is a mistake. These individuals are at Arrupe to fulfill their vocation called by God.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Teachers at Arrupe are more than just average. These individuals strive to support students and work with them for ultimate success. These teachers live their faith and understand their vocation as Men and women for others. Their understanding of Arrupe's mission holds them to a high standard and they work long hours without appreciation from students or parents.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Arrupe ensures students complete their homework and stay after school to finish tasks they failed to complete on time. This is a huge lesson of accountability. A boss will not care if you had other things to do. If there is a deadline, you meet that deadline.

I graduated in 2008, in the Second Graduating class and I can tell you, as a former student my experience truly changed my life. If it wasn't for Arrupe, I never would have networked so successfully, finding jobs and supervisors which would support me in my career, and the support of attending a Jesuit University. Arrupe taught me to be accountable for my actions; if I did not complete assignments, lacked in my resolve or wasted time. Arrupe pushed me to give my best in what I did and that which I represented. I was blessed to receive the Arrupe Jesuit Full Collegiate Scholarship where for four year, my scholarship covered, room, board and tuition. I graduated with no debit and several jobs offers because my work experience created a competitive edge in ciomparision to other university graduates who had never been hired or worked before. My knowledge of Catholic teachings allow me to work for nonprofits and faith-based institutions in the Archdiocese of Denver and I am still blessed to be here today. Students here are encouraged to work hard, be accountable, mature successfully, understand the work place and ACTIVELY live their faith. If these are all the values you hold for your student, Arrupe is the school for your family. God be with you.

Worst private catholic school ever! They come out as caring and college oriented, but in all reality not all students make it to a 4 year college. If they don't like your child, the Dean and Principal will make their life miserable! No matter what they do, they will find everything and anything to make them go away (expel) and if they don't they will keep harassing you until you leave on your own. I wonder how many students actually stay all 4 years...? You have to brown nose if you don't want to get on their bad side and turn the other way if you think they are wrong. Work program is great for the children, but they don't have AP courses. The dean will make her own rules as of what you should wear, so if your on her bad side, forget about it! If she likes you though, she will let you get away with everything. It's a very hostile and intimidating environment because of that. Other than that, teachers are great. Oh, and last thing they change your child's grades, so save the ones you get in the mail, all of them and compare it to the last one you get in the mail around summer time. My child cries because of how she/he is treated there.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
They seem a little disorganized and at times take a long time to return graded papers. Over all they are efficient teachers.

This is an amazing school, it gives you work experience you don't experience at ANY other high school in Colorado. Teachers care, and better yet: It's Catholic! You don't have to be catholic, just be willing to respect God.

This is a great school for any parents want their children to have a new experience of working in real life. I have a son is currently studying here and he has to work one day a week! He loves his job and the school so much! One more interesting is: the money that the students make by working will go straight into their tuition, hence the tuition of Arrupe is not as high as other private school. Beside the Coperate Work Study Program, the teachers and staff are extremely helpful and the students here are very friendly. Thanks to Arrupe Jesuit HS, my son has become more mature. He also love working during in the summer because that's a great opportunity to earn money from his own hand!
