Archbishop McNicholas High School Reviews

Simply put, McNick is a special place. There are countless examples that illustrate the special nature of the McNick experience. From the school-wide celebratory mass introducing the freshman class, to the challenging yet rewarding academics, to Friday night games, to ultimately being a part of an inclusive, caring community – the experience at McNick is special. After his first “Boom Chicka Boom” celebration, where all players, coaches, cheerleaders, and fans of Rocket football gather post-game to sing in victorious celebration, our son came up to us and said, “Mom and Dad, I made the best decision I could have made in coming to school at McNick.”

A person's 4 years in high school are forever etched into their memory. The 4 years of high school are so important and formative - academically, socially, athletically, and spiritually. McNick provides the right environment and culture to help kids springboard from adolescence into adulthood.

I really appreciated the openness I felt at McNick since my Freshman year. It can be hard when you start high school, but McNick isn't a big school and everyone starts to become family. I made some great friends and created some of the best memories. I know that I can always look back and appreciate my experience and friends I made. I specifically enjoyed playing football at McNick because of my coaches and teammates. We definitely aren't the biggest or the best, but everyone plays for each other and that's because of the opportunity our coaches showed us. McNick has been a great experience and has more than enough to offer. From retreats to academics to sporting events, this is a very good school. Obviously there is always something that can be improved, but McNick is in a great spot and is always moving forward.
I have two kids with very different interests that are both at McNick. One is an athlete and the other is artistic and creative. One is quiet and doesn't like a lot of attention. One loves to be in front of a crowd and is very proud of his faith. I can honestly say they both love their McNick experiences. Our experience with the entire McNick community -teachers, students, parents, families has been wonderful. Our senior got into the college he wanted with an excellent scholarship. He has developed his faith beyond expectation. He teaches us things all the time. Kairos was an experience that will stay with him forever. Our freshmen has bonded with his fellow athletes and surprises us everyday with things he learns at school both socially and academically. I would highly recommend McNicholas for any child. A community of families, students, and teachers that want to help others and happy in others achievements.
