Vandebilt Catholic High School Reviews

I absolutely loved my experience at Vandebilt and would recommend attending to anyone! I came from a small school about 30 minutes away from Vandebilt, and I knew no one going to the school! The teachers, administrators, and students were the most welcoming group. I truly felt that I belonged! The school is fantastically decorated each summer, which enhances the overall appeal. I joined many clubs and organizations and remained determined in my studies. I loved the use of technology because it deepened the lessons and provided the best tools for everyone's learning ability. The rigor of my classes has certainly prepared me for college. Vandebilt offers anything to help create a fun learning atmosphere and excellent social life for students!

I have been attending Vanderbilt Catholic for the last five years and I can honestly say that I am prepared for college. During my years at Vanderbilt, I have been involved in Football and I feel that this has contributed to several of my characteristics; for example, my leadership skills and strengthened my faith. My coaches and staff were influential role models on disclipine. I really am very grateful to have formed a very special bond or brotherhood with my teammates. The faculty at Vanderbilt has really broadened my horizon and opened me up to so much vegetation. It saddens me to depart but I feel as though My peers have prepared me to embrace my next journey. I would highly recommend Vanderbilt Catholic High to my underclassmen.
As a student at Vandebilt that’s been at this school for many years, I can say I know this school pretty well. Negative things you always will hear anybody say is that our staff is not that great, which I can agree on for the most part. They come off to all of us as rude and uncaring and extremely unorganized when it comes to school-wide projects, school dances, and even sports. Now what I can say I do like are the variety of class options. Video Journalism, Personal Finance, and General Buisness are just a few different elective choices you could take. If you have the money to spend on a private school and you live in the area, then maybe this is a good school to go to. But if you’re like me and not Catholic, not a big fan of school and don’t plan to go to college, or maybe you just don’t want a lot of stress and pressure from classes, this is for sure not the place you want to go.
