This school focuses on activities not on academics. This school has fun clubs and activities to join. You can get involved in sports, theater or service. There is least 1 activity right for you. Sometimes theres so much activity happening at once you will not have time to study or do your homework. Theres too much pressure on you if you are in ASB to do everything at the last minute. Your grades will suffer so you either don't do your school work or take dishonest shortcuts with your school work. I hate to admit how much this is true.
It's pretty cool going to high school that doesn't have too many students and has a small campus compared to other high schools. A lot of the students her are very nice and the teachers are very supportive.
This is honestly a great school that does not get enough credit. It might not have such an excellent name compared to other schools out there but that is because it is different from those. It does not focus on "being known for sports, theatre, arts, etc." rather it focuses on the individual students. The small school gives a family type of sisterhood where we strive to only support and better one another. Holy Family may not be as rich, popular or large as other schools but it is a school where women make history.
Thank goodness I graduated from this school. It was definitely a humbling experience. The transition from high school to college is taking an absolute toll on me. I'm not prepared for college. Everyone around talks about how rigorous their high school and how the workload definitely prepared them, but honestly you can cruise through Holy Family with a 3.5 EASY... but don't be fooled because once you take that AP Test, don't expect to pass LOL. Once you take the SAT, expect an average of 1600, maybe even lower as a class culminative average SAT score. College Prep? Absolutely not.
again it depends on the teacher. some are good and some are lazy. one teacher makes us feel like we are bothering her when we try to ask questions. some teachers over explain a lesson and some don't know how to explain anything. One day we played soccer during class and when were bored we watch shows on netflix.
It depends on the teacher. You can pass a class and not do homework because of extra credit. I like to read so i get bored in class when we do discussions because most students don't bother reading so my teachers has to explain what happened. then we and easy open book quiz. some teachers give way too much homework for 1 night like they don't care we have other classes. some teachers give homework as a punishment.
a majority girls are not honest they lie all the time and the there are rules for the "favorite students" and rules for the "non favorites". I was late to school i paid $5 and got detention. other students walk in late to class and say they were "helping" at church. I got my phone taken away because siri stared talking. yesterday girls were using the iPad in class to buy justin briber tickets and they teacher didn't say anything to them.
