Pope Francis Preparatory School Reviews

Overall the school is not so bad; however, there are instances where I wish I did not have to come to school. Some teachers teach very well and are very compromising and understanding, while others teach terribly, and are unreasonable and overly dramatic. As a senior student in 2018, I can not say anything about the new school's facilities. However, let me talk about the administration of the school. You can tell what a school is like by their administration, and, quite frankly, the administration of this school does not know what they are doing. They are very disorganized and can not answer some simple questions that I have asked multiple times. One of the questions I asked was "what is the quarter grade that seniors need in their AP classes to be exempt from the finals?" and I only got vague answers and a "I'll ask the office" and then never hear from them again. Though the school itself is not terrible, how the school runs needs to be significantly worked on.

A handful of teachers are truly incredible, but others are not competent at all and a few honestly seem as if they are not mentally all there. Many of the kids are socially awkward and some do not know how to read, but having the ability to take Honors, AP, and IB classes allows you to *mostly* stay clear of them. Administration is an actual joke, seeing as they care more about uniforms and senior quotes than hiring experienced teachers and actually listening to the students. The school may become better at the new location, but this does not seem like "Prep school material" to me.
Pope Francis is a good high school that prepared me for college. I️ believe though, that they could have done much more as far as helping us through the college application process. The school administrators did not inspire creative spirits but instead made us feel like we were being controlled. There are some good teachers but many that do not help their students truly understand concepts.
