Parent: ACHS is absolutely one of the greatest high schools in Atlantic County.
The teachers truly do care, the guidance counselors actually guide! The extra curriculars and the clubs are all fantastic.
The school is extremely clean, they have one of the most gorgeous libraries I've ever seen!
The security does have to be there. And I am glad for that. They do their jobs. But they develop good rapports with the kids. So it's very safe. So many people have a preconceived notion of what they think the school is.
I would highly recommend ACHS to any parent or student. The large group of ethnically diverse students is great, as they don't see one another as any different because of their race or religion. They see their friends. It is a public school; with a bit of a private school "family" feel

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.
