St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School Reviews
What a wonderful school! The principal leads with a level of energy and expertise that is contagious throughout the community of students, faculty, and families. It has the perfect mix of arts and stem education and is welcoming to all students, regardless of religious, ethnic, or economic background. The campus is beautiful and it has a manageable student body where kids can find their place and have opportunities to meet new people, however, are not lost in a school of 1000-2000+ kids with varying and often competing needs. Savio boasts a fabulous, college-prep education where tech is utilized to compliment studies-not replace them. Critical thinking is encouraged. We've been extremely happy with the education, support, and overall high school experience Savio has provided our children. Worth the investment!
The school itself may be small, but that just means more one-on-one time with teachers. It also means that everyone gets to know each other and become one big family. There are multiple clubs and extracurriculars you can join, but not as many as you would see in a public school. The sports teams aren't the best, but the energy at games is pretty good. Academics are more challenging than you would see at a public school, but if you find it too challenging, teachers are available to answer questions and there are always other students that you can talk to. That being said, the academics are part of the school's strong suit. Since this is a Catholic school, there are masses held, Adoration, and retreats (these are really fun). One of the required courses is Theology which I find very thought provoking. If you're not Catholic, don't sweat it, Savio is very welcoming.
St. Dominic Savio CHS provides the community a place for bright students to shine, pursue various hobbies and STEM academics, and grow in their faith. The school becomes a family and the teachers are always willing to challenge and encourage their students. The sports teams always do very well, and personally I loved playing on the Tennis team. Even activities such as the Spring Musical allow the student a chance to learn how to balance their time and step outside of themselves to create a character. There was a heart for service as well. The Junior "street retreat" is just one place where students learn to see the world through someone else's eyes- those of the homeless. Overall, St. Dominic Savio is a wonderful place to continue one's lifelong goals of academia and growth.
