Father Gabriel Richard High School Reviews

Both of my elder brothers attended FGR, and filled my head with all sorts of horror stories about the school, as older brothers do. But from the very first day, it felt like home. Each staff member and teacher had nothing but the greatest possible amount of care for each student, always willing to make time, never short or angry. It was an environment that both prepared one for college and their academic future, while encouraging students to branch out in sports and service within their own community. School Spirit came not only from love of each other and one's academic peers, but from love of the school itself, and its staff that ensures it to be one of its alumni's most fond memories. If there were one thing I personally could change, it would be to increase funding for the drama department. The drama club and choir are very well rounded out with participants, but not gifted with much space.

Overall I was very disappointed with what FGR had to offer, limited classes, activities, and electives with other obvious downsides related to being a small Catholic school. Going in as a freshman I was thrilled to be continuing my education academically and religiously. But when I started it was something very different-instead of us having open conversations about faith related topics, theology class was more or less an hour of being informed of the rules and beliefs that are "mandatory" to be a true Catholic. Shocked, and very disappointed we continuously heard about how wrong and evil things were trying to poison our mind. In addition the extremely disrespectful student handbook where things such as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgenderism etc. were stated as disorders and were guaranteed to not be recognized as anything more than that. My short experience with this school was miserable and would not be recommended to anyone open-minded in the slightest.
Father Gabriel Richard truly has prepared me for college. The emphasis on critical thinking and more practical learning sets it apart from many other high schools. The majority of the teachers are really excellent and know how to teach the curriculum. There are some teachers that are less than stellar, but that can be expected from any school. FGR instructs students on how to be disciples of Jesus, and the staff have a commitment to God.
