Like the other reviewers noted- Loyola has an extraordinary english dept. I arrived at college with stronger writing skills than many of my peers, at an Ivy League institution. The teachers are always willing to help- I remember on one occasion a teacher called her friends to cancel plans so that she could continue helping a student outside of school hours. Although the science department was lacking when I attended, it's continually improving. Even though I hated high school, I received an incredible education.
i love this school. it has such great programs for everything! the french program... is especially wonderful! coming from someone in the class, it rocks! and all the kids i know in the class love it! They also have great math, science, history, and english programs. overall amazing! i would reccomend this school to anyone! especially those who are interested in going to a good college! =)
Rigorous English program prepares students well for college and the reading and writing portions of the SAT/ACT. Students learn how to write coherent, college level essays. They read a wide variety of books and do creative and analytical writing. Math teachers explain difficult concepts well and are eager to provide extra help. Chemistry teacher is outstanding; he is able to use analogies to help students understand abstract concepts. Top notch music and speech/debate teachers and football coach.
