Oakland Catholic High School
Parent: Daughters immersed in a strong college prep environment fostering competition/excellence. Desire stronger focus on a “love of learning” rather than students in pursuit of high GPAs. Troubling incidence with academic dishonesty this year among sophomores, particularly members of JOA; consequences not on par with gravity of the actions. Mixed messages to students not involved. Several outstanding teachers, most notably in humanities, producing solid writers. With STEM focus, need stronger hiring/retention of math/science teachers & better AP outcomes. Exceptional college counselor! Service opportunities are solid. Wish for greater focus on CATHOLIC IDENTITY, especially given that these young women have an integral role to play in an increasingly secular society. Exceptional experiences with tennis, XC, and swim teams. Refreshing to see coaches who actively engage all athletes, not just the best, who also promote leadership, discipline, perseverance and a real sense of belonging.
