Delone Catholic High School Reviews

Delone Catholic High School is a wonderful place to prepare for collage and life in general. With excellent teachers and engaging classes, you'll never find yourself in a drag. If you are ever in need of assistance, there is no shortage in resources. Sports, especially football, are activities that are a major part of the school and are key in socialization whether it be actually joining the sport or going to games or matches. However, while there are some clubs and activities, that's an aspect that could be improved upon.

Furthermore, there are many opportunities that are most certainly available to those who wish for them, which is unavailable at many schools especially in the area.

At Delone Catholic, you will feel safe, happy and above all, apart of something great. The students and faculty are widely kind accepting of people from all walks of life. Therefore, anyone considering enrolling at Delone shouldn't hesitate in doing so!

I attended for 4 years & since then the school has had many changes, whether that is in faculty, facilities, sports, & academics. As a result, Delone Catholic has seen a revival in school pride; it has opened itself up to the community in order to improve. Teachers are approachable & want to see students succeed. The school has seen renovations under the Diamond Decade Initiative. The music department is excellent. Since I have come in they offer opportunities for students to get financial aid, tour the school, & events beyond Shadow Day like sports matches & theatre productions. My time here has been up & down overall. Admins have gotten better (especially w/ communication) but they are disorganized & don’t always pick their battles well. The teachers can be rude. Resources & activities can be limited. Students are friendly but can be clique-y & obnoxious. There’s been favoritism shown to students who are wealthy and/or athletic, but that has decreased since new admins have come.
This is an terrific high school. The community and family atmosphere make it a comfortable place to go to daily. The teachers care about the students, but also expect a lot from them. No excuses! Teens definitely need more of that now. The world we live in is full of people giving excuses and not being responsible for themselves and their actions. Delone holds each student, teacher and staff member accountable for their actions good or bad. You will feel and be rewarded for exceptional attitude, religious behavior, academics, sports, music, art, and leadership. The rules can be strict, but important for developing character, respect and strength. Definitely recommend this school, especially after working throughout the area in many different public schools. This is a well-rounded education, but it's more than an exceptional academic education, it's a life education.
