St. Brendan High School Reviews

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.

St. Brendan Catholic High School provides excellent education and instills a sense of the school as a family into their students. The school has many clubs and sports that they recommend their students to participate in. along with the academic preparation for college that is provided, they also instill a love for the Catholic faith in their students. Students at St.Brendan will leave after their four years very well prepared and with a family of Sabres right behind them!
St Brendan is a safe environnent with very helpful teachers who reach out and try to help the student as needed and help them prepare for college. However, more than 90% of the student population are white latinos. The administration in this school are mostly very rude, not only to the students, but to the parents as well. Some teachers favor other students more than others when it comes to how strict they apply their rules. As for academics, st. Brendan does not give chances to try more advanced classes, like Honors or AP classes unless you meet the GPA or final grade requirements, thus lowering your chances of possibly getting a higher GPA.
