After doing my graduate work at Kolbe I found the students to be articulate and very reflective regarding their own learning. While listening to their stories I learned, again, how influential teachers are for individual students. Thank you for renewing my faith in education.

This school angers me to no end sometimes. A teacher has called his whole class pathetic for not getting answers right, while another teacher has used foul language towards a student and has not been punished to my knowledge. A student can earn a detention by not wearing a belt too. Also, this school 's summer reading tests are horribly made. The exam expects you to remember the smallest detail, and if you fail you will have to pay an astonishing amount of money to retake it in the summer. And if you fail, you will be held back for something so unimportant. Lastly, the school can get radical at times. One teacher has wasted entire class periods debating on how homosexual people are wrong and the school itself has encouraged students to travel to another state to protest something that does not effect them just for the sake of religion. One teacher has even insulted other religions and atheists. The only positive things I can comment about are the principal and vice principal, a majority of the staff some of the subjects. You can also retake CERTAIN tests too.

This school gives special treatment to certain students. This school is a joke would not advise anybody to send their child here

I graduated from Kolbe in 1988. Since then I have completed a Bachelors, Masters and am currently working on an advanced degree. In addition I have one daughter who graduated from Kolbe in 2009 who is pursuing higher education. I have another daughter going into Kolbe beginning fall 2010. Kolbe has provided the tools needed to succeed for generations. 'Work Hard and Be Nice!'

I just transferred from another catholic high school that is supposed to be so high and mighty and it was not that school was out of control and lacks self discipline and control....Kolbe Cathedral is the school to go to it is strict and it is true what they say it is the place you can go and learn.

I'm a graduate of KCHS, and since my graduation in 2001, I have obtained a BA in mathematics from Emmanuel College in Boston, MA and currently work in the field of finance in downtown Boston. While attending Kolbe, I played varsity basketball for four years; was a team captain; won a state championship; was named team MVP in 2001; and was voted one of the top 15 players in the SWC. Kolbe is a great school for a student to become disciplined, gain a greater understanding of the Catholic religion, and build substantial relationships with teachers.
