Pomona Catholic High School Reviews
I love the friendship with other people, and how people can accept others. I want to see a better change in communication with the teachers, parents, and students.
The teachers are willing to work with the students, but the school has a history of being unorganized.
Coming to high school, not knowing anyone, I was completely surrounded in this welcoming environment with helpful, friendly faculty and students everywhere. Hopefully , in the near future, the school can expand to accommodate more students and current students comfortably; and have a gym for athletics. Also, although I love Pomona Catholic for its historic charm and history, it would be beneficial to have some updates around campus such as, renovations to the bathrooms and classrooms-possibly new desks.
PC is an outstanding school with an exemplary faculty. The administration has enhanced the academic curriculum and added several new sports programs. 99% of graduates attend a 4 year university and our student retention rate is 98%, which shows that students love the school and chose to stay. I will be a Senior next year - looking forward to a fun and challenging year.
For a "college prep high school", PC DID NOT prepare me for college. PC really needs to consider educating their students in health, economics, and a student's full range of options after graduating as well as the college application process. PC has nice experiences like retreats, but overall it is a very sheltered, low-budget, scam of a school. PC is inconsistent in their discipline and often the "popular"/wealthy students always get a slap on the wrist. Failing students will still get their C. Some girls have heart and are ambitious, but it is unfortunate that they just don't have the right guidance.
I am a Senior at Pomona Catholic and I have attended all four years. I had a great experience all in all. I made a lot of friends and created thousands of memories. As a freshman I was new to the private catholic school community and I am proud to say that Pomona Catholic did a wonderful job in helping me adjust and go about things in a way that suit me. My favorite part about Pomona Catholic was definitely the teachers and staff. They were amazing in so many different ways. Being a school of about 300 students, the teachers had unique relationships with each and everyone of their students. The many clubs and extracurricular activities contributed to the diverse culture presented all throughout the school.
Pomona Catholic does not have a steady unbiased staff. If you aren’t top of your class, or an administrator doesn’t like you then you’re invisiable on campus. It’s a small sheltered school of all girls. Girls on campus aren’t disciplined for their wrong actions and again if you’re liked by staff a student can get away with anything. School events aren’t organized as well as they could be. Teachers are expected to do multiple tasks on campus no questions asked. Students are not a main focus on campus until senior year when seniors have to apply to college and the school has a 100% graduation rate they have to stay loyal to. It has prepared me for college but not so much in an academic way.
I like how involved I was able to get at school. I was able to play sports, and participate on our student government. It was not very academically challenging. I was in two A.P. classes, and I was still not that challenged.
I went to Pomona Catholic my freshman, sophomore, and senior year. Junior year I attended my local public school and I saw a major difference in the way the schools were run. I would say that the public school I went to had a better education system but it was not nearly as family based. Pomona Catholic revolves around a sisterhood that pushes one another to grow in faith, knowledge, and character. Some teachers were very good at their study and others were just hired because they were alumni. The administration tries to make it look like they are everything every parent would dream of but in reality they treat students unfairly and it is really all about the money for them.
My daughter learned to advocate her feminine rights with regard to political, spiritual, social, and economic views. The quote, “When you educate a woman you educate a generation” is as true today for her, as it was then. The teachers were helpful, and quick to reply even in 2005, when they didn’t upload grade online. All it took was a visit to the classroom, a phone call, and the teachers were ready to help. Pomona Catholic is about the whole girl intellectual, moral, athletic, and spiritual experience. They offer a great blend of academics, athletics, and spiritual tradition in a small school, which ensures that every girl’s voice is heard, and development, every day. If I had to it over again, I would definitely send her to here again.
There are many different extracurricular opportunities at this school, they are also very encouraging to step out of your comfort zone and try something new and different.
What makes this school unique is that it sticks with their traditions from 1989.
Pomona Catholic has a very encouraging staff of teachers.
Pomona Catholic offer a a variety of after school activities ranging from Anime Club to Water Polo. Many girls are involved in after school sports and clubs. To name a few sports we have golf, cross country, waterpolo, softball, soccer, and basketball. The girls also have the option of creating a club if something they want is not offered. Most of our clubs are based off the community and helping those around us. Which is one of my favorite things about Pomona Catholic
The spirit throughout the school is amazing. At Pomona Catholic all of the girls are a family, and carry a sisterhood throughout their four years or however long they have been there. Some of my favorite experiences have been all of the rallies that ASB has put together. Also working for the spring musical for the past three years. Also making life long friends who will never leave my side and will always stay my sisters.
The teachers use creative ways to help get the student get involved with assignments and lectures in class. Several teachers us the interactive smart board for games or videos to intrigue the students to paying attention to the lesson. Others use hands on examples such as Mr. Bell who will models or experiments to teach, and Dr Clement who uses games that gets the girls to participate in the discussion.
I had a great experience coming to this school and I have learned a lot about myself and more in my studies. It made me realize the person that I am and the athlete that I came to be. The teachers here are great and always have one on one time with you whenever you need it. The bond between the girls here at the school is unbearable.
