Archbishop Molloy High School Reviews

I love the school spirit and unity present at Molloy and the willingness of teachers to assist students. Additionally, I find that it is easy to get involved with the wide range of activities offered. The Esopus retreats are an especially unique part of the Stanner experience that allows students to make friends as well as engage in self-discovery. However, the school exhibits a very strong acceptance of cliques, with many being formed from before the students enter high school that create an unwelcoming atmosphere in places like the cafeteria. Also, though many teachers are stellar, there are a good number of teachers that really should not be teaching there for their respective reasons and some are extremely inflexible with students. The math department, specifically, is the most unaccomodating part of Molloy's academics with regards to its system and certain teachers. Overall, though Molloy has its flaws, but I've enjoyed my experience and would rate it 3.75-4 stars.

Molloy definitely feels like an inclusive environment where everyone makes friends and has fun without too much of a workload. Teachers are pretty much hit or miss; you'll either get someone really good or horrible. There are lots of clubs and sports that students can participate in, and it's a really easy way to make friends and be part of the school. There is a little lack of diversity; it's mostly rich white Catholic students attending the school but there are also many other minority students as well. I felt like Molloy academics aren't that hard and didn't have too much homework (in my opinion), but at the same time I felt the classes did enough to prepare me for college and without Molloy I probably wouldn't have been accepted to a very prestigious college I'm attending now. There is some racism that goes on within the school, and some teachers show favoritism towards white students. Overall, some things can obviously be fixed but I did have a very good experience at Molloy.
My decision to attend Archbishop Molloy High School is a decision that I will never regret. The atmosphere of the school is fully committed to helping us develop not only as students, but as good people, something that reaches above and beyond what just any high school aims for. Excelling both academically and athletically, “Stanner High” as some refer to it, is a prestigious Catholic High School that does not mandate hours of community service, making it unique and teaching students that service should originate from the desire to help others, not just to fulfill any requirements. Despite this, service volunteer spots are in high demand and fill up quickly. Everyone is always willing to help, whether it be a teacher to a student, student to student, or student to a person outside of the high school community. Most teachers stay afterschool, leaving their classrooms open for helping students. I absolutely love it here!
