I am a student at Pensacola Catholic and I would like to say that this is by far the most amazing and helpful school I have Ever attended. As a student who attends mostly honors classes I do say that the teachers who have been here longer know what there doing and will get the student the best education. Whether or not the teachers are nice dosent matter its the education that matters and if you want to be treated better get out of our school or stop complaining about things that wont change. Sincerely, A student.

Sadly, this school is aware that they are the only private high school in the area with a student population large enough to offer a variety of sports and academic programs. Therefore, they don't feel the need to treat students and their parents fairly, since they know there are virtually no other options within 50 miles or so. The principal as well as many of the faculty members have been there 20-30 years, and they are beyond caring anymore. The younger, newer faculty, for the most part, are excellent. When considering this school for your child, be prepared tto endure a very frustrating 4 years during which any concerns you have will not be addressed. That said, my youngest child, who is currently a junior at CHS, is working very hard and achieving mostly A grades in mostly Honors and AP classes. I would not, however, choose this school for my child if I had it to do over again.

I agree with the post from 9/22/10. My sentiments exactly!! There are a few amazing teachers here, but there are many changes that could be made in this school.

My son has just transferred from the a public high school. His joy is overflowing. He says he cannot believe how calm and quiet the classrooms are. The staff has been completely on top of graduation requirements and college entrance. This is a 180 from the public schools. I can't say enough good things.

Tuition is very reasonable compared to other areas of America. Teachers are very dedicated. Many are young and have a good background. Students dress very well. Sports are important and there is lots of fun. It is very safe there, and students are friendly. Parents tend to be professional, well-educated people, concerned with their children's education and are involved in the activities. There is a new library and the rest of the campus is modern and well equipped. 98% of the students go on to college.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
