Middle School Student: So far Mesa Verde has been a good experience. The teachers I have are very supportive and are very helpful to their students. Mrs. Sutton (8th grade Science) and Mr. Purkiss (8th grade Language) have been really good in preparing the eighth graders for high school and even applying for scholarships and college. Mrs. LaBelle is also a great faculty member. She will talk to students about any of their concerns and is a super kind person. I think my favorite experience at this school has been meeting so many new people through my elective, and having teacher I know will help me if I need it.

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
