The classrooms have no AC so during hot days you would literally sweat to death in your seat. Also teachers were very unorganized and selfish with their time if you weren't there favorite.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

The faculty and teachers are terrible, they all look down upon the students and always play favorites. Also there's no way to go around it because of how the small the school is, so everyone knows everyone. Also, it was very common to hear faculty and staff gossiping about each other or other students.

I went here all four years and it definitely isn't for everyone. While it isn't a *bad* school, administration could be better as well as the ridiculous rules when it comes to honors/AP courses. If you're not a religious person, like any Catholic environment, you're not going to enjoy the religion classes or the retreats, which are very religious. If you are into that stuff, on the other hand, you'll enjoy them. Best perk of the school is it's pretty safe and bullying is very rare.

The administration is horrible. My child attends the school now and I am very disappointment in the way they run the school. If I had my choice I would have selected another school basically a waste for a private education. The teaching is horrible and is mediocre as it does not stack up to some of the other private schools out there.

St. Monica is actually one of the best coed schools. It feels like your second home. Some teachers are nice enough to let you turn in your homework late, but it's rare. Mrs. Evans is the best and chilliest staff, Ms. K Janson is the best English teacher , & Mr. Rodriguez is very caring.

St. Monica is a lovely Catholic high school for students to grow and thrive. Although the community is small and tight-knit, there are ample opportunities for students to develop their strengths and interests (academic decathlon, AP/Honors classes, athletics, campus ministry, performing arts, student clubs/government).

I am very happy with this school...I can't sy enough good things about it. There is a strong sense of community, and the faculty genuinely care for the students and their well-being. It is a tough school and the students have to work hard, but the students will be well prepared for college. I can say this first-hand as I am an alumni from St. Monica.

Honestly, don't send your child here. So many of the students here are forced to go because of their parents. If you ask the students, "do you like this school?" majority will say no. PROS of the school:- great location, no bullies, the retreats are nice, clean, beautiful bathrooms and classrooms, small class size, you don't have to worry about what to wear, tutoring is available for almost every class, the school is pretty high tech which is nice, CONS:- MOST but not all faculty members seem like they hate their jobs, it feels like a jail--> they care too much about dress-code and drug checks which causes distrust and a terrible relationship between the faculty and students. TOO strict--you can get a saturday school for not wearing the correct tie on mass day. Academically: it's nice that the transcripts weigh the AP and honors classes BUT there are many periods that conflict so you're limited to which classes you want to take. Also students are forced to take summer school to cover the requirements of this school (even if you're smart) and if you're coming as a freshman they may REQUIRE you to RETAKE a math class that you've already taken.

I was discriminated and harassed because of my race everyday by students, teachers and the principal. Everyday at lunch people threw food at me. No one helped me.

St. Monica has been a second home to our kids. The student body and faculty truly are like a family. Most teachers are willing to help students reach their potential whether it is in honors and AP's or regular college prep classes. Students can be as involved as they want. Sports teams are doing well especially the Girls Basketball team that won their division and went to State. The one area that needs to be addressed is the college counseling. Not enough attention to it early on and too much pushing for out of state and private schools. That said, it is being worked on and I see improvement. I highly recommend it!
