There are just as many problems at Seton! The HS Principal ignores bad behavior and allows bullying to continue in the halls, gym, etc. The teachers try to interrupt the bullies, but can only go so far, as they fear loosing their jobs and are bullied by Mr. R. It is a pathetic excuse for Christian behavior!
I have had my kids enrolled in Catholic schools since they were in preschool. Although I can think of other ways that I could have spent those tuition dollars, none of them would have had a better return on the investment for our family. My kids are in high school now and I have never regretted the decision to keep them in Seton. They are getting an excellent education with individualized attention. Their teachers know them! Is Seton a perfect place? No way. We are all humans with our human failings, and these are all kids who do kid things. But is Seton a great place for a kid to grow up? Oh yeah! The teachers at Seton help the kids see the things they do as right or wrong and guide them a better direction when they need it. Not only are they being prepared academically for their next step in life, but they are being guided morally to be the best person they can be for the rest of their life. Now that is a great return on your investment!
Seton school is good but it struggles keeping kids from 8th grade to 9th grade. The tuition doubles to around $5,500/student. Funds are available to reduce the pain of tuition the 1st year in High School. The average reduction is around 20%. After the first year your on your own. There is no reduction in tuition in High School if you have more than one child. Some kids get reduced tuition if there parents work for the school. The priest has helped some families attend. I do not know where or if there are funds for families in need. It is a big drain on the family income. The senior class is usually around 15-20. There are clicks just like everywhere. If sports are the reason you want your child to attend you may be disappointed. They may be on a team but may sit the bench. I hope we are making the right decision sending are kids to Seton. Most teachers at Seton are excellent. It does amaze me how disrespectful some kids are to their teachers and classmates even in a Catholic school. Seton is a member of IHSAA. There are good coaches an not so good coaches. Seems like winning is paramount to some coaches over the development of the child just like public schools.
