All three of my children have attended this school. We are Catholic. I believe that when you choose a high school, you choose a community and we have been very happy with the KCHS community overall. If your child does what they need to do, there is no limit to the college they can attend. There are enough AP classes to make it challenging and service is required of all students, which makes them more apt to do more. Also, unlike the big publics nearby, your student can be involved in multiple activities without having had to dedicate your life to it.

i am a freshman at Catholic and love the whole feel of the school. Catholic is a very warm and welcoming school. not one time have i heard if a senior beat up a freshman. i have all A's right now. the teachers are wonderful and talk to you like they really know you. Catholic has been named one of the Top 50 Catholic High Schools.

I enjoyed my time a Catholic. As a protestant I thought they were very respectful and tolerant of my beliefs. The staff and faculty were great. From the time I walked through the door I felt very comfortable. My ACT score also went up four points after just one year at Catholic. Amazing school!

I feel like this school is great. there is only a few minor problems with students, however, the faculty, staff, programs, sports, and classes are of those unmatched. catholic is a beautiful school and will remain a very high privileged school.

Catholic is a great school-if you are a white catholic. As the mother of an Africa-American child who attends Catholic, I have been relatively displeased with the faculty, and the students condesending views on race and the religion that you worship. I hope and know in my heart that the Catholic faculty and students will become more open-minded towards race in the future.

I currently have a student at KCHS and she has never been happier. We are pleased with all aspects of the school, with the exception of the front office staff. They could be a bit more personal and friendly.

Catholic High is a great school, however it has a few problems. I believe Catholic would be a good school for any Roman Catholic however, they are extremely non tolerant of other religions.

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.
