Monsignor Donovan just launched a football team! They really do "have it all"! 100% of kids graduating are accepted to college and this year seniors earned over 1 million dollars in scholarship money...WOW!

Monsignor Donovan is a wonderful high school experience for students! It is safe, cozy and the students are nice! Academics are really hard, but there is so much support from teachers and staff, the students can and will be very prepared for college. The Athletics are awesome and the all around community is just such a pleasure to be a part of. We love it!

I believe that Monsignor Donovan High School is a wonderful learning environment. The teachers encourage each student to look inside themselves, set goals and reach for their potential.

We were VERY pleased with MDCHS! Best school and staff around. This school is more on a personable level. It's like a family. Wouldn't send my high schooler anywhere else. Teachers are very caring and helpful. Small teacher/student ratio is a plus here.

MDCHS has been an answer to our prayers. The entire staff is very caring and helpful to the students. Because it is a new school, with only 44 students, the extracurricular activities at this time is limited. However, they have big plans that I have no doubt will materialise as the school continues to grow.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
