    20 Best Catholic High Schools in Texas

    High School Senior: My first 3 years of high school were pretty great. I began to get more involved my sophomore year, and the activities at school are wonderful. There are many extracurricular activities and clubs to become involved in, and the atmosphere is very welcoming. My senior year has been interesting as well, a lot of senior privileges were taken away due to the class below us (class of 2017) because they have a negative reputation, but other than that I've invested in many clubs. Student council is one thing I am proud to be apart of, although I've only been in it for one year, (I'm the secretary) it's been an honor being so involved with the student body. One of my most memorable experiences was organizing and planning homecoming, the dance, decorations, homecoming week, pep rally, and more. It was a lot of work but quite worth it. One last thing near and dear to my heart is the art program. We have an outstanding art teacher and our new art room is magnificent. We have so much talent in the art department and I am excited what we can accomplish. Even though I came to this school calling is Pope John and I am going to graduate now with it being called Saint John, I don't regret any of it. The environment is great, everyone is caring and it's not as preppy as you think a "white" school would be. (I'm Asian so I'm a minority here). I recommend this school to anyone looking for a small atmosphere private high school in the Katy area!
