Arrupe Jesuit High School 1

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.

Generally all teachers are respectful and have great teaching technics. I would like to see teachers take an initiative and offer help to students when their grade drops.

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!
