Gehlen Catholic Schools Reviews

I joined Gehlen Catholic my freshmen year. What I love about this school is the family feel it has to it. At Gehlen, teachers really care about you and your well being. I've had teachers individually email me checking in to see if I am doing alright after they've noticed I've had a bad day. The teachers and staff all know me by name and have a special bond with their students that I've never seen before. We are a tight knit community that puts God first. At Gehlen, I have formed a new and personal relationship with God. I've been taught so much I hadn't known before about Jesus and meanings of his teachings here on earth. The religion teachers are focused and hard-working on strengthening our faith and for that I am extremely grateful.
I've been thinking for a while now about something I would want to see change in at Gehlen but I'm afraid I can't come up with anything. Gehlen is amazing and I wouldn't trade it for any other school.Gehlen is my family.

Being a small school, Gehlen is the perfect place to send your kids. The teachers are kind and willing to work with you. They want you to succeed. Sporting events are always fun to attend and even after a loss, athletes are willing to come out and talk to people.
I personally liked the homey atmosphere at Gehlen. Everyone was very welcoming. I liked the numerous fun days throughout the year. I wished that Gehlen offered more college credit classes. I also wished that they offered more classes like home economics.
