Cardinal Newman High School Reviews

Cardinal Newman is true to their goal, which is for us to prepare us for college. From the first day, the teachers welcomed us with open arms and were very helpful. The classes are very challenging and intense but they are not impossible. The teaching staff is always there to help if we have any questions, which makes the classes easy to understand. The guidance office is also a great asset to this school. My guidance counselor helped me out s lot in the process of applying to colleges. She helped me with small questions about the COMMON APP, the SSAR, and many other small questions that I had. No matter how much I annoyed her she would always help me. There really isn’t anything that o would change about the school, but I would recommend that they get a better food program. The people who work at the cafeteria are very nice, so I wouldn’t say that they are the problem. The actual food is very good and there isn’t much to choose from. Aside from that I wouldn’t change a thing.

I enjoy the academic rigor of Cardinal Newman. There is also a very strong alumni base that supports at all sports games and fundraisers, and is very prevalent among the community. Newman is very small, which could be a benefit as class sizes are smaller. However, due to its nature, the school is very outdated, with old buildings, bathrooms, and lacks proper air conditioning.
Everyone’s experience is different, mine was alright. What I think of cnhs, the education is definitely better. And there are somethings you wouldn’t learn anywhere else, and all the teachers genuinely care about you.
