Cistercian Preparatory School Ratings & Reviews

July 03, 2019 Submitted by a parent
A very good Catholic formation environment, but there is bullying going on there. Collective punishment is used, which helps no one, and the boys learn to coopt into what is being sold without question. Code of silence type environment. Not for young boys.

Wonderful preparatory environment for young and teenage boys. The concept of a form-master (all the way through graduation) is a rare demonstration of a formation mentality. The school's unique nature with monks having active teaching duties, while being spiritually present to offer real-life example of inclusiveness, humility, and integrity, is a lasting legacy. Parents are naturally very involved but the school administration does not differentiate attention given to the students based on the size of the parents' annual donation. It's also very refreshing among private schools that beyond the annual tuition, your son can participate in any school-hosted/-managed sport and field activity at no incremental cost requirement. Great teachers, amazingly smart/capable kids, lots of homework, but also opportunity for a young boy to learn time-management skills and build personal confidence from the early years (5th grade).

Thre are reported cases of bullying at Cistercian. Also, in the past some students have been humiliated by their form masters. In their application package you can see that their SAT scores are ok (in the 600s) but they have gradually been declining in the last few years. In their application package they ask what your religion is, church you attend and baptism information. If your child is not a member of a catholic church, baptized, or your child doesn't go to some of the catholic feeder schools in Dallas then it's very difficult for the applicant to get accepted here. On the good side, this school teaches Latin for the full 8 years program which no other school I know offers, and it's particularly strong in religion (subject taught by the monks from the abbey).

"We have 2 boys at Cistercian and cannot say enough about the rigorous education and, more importantly, supportive environment. To describe it as outstanding would be an understatement. The school works tirelessly to foster respectful relationships between the students. Many hours are spent on character development. I am always struck by how polite and respectful the boys are. The teachers are also incredible, e.g., the 7th and 8th grade math teachers are accessible, helpful PhDs. Our sons have a lot of interest in their subjects -- primarily because of their teachers' infectious enthusiasm. The families are open, down-to-earth, and family focused. The boys enjoy school, feel like they have many new ""brothers"" as classmates, and have incredible, honorable mentors as teachers and Form Masters. Cistercian is an excellent school; we feel so fortunate to be a part of the community."

"Incredible formation but like another reader said, the pressure is too much and there is bullying. We were warned by a parent at another all-boy school in Dallas that told us: ""if I could go back and do it all again I would never put my son through that kind of pressure again"". They left the school as so did we and others. Some classes lose more than others but our son was MISERABLE in 5th and 6th grades. As soon as we left, he loved having a life again. You have to think of your child's passions and talents, not just the ""name"" of the school or where we want them to graduate from. Amazing parents and community as mentioned in other comments. The bullying here was much higher than other schools we've had all our children in combined. Enough said."
