Cathedral High School Reviews

My experience at Cathedral High School was nothing short of a interesting experience, from my middle school days to my senior year I have had many different emotions with this school and very different experiences. However, Cathedral High School has some of the most remarkable teachers that are in my opinion taken for granted. Even in guidance I feel like they are so welcoming down there and I can count on them helping me out. The diversity with the students and the teachers as well is what made me have many fond memories at the school. Unfortunately, now as new administration moves in it seems like no one really enjoys their time at the school anymore which is sad. It hurts that students are suppressed from expressing themselves via crocs or head wear, just because of these rules. Students tend to work better and have a better experience at schools when their individuality isn’t taken away from them.

I went to Cathedral High School for 4 years. Honestly speaking the school is not going to give you the high school experience you dream of it. Cathedral will show you how to respect your elders and help discipline students. The teachers may seem like they just work for their paycheck but they truly do care about the students and will do whatever to help you succeed, only if you try your best because they will notice. If your looking for a high school that goes on field trips, has homecoming... etc then Cathedral isn't the school for you. I will say that Cathedral has given me an interesting experience and I'd would like to thank everyone at Cathedral for that. They have made me the man I am today.
My overall experience at Cathedral high school was good, however I feel like it could have been better. This is said because at Cathedral High school the education is good, but it should be better. I feel like sometimes we are behind other schools which makes me feel really bad about myself. The teachers at the school are really good; there are many teachers in that school who will make a big impact on your life, and they will always be there for you. The school is really good with college readiness because the staff there will really help you with college applications, and also help you to find a college that suits you. It's a very diverse school which really makes me feel comfortable.
