Niche User: I believe the school is a fine place to be if you fit in. If not, people will judge you or talk about you behind your back. If you make a mistake or get in trouble, everyone hears about it very soon, and often the story gets thrown out of proportion or is false. We do have a lot of people involved in athletics, and a lot of those people believe they are on top of the world or should have authority over someone else because they are the star of the volleyball or basketball team. This, however, comes as a community effort because most of the attention is brought to sports. We have an excellent art and music and band program that hardly gets recognized, while piers, teachers, and community members could talk for weeks about a winning touchdown. It is not a bad school, a presents many opportunities with our high-tech programs for the real world.

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.
