    Overall Experience: I believe the educational value, sense of community, lack of defined cliques, friendly atmosphere, compassionate teachers and staff, Jesuit traditions, all provide a great environment for learning and growth for the students.

    Admissions: The admissions process at Cheverus High School is seamless. A student essay and a parent essay is required as well as middle school grades and teacher recommendations. The admissions department keeps you notified when the information is received. They administer a standardized test for class placement. Highest scorers receive financial reward. Financial aid is very generous and fair. However I do know some recipients who I do not believe needed the aid based solely on the fact they also have a "ski" house.

    Teachers: Probably like most schools there's a mix. Some very good teachers, many that are pretty good, and a sprinkling of teachers that have no business teaching.

    Administration & Policies: This school is very strict about the dress code, which I believe is an amazing thing. There is very little to no bullying, if there is the kids will stand up for each other and make sure it stops. We are all one big community.

    Student Culture & Diversity: This school has an amazing culture to it. The kids are amazing, the teachers are very good and care about the students. There is an amazing sense of community at this school, we are all together.
