This school has a great chance in becoming a good school, but unfortunately I think they don t want to progress. I studied in this school, and had a difficult time reaching other students academically in college. They need to reach a better level in science specifically, the math and English is good, but science is very, very poor. the good thing in this college is how the religious life helps you become a better person, but academically it coulod be be better.
Being public school teachers, we can safely say we DID NOT want to send our child to public school, and by comparison, the education our child got at FYHS was far more rigorous than the public school curriculum, and prepared him extremely well for college. Its a small school, but it also has a small-town feel to it where everyone knows everyone, and everybody is pitching in to help out, mixed with Catholic tradition in a humble fashion (you won't find the elitist ambiance of other area Catholic schools). Understandably, that environment is not for everyone's tastes, but our son certainly flourished in that environment - and its doubtful that would have happened at a public school or an elitist private school.
Could be a great school, but the academic level is really low, like mentioned below, all they care is about money, and yes they don't respect your privacy. If you plan on entering this school prepare to be manipulated and as always charged for ridiculous things.
