The teachers truly care about their students. They have tutorials almost everyday and make themselves very accessible. The facilities are constantly being updated. The classrooms are improved each summer and new sections have been added (such as a new front and back lobby). The community is nice, many come to the football, basketball, and volleyball games and attend the dances. The volleyball team is ranked nationally and consistently wins awards. The lunches have been updated to a more of a buffet style, common to that of many colleges. The honors and AP classes offered are rigorous and prepare students very well for life after high school in college. Students are guided through the college admissions standards by their counselors, who are also very accessible to their multitude of students. The spirit events are definitely to look forward too, and so are the service activities.
Honestly, I loved my school community at Padua! My teachers created an amazing learning environment and my peers were so kind. I could rely on people from my school for anything. I also just loved how much school pride everyone had and how we could gather as a community to pray together. I learned so much about myself and would definitely recommend this high school for anyone living in North East Ohio.
