I'm a sophmore at Nerinx and I can honestly say it is all I wanted from high school. I think it's a special thing when it's obvious that both students and teachers love coming to school and work each day. I'm academically challenged and encouraged to take an active part in my education every day. Nerinx stresses that a girl must know herself and her world, diversity enriches while trust empowers, and all people are called to action. All of these are lessons that will stay with a Nerinx girl not only during high school, but beyond. While I love all of these things so much, my favorite aspect of Nerinx would have to be the community. When I stepped into the front doors on my first day of freshman year I stepped into a new family. It's a place full of love and mutual respect. As typical as this may sound, I really do feel like the girls at Nerinx are my sisters. That's what Nerinx is to me. It's a sisterhood and it's the place I have come to call my second home.
Having graduated from Nerinx in 2004, I must admit that it has taken years to truly gauge the impact it had on me. Throughout my four years at Nerinx I was challenged to think differently, my talents and passions were cultivated, and I was provided with the strong academic base from which I was able to launch my college career. While all of the previously mentioned items are valuable, the most important thing Nerinx taught me was to truly appreciate the diversity found in all people and to love and respect myself. The self-esteem that Nerinx cultivated has propelled me forward and without the time I spent there, I truly do no believe that I would have the courage chase after my dreams no matter how scary they may be.
I attended Nerinx, my mother attended Nerinx, and now my daughters attend. We all were given the freedom to choose the right school for ourselves and I think it says volumes about the school that we all ended up there, especially since we have different personalities, talents, and academic abilities. I think Nerinx is an even better school than when I attended. The curriculum can be tailored to challenge the brightest young woman and extra-curriculars abound for every interest. Most importantly, the school feels more welcoming than I remember. The "class lines" seem to have blurred.
I love Nerinx ever since i stepped foot into the building. Once I enter the doors, and walk down the hallways, the girls are smiling to new faces and to old ones. going to Nerinx lets me feel like i have 619 sisters I can count on. The academic at Nerinx is hard and challenging, but with a little shove from our teachers and hints every once in a while, brings out our best. Rules are strict, and are incredibly enforced which makes us better women. We are phenomenal women, and we are set out to the world to make a difference.
I love the school it is so welcoming and makes all the girls into smart, strong, independent, empowered women.
Nerinx Hall is a wonderful school. Teachers are always willing to help, there is even a 30 minute period daily for time to contact teachers for help, this is also when club meetings are so you do not have to take time after school if you work or play sports. In comparison with other private Catholic highschools it is very diverse, bringing students from all areas of St. Louis together. I loved my experience at Nerinx. It changed me from a shy quiet girl from a small school into an independent, sociable woman. I was very prepared for the challenges of college.
Great school, if your child needs any special attn in regards to ADD or LD not great, of course, dont have to be they choose, but feel they will miss out on some super girls.
Nerinx Hall is a great school. The young women are able to be well prepared for college. The atmosphere of the school is wonderful. The girls are friendly to one another, and they also feel comfortable together. The teachers are well- educated and eager to share their knowledge. They push each student to their highest potential in order to prepare them for life ahead. Each and every member of the school is a loving and caring person, and they are all willing to help each other with anything they may need. It is a great opportunity for those wanting to reach out to the world and make a difference. The athletic program at Nerinx is outstanding. Like the teachers, the coaches push the players to be the best they can be. If you send you child here, you will not regret it.
Nerinx Hall challenged our daughter every year, and she was very prepared for college work when she got there. She felt like the teachers really supported her and were there to help her succeed. They work the girls hard, and yet she and her friends enjoyed every day they were there. They have made friendships that will last a lifetime.
Nerinx Hall really is the best there is. I am a current student at Nerinx and I love it! I truly feel welcomed, and I always wake up excited for the new day. I have made so many great friendships, and I really feel that I have grown as a young woman while attending Nerinx. The teachers are amazing, and the sports and music are fantastic! I would really recommend this school to any girl and her parents!
Nerinx is one of the best schools in the area for young women. They truly instill strong values in the women they educate. The academic program is very challenging and among the best! They have one of the strongest, most successful athletic programs around, as well as an amazing music department and a great number of available clubs and organizations.
Nerinx Hall High School is amazing! It was the perfect fit for my daughter. It combines a challenging education with a friendly enviroment created by the intelligent faculty and student body.
