Ursuline Academy High School Reviews

I have been at Ursuline New Orleans since I was in first grade and now I am a senior. I have seen many changes through the years with their facilities, leadership positions, and more. When I started at Ursuline there was no softball field, Early Childhood Center, or Wellness Center. What I appreciate most about Ursuline is their history. There isn’t a day that goes by without hearing the words 1727, St. Angela, St. Ursula, and Our Lady of Prompt Succor. The root of Ursuline’s students is “Serviam” which means “I will serve”, another term we hear every day. It teaches us to help others not only in our own community, but everywhere in the world. That is why we send a group of students and faculty to Belize every year to help a family build a home where they can’t afford one. Because Ursuline is a smaller community you form bonds with your teachers that you can’t find anywhere else. In the classroom teachers are open to any questions and want to see you succeed.

My Ursuline experience was unexpectedly wonderful now that I think about it. As opposed to other private girls schools in the New Orleans area such as Mount Carmel and Dominican, not many girls have Ursuline on the top of their list. Why? I seriously question that till this day. The diversity and experience that Ursuline offers to students seriously engages them in all perspectives of life. I have made friends of so many different backgrounds and beliefs that I believe I am prepared to function in a world full of many more backgrounds and beliefs. The academics are not outstandingly remarkable but Ursuline does its job to challenge its students and give a handy amount of resources and homework. With the fairly new food service, SAGE, lunches have been like home cooked meals that provide for you your protein, veggies, and sweet deserts.
What I like about Ursuline Academy is the opportunity to get to meet a diverse group of people with different views, cultures, and personalties. I like that the teachers and students have a good relationship. The teachers try their best to help us and make us understand the material and offer help consistently. The only thing that I would change about Ursuline is the cost and the administration. The administration is not effective with improving life for the students, we are not asked how can we make our student experience better often and if we are, no changes are made. Also, tuition has gone up an immense amount and I have attended Ursuline for 13 years. Many of us are not aware what is actually changing to the school that is causing tuition to go up almost every year.
