Owensboro Catholic High School Reviews

I liked that the I was challenged to work to my fullest potential, and when I transferred over in my freshman year I was made to fell very welcome. I would change the fact that you are required to take a religion class every year. I know it is a catholic school but many students are not catholic, and go to the school for either academic purposes or sports. We also have a very crowded parking lot and if you are late, or take college classes, you probably have to park across the street, even if you are a senior. Overall though, the school has great teachers in every subject, at least the ones I've had, and the push you to be your best and are glad to help students.

To be able to experience Owensboro Catholic High School, I would not have it any other way. Just like any school there will always be problems or things you may not like, but at time, the good factors out weigh the bad. I love how small our class sizes are (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior). With that being said in a way everyone knows everyone, and we all act as one big family. If I could change anything though, it would be the involvement. I know it may sound elementary, but I wish we did more activities with one another as classes to build stonger friendships.
Owensboro Catholic High is a great school, especially with academics and sports. We definitely need more qualified teachers, better food, and a better bullying policy. Catholic High has a lot of clubs and sports which is great, but unfortunately some are given more attention than others.
