Cardinal Ritter College Prep High School Reviews

To me personally, Cardinal Ritter will always have a very special place in my heart. The environment is very family-like. The teachers often form unbreakable bonds with their students and usually wants what's best for us. Students and teachers at Cardinal Ritter may have disagreements as any student and teacher does, but we know in the end it's always going to work out for the better of our future. There are not many schools like Cardinal Ritter, where you can just come and be loved and helped genuinely by the faculty, administration as well as peers like you do here. The atmosphere makes us suitable for success.

I have been at my school all four years of high school and I love it! I have grown to make many live life friend and unforgettable memories. With the school being so small, it is much like a family. The staff and administration are there when you need to talk or when you just need that extra push. Even if you are not exceeding in your classwork like you want to, they are there to help you. Teachers take the time out of their day to stay with you after school, before school, during their planning period and when we have what we call "family". Family is a period during the day where all grades are mixed and divided into what we call families. During this time we are able to bond with the students and teachers. We often have activities during family where we play games, decorate the classroom doors for the holidays, and sometimes just study. All in all Cardinal Ritter is a great learning environment for students to both learn and feel comfortable.
Cardinal Ritter was a great school for me, the teachers and staff were very friendly and looked out for your best interests. They try to build a family harmony and community within the school in order to have all its students and alums feel welcomed anytime they walk through the doors entering the building. Unfortunately, the diversity in the school is pretty low, yet that is kind of expected as it is primarily populated with African-American students. Hopefully this changes and I would to see them have more students of different colors and backgrounds joined into the Cardinal Ritter family.
