This school definitely prepared me for college! My high school experience definitely taught me how to get into a study routine and time manage so by the time I reached college, it was a breeze for me while others fell behind. The school environment is amazing and bullying is less prevalent than if I would have attended a co-ed school. Students are assigned a "big sister" as freshmen similarly to a sorority and attend regular retreats which are always great for bonding with other classmates. Best four years of my life!

Unless your daughter is placed into the "elite" Bernadette program as a freshman, she'll have to fight for her place in the honors or AP classes alone with no help or support from the school.
Administration caters to the top tier students and If your daughter is coming from a "non feeder" school, they will put her in the lowest classes regardless of her elementary school records, grades or teachers recommendations.
The administration department always support their teachers, even in cases when the whole class is falling (this happens very often). They'll never accept any mistake or wrongdoing and will put your girl down to protect their staff or their reputation.
While prestigious schools proud themselves of their "holistic" approach to evaluate, place, and eventually support their students, Lourdes Academy is heading on the opposite direction.
Regardless of the fact the my daughter landed in a "good" college, I will never recommend this school to anyone.
Academically, Lourdes was a good school. What is disturbing about the school is the how the teachers allow for a culture of creating cliques and picking favorites. While I was there I consistently witnessed a girl in the locker next to me get bullied and made fun of. There were also plenty of classmates that singled others out for their looks or personalities. It’s like the movie Mean Girls but on a much larger scale. Many times I was excluded from activities from the teachers themselves – I wasn’t able to go to Christmas Formal my senior year because they "ran out of tickets." Prom? You needed to bring a male date. I asked to be put in Yearbook (I was in Yearbook in my previous school) and a teacher said it "didn’t fit with my schedule." Parties with sex, drugs and alcohol were rampant – and some teachers even liked talking about the parties with students or making jokes about them.
