Cathedral High School Reviews

Cathedral is a home to me. I have had an amazing experience attending the school. From the day I applied they have welcomed me with opem arms. I have made life long connection with students, teachers, and friends. The teachers are incredible. One of my favorite things about cathedral is they accommodate everyone at different levels to fit your needs best. The other thing I enjoy is the family atmosphere I feel there. We have so many traditions that make attending school more enjoyable. There are many opportunities for every to participate and to get involved in the school. Everyone I know is proud to say they are a part of the Irish family. I would highly recommend this school to anyone with academic or athletic aspirations.

Cathedral is aplace where you can escape the world and just be yourself. For me, it’s like a second family. Even just wearing a shirt on the street people will stop you and say, “You go to Cathedral? My blank went there.” Blank would range from friend to family friends to distant cousins, even to friends of friends. You make life longs connections that are there to last. The academics there are also prestigious. The teachers are prepared, and always ready to help whenever they are free. I only have a few complaints. Certain rules are not always enforced which ends up reflecting poorly on the school as a whole. Second, food is not healthy. Sure, we have our salad bar and the home cooked meals. However, the salad bar is usually not filled with lettuce and the food is to expensive to spend money on fruits or veggies. Cathedral as a whole is amazing. However, like any school there is room to improve.
Cathedral is a great school with teachers who care deeply for their students. There are tons of activities, clubs and sports for students! Great preparation for college
