Paramus Catholic High School Reviews

I chose to attend paramus catholic because of their science department, I want to become a Veterinarian and in my search of high schools I felt their sciences department will best help me prepare for my degree of choice.
I love how the school is set-up and the warm feeling of belonging from the first day I entered into the school. I have made longtime friends that I will take with me throughout my life.
Being active in afterschool activities have definitely deepened my school spirit. While there new administration came in at first they took away some activities that we felt was harsh but after a while I started to understand and appreciate all they have done and are continuing to do is to ensure the success of their students.

Paramus Catholic High School (PCHS) is an affordable parochial co-ed school. The resources available at PCHS are designed to help students excel academically. It is easier to success at PCHS than it is to fail. Teachers are available before and after school for students who need assistance. In addition, students from the National Honor Society club (NHS) are also available to provide student-to-student tutoring. There are numerous after school activities ranging in variety for the non-athletic student, to the all year round athletic student. Life at PCHS is neither dull or boring. I highly recommend PCHS to any parent seeking to make a meaningful investment in their child's education.
My experience as a Paramus Catholic student was very different from what I expected it to be initially. I made friends, learned a lot about my self throughout the years, and was brought into a new environment compared to my previous educational experience. They showed me why striving for my goals and bettering myself along with my education benefits me in my journey. Of course I had some hardships along the way, but life is never going to be perfect. I believe you get the most out of what you make, and I took advantage of the opportunity not many in my community have of attending a private school. I greatly appreciate the motivation and drive for success this school has embedded in me through the students, faculty, and people I’ve met along the way.
