Archbishop Hoban High School 5

My son has a learning disability and would not be served by the public school - the teacher's couldn't be bothered. He has more than thrived at Hoban and now is a senior with scholarship and honors program invitations from top tier colleges. He does not play sports but has definitely found a niche in other areas (service, drama and tv production). The teachers truly care about educating the whole child. A wonderful balance of individual attention, extra-curricular opportunities, high expectations and fun. I credit Hoban high school for the wonderful person he is becoming.

This rating and review system is ridiculous. Anyone who has lived in Akron, knows that Hoban is one of the best College Prep / Honors Schools in the STATE, not just the city. There are tough standards just to get in! Hoban is most competitive in Math, Science, and Literature/Journalism. 98% College Acceptance Rate, and more than 90% enroll in College each year. Example Institutions include: Princeton, Holy Cross, Notre Dame, Boston College and John Carroll. Many successful business leaders in Ohio are Hoban Graduates. Many community leaders send their children to this school.

No diversity??? Numerous students travel more than 40 minutes a day to get to this school from different counties and vastly different communities. There are students whose parents are so rich that they pay someone to cook and students whose parents are poor and may not have anything to cook all under the same roof thanks to the wonderful financial aid program that is in place. The great thing is that they all get along and learn and respect one another.

We're the parents of one graduate and one current junior and are extremely pleased. Academically, Hoban completely prepared our eldest to attend a top 20 university where he continues to thrive. The faculty sincerely care about these kids yet they have very high expectations of them - they really push them to achieve. Kids don't seem to put each other in boxes here, and we don't see much in the way of peer pressure, either. Hoban is a family in the truest sense of the word. The president, Brother Ken Haders, is a benevolent dictator. He is a true advocate for teens and you can tell he enjoys this age group, yet he will be tough when it's best for the student. The kids seem to really like and respect him (and all the Brothers on staff). Finally, Hoban just plain makes good people. These kid have a conscience and are good citizens.

I have a senior and a freshman at hoban now. I have been very happy there. The colleges are very impressed with my senior's education and his scores as a result of education at Hoban. Is it perfect? Life isn't perfect but the lessons my children have learned at Hoban will help them in the REAL world.
