My daughter is a senior at CDH. She loves her school. I'm impressed by the friendly supportive feel of the school. When we go to conferences, the teachers seem to be as enthusiastic about the school as our daughter is. They have developed a peer to peer mentoring program that is really great for the new and younger students. New students are mentored by selected seniors for help and support. Most importantly, her friends and classmates are great kids who actually can hold down a conversation with an adult. She hasn't been bullied or harassed, and if she was the school and other students wouldn't tolerate it. Lastly, the academics are rigorous and students can't just slide by. Every student gets an ipad, and can turn in assignments electronically. Thumbs up for CDH.

My daughter just started at CDH and she loves it. In this day and age to have a child actually enthusiastic about going to school feels pretty great.

Two of my sons have graduated from CDH and had a very rewarding high school years regarding learning how to take charge and becoming an adult. Good teachers that put their time and effort into teaching regardless of the pay amazes me. I really respect these people for their dedication.

Cretin does an excellent job in preparing young adults for college and the challenges that they will face in the future. It grooms the leaders of the future with outstanding academics and provides a strong background in morals and ethics.

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.
