Roanoke Catholic School

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.

Sophomore: The teachers who teach more upper level subjects (chemistry, algebra II, biology, etc.) are great. They are some of the best teachers I've had and my favorites, too. AP courses are offered for Biology, Chemistry, English, and Calculus. I would like to see a broader range of courses offered at Hiland, other than the main core classes. More foreign language, science, and elective course options would be great, as well as courses designed to give students a head start in fields they are interested in. (ex.: Oceanography, Astronomy, Home Ec, Interior Design) Due to the fact that Hiland is so small, there are very few clubs and "extras" such as orchestra or debate club. In addition, Hiland is not very diverse and the cafeteria food is not great. Unfortunately, I've also faced some issues with the administration and my ability to take certain online courses.
