Senior: There isn’t anything specific that I would change about this school. I enjoy the ease of small town living and school life. Middle school years are, in my experience, the most difficult years for pre-teen/teen. Just getting through those 3 years seemed like a lifetime. With that said, I believe the one thing that I would like to see more attention paid too, or would be the anti-bullying. No kid deserves to be sent to school and be ridiculed for the changes that their body is going through during these years.

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.
