At this school, bullying is an integral part of the culture, not only tolerated by the staff, but encouraged, and the staff often participates in it themselves. Students are quite often rowdy both on and off campus--actually more so than at any public school I've seen. Drug use is common, as at public schools, but the goody-two-shoes image Cathedral likes to project makes them hypocrites on that. Not interacting with girls on a daily basis leaves a big hole in a teenage boy's psychological development that a lot of these sad individuals don't seem to mind.You can actually get a good education at a public school; the public schools generally have more resources and you won't be left with this distorted view of the opposite sex born of unfamiliarity.

Cathedral High School in El Paso is truly unique. Besides the excellent academics, the school also promotes a sense of brotherhood and service. Young men who attend learn how to be truly Christian and to have integrity in a world which is truly in need of both. I recommend it highly.

This is the best school in Texas. The bonds created with my classmates will last forever. In other high schools the students are only teach how to study and read a book. At Cathedral you are taught how to succeed in life. They will give you the tools for being a successful entrepreneur, 98% of students go to college and the 2% go to the military. This school changed my life. This will be the high school of my sons.

Excellent, well rounded curriculum based on the principles of faith. Great counselors especially for college admissions. Good balance between academic and extra-curricular activities.

This schoool is dangerous for your son. In my first year I got into 3 fights and the etachers would just watch and then after it was over they would just suspend us for a day like if nothing happened. There are fights everyday in the parking lot of the school. There is also rich kids who make fun of your old car or mistreat you because of financial reasons. There is also constant dirty talking about moms( and i mean nasty) and lots of drug influence. 40% of the people i knew smoked weed. Also if you want your son to have social sills with girls DO NOT SEND HIM HERE. not worth the 6k

This is the worst school I've ever seen. The students are encouraged to 1) treat girls as nonentities and 2) bullying between the boys is acceptable. The administrations 'boys will be boys' approach combined with a lack of discipline make this a school to avoid.

My son has been at Cathedral High School he has matured as an individual and as a human being.Cathedral has what no other school offers to reach high goals academically, as well as spiritually. They catechize every day so when he will grow up he will look back on his years as a Cathedral student, and be forever grateful for what he is,Cathedral was a part of him.

About these ratings

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.
