St. Dominic Academy Reviews

I adore being in an all-girls high school, where I learned to be independent. Many people ask, “How do we handle not seeing guys everyday?” Actually, it is not that bad. It just shows that you do not need guys around to have a great time! Plus, many of us collaborate in some activities with Prep, so we still keep in contact with guys!

Uniforms can be a drag to some people because our uniform isn’t that great. But, I adore the senior uniforms. They’re very cute, except the brown shoes we have to wear everyday.

I have thoroughly been enjoying my experience at St Dom's. It is an all-girl school where the students support each other. I wish the teachers were a bit LESS lenient, believe it or not. While I complete all my assignments in a timely fashion, some students do not, and there are no consequences. I stay up late after my extra-curricular activities to ensure my work is done.
Aside from that, however, most of the teachers excel in their field and I have learned a lot!
Although it is an all girl school, I had a great opportunity for personal and social growth. The teachers were excellent! They were devoted and passionate! I remember some of my favorites were Ms. Gilbert, Ms. Palmieri, Mr. Seborowski, etc.
