Cardinal Mooney High School Reviews

I previously gave the school a 3 star rating but after reflecting more on my experience at Mooney, I realize that I wasn't focusing on the positives. The administration & discipline has taken a sharp decline in recent years;But if you look past this, the school is exceptional. All teachers have your best interest in mind & are highly skilled. Everyone's treated fairly, athletes are not prioritized like some say. The best part of Mooney is the students; Mooney is both racially & economically diverse. This allowed me to make friends from many backgrounds that I probably would have never talked to at a public school. No matter your background, all students from every clique will embrace you at Mooney unlike other schools; I heard of no bullying occurring during my 4 years. Though I'd love to complain about the administration for hours, looking back at the diverse and welcoming group of students at Mooney(& amazing teachers)I can't help but be thankful for being part of the Mooney Family!

I loved my experience at Cardinal Mooney and I was glad I was able to attend there. The bonding of students from various racial backgrounds is amazing! I have met so many friends and I hope to keep those friendships beyond my high school years. I believe the academics at Mooney are top-notch. I set high expectations for myself and have met one of my goals by being inducted into The National Honor Society. There are also many clubs to join, activities, and sports. Also, I volunteer outside of the school, through the clubs, youth group, and on my own. There is something for everyone at Cardinal Mooney and one would feel very welcomed there.
Overall my experience at Cardinal Mooney High School has been pretty good. There are some highs and lows, but overall we have good a good administration and a great school body. If there was anything I would change it would just be the issues that we focus on, making sure that everyone feels equal and important in their school. We have a saying that we are a Mooney Family and over the the years I have found that statement to be one hundred percent true!
