Cardinal Hayes High School Reviews

Overall, Cardinal Hayes High School was an establishment that taught me what it means to "enter a boy, a leave a man." From the strict discipline to the vast amount of extra curricular activities, Hayes has truly shaped me into the man I am today. One of most vivid memories of Cardinal Hayes High School was the memorial service for our late peer, Delano Cowan, who died at the tender age of 16. This service truly embodied the power of brotherhood from the boundless amount of emotions displayed to the comfort that was instilled between one another. Till this day, the feelings shared on this day are vivid and still reside within me. Hayes has truly taught me what it means to be my "brother's keeper" and how my voice is not one, but speaks for all of my Hayes brothers. I wouldn't trade my Hayes experience for anything else because it's shaped me into the young I am today and continue striving to be.

The thing that makes Cardinal Hayes stand out among many other high schools is the student-teacher relationships that develop in the school. The faculty is full of young and determined teachers that demonstrate so much passion for the areas that they teach. Overall, though the administration can also sometimes be outdated and biased when it comes to their principals and values, the benefits that Cardinal Hayes offers outweigh any negatives by far. The faculty at Hayes is truly lovely as they have so much care towards their students and it is obvious that they really love their job, even despite their low wages that they get being that they teach at a Catholic high school. I have absolutely cherished my 4 years at Hayes due to the brotherhood I have formed with my classmates and the relationships that I have formed with teachers that I consider to be role models who embody values that I wish to carry on through my adulthood.
Cardinal Hayes High School had to be the worst experience of my life. Being situated in towards the front of a large borough known for it's violence, to the point where police had to be situated in our school, i had the most uncomfortable and unsafe 4 years. The worst part about CHHS were the faculty. Alot of the teachers have a very bad superiority complex, and will issue detention for anything they see imaginable. Teachers will find any excuse to give you detention and the kids never seem to get better. The rules are also insanely restricting. If their is anything I want to see changed in this school, i would like to see a loosening on the grip of the abnormal rules. There is no use for such a primitive rule set when every school around us is in bewilderment when we bring up the specifications. I want to give less power to teachers, as i feel that most of the time they can be an unreliable source of justice (and education) that the Deans will always view as right.
