I started at U of D Jesuit for the 2013-2014 year in the 8th Grade, and so far, this has been the best school that I have ever attended. First off, the teachers and students are the most welcoming people that anyone could ask for. The first day, I was quite nervous about my new school, yet now, I feel as though I have been attending for years, and I have made many new friends. A cool thing is that many people (including me) come from the suburban areas of Detroit, not just inside of the city. Many of my friends are from across Metro Detroit! There is a lot of economic and racial diversity, and I have been immersed to completely new lifestyles. I must say that this has been about the best thing that's ever happened to me in my life. I'm proud to call myself a U of D Jesuit Student. Go Cubs!!!
I am currently a student at University of Detroit Jesuit High School. My Dad, Grandfather, and Great-Uncle are all alumni from here. I come from far away just to come here because the school is so good. Everyone at our school comes from everywhere in Metro-Detroit and Detroit. They come from all over because the school is so good. It is very challenging. We always get more than 2 hours a night. If someone needs help with their homework, then they can always ask a teacher for help, and the teacher will help them. Once I was out sick for a whole week. I needed to catch up on everything quickly, so I went to my teachers after school. I asked them for help catching up on my homework, and they were more than willing to help me. It is a very challenging school. You will always find help there if you need it, but if someone does not want to be there and is not willing to work, then they are usually gone by then end of the year. The teachers explain the material in a way that is easy for us to understand. It is easy to understand, but the teachers want us to know it. That is where it gets challenging, in a good way. In short, U of D has great teachers and is academically challenging.
U of D Jesuit is an outstanding institution for young men. It is intellectually stimulating, socially conducive with a diverse student body and staff. I enjoyed my time at U of D and it allowed me to be successfully prepared for collegiate work as well as medical school. For those who are contemplating sending your son to U of D, do it, do not hesitate, it will be well worth your money and time.
U of D is considered by many on of the best academic schools in the state of Michigan and the school does not disappoint. The teachers care about the students and want to see them succeed by meeting with them after school and even are in charge of many of the clubs. The environment at U of D is friendly and by the end of high school all students will feel a part of the high school. Don't expect to skate through school here or you will end up swallowed up from the difficulty of the courses. There is help given to students that want to improve their grades but for unmotivated students this school will prove a challenge.
Did not prepare me for college. My math teachers all quit after i took their course. Translated to me relearning those concepts in college while public school kids excelled. My science courses were elementary at best. Is it a coincidence that i knew nothing about evolution after graduating u of d? (genetics is where biology is nowadays, guys). And the atmosphere is competitive, unfriendly, and pompous. Could use a few girls, don't you think? What an archaic tradition. And i wasted SO much time in those useless religion courses/ceremonies. Can i get my money back?
Terrible. You can't have a social life here... its just work work work ... but, it does prepare you for college
U of D Jesuit High School is a fine institution and has been very challenging and rewarding for our Son who is beginning his Sophomore year. Our Son went to a Catholic School from pre-K to 8th Grade and the all boys environment at U of D has been a very good experience to this point. The teachers challenge these students everyday and the focus is on education and not athletics. This is a TRUE college prepatory environment and would encourage anyone with interest in sending their Son to U of D is to take a tour at the Open House which takes place in the Fall. U fo D is producing the next leaders for all walks of lfe.
The quality of education my son receives from U or D is outstanding. The harder he works, the more he is challenged.\ Excellent performance is rewarded; as it should be!
Excellent, challenging academics that help students in their future careers. Teachers are always there to help, and discipline is high. The athletic program is rebuilding, and is becoming stronger than ever. I would choose this school over any other.
No matter what anybody says, U of D is an extremely difficult school that truly prepares their students to enter college and graduate programs. From the college center to the wonderful teachers and great technology centers, U of D Jesuit is the place to be if you want to succeed.
I am currently a student at U of D Jesuit. This is honestly by far the best high school choice in my area. The school has a motto of 'Men for Others' that is accompanied into each class. Students are not only taught high level academics, but also how to be a good person. I highly recommend this school to anyone. Students must be prepared for a difficult curriculum, as it is a college prep school, but it is all worth it when students get into some of the best colleges nationwide. The atmosphere at the school is very pleasant. The school is cleaned and well maintained. The students are also very friendly and accepting of different backgrounds. I promise, these will be some of the best years of your students life.
Best decision I ever could have made. My advanced Biology class a freshman was by my own sister's admission more difficult than her Senior AP Bio at Cranbrook which is always highly nationally ranked. Most importantly, it taught me to think about my impact on the world;not just about what my education could get me.
I am currently a student at U of D Jesuit, the best school on the planet. Though some people mistake their own laziness for the poor teaching, It is truly an amazing school. The students learn at an accelerated level. Some freshmen books seem as though they are at a college level. The teachers are very approachable and are truly wonderful. I also attended the academy. Though there are many children sent there because they screwed around at their own school are usually gone rather quickly. It is an amazing school that is not for the lazy kid.
u of d is an amazing school, with an amazing staff, and students. Everything about this school stands out from every other school. For that dont want to pay the tuition, trust me it will be worth it in the long run. It may not be the school it was 15 years ago but it is still at the top of the list for michigan highschools.
I currently attend U of D Jesuit and I can say that it has been the best thing to happened to me in my life thus far. My peers are open and accepting and the teachers are really there to help you. I highly recommend this school
Test scores and the scholarship dollars offered to each year's graduating class are clear evidence of one of the best academic programs in SE Michigan. Meanwhile, the school lives its motto of building 'Men for Others for the Greater Glory of God.' U of D Jesuit was the best choice for my boys.
Excellent school! My son had a 3.7 and was able to get into 4 jesuit schools and 1 ivy leauge school. I am happy I didn't send my child to a public school. Everyone is spirited and everyone is always involved. Including the students.
As a third generation graduate of 'The High' I speak for my family and classmates who all believe that UofD High was one of the best things that has ever happend to us!
UofdJesuit is everything and more than I expected. It has prepared my son in all categories of life. We are very proud that our son is a Jesuit.
I am a recent Grad of the High and I had the most amazing experience at this school... I now am a junior at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business and I would not be where I am today if it was not for that school. If you take advantage of all that the High has to offer you will have the best experience of your life. I loved it there and I would not trade my experience for the world
