St. Elizabeth High School is small, close nit community that provide excellent education both academic and religious. The things that speaks most about this school the small community, because of this we become almost family with each other. The new thing that spoke out to me was the teachers. Not only are the teachers willing to help the students, but they remember you! After my first class, the teacher already had a class room of names memorized.

I transferred to St. Elizabeth High School for the beginning of my sophomore year. The students did turn out to be fun and friendlier than the average student body, however the teaching and administrative staff was absolutely horrendous. The academic staff is generally narrow minded and will only try to help through words, not actions. Among many issues my family and I faced with incomplient teachers, my favorite is when I had a major disagreement with a biased grade given to me on an AP literature teacher and was ready to argue it, but couldn’t because the teacher of my class is the academic Dean. I am taking virtual course of AP Calculus BC because the school does not offer this course (alongside MANY courses for college readiness). I am frustrated with the school administration and faculty... to the point where I am excited to fill out this rating of my high school.
As a student here, I love St. Elizabeth. They have prepared me for college and guided me through the application process. I am grateful for the staff because they are so motivating and always push us to do our absolute best. There are plenty of activities to participate in, where everyone is included. Also since we are a small school, it is easy to be apart of sports team where cuts rarely happen. The only improvement to be made is increasing the diversity within the students and staff.
