    "Some of the negative reviews below contain some of the most twisted lies I have ever seen. First, dealing with the issue of "racism" at Marist. Complaints below say that there is a lack of diversity in the school; I can't seem to wrap my head around it. Marist is a private school that accepts applications and testing from ANY student. So is the lack of diversity caused by racism? Or lack of interest by minorities? I would have to say it is the latter. I am a white male, and I never even considered race when I chose my friends (my best friend is black). Everyone is accepted and loved at Marist; students that are Hispanic, Black, artistic, athletic, smart, shy, outgoing are all part of the Marist community. I could bore you with statistics, but I know first-hand that our academics are second to none. The teachers are so helpful and always there to help, and, as cheesy as it sounds, they make learning fun. The Redhawk Athletic teams are always some of the best, and we the best student section in the world cheering them on. I truly love everything about this school. If you want to make the best of your high school years, please consider Marist. GO REDHAWKS!"

    "I'm a graduate of 2013 and I hated everything about this school. I would have transferred if it weren't for the fact I was forced to go to a private school. If you're an athletic kid you'll fit in fine and think Marist is the best place on the earth, but if you're someone who takes the artistic path then don't go here. Basically, a bunch of rich athletes who care little to nothing up those who do not fit inside of their binary. Another problem I had with the school is that some of the teachers were completely worthless. It seems that the better teachers are only given to honors students. HOWEVER, I did have a few teachers that were very great that I have learned valuable lessons from. The only reason Marist does not fail on my book is because as much as I did not fit in, and as much as I hated the school and mostly the people, I did end up going to college prepared for the most part. The curriculum, when you apply yourself, will get you places. BUT, if you can apply yourself in any setting I recommend sticking to a public school where creativity is accepted and you won't live a miserable life trying to fit in."

    "Marist HS is one of the most racist schools in Chicago, think about it's location. The staff is friendly, but administration cares nothing about African-American students. Your child may be recruited for sports with big promises, DON"T BUY IT! If your are of a minority race, RUN; students are allowed to call others the N word and get away with it on a daily basis. My child came home everyday telling me of the racist incidents and how it was never addressed. My child now attends the local public school, and loves it. Why spend $$$$ for your child to be called out of their name. Parents, of minority students take my advice, find a different school!! All of the African American parents will tell you it's racists but they don't stand up and fight the school on this issue. In light of the Zimmerman case, Marist would embrace him and so would many of the families who live in Mt. Greenwood and surrounding areas. Don't buy that brothers and sisters for life, it doesn't apply to the African American students. The school gives you an excellent song & dance to recruit you, but it is totally opposite. RUN QUICKLY and find your child another school!!"

    "I love this school. This school is like my second home. I am going to be a sophomore in the fall of 2013. The teachers are ALWAYS there for help and support. My guidance counselor, T.F (his initials), is always there for me. Dean P. is always there to talk to. All the teachers here are approachable. The students NEVER exclude you. The academics are challenging, but it is challenging us for the future. Also, I love being challenged. There are SO many ways to be active throughout the school. I highly recommend this school to family, friends, neighbors, citizens, etc. I love Marist High School and I'm proud to be a part of the Marist Community. GO REDHAWKS!"

    "My son graduated from here and wishes he went somewhere else. The school got too big. He got involved and was on some very good sports teams but didnt get much playing time. Academics were good, but not great. The one or two classes he didnt do that well in, he got very little support. I teach at a public school and sent my son to Marist to keep him away from trouble makers, which he did. But I wish (and so does he) that he would of went to a smaller private school. I feel that Marist is kind of like a diploma factory. The faculty and staff werent that friendly and the administrators were borderline arrogant. The principal doesnt care about individuals and will only speak to you if you are a big booster or an active alumni."
