Cardinal Newman High School Reviews

I had attended the same Pre-k-8th grade school. Freshman year was very difficult adjusting to such a diverse group of students and faculty. I found I was very prepared academically, but not as much socially.
Once I found my peer group of creative and musically minded friends, Cardinal Newman helped me develop in all aspects of life.
Can’t say I ever loved going to school. But I’m really happy I stayed at Newman for the foundation in life skills I achieved.

What I liked about Cardinal Newman High School was the challenge of the classes. What I would like to see change are some aspects of the teachers and faculty involving the type of curriculum. Though it is a Catholic school, they take it one step too far. I have seen some teachers force the nonChristian students to participate in the Mass by reading scriptures that do not apply to their faith
Cardinal Newman is an amazing college-prep school. However tradition is more important to administration than hiring capable teachers. Some teachers are amazing, but some are severely lacking. Students are forced to self-teach which is good preparation for college, but unfortunate for students and parents who pay a premium for a "better" education.
