St. Brendan High School Reviews

Saint Brendan High my first year was marvelous. I truly enjoyed my time spent there. All my teachers were great and the school spirit was amazing. But as time went by amazing teachers started leaving Saint Brendan and the rules became stricter and stricter. Nothing ever would be approved, every single student idea was shut down by administration (and I mean every single one), and school spirit slowly started staggering. Teachers were being hired that were highly questionable. I am lucky enough that I was able to be a part of AP and honors classes where the teachers are decent, but if a student is in regular classes, the teachers are known to be not good at all. This school is managing to function due to the few good teachers and counselors left. There is no student voices in this school. Everything is micromanaged by administration.

Some of the teachers are amazing and really helped me learn while others had NO idea what they were doing. Some teachers are extremely unqualified and do not even know what they are teaching. I really have no idea how they could let some teachers work there, when asked with a question many would respond with "google it". I once had a few of my classmates tell me that they had one of the teachers speaking ill of me. Favoritism is a huge thing at St.Brendan. The campus itself is actually pretty nice except for the bathrooms. There is never toilet paper or soap, not sure why because the tuition is pretty expensive. The new building is gorgeous but half of the cool equipment that they say you are going to use actually never gets used. The food is okay and very over priced. The staff is not great either but there are a few who dedicate everything for the school and there are some who could careless.
The STEM program is amazing, with a lot of different classes and clubs all pertaining to that field. But, if your more into the arts, St. Brendan falls short. As an art student myself, the art programs are severely lacking. There's the bare minimum like your basic Art 2D, 3D, and ceramics, while also having a portfolio and AP Studio Art classes. Other than these classes and the VPA Academy (an broad umbrella term for those who are interested in STEM, Law and Global, Visual and Performing Arts, and Medical), there isn't much left of the art program. The principal rejected an art club, with two sheets filled with students who wanted one, because there was already and Academy, hypocritical because there's a STEM club established when there's already an Academy. There was an invisible Art Honor Society that dissolved soon after it was revived, but the only art teacher and other teachers had to face the principal in person because he wouldn't answer any emails regarding this society.
