My high school experience has been great so far! This school's academics is intense and as someone who has been on their swim team their athletics are equally great.

There are a lot of clubs you can join (from the Pre-med club to the Outreach club) and you can get really involved at school by becoming part of ASB (student council) and Ambassadors.

All in all, a great school, and I couldn't see myself anywhere else!

Many students get into cliques at the very beginning of freshman year, and often stay fairly exclusive throughout. The atmosphere isn’t welcoming unless you already are in a clique. Students do not apply themselves, even in Honors classes, which ruins it for people who care. The school’s priorities are out of line. The academics are okay, but the arts are lacking. The arts programs (dance, band, art, or theater) are not as important to teachers and admin as athletics are. The band must go to a far away venue for their performances, because there is no auditorium at the school. There is also only one option for musicians, which is to be in the one marching band. It doesn’t give musicians who play a string instrument an option. Lastly, I feel that the administration is not progressive. They enforce arbitrary rules and don’t embrace newer, more liberal social movements.
I absolutely loved my years at ND! Great teachers, great sports, and great family environment. At first I thought it would be a hard switch coming from public school but it wasn't at all. I fit right in. I enjoy going to school and going to all the sporting events. There is crazy amounts of school spirit which I love. The school is getting stricter on the dress code policy now however, which is one negative for me.
