    It makes me so sad to hear of other people's negative experiences in High School because I enjoyed Mater Dei Catholic High School so much! From the beginning of freshman year to the day I graduated senior year I made so many life long friends and gained not only such great education on subjects but exceptional information on what career path to take after High School. I can remember every single teacher I came into contact with because they all left such a memorable mark on my spirit by always encouraging me to succeed and helping me to do so.

    Mater Dei Catholic High School is an excellent school that offers top notch academics in newly built, high-quality facilities. I have had a wonderful experience with all of the teachers, administrators and staff. Each of them truly care for and about the students and only want to see their students succeed in the classroom and in life. I highly recommend this school!
    A high school that not only teaches their students’ academic material but also teaches students how to be good and give their best at whatever they try. This high school really changes my perspective on life. First, their resources are always available, if a student is facing any kind of situation, the school is open for whatever the student is going through. Second, their education is at its best. The material the teachers provide is super complete and full of knowledge. Teachers are very passionate about their topics, which makes students want to learn and participate. Third, but not least, their people. Almost every person that goes to Mater Dei Catholic either to study, work, and visit, is full of joy, happiness, and radiate positivity. This school is a perfect place to spend 4 years of your life, and create the best memories you’ll ever have.
