Pope John Paul II Catholic High School Reviews

46 reviews
All Categories
Pope John Paul II Catholic High has provided me with academic excellence, a Christ-centered educational environment, and leadership skills. Although I am not Catholic, this school has helped me pursue a positive life by teaching personal morality, family life, and social morality. Our yearly, mandatory church and community service hours has positively improved my character development and outlook on life. Volunteering in my community and church has advanced my cooperation and communications skills. This school has given me an excellent education that will help with college preparedness. It offers honors, AP, and dual enrollment classes which I have benefited from. Our history, alma mater, fight song, and culture is what I love most about Pope John Paul II. A change I would like to see is more cultural diversity. I have matured spiritually, emotionally, and academically through these 3 years at this school.

My high school experience was not bad by any means, but in many ways they failed to prepare me and my friends for college. AP and duel enrollment classes were not offered until my senior year, which put my year and others before it at a severe disadvantage. Now, they continue to lack but at least they are putting forth an effort. Their arts programs, in any capacity, are lackluster at best. Art, theatre, band, choir- all across the board. If your student is to make any significant progress they will have to take additional classes somewhere else. The faculty is eternally shifting, which seems to have caused problems in recent years. That all being said, those teachers that do stick around create a wonderful atmosphere for any student willing to fight for great opportunities. They are caring and seem to truly take an interest in their students. The resident priest is also a great guy, if Catholicism is up your alley.
I have been at Pope John Paul II High School since 8th grade and am now a Senior. It has been a great experience with excellent teachers and staff. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities. I enjoyed the small school atmosphere because you know mostly everyone and the teachers are always available for students.
