I loved Dominican and miss it every single day! I made my best friends here and we had great experiences together. The teachers wanted us to succeed and it showed through their personality and work ethic. We valued religion and always stressed to listen and respect people's opinions even when they were different from our own. We valued culture and even had a day to celebrate different cultures from around the world with outfits, singing, and dancing. I had great relationships with my teachers and was able to be myself and feel comfortable asking questions. Teachers were available to answer questions after school and were willing to help as much as they could. I believe Dominican is even better than when I left. They have a brand new building that focuses on the important connection between science and religion. I truly believe that Dominican has shaped me into the young woman I am today and I am extremely grateful for having the opportunity to grow and learn there.

St. Mary's Dominican High School is the epitome of a home away from home. It is not just a place to learn but a place to grow as an individual. Also, I feel that I will be fully prepared for college, especially after talking to past seniors at Dominican. My mother is a Dominican alum. She fell in love with Dominican as a young adult, and now so have I. I have made amazing bonds with girls that I know I will never forget. I also have grown closer to God and strengthened my faith. I accredit each and every one of my academic achievements to the faculty at St. Mary's Dominican High School. Kudos to them for shaping young girls into well educated young adults. I love Dominican High School!
As a student, DHS gave me an experience that I will never forget. The friends I made at DHS remain among my best friends - and our children are friends now as well. The faith and relationship that was encouraged and reinforced with God stays with me today as well. As a parent, I was thrilled to see how DHS has grown and progressed with the times. The expansion is college level and AMAZING! As a CIA H there, the comradery of the students and support they give one another is heart warming. It's is wonderful to see that the fantastic experience I had, is still alive!
