Messmer Catholic Schools Reviews

I am currently a junior at Messmer Catholic High School. I actually like Messmer unlike most of my peers. Messmer is very rigorous and challenging and only the strong and dedicated will prosper. I also love Messmer because it allowed me to reunite my relationship with God and continuously strengthen it with prayer service ever Wednesday. My only concern with Messmer is that they aren’t helpful to students that need extra support. Way too many people have below a 2.5 in this school and that’s accredited to Messmer’s grading scale. Overall, I think Messmer is a nice school for kids that actually want to go to college and have a relationship with God.

During my time at Messmer schools, I would say they provide everything that you may need to be successful in life and in school. The teachers are excellent, they take time out of their personal lives to come in earlier mornings, and late nights to make sure their students will be successful. Messmer High School is very diverse, and everyone feels welcomed when entering a Messmer School. Messmer High School is a great school for preparing you for college curriculum.
I like how they prepare you for college, but at the same time I feel like the work shouldn't be so hard so we could be qualified to even attend the college of our choice. I also feel like the school shouldn't be so strict as school is hard enough as it is. I do not like the fact that Seniors have to write a 10 page paper in order to graduate when most of the Seniors I've seen have failed the paper. I feel like it is too stressful for Seniors especially when they have to search for colleges and scholarships and on top of that, try to keep their grades up. On the good side I do like most of the teachers. You can really tell some of them know what they're doing. I like the security of our school and sometimes the lunch we are provided.
