Mater Dei Catholic High School Reviews

I love Mater Dei and strongly recommend it to anyone who is considering a faith-based, academically rigorous environment that enables its students to branch out into a myriad of extra-curriculars.
In my sophomore year, I was pulled me out of school for an extended period of time due to medical issues. Thanks to Mater Dei's teachers and administration, I am now a senior on track to graduate with a stellar grade-point average. I was able to remain enrolled in all of my honors classes while maintaining my GPA and understanding of the courses.
Mater Dei has enabled me to explore many opportunities that I would not have been able to participate in, had I enrolled elsewhere. In my senior year, I am a member of various clubs, teams, and organizations and have risen to various leadership roles.
Mater Dei has surrounded me with a welcoming, fostering environment that has shaped my faith, my academics, and my principles.

Mater Dei is a great high school to attend to get you ready for college. Mater Dei gives you the extra push you need to achieve academic success. Mater Dei is constantly updated and becoming a more electronic learning facility. Being a small private high school that has multiple grade schools filtering into the student body helps students to grow socially in many ways including academics and athletics. When you are in grade school each school competes against each other in sports and academics, but when the students get into high school they compete together, and they merge into one great team. At Mater Dei everyone is so friendly and helpful that when you graduate you have more than just college credit and friends, you have a family.
Most of the funds go towards programs such as the football program or towards the aesthetic of the school (i.e. The new commons) rather than go towards things such as the art program. Also, the school leaks when it rains and the bathrooms are outdated (the one stall doesn't have a door). Teachers often make the students teach themselves and (at least in the theology department) say incredibly inflammatory or inappropriate things. Work in progress, to say the least.
