    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.
