    We chose Chaminade College Preparatory School for our children, because of it's well rounded curriculum, focus on character education/values, diverse extracurricular opportunities, athletic programs, amazing teachers and principal! Our family has felt connected to the school since our younger son set foot on campus 3 years ago. There is a sense of warmth and community, that you do not find at every school. Additionally, Chamiande fosters academic, social and emotional growth, and identifies each student's individual needs. We absolutely love Chaminade and all it has to offer!

    Chaminade is a very academically challenging school that ultimately prepares students very well for their future as a college student. Not only are the teachers fantastic, the clubs are very diverse and student involvement on campus is very blatant around the school. It's truly an incredible High School!
    Chaminade College Preparatory highschool was 3.5/5 star experience

    academics: They have very exploratory teachers in classes. Teachers often asked questions that help students be interactive and contemplative. Most teachers are very qualified to teach and my overall education was good. Although Chaminade has issues with students going in higher levels classes (such as outside summer school classes or dual college enrollment programs). You have to take the class at the school in order for it to count. Both teachers and students have tried to change this policy.

    Social feel: In a small school (everyone knows each other for 3-7 years) cliques are expected to form. These cliques (like most other schools) are usually formed by clubs or similar classes so if your kid goes into a club, he/she should be fine. Although, these groupings get more and more clique as years go by and in the end if you don't like feeling boxed in or want more mobility with groups, i suggest a bigger school.
