I love the kindness and the friendly environment in the school. My teacher was very nice that he stayed late passed their working hour to teach me more about Chemistry and Biology. The sports program in the school is also very good. They have Junior Encounter program every year where all of the junior take a trip into a forest. It was a fantastic experience for me to eat, sleep, pray, play and laugh with all of my friends. Not to mention that I was an international student so it was very friendly of them to let me join their group of friend.
I would love to see more change in the science department as well as other STEM-related fields like robotics and engineering. The school just open its first introduction to engineering class this year and hope to further expand in the STEM field. The food selling at lunch was junk but you can always pack your own food.

Blanchet Catholic School is a very excellent high school. This private school has the perfect ideal classroom size, allowing many one- on- one time with students and teachers. The education is very complex and rigorous, making the students prepare for college. And lastly the staff and teachers are warm and welcoming to everyone at the school. Their desire to teach is shown in many ways.
My experience was very good. I met many life long friends. It is truly a family style community. I do not regret going to Blanchet, however the school spirit atmosphere is strongly lacking. Everyone is in support of you and wants you to succeed. Most of the sports coaches were parents and/or teachers so it was a very close nit community. My graduating class was only 51 kids which came with many benefits. I was given a lot of attention as well as a positive high school experience.
