Roman Catholic High School Reviews

I love all aspects about Roman Catholic High School, this school is a extremely diverse school it is also very welcoming. This school has expanded over the years and will continue to expand drastically over the next few years. These new expansions will bring new areas for students too explore and will withhold new classrooms and even a gym! The only problem i have with Roman Catholic High School is the lunch that is served during lunch. The lunch is expensive and it does not taste good. When choosing a food to eat there's no variety to choose from its just basic American cuisine that is served there. In conclusion Roman Catholic High School is a very good school and deserves the title to be the first ever Catholic High School in America.

Allowing me to attend Roman Catholic High School was one of the best choices my parents ever made. My high school experience allowed me to grow academically, spiritually, and socially. The teachers at Roman truly cared about their students and went the extra mile to ensure that you succeeded. Besides having a wonderful academic program, Roman Catholic also had a number of clubs and organizations that fostered leadership and communication skills. Roman Catholic certainly prepared me for not only my collegiate studies, but also on how to successfully navigating the real world.
Academic is average: standard requirements are met. If you want a challenging high school, this is not it. 9k each year is not worth it, unless you got a 3-4k scholarship, but even that is a stretch. There are better high schools out there. An alternative way might be to send your son to public school and spend money on extracurricular activities. However, there are some positives to this school. For one, the brotherhood is real. I rarely see bullying and everyone is pretty nice. Second, there is a high chance to become a diocesan scholar (one who take classes at a college without extra payment, other than for textbooks). Overall, average.
