Roanoke Catholic School
- Private School
- Roanoke, VA
- PK, K-12
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.

Lee High School
- Lee County Public Schools, VA
Senior: Lee High School is located in a small town in Southwest Virginia. I love being able to know personally, or know of everyone in my grade. I have made memories that will last a life time, and I am so thankful I was able to spend my high school years at Lee. My principal stated her goal at the beginning of the school year, which was that she wanted the class of 2018 to be glad they graduated from Lee High School and remember the school in our future endeavors. That tiny statement meant the world to me. Our staff is caring of all of the students and wants us to achieve everything possible.
Most things are wonderful at Lee, however I would like to see our reputation change in the eyes of students who attend Lee. It is a great school, but lots of students take the various opportunities we receive for granted. I would love to see the students value Lee High School for what it is worth.
