My child transferred into Regina High School and was horribly bullied. Transferred out after one year. Very little help with bullying situations. Not much acceptance at this school unless you've been there since grade school. Many students transfer in and out of this school due to being picked on. Definitely not behavior that Jesus would approve of! Bullying happens everywhere but not as frequently as at Regina.
Three of my children graduated from Regina and two more are currently attending. We have been so pleased with the school's focus on academics, the integration of religious instruction even outside the religion classes, and the personal involvement by the wonderful teachers, coaches, and staff. The small school size offers involvement in sports and the arts for all students, regardless of ability. The K-12 campus allows mentoring opportunities for high school students with elementary students, and parents are encouraged to volunteer not only with extracurricular activities, but also in the classrooms. Over the years, we have felt Regina to be a second family.
Thankful for Regina! My daughter started pre-school at Regina and graduated from Regina High School in 2008. She is now having a very successful freshman year at the University of Iowa. The Regina teachers (from pre-school on) did an outstanding job preparing my daughter for her future. She has solid academic skills, great study skills and confidence in her ability to learn. Hats off to all those hard-working teachers who provided my daughter with a solid education.
You get the small town atmosphere with an excellent academic setting at RHS. The Catholic education you receive here isn't just in the religion classes. You can see it filter through to other aspects of the education here. For a school of its size, they have a lot of extra curricular sports, clubs and activities. Their campus is amazing and each year they have a Fall Fun Festival that brings the entire Regina Community together. Go Regals!
I love this school. It is the best school in the world! Small and get to know everyone. Friendly students. Great staff! Excellent lunches. Send your kids here if you are moving from a small intimate school.
