Luke M. Powers Catholic High School Reviews

After graduating from Powers Catholic, I (and 23 of my classmates) went on to study at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor. I have had college classes where I was the only non-valedictorian/salutatorian in the section and I felt better prepared than they were. At Powers, I took as many honors classes as possible, played varsity sports (and won a state championship), was involved in the music programs, did one school play, and participated in a number of other clubs and activities. I can't imagine having a better high school experience!

Powers Catholic had an interesting dynamic has it was filled with students with families of high, middle, and low socioeconomic status. This provided a wide ranged environment with different perspectives on political issues, along with a catholic education. Catholicism is taught to everyone as a class, but we also had an all school mass once a week. This provided a common ground for catholic students and non-catholic students to come together, or to separate themselves from their faith. This is one of the things I found that should be changed. Catholicism is put on so heavily in this school, kids tend to flee from this religion by the time they graduate. Another, is to tone down the politics at school. Normally, we wear uniforms. Unfortunately, a common theme day for spirit weeks and sports games is “USA Day” which brings a HUGE divider between the students. It has become inappropriate as it has brought great tention to the students, and faculty for not doing anything about it.
Powers Catholic High School is the best school in Genesee County. Whether it comes to making friends, being involved in extracurriculars, or just having fun, Powers has everything. With regard to the most important part of high school, academics, Powers has state-of-the-art technology backed by exceptional teachers. If you want your children to succeed, send them to Powers Catholic High School. The only thing that prevents a 5-star rating, is the lunch menu. It's good sometimes, but it needs improvement. However, if your child takes his own lunch, that makes it a 5-star school!
