Academy of the Holy Names Reviews

My time at Holy Names was very stressful to look back on due to lack of support from the school administration. Students are overloaded with work and are not provided with a good teaching system, with the exception of a few. It was evident that more time, money, and effort from the school was spent on advertising and renovations, rather than the academics and school environment. Additionally, issues regarding mental health, bullying, and academics were either not addressed or handled poorly.

I really enjoy the class sizes, which makes the learning experience extremely inclusive and students are able to do much more hands-on learning. Obviously with any high school there will be students you don't get along with, but I can confidently say I'll be friends with many of these girls for a long time. Administration at the school has been working hard to update the building, athletic programs are wonderful, and I have yet to meet a teacher not working with their students' best interest at heart.
AHN gave me an amazing high school experience. I received a lot of attention and one on one help from teachers who really helped me succeed. I loved attending a Catholic school and I wore my uniform proudly. However, it lacked the advantages of a school with proper funding. It was difficult for my last few years there for there to be a consistent (and completely filled) teaching staff with a small selection of classes. It made taking some of the advanced classes I wanted to hard because I had to seek online or summer classes to do so.
