Perhaps the reviewer should have paid more attention in English class. (Lots of run on sentences) The fact is that most children who attend St. Roman do take advanced classes at Marquette, St. Thomas More and Pius. The scholarships earned at those schools also indciate our children's preparedness for college. All of our area Catholic High Schools have HIGH expectations. St Thomas More also offers classes at different levels to help those children that struggle. How is that a lower expectation?
This school is a great school but it's standards are way too low. This school is perfect for those who plan to go to high schools with lower expectations such as Thomas More. It's size is it's main limiting factor as there are not enough resources to adequately prepare a student for more demanding programs. The teachers are great but my fellow students were so far behind so the lack of advanced programs really hindered my learning. I remember one of my classes was so easy that I wrote a paper the morning it was due in 10 minutes and I still got a 97%. I recommend that if you wish for your child to be challenged you look for alternatives immediately.
My wife and I transferred our middle school-aged daughter here from a nearby school which demanded more homework but failed to provide the teacher assistance to back it up. The result was that my wife and I, both educated professionals,struggled to help our daughter stay ahead of it each evening. St.Roman teachers have been much easier to stay in contact with as needed. Several of them have had real-life careers in fields outside of teaching,which adds useful perspective to students as they begin to consider careers. Instruction in science and math are excellent at the upper grade school levels.
