Divine Child High School Reviews

Divine Child High School functions as a second home for me, in a sense. Because I attended the grade school in addition to the high school, I was virtually raised on the campus. I must say that Divine Child has taught me so much over the years that I've attended. But, I must also mention that the relationships between people have not always been satisfactory. Sometimes situations among students are not handled with the care and respect that they deserve. In other cases, these sensitive issues are swept away entirely. This has had an extreme negative effect on all students involved.

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 loved the academics and the classes. Each teacher takes time and dedication to work with each student. The classes are challenging, but prepare students for college and future success. I would like to see the athletic coaches change because they are average to below average. The teams are decent, but the coaching could definitely improve. I personally would recommend this school if you are looking for a challenge and looking to be prepared for college.
