Great school that guides students on the right paths of life. Loyola does not only encourage students to be academically and professionally successful, but it also encourages students to open their eyes to the rest of the world. Through its religious and service programs, Loyola students become more conscious of the world around them and strive to improve that world in their own lives everyday.
I am the happy and proud father of 2 kids that are currently attending Loyola School, and I cant even enumerate the many reasons I am extraordinarily enthusiastic about Loyola and what they have done for my kids. Loyola has molded my kids into exceptional, confident individuals. They act and think like winners. They are eager to learn. They love Loyola. They love going to school. And they are looking forward to attending great universities soon. I only wish more kids would have access to places like Loyola School.
I'm an alumna and I can't say enough good things about my time at Loyola. The curriculum is challenging, the teachers are caring and the students are actively involved in their own education. I was especially affected by the Jesuit mandate to make the students into men and women for others -- it affected the way that I look at everyday situations, even now nearly 10 years later.
My daughter graduated from Loyola High School in 2006. She did not attend the elementary school and yet received an excellent education. The teachers, head-master and all of the staff were thoroughly dedicated and very competent. The support she received at Loyola enabled my daughter to achieve an almost perfect score on her SAT s. The curriculum was very well-rounded, offering an abundance of AP courses, while also developing my daughter as an artist with wonderful Art and Drama programs. Participation in Loyola s many and constant volunteer efforts and experiences such being able to compete with a first-class Debate Team made for a very well-prepared and well-rounded student. Upon graduation my daughter had acceptances to Yale, Brown, Columbia, Stanford, Vassar, Georgetown and a half-dozen other great universities. This was true for most of her classmates as well. I credit Loyola for nurturing my daughter and enabling all her future accomplishments.
We transfered from a top private school for a faith based, co-ed education and found the academics to be very rigorous but in a nurturing, positive environment. This is an extraordinary school.
Loyola is a very good school. I have been very happy with the currciulum and philosophy of the school for my youngest son. My son would not have survived the academic and disciplinary demands of Xavier High School, which was honestly my first choice for him, but I now feel I made the right decision in as far as alleviating pressure to learn and perform in a nurturing Jesuit environment. I am a tad bit disappointed that they do not carry a football or hockey program for my son, but overall, for a small school, I am happy with the overall product.
Loyola provided my children with quality rigourous education. They had many extracurriculars and exciting activities that my children took part in. We have enjoyed watching our students blossoming at Loyola.
Rating this school as a current student, Loyola is a school steadily progressing in the area of academics. Not only is the school being renovated, new teachers being hired and student materials and cirricular activities being enriched, but the soul of the school is being preserved. Loyola still remains a school with 1-15 kids per class, a deep moral and sense of traditional ethics ingrated within the fabric of the school, as well as sincere desire to help one another and others. It is an institution that molds young men and women for others.
loyola school really cannot be compared to the other jesuit schools. yes, it is a jesuit school by name, but by nature we are more comparable to private schools like dalton and browning than jesuit schools like xavier and regis. that is because we are co-ed and intimate. as a loyola graduate, i was grateful for the patient and philosophical approach to education. does that make loyola better than the other jesuit schools? no. but it made loyola a better school for me.
Loyola School is a wonderful learning environment with small class sizes, the distinction of being the only co-educational Jesuit school in the region, and consisting of an administration that is as family to the students as the school itself.
The charm of the school is found in the intimate co-ed surroundings ,the upper crust neighborhood it is located in, and in the dedicated faculty that create a family environment. I do agree with other reviews that Loyola is quite different in comparison to other Jesuit and private schools, but where it may lack in competitive admission numbers and disciplinary rigor, it sure compensates for it with small class sizes, a desirable neighborhood, and the distinction of being the only co-educational Jesuit school in the tri-state area.
Loyola's student to teacher ratio and family atmosphere provide a setting that allows each student to perform to the best of their ability. The neighborhood location, the faculty, and the attending families make this a desirable and unique learning opportunity.
Nurturing school. Good teachers and balanced student body. Very family oriented. The school encourages students to perform to the best of their individual ability. The knock on Loyola is the huge tuition disparity between them and their competing Jesuit high schools. The school may lack the disciplinary and competitive admission numbers of Regis, Xavier, and Fordham Prep, but the finished product assures the strong academic credibilty and compassion of the school's students and their accomplished alumni.
Small class sizes and a strong family community. The school has always encouraged students to perform at the best of their individual level. I have to admit that the school was a little soft and liberal with academic pressure and discipline in comparison to a Regis, Xavier, Dominican Academy, etc -but hey? That is not what we were about. We were about social development and academic growth at our own level. (And they wish they had our siesta hours!) :)
Loyola graduates bring into adulthood the School's tradition of service to the community. Generosity of spirit and resources is the hallmark of a Loyola graduate. On a most basic level, alumni are smart, hardworking, and caring.
