In today's world knowing you have a safe place to learn is key. St Pat's has parents and security staff there at all times. Knowing we have off duty police working there in their off hours is great. The school allows you to find your passion and grow, athletics, academics, art,music, drama, science, or even fishing. You have so many choices to find something you like and excel. No wonder this is the oldest catholic HS in Chicago. Its has an amazing tradition of excellence. I'm so proud to have been a shamrock.

Chicago's oldest Christian male only school. Tuition isn't too bad considering it is a private high school and you pay a fixed amount every year. Students get along pretty well, so it won't be too for students to find a few friends. Food is pretty good, but students have to pay for it or bring their own meals. Although some more healthier options should be added. Safety isn't an issue since there is an armed security guard at the front of the school, who is a police officer and a parent of one of the students.
St. Pat's is a very strange school. It is a place where young men are free to be themselves, which more than often means being a clown. That being said, I love this school. The Shamrock brotherhood is a very real, very tangible thing for us seniors. We've all grown together a lot over the past 4 years, and it's great knowing that I will always have friends in my fellow Shamrocks. My experience at St. Pat's has left me ready for college, and for the world. I feel as though this school offers the opportunity for a lot of personal growth for a young man, but it is up to us to take advantage of that. This school is a second home to me, and to the many Shamrocks that have passed through over the years.
