Cardinal Newman High School Reviews

I am currently a high school senior at Cardinal Newman High School. My senior year will be a year I will remember for the rest of my life, for a couple of reasons. First, in October of 2017, wildfires raged through Santa Rosa and burned down the majority of Cardinal Newman. What not only helped my personal experience with this tragedy but also shocked me was how well the Cardinal Newman community could adapt. Instead of closing school, the community opened off cites for the students where we continued our learning. After three long months, Cardinal Newman's campus was ready to hold the entire student body again. This adaptability of the school, and the care from the faculty towards the students was what turned a horrible tragedy into a life lesson. The strength of Cardinal Newman's community amazed me and allowed for my experience with the school to be great.

I really like how involved everyone is in making the school better! The teachers, administration, parents and students really care about the school.
CN is an amazing resilient community, which was truly exemplified after our community faced horrific fires in October. Half of our school was destroyed by the fires, which resulted in all grades to be divided up into satellite locations for 3 months. The outpouring of support we received from our peers, teachers, parents & community was overwhelming and helped lift us up and remain hopeful. Be great if our Sports Banquet got a change up to be more exciting.
