Catholic Memorial High School Reviews

The first three years here have been the most amazing experience. I love coming here every day and how good the teachers are at preparing us for college. There are always lots of people here to put a smile on your face every day. The caring nature here as well as the faith connection is so amazing and I am very proud to be a Crusader! Also, the strong emphasis on the fact that this school is a living memorial to the members of the Waukesha community who serve and have served for our country. I am always very proud of what we stand for as a school.

The teachers are exceptional and they care for not only each student's education, but their well-being also. The entire experience is very faith based and there are some classes that focus on Catholicism more than others, but it is all in moderation. The variety of classes is very good and there are many fields of study for all students to explore no matter their interests. The homework load is doable, and the athletic programs are exceptional, ranging from fencing to soccer to basketball and more of course. There are also many opportunities for service such as Crusader Day of Service and Service Club. Overall, pretty decent
I was a transfer student half way through my Freshman year. When I came to Catholic Memorial I was very nervous and anxious, but everyone welcomed me with open arms. There are eight values that we hold true to our school. The most important value to us is excellence. This is the most important value because we try our hardest to strive as individuals and as a school. The teachers at CMH push us to be our very best ans only strive for excellence. The one thing I would change about Catholic Memorial is one of our values. Professionalism is a value most seem to cherish but, there is more to a school than being professional. I would change the fact that we have uniforms because it would make it feel more like a learning environment not a business.
