Our Lady of the Sacred Heart High School Reviews

My school is a private college prep high school. It has many opportunities for all students to join many different clubs and activities. The teachers are very involved with the school and students. It is a rather small school which has the advantage of a small student -teacher ratio. The teachers are familiar with all of the students and know them all by name. Our school has the most awesome school secretaries!

The last four years I have spent at OLSH have been an interesting time. Coming in as a freshman I felt as though I was adequately integrated into the high school scene, but this integration pretty quickly faded and I found myself working and achieving through my own merit as opposed to being catered to all of the time. This has proven to be useful because personal drive has led me to succeed in standardized tests, applications, etc. There is a variety of well-equipped teachers and seemingly under-prepared teachers, in whose class again one must have the drive to teach themselves. Athletics were competitive and enjoyable, as well as the club opportunities the school has to offer. Some of the administration and staff seemed as though they did not help much, nor did I necessarily feel entirely prepared for my college search, for their preparation presentations came far too late to be of substantial use.
It's been two years since I attended OLSH. I look back with only the fondest memories of the experiences I had and sincerest affections for the faculty and staff. The opportunities provided by this school are of such high quality and applicability. Myself I didn't realize how much OLSH helped me until college, where at Allegheny College (known for historically low GPAs) I carry a 3.94 and am ranked first in the class. Without OLSH's rigorous and individualized preparation, I assuredly would not be where I am today.

That being said there are annoyances, mine mostly with the sexism biased against male students, but this is minor and not worse than anywhere else I've heard of. My biggest complaint is with the President, who is artificial to the point that it's nauseating. But, thankfully she rarely interacts with students.

All in all 10/10 would recommend.

P.S. I'm Jewish and was always treated with the utmost respect from faculty and peers.
