I love Holy Name! The teachers are great so are the students! I think we are all close and everyone is just so nice. There's something for everyone there. Our girls soccer team and hockey team are playing very well! Our campus ministry are excellent. Holy Name was the best decision I've ever made!

While I attended Holy Name it was apparent that the handful of us from Cleveland with broke families were outcasted. It occurred moreso later on, when my sister and a friends sister were attending. When it got worse, I emailed, politely, the assisstant principal inquiring what was going on with the bullying. His response was condescending to me directly, telling me "people from Cleveland tend to exaggerate things". I lost the little resapect I once maybe had for that school, which revolved heavily around sports and the rich kids.

By far best academic high school education available. Other HS are well known as great schools but if you peel away the sports, academically HN is the best quality.

Do not listen to anyone who tells you that Holy Name is a bad school. I graduated a few years ago with a 2.9 GPA, and now in college I have a 3.7. The school is like a giant family. Everyone gets along and there is almost no bullying whatsoever. Send your kids to this school, I know I will. ALL HAIL HOLY NAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Because they helped me get through high school while I was experiencing great difficulties.

A semester in college has been enough to make me realize I'll never have the opportunity to attend a school with a faculty that values morality and spirituaity as much as the HN staff does. -09

Th academics are excellent. The school spirit is quite evident in all aspects. The theater and music is exceptional in professionalism in production. I am proud to have my children at Holy Name.

Holy Name High School is a fantastic place. The values learned within it's walls are life-long values. I made the best memories of my life there and met my best friends there. The education is phenominal and I was more than prepared for college. The community is unlike anywhere else. There is a magic to the place.

Holy Name is an Excellent School for all young men and young women. They excel in spiritual development, academic opportunities and social/activities for all types of students. I would highly recommend this Coed Catholic Education which is a comprehensive college preparotory school. I am a graduate, my husband is a graduate and our daughter is a sophomore.

My son is in his 2nd year at Holy Name. He loves the school very much! The teachers have worked hard to make learning interesting. He has grown so much spiritually. I plan on sending my other two there a well.

The best part of Holy Name is the tutoring services that my son got in Math and English. Those two teachers in the van are the most caring teachers that my son has had. If it wasn't for that extra help he received, he would not have made it through.

I had the best time at Holy Name. I had caring, exciting teachers & great fellow students. It has a Catholic environment & a great focus on becoming good human beings, first and foremost. It really is a family & I received a quality education I still refer to today.

I have a daughter that is about to graduate from Holy Name High School and I can honestly say that she loves it there. She feels that it was the best experience of her life so far. She was very involved and took part in a lot of the activities, and I think that makes a huge difference. She truly loved her time at Holy Name and would not have it any other way. She will miss it terribly when she moves on to college, but I think HN has made her the best possible person she can be.

Three kids that graduated from Holy Name and all three had a unique but wonderful experiences. Two in college and one out of recently graduated. The school is constantly moving in a positive direction and provides a warm family atmosphere. Provides AP and honors classes but also will work with a struggling student.

The building itself is in horrible condtion, its like taking a step back in time. The teachers do not teach the students, they have the memorize thousands of facts just so they can pass the OGT, and it's overwhelming, it was for my daughter and she is now struggling in college, after getting straight A's throughtout grade-school. Holy Name does not prepare students for life after high school, and I will not be sending my other kids to that school

The students and administration at this school are A-l. Students come from diverse backgrounds and I have found them to be well-rounded and classy. Administration is always willing to go the extra mile with parents and students. The sports programs, as academics, are constantly improving. This is a class-act school going in a positive direction.

The biggest waste of time, i'd have rather sent my son to a public school then waste the money. The students are snobby and impolite. The teachers are arrogant. The athletic programs and after school activities are horrible, do not sned your student to Holy Name.

I am currently in 10th grade at HN and today I'm proud to say that a few days ago, the girls soccer team won the Division II state title. Most of the teachers are good, especially Mr. Slanina. I have him for speech and english. He is by far the best teacher in this school

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

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.
