Saint Monica has helped me grow as a person. I have received loving support from all those I meet at Saint Monica. The school works closely with the church and this allows for students to delve deeper into their faith. A small school environment allows for students to make connections with students of all grade levels. Saint Monica provides programs that can change a student's life, whether academically, athletically, or artistically. I have benefitted from Saint Monica's on a spiritual, artistical, and academic nature. Thanks to the staff that works at Saint Monica, I applied for a program that will provide me with a full ride to a university of my choice.
I like many teachers at St. Monica Catholic High School. I enjoy the diversity and location. As of recently, the school has become more laid back, less unreasonable detentions and stuff of that nature. That is good. The campus is getting prettier and the principal is awesome. I would like to see the Performing Arts get more recognition and opportunities. It would also help to better the athletics programs because there is potential. Overall, the community and family aspect of SMCHS makes the school very good. (Just a tip, if you have questions ASK, teachers, other students, faculty)
