Shrine Catholic High School Reviews

The Shrine community is unlike any other. Since the school is PreK through 12th grade, many of the older students are able to create bonds with the younger children. The facilities are not the greatest, but it is because the school has been around for many years, so the facilities are historical to the school's culture. I believe that what makes Shrine so special is truly the community that supports not only the parish but the schools. Whenever an event takes place, whether good or bad, there is always a community of people supporting those involved.

We've had a very good experience at Shrine High School with our two students. The college counseling, college prep curriculum, opportunities to participate in sports, & opportunities for leadership are worth the tuition price. The Math & English departments are strong. History is too. Science and the languages have room for improvement partially because of teacher-turnover. My kids were well-prepared for college. The small size has been good for my kids overall; sure I wish it was a bit bigger but I sense it is growing. Socially it is hard to initially fit in when some families have been together since pre-school but I have found the community welcoming overall. My kids had no problem finding friends. The Mothers Club and Dads Club were great ways to get involved & meet other parents. Its worth mentioning that you don't have to belong to the Shrine parish to receive the tuition discount as long as you are active at your own Catholic parish. It's not just a parish school.
As an International Student, everyone is very nice and respectful with everyone. Even tho, I felt like there were very small options of classes to choose since the student size per classes are so small.
