Saint Elizabeth High School1

Saint Elizabeth High School has become a disaster since Sister Liam left. The new Principal is horrible and has no people skills and does not care about the students. It seems he is only there for a paycheck and not to embrace support and be a positive role model for the students. He has taken away so much from the students and has made the high school fail. If that school wants to remain open they need to get rid of that horrible man. I attended St. Elizabeth High and will say it felt like a family environment now I don't even go visit the school because everyone who made that school what it use to be is gone due to the new principal's attitude.
St. Elizabeth is a wonderful school. There is also a family enviroment here. The academic programs are awesome. They are programs that are preparing them to succed in college. There could be more extracurricular activities for the students. This school is located in a area that is filled with crime so its so important to keep our kids involved in something positive even after normal school hours. Other than that academically this school is exceptional.
My daughter is a sophmore. Like the size of the school and classes. Most teachers are innovative and creative with subject matter. I am happy with the academics, daughter is A student. Student Athletes have support but the Administration is a bit behind the times. Kids are from all socio-economic levels.
St.Elizabeth (grades 9-12), located in Oakland, CA provides a good sound education. Honored as an 'exemplary school', the student population (approx. 250) is small and closely knit. A sense of 'family' is evident on the campus. The administration, faculty and staff utilize a 'hands on' approach in administration and teaching. Many alumni enter the teaching field. Upon college graduation, many return to St. Elizabeth's as administrators or teachers. A very good academic environment. Advanced Placement (AP)classes are available. A variety of extracurricular and sporting activities are available to students. Sudents are expected to perform at their maximum potential. Upon graduation, the majority of students pursue either a 2 (an associate's) or 4 year (BA/BS)degrees. If you are looking for a school with good academic staandards and a loving and caring teaching environment where students can reach their academic and personal goals with complete administrative support, then St. Elizabeth's is the place to be.
