    "This is a competitive and difficult college preparatory experience, based on a conservative, liberal arts base. Any student will be challenged but supported by intense math and science matched with high expectations for writing and critical thinking. The community feel is incredible because the school is so small (approx. 45 per class) and teachers are intimately involved in the intellectual life of the students."

    "Cistercian is most likely the top school in Texas, and one of the top schools in the United States. Cistercian however is rigid and does not have any room for schedule flexibility. The Form (the class) takes the same courses throughout Middle School, but in High School you can choose one class (the rest of the classes you take are the same as the other boys in your Form). Although this may seem like a negative, it is a positive due to the size of the class. With only ~44 boys in your Form, the entire Form helps each other with classwork. The most major negative about Cistercian is accommodations for those with learning disabilities. A close friend of mine has Dyslexia, but receives absolutely no accommodations from the school (i.e. no extra time on tests). The teachers are what make academics at Cistercian what they are. They demand, teach, and test at the college level (many alumni comment on how they often tutor in college using their notes and tests from Cistercian). The foreign language department is the weakest department at Cistercian, but they have hired a brand new teaching staff in the last 3 years."

    "I have been at Cistercian since the 5th grade, and I believe that is the best way to go through Cistercian. After 8 years of being with a group of about 44 guys and having the same Form Master (basically a home room teacher who stays with the class until graduation) you become a family. The Form (the class) is what makes Cistercian "Cistercian", without the Form Cistercian is just another Prep school."

    "Their doors are never closed, and are always open to talk about anything. The teachers can be a tutor when you need help academically, or they can be someone to discuss the game last night. Every teacher is only at Cistercian because they love the school and they love to teach. They are some of the most over qualified high school teachers in the country (many are adjunct professors at the University of Dallas)."

    "As a prep-school, Cistercian is easily one of the best in the state (and I'd argue nation). Knowing Cistercian my whole life, the success rate of students who have attended Cistercian is 100%. It will prepare you with the curriculum for college and the real world, including discussion of life's hardest or most controversial topics that one you would otherwise never think of. You do not choose classes. You only choose your electives, and for senior year, your science. Teachers make the classes rigorous and the work is manageable, even though it's hard some times. The workload at Cistercian is way more than other schools, however I don't think of this is a negative quality because my brother's tell me the workload is very similar to a college's workload, which is what Cistercian is preparing you for."
