Archbishop Edward McCarthy High School Reviews

Archbishop has created an environment for students that no other school can do. My overall experience at Archbishop has been the best. I couldn't imagine going through high school at any other school. Archbishop makes you feel safe and protected with strict security and enforcement of rules. Archbishop has also created a fun environment with the countless pep rally, basketball and football games and Homecoming week! The academics at Archbishop have been a huge reason why I continued my high school years at Archbishop. They solely focus on college readiness and each year graduate all their seniors.

McCarthy was a fun experience, it could be very rigorous academically for people in the “excelsior” program but it was worth it all the same. The college readiness factor depends on the person. The resources to do well in the application field are there but it takes a lot of will and self-pushing to go through with all the extra work. You’re not pushed as much as you’re supposed to be regarding college readiness, but as I said before, the resources are there. The food is mediocre, they provide Pizza, Nuggets, and Wraps, but they hardly provide one with a good nutrition. All in all, the school is above average in most regards, I recommend it for anyone looking for long lasting friendships and a challenging curriculum.
Archbishop McCarthy High School is an incredible school, however it lacks some classes that one may be interested in (especially AP and higher level classes). It also limits some of your class selection which is taken up by a theology course for the four years. Although Archbishop lacks in these aspects, it still does an incredible job in college preparation. Teachers are varied in quality here. Teachers for AP and Honors level classes are usually very capable and qualified. Although there are many faults to McCarthy, it truly encapsulates the meaning of being a Maverick.
