Mater Dei High School Reviews

I am thankful for Mater Dei High School because of the college readiness I have developed through my high school career. As a Catholic, Mater Dei is considered a home, where I can grow in faith with my peers. I have the ability the form new connections through the faculty and staff. Mater Dei is very successful as a whole and individual students are pushed to succeed in the classroom and in the community. I would like to see more diversity in the halls. The faculty and students are extremely welcoming to newcomers. Multiple Mater Dei families have hosted a forgein exchange student through a whole year of schoolingand this program is growing.

As freshmen at Mater Dei, I haven't been here as long as the seniors. For the time I have been here I can tell you a few things. They prepare you for what you need in college. As freshmen right now, we have already started to talk about college. The environment is smaller around 156 kids in your grade or less, not as big as a public school. I would have to say that diversity is not the best, I would like to see it change in the future. I would recommend Mater Dei for any students looking for a Catholic high school and a friendly environment.
I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of Mater Dei High School. These past four years have changed my life. I am part of the Dance Marathon Executive Committee, Service Club, Pep Club, Fresh Beginnings, the Tennis Team, and I Volunteer at Toys for Tots!
