Lourdes High School Reviews

Great school! Cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed attending the school. Teachers have high expectations of the students but are kind, caring, and are good at what they do. I made my transition from a graduating class of 92 to a college with an enrollment of 30,000. Could not have been better prepared. Not as much diversity as the public schools. The athletics and music programs are outstanding as well. Coaches and mentors are sure to put first school and academics before sports practices and games. The administration is supportive and understanding in a variety of ways both for the student on the individual level as well as a community approach.

One of the most valuable aspects of Lourdes High School is our beautiful fine arts facilities. If only the students involved here were more respected! Our athletics department is regularly recognized for achievements and this is where the heart of LHS spirit lies. Additionally, participation in acts of faith is encouraged although very few people are actually Catholic. A few accomplishments that are special to LHS but not recognized as frequently include our amazing marching band and one-act theatre that went to state for the first time in 20+ years my freshman year.
I have loved my experience at Lourdes High School. My Catholic School Education has given me the leadership skills, education, and public speaking skills that I need to succeed in my future. I am thankful for the teachers and administration that I have come to known and grown close with. I love the school spirit and unity that is present in my school and I also love the opportunities it has given me. I have been able to be a part of student council, cheer leading, S.A.D.D., Habitat for Humanity, Campus Ministry, and Yearbook. The only thing I could add to improve Lourdes would be to continue hiring amazing teachers!
