All catholic school is not good in academic but good in learning evironment.
I am a gradaute of the school. Not a day goes by that Xavier is not present in my life. The teachers are amazing and always there before and after school. As for extracurricular activities, I was involved in over 10 thoughout my high school career. There is something for everyone. Lastly, the parents are highly visible in the school and in the lives of the students.
Xavier High School is one of the top two Catholic high schools for boys in the tri-state area. I don't think that comes as a surprise to anyone in the know. No school offers more on the part of extracurricular activities, discipline and history than Xavier. What further distinguishes Xavier from other schools is the dedication and adoration from their well-established alumni. You will not come across any alumni that contributes, promotes or bleeds more for a school than 'Sons of Xavier.'
Generally an excellent school with a mid to high intellect level faculty. Administration was excellent under jesuit stewardship but has lapsed slightly in the past year. Extracarricular activities are extensive and parent involvment is generally good.
Never have I seen a better instance of a jesuit education in the modern world. The students at Xavier are some of the best I have ever seen.
Xavier has been one of the finest academic institutions for over 150 years. If there was ever an example of how to incorporate the full experience of mind, body, and soul,then Xavier meets the criteria. It is one of the most prestigious high schools in the country.
As an educator myself, I am so appreciative and grateful for the education my two boys received at Xavier. It is truly a top notch school. In regards to the Brooklyn Tech comparison, I would have to say that contrary to the posted belief, Xavier is the much better school. They send a higher percentage to four year colleges, they have a better student/teacher ratio, more activities and programs, and certainly a safer and more structured learning environment. I would know this because I graduated from Brooklyn Tech in '74.
There is nothing like a Xavier education. Not only is a Xavier education better than just about every competing Catholic high school education BY MILES, it is probably also better than the vast majority of college educational opportunities as well. It is one of the best schools in the tri-state area.
this is a good school. I feel that children get the necessary support they need to succeed. But I would still say that Brooklyn Tech is a much better school.
Xavier is an outstanding high school. I would match them against any elite high school. They are definitely the best investment for the dollar. Academically they send over 200 students to top four year colleges and universities each year, an over 99% graduation rate. They also offer more AP courses and additional courses, including militay scince for ROTC students, than any other Catholic high school. They offer over fifteen sports and over fifty organizations. Their music program awarded them the 'Best High School Band' during the St. Patrick's Day review within the past few years. Most importantly, Xavier is 1K cheaper than rival Fordham Prep and 13K cheaper than Loyola, yet Xavier offers so much more than both of them, including Regis when it comes to opportunities.
How great is Xavier? Here are just a fraction of graduates making an impact across America: The president of Anheiser Busch, the president of the United States Postal Service, the president of NBC Networks, the US Supreme Court Justice who appointed our US president ( Antonin Scalia.)How about NBC's Al Roker, FOX News Mike Sheehan, and the US Ambassador to the Philippines, Alberto Del Rosario? This school has an endless list of leaders who haved shaped our country. Students who graduate from Xavier have a tremendous capacity for knowledge,discipline, faith, and service. Xavier exemplifies the best of the best. This school is not for the faint of heart. Only the cream of the crop need apply.
This is the best school ever. it give a great education and is was the best 4 years ever.
Xavier High School is an elite academic institution. This school clearly sets the standard for high academic performance with a brand of 'old school' discipline. Boys do not become graduates here, they become leaders.
Xavier High School is a wonderful academic institution with undeniable results of discipline, class, and tradition. It is arguably one of the top two Catholic high schools in the tri-state area.
The academic program is by far superior to other neighboring schools, however, the administration does not want to deal with children who do something wrong. Their answer to everything is to expel them and leave them in the middle of the year to scramble to find somewhere to go. They are cold-hearted and I would seriously reconsider anyone going here.
Xavier is a very prestigious and rigorous institution. You will not find one Catholic high school in the NYC metropolitan area that sends 99% of students to four year collegs and yet has over 15 sports and 52 organizations, a student to teacher ratio of under 15:1, and a tuition that is still under $8,000. On top of that, Xavier managed to be one of the very few schools that never broke from their original roots of being an all-boy, Jesuit, and military school. With Blue Ribbons honors under their belt and an ROTC program that is recognized under 'honors with distinction', the highest in the country, it has never been a secret how Xavier has been one of the three best Catholic high schools for boys in the NYC metropolitan area for close to 160 years.
Excellent college preparatory school, run in the great Jesuit tradition. In fact, I learned more here than I did in college. Not only did my Xavier education enrich me intellectually, it also taught me to be ethical, tolerant and involved citizen of the world.
Excellent school! United States Department of Education Blue Ribbon School for academic excellence and 2003 Blackboard Award for Best Catholic High School in New York City. Many of the school's distinguished faculty have either been graduates of the school itself or educating young men there for over twenty years. The school has a 99% graduation rate going on to four year colleges and universities. The class of 2004 were awarded 16 million dollars in college scholarships. Some of their distinguished graduates include US Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia '53, US Ambassador to the Philippines, Alberto Del Rosario '57, NBC television personality and author, Al Roker '72, author, George Brennan '89, and FOX News New York Investigative Reporter, Mike Sheehan ' 66.
Xavier is a very special commununity with a hundred & fifty year tradition. In keeping with it's mission of educating the middle class & lower middle class, Xavier has kept the tuition costs well below the average in a city with escalating private education costs. The school begins every year at a deficit & the shortfall is supplemented by strong alumni support & some funding from the Jesuit community. Xavier men have a strong sense of who they are when they graduate & find themselves well prepared academically when entering college. The Xavier community showed how tight-knit and yet how far-reaching it is during the unfortunate 9/11 attacks. Xavier lost several 'sons' & relatives and many found solace on 16th street.
