Overall, my experience over the past 5 years at this school have been amazing. The classical education allows for me to dive into deeper and more profound questions than I would have been able to at any public school. As students, we are pushed to our limits, but in a healthy way that allows us to grow and improve academically. The small classes allow for a much greater among the students and between students and teachers. I am very thankful that I got to attend this amazing school.

I have gone to this school since kindergarten. The older I have gotten, the more I have realized the great education I get. However, the faculty and staff lack much respect for their students. I myself have experienced physical and emotional suffering throughout my years. The sports at this school are decent and this is coming from someone who loves to play any physical activity. I have made life long friends at this school that will be apart of me forever. So in some ways this school is good, but their is still many problems that Donahue must get right.
The academics & diversity are excellent but everything else is not good- rigid, teachers yelling, lecture style, very religious, condemning, no clubs, inconsistent moods in teachers, no food plan. 1 building for K-12. Administration listens but doesn't act on complaints even if over half the parents step forward. If you are conservative & catholic, this may be a good choice. If you have any liberal views, your children will feel alienated from their classmates.
