Father Lopez Catholic High School Reviews

78 reviews
All Categories
Attending Father Lopez has been a very average experience. It has fallen short of a 'college preparatory' school. Until a very recent turnover, there has been little to no guidance on college applications and preparation. The sports involvement is average, some clubs are engaging, and the academics are mediocre. Many teachers are talented and work to help students, but some have little to no motivation to do so. The tuition listed doesn't take into account the monumental cost of uniforms, textbooks, and extra activities. Many students transfer to public high schools in the area and find the same - or better - experience compared to Father Lopez.

Many of the teachers clearly care about their students and are well-qualified to teach, but I think the administration is not the best. The number of fantastic educators they have failed to retain within the school community (with a historically high-turnover rate) speaks to their issues. I think that the focus should be more on providing a holistic education that meets the needs of EVERY STUDENT rather than catering only to some. As well, I must say that I was not prepared to manage the academic rigors of college (specifically in writing well and science courses such as chemistry and biology).
Father Lopez Catholic High School is a private institution which prepares the student for college. Overall, the school offers challenging academic courses for different levels of students. That is, from regular course of studies to the more advanced AP and Dual Enrollment courses. Either path will prepare your student for college. There are also many student activities that your student can join in; from athletics to social clubs, allowing the student to be fully engaged in the Green Wave experience.

Overall, I had a great four years lettering in golf and weightlifting and more importantly learning how to make the world a better place. I also was able to keep a high GPA allowing me to be inducted into the National Honor Society. It also prepared me for the college application process. I was successfully accepted at every college that I applied to!
The only downside at FLCHS would be their cafeteria. They need to improve it.
