Divine Child High School Reviews

I've been at the Divine Child community since second grade. In 2013, I entered 9th grade at Divine Child High School. From the start, I was pretty comfortable. Having some peers who I had known since I was 6 was nice. Yet, being such a small school, I got to become close to those who I've never met before. Almost any student or faculty at DCHS will tell you the community is fantastic. We are truly a family. I appreciate the tightness within our school. This flows into the academics aspect of Divine Child. Because the teacher-student, student-student and teacher-teacher relationships are so well bonded, learning has taken a level of intimacy not found in over-sized public schools. Also, being a private Catholic school, DCHS is held to a higher moral standard. I think it has upheld that standard throughout my time here, and would like to think that has personally made me a better person. Once a Falcon, always a Falcon!

I like most things about Divine Child High School. The teachers, for example, take time out of their day to come in early or stay after school to help you learn. The entire administration as a whole creates a comfortable and safe environment for all students, and that is something I really appreciate. Not all schools have such caring and devoted people that really want to help their students in school and in life. Divine Child High School is not only a school, but also a community; a community where everyone is welcomed. The moment you walk in, you are greeted with this feeling of content, and you can see this throughout all of the classrooms. Overall, I believe that DCHS is truly the best high school I know.
Going to Divine Child was a very good experience for me academically and socially. There are opportunities for everyone to get involved in clubs, music, or sports, and there are a variety of courses that allow one to pursue their academic goals and/or personal interests. I, personally, spent four years in the marching band and participated in each year's musicals, which included Phantom of the Opera and Beauty and the Beast, and had a lot of fun in the Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, and Pit Orchestra. I will also graduate having taken 10 AP courses and having earned college credit for those courses. Overall, it was the right choice for me and I would recommend Divine Child.
