St. Brendan High School Reviews

The only reason for the two stars is for the student body. But first, any new student should not get attached to a teacher or administrator; the turnover is amazingly high. Secondly, the lack of qualified professionals for there positions is crazy; take a look at the degrees, training, or experience. In the end, you will find unqualified individuals in posts that boggle the mind from the administration down to the teachers. St.Brendan came highly recommended by a friend of mine who went there in the late 80s, and even she is supporting my child transferring next year. All show at the open house do your research!

45-minute detention for arriving to class 2 minutes late. Bathrooms without functioning soap dispensers that often flood. An administration that denies any type of student attempt to better our high school experience. The thinnest possible sweaters for classrooms kept at 60 degrees, which can NEVER be substituted for heavier jackets (not even during the cold winter days). Are you wearing an “illegal” (non-school) sweater? Detention and demerit. Lack of true recognition or emphasis on any sport that is not the boys’ football team. A curriculum that bombards students with several hours of homework every night (regardless of class levels), which lead to all-nighters and underperformance the next day. Food that is often too greasy, unhealthy, or rock-solid. Tiny, crammed hallways that are unfit to hold the 1200 students trying to get to their next classes. One of the only redeeming qualities about this school is its teachers.
Being a Sophmore at Saint Brendan, I truly appreciate the schools effort to improve its academics as it has certainly been a much needed change, as well as the athletics. We have 16 sports to offer both boys and girl and are starting to cater more to the boys with our brand new football Field. However, being a PR student,I work with touring the incoming 8th graders and helping the administration and staff. Due to this and having such a high role in Saint Brendan, I get told everything.The football team gets privileged like no other and it’s quite annoying to the rest of the students who get in trouble for things. I feel that the school is so busy with trying to buy the boys love that the girls are neglected, and as a catholic school, everyone should be treated with love and respect equally. I genuinely am happy with school. Each year it improves more with its academics and 21st century learning style but I just feel that there needs to be a change in the favoritism.
