I don't know that it happens much.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree

Mr. Kimberly is fantastic and has really changed the culture of Memphis Catholic. He is always there and always available and really works hard for our kids.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
When things were changing with the new principal, I thought this might lose value but it’s actually gotten better. Their big thing now is mind, heart, body, and soul education.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers are awesome. They work extremely hard to help out students, sometimes into the late hours of the evening.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
The zero tolerance policy can be harsh but I get it.

I want to second the previous parent. All the old reviews pertain to the former principal and staff. Many staff are the same but they don’t act like they did under the old leadership. I’ve been here for a while and it’s great to finally see Memphis Catholic headed in the right direction. Teachers, the staff, and the principal care and really work to make this the option it should be for our children.



- a
As a parent, I feel I need to address some of the previous comments that are erroneous. One, all of the teachers have degrees, many of the with Master's. In regard to the new principal, most complaints stem from his enforcement of rules, or from previous parents disgruntled by the firing of a basketball coach. The school also *does* have a school lunch program that is part of Shelby County. As with most online reviews, it is probably best to go and tour the school for yourself to see if it is a good fit for your child/family. As is the case with most schools, what works for 85% of the students and their families does not often work with the other 15%. I would gladly suggest Memphis Catholic as a good choice, but that doesn't mean that the school doesn't have its challenges. My child is now going to college, and that has everything to do with the teaching staff and community at Memphis Catholic. My child is the first in my family to go to college, and I was gravely concerned at first that he was going to choose not to go. He attended Memphis Catholic from 7-12th grade.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
As with most Catholic schools, learning differences are not always addressed, particularly in regard to students that have IEPs. This is mostly due to a lack of resources.


Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
Current leadership (2016) is very effective. Some parents struggle with the behavioral system in regard to the Middle School.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
This school has a strong Catholic community background.
