St. Brendan High School Reviews
Rating 4.06 out of 5 447 reviews
I really enjoyed my time at St.Brendan. The faculty and staff treated me as if I was their own child. Caring for me and always pushing me to do my absolute best. At St.Brendan I played Volleyball, Football and Lacrosse.
The teachers and curriculum is above average and my children seem to be very happy but as a parent, the communication with the school is lousy. Unless you are donating a significant amount of money on top of your tuition, you have no say and the administration does not care, instead of putting the well being of the students ahead of everything, they worry about cash-flow and trying to compete with the ALL Boys school next door. The Athletic program is another disappointment, there is no encouragement from the school to their existing students to expand their athletic ability and try new things, a true athlete plays more than one sport and well rounded child should partake in as many extra curricular activities as they can handle and not be discouraged or rebranded from a coach for not sticking to one thing.
I'm a sophomore now at St. Brendan High, and do testify to the fact that it is a great school overall. It is academically challenging, has a beautiful campus, and has some nice activities. I couldn't bring myself to 5 stars because of the inconsistency in teachers, as some are good, and some aren't nearly up to par. The student body is by no means diverse, and is nearly 100% Hispanic, but the surrounding area suggests this. If you are looking for a cultural melting pot, this is not the place for you, but as a good school, I am very happy.
Based on my personal experience, St. Brendan High School is a great school with excellent academics and an amazing student environment. The food offered for the students is pretty good (could still be a little better) and the facilities are great. Additionally, the school prepares students for future jobs/opportunities exceptionally well. My only complaint is the quality of teaching. Many teachers at the school are very good, but there are some that fail to meet the needs of students, leaving them confused with material.
I’m a student at Saint Brendan Catholic High School and I can proudly say this is the best school I have been to in the years of my life. All the teachers and staff are readily available to make the lives and education of their students the best they can. Through faith, they teach students how to be kind, loving, understanding, and sympathetic towards other people.
The classes are tough when in honors or alpha but it helps build up your intelligence for college. All in all the school is helpful in the academic department not much activities to destress but it was good.
I like the environment we are raised in. There are lots of opportunities for learning experiences based on your interest. It is also easy to connect with teachers who can understand us students.
I went to St. Brendan High and loved everything about it! I felt well prepared for college. I recommend to anyone looking to have a well rounded experience and education.
I like how academically driven the school is. However, sometimes the higher level classes are too difficult or time consuming for a high school class.
My experience at Saint Brendan was wholesome. I felt the environment to be very family friendly yet with adequate principles that are used I. Every day life. I feel that I have been prepared both educational and spiritually
Saint brendan high school offers a unique experience where taking part in your community and communication between staff and students is encouraged.
I graduated a year ago and I loved it here. This school helped build me into the person I am today. It helped structure my beliefs and my values. My younger sister is a freshman here and she is loving it as well.
St. Brendan was a home away from home. A place where teachers can become your friends and you are given the tools to head off to college.
I loved St. Brendan Catholic High School. I attended the school throughout all four years of high school and my experience was amazing. Not only is it a prestigious institute, but it is also fun. High school is not only about academics, but also about your social experience. I loved my teachers and my classes and excelled in them, but St. Brendan also gave me the opportunity to mingle with my classmates and attend a multitude of social activities. Whether it be clubs, dances, or sports, St. Brendan has everything I would want in a school.
I love my school because of my teachers. My teachers put in 100% to make sure each of us succeed and will always be there to help us along the way.
The school has a lot of school spirit and fun activities celebrating the school and students. The academics are very good and competitive especially the more rigorous classes.
loved my four years here! sad that it got cut short and wasn’t able to spend my last high school days as a senior
I would say that Saint Brendan provides a fun experience for their students, but there is room for improvement when speaking about relationships between teachers and students.
I researched all catholic high schools in south Miami dade and thankfully I chose this school for my two boys. They are very good in academics which is what I was looking for. Love the teachers and staff, counselors are awesome they really care about their students. My two boys went straight to FIU, as I did want them to stay in Miami. They gave my kids an awesome religious education and I’m so proud of my boys. Very safe school and love the fact that one of my sons was involved in baseball, the other one In music/choir as well. Thank you to the school. Proud to be a Sabre mom, still one more to go, hopefully my lil one will continue the family tradition and follow their older brothers footsteps. I do believe ST Brendan is the number 1 coed catholic HS in Miami. ❤️🙏
As an alumni and a former scholar athlete, I along with all other teammates was negatively affected by the turnover in athletic directors, 3 in 3 years. All of which were young, inexperienced, and fearful for their jobs which led to the loss of one of the best coaches (Carlos Maymi) which negatively affected all the athletes on cross country.
