Nazareth Academy High School Reviews

In my opinion, Nazareth Academy is a fine establishment. I've seen most of my classmates transform into a completely different person in the best way possible. After being at Nazareth for four years, I feel as though I've made a second family. I've made lifelong friends because the welcoming environment of my school brought me out of my shell. It not only helped me socially, but also academically. I feel that the level of work and environment at Nazareth has prepared me totally for college. In conclusion, choosing Nazareth was the best decision I've ever made for myself.

Nazareth Academy High School is a college prepatory school for girls with great faculty and staff that really prepare their students for college and beyond. Within the past two years, they changed to block scheduling which has really helped to improve the atmosphere of the school. I for one am doing even better in my academics and have more time for clubs, activities, socializing, and meeting with my teachers and counselors.
The academics at Nazareth Academy High School are great but due to the small enrollment size, there is not a large course selection. While I do feel mostly equipped to attend college, I also feel that I did not write enough papers and essays while at Nazareth. The clubs and activities at Nazareth are very well-organized and parent involvement is good for the most part. The student body is diverse in where they reside in and around the city of Philadelphia and somewhat economically, but certainly not racially. However, school spirit at Nazareth is very fervent and overall, I have very much enjoyed my experience attending Nazareth Academy High School.
