Mater Dei High School Reviews

Mater Dei is a very unconventional school. But that is its greatest aspect. Mater Dei creates a family atmosphere for every student and cares greatly for the students' education. The school also has a swath of great Extracurriculars to participate in. Not only do we have some of the best sports in the Evansville area, we have some of the finest fine arts. The Marching Wildcats have performed at the State Marching Band competition for the past 10 years. However Mater Dei still doesn't have classes that cater towards trade careers and lacks some more exotic classes.

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.
I would not trade my time at Mater Dei High School for anything. I learned not only the academic knowledge required for a diploma but also how to show respect. Throughout my four years, I was pushed by my teachers, developing lifelong study habits and work ethic. I was pushed to succeed and I owe part of my accomplishments to the educators who believed I could achieve more than I thought I could. Every staff member, whether a teacher or a lunch lady, cares about your success and wellbeing. I felt I could talk to any employee and that they would point me in the right direction or take me to someone who could.
