I pulled my kids out after their Freshman year. Backstabbing, politics, and unfair treatment are just a few of my girls' experiences. The school is absolute garbage. The teachers are mediocre at best, and special treatment is given to those in cliques. Certain people are treated better than others, and usually, it is the athletes. Minorities are welcome, but it semms they are there only to fill the quota they seem to need to justify their constant blathering about diversity. Do not go here.

My two daughters graduated from Regina High School in 2010 and 2011. They received a great education there, and are both doing very well in college. As a matter of fact, a couple of college teachers inquired where my daughter went to high school, because they were impressed with the quality of the papers she wrote, and used them for class examples!

I pulled my daughter out of the school after her Junior year. I was aghast at the politics involved, and how my daughter was spoken down to for inquiring about military service. I had simply gotten tired of the whole 'military is bad' approach, regardless of branch/career choices. My daughter went on to a public school, graduated valedictorian, and the entered the US Navy where she is now completing her Bachelors degree (for free), and is about to submit a commissioning package as an Intelligence Officer. My daughter used the Navy recruiter in Sterling Heights at Schoenherr/Hall Rd.

Some things never change. There are always a few who don't want to be there (and shouldn't). Two of my sisters and I went to Regina. The fourth sister wanted to be in a co-ed school and complained constantly her freshman year. So much so that our parents told her to go to public school and they saved the tuition. She is not as well educated, but got her wish. Love it or leave it! I am so fortunate to have attended this great school. We live in Canton, so my daughter couldn't attend Regina, but went to Ladywood in Livonia and I found they had Regina's similar expectations both academically and socially. Participate and work with the school and you won't call it politics, you will call it school spirit. Regina, You Rock!! Sign me a proud graduate of Regina.

I went to Regina and wouldn't send my kids there to save my life. I wasn't given the education or attention needed to be able to be successful in college, it took me longer than usual to adjust. I felt that the politics and "image" of the school were more important the education itself. The curriculum is lacking, I never learned about history passed World War I, which was crammed in at the end of the year; meaning I never learned about WWII, the Vietnam War, the Korean War, anything. There were many mediocre teachers being held at a mediocre standards.

I am not impressed at all with this school. They really need to clean house and build something all can be proud of. Highly political and questionable ethics.

Take it for what it is - a school with a great/safe environment compared to most public schools, a mediocre academic program that's behind some of the better public school districts and lots of politics involved in all aspects. Unfortunately, they don't play fair especially when it comes to student atheletes!

I graduated from Regina and am a parent of a current student. Had I not received an excellent education, I would not have made the commitment to send here there. She was the only student from her grade school to attend Regina, and in her first year, she has made many friends. I told her to be prepared to work hard and she managed to thrive academically. The front office staff and administration is terrific and always willing to help. The teachers are very professional and knowledgable. The new facility is beautiful! The overall experience is up to the student; if you want to make the most of your high school years and enjoy all your school has to offer, you will have a four-year education and memories to be proud of! If you grudgingly attend and complain the whole time, you'll waste away wonderful opportunities!

I attended Regina High School, and it was the best expreience of my life. The things that I learned there academically and socialy have stayed with me. I was shocked to read some of the negaitve reviews. When I attended the family values were so strong. The kids mostly came from the Catholic grade schools and the family involvment was great. Best decision of my life to attend.


Posted April 11, 2010

I am a freshman at Regina and so far its okay. It was kind of a culture shock when i went there because i was one of the few black freshman there. The school that I attended previously was just the opposite, (mostly all black not that many white kids). The only thing that I don't reallie like that is kinda hard to make good friends and that alot of the people that you do make friends with, actually stab you in the back.

I think Regina is over rated, they claim to want diversity in students, but once you are enrolled the student of different races are not treated fairly. You have only one race of students on any of the sports teams. The only thing I can see from my point of view is they (the school) is only interested in minorities to for fill a quota for enrollment purposes.

I am an alumni of Regina. I think it is a great school. I learned a lot and the academic difficulty is very high. I think it is a very friendly place and had a great experience at the school.


Posted October 3, 2009

All students that graduate from Regina go on to college and perform well in higher education because they are all very well prepared. Many graduates are quite successful in their careers, since they have attributed their success to their fine education from Regina High School.

Well, from what I can tell as a sophmore, and a Regina student, Regina's a great school. I know some girls don't like it, but I think they are actively trying to dislike it. As long as a girl goes with the flow and finds some stable friendships, it's a great place. The only reason someone would be bullied would be if they were bullying someone else. That kind of thing doesn't fly with us, and we'll defend girls who don't deserve the treatment a bully would give them. Not that there's many. Only girls who, once again, try to dislike it would have any problem. So, I would tell any girl who's being told to go by her parents to just calm down and stop resisting the idea. I know a few girls who hated the idea of coming to an all-girls school, but they have a great time.

I am a freshman at Regina Highschool and it seems like an incredible school! I was very excited to be attending Regina. My first day of school was great! Everyone was so nice and welcoming there. It is very hard to make friends in highschool, especially if you are in your first year. But, there are all sorts of different girls there and I am sure anyone would be able to make friends! There are a lot of new and young teachers at Regina this year. I don't know about the people who didn't enjoy Regina but I don't know what someone wouldn't like about the school. I think it is great!(:

I feel this school is very over rated. My daughter only did the one year and is very happy not to return for next year. The teachers do not know how to teach high school students. The clubs they have they do nothing with them. As for the school having family values, I never saw it unless you were in the click. Was very dissatified for what we paid.

I attend Regina now and I absolutely love it. I completely disagree with the comment about 'Unless you are rich, beautiful, or a jock you are a no one.' I think that all of the students at the school welcomed me and I can only think of a few people that I do not get along with very well. But of course, you have this at every school. I also get along with every teacher that I have. There are many extracurricular activities, and I think that everyone can find at least something that they are interested in. There is no other High School that I would rather be going to, and I thank God and my parents for allowing me to go to Regina.

I don't know about that last one. I graduated in 2006 from regina. In my 4 years there there were so many different types of people. I didn't know hardly any rich girls for one... it wasn't like marian or anything. People were all very nice, kind, firiendly. I had a great experience there. I thought the friends I made there were the best part about the school! I hated many of the classes I had to take, I didn't like many of the teachers because they didn't seem to know what they were talking about, and they were really lacking on a good amount and diverse clubs/extra curriculars. I understand that there have been some changes since I was there (fired a handful of teachers..) and the move could bring in some different students.. but the school was overall nice.

Regina is a great school academicly but the girls are really awful. Unless you are rich, beautiful, or a jock you are a no one. My daughter and her 2 friends suffered dearly with this for 2 years until I decided to take her out. The comments about the councelors is also correct. They did nothing to help my daughter.

My daughter completed her first year (2006-2007)at Regina. She is very quiet and didn't know anyone on her first day of classes. Her fellow classmates made her feel comfortable and in time she became more outgoing. My daughter is very focused and needs to be among serious students. The honor level classes challenged her. My daughter is deeply religious and attending Regina is spiritually comforting to her. I predict that this school is going to prepare my daughter for entering an excellent university.

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.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MME test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
