Catholic High School Reviews

Catholic High has nurtured me over the past four years and has helped to develop me into the better man I believe I am today. Coming into Catholic, myself and many others around me were stuck-up, expecting everything from the world and offering nothing in return. The positive community based around the principles of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and nurtured by staff members and students alike has changed my mindset and made me feel welcome. In addition to the exemplary community, Catholic High has an outstanding education. I am confident that Catholic High will continue to be there for me when I graduate.

Because Catholic High is still a high school full of young students, it has its problem just as every school will. Also due to the high expectations imposed on Catholic High students, some teachers will forget that their students are still young and learning and will react severely to small mistakes and will be critical of students that struggle with making good decisions.

Best four years of my life. The teachers and administration look after each student as if they were their own children, and you form a deep bond of brotherhood with your classmates. All of this in a Catholic environment, with top-notch sports, and quality education, make CHS a school worth going to. It's more than 4, it's a lifetime!
Wonderful school. Excellent staff. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at CHS. The teachers really pressured me into expanding my world view. I learned about ethics and morality. I was able to graduate from CHS into a more mature, free thinking young man.
