The bullying incident went way better than expected. There is a zero tolerance policy so there will never be a "next time". The perpetrator apologized, they shook hands and there hasn't been an issue since. Kids at this school are great. Parent's very involved. What we like best: the block schedule, ...  Read more

There is nothing positive to say about this horrible academic institution. This is not a college preparatory school. Only about 2 percent of the seniors go on to 4 year colleges while the rest of the students attend community colleges. The only thing the Serra administration cares about is football. ...  Read more

As a graduate student, I will tell you the "truth" about Serra, because only a "student" can give you the proper critique. Serra is "safe;" however, the school's academic system is poor.

And why ...  Read more

We've had the chance to have our students go to Lourdes, in Europe and a huge trip to France as well. We've gotten the chances to speak with ...  Read more

My son attended under Father Pilato's administration from 2000-2005. I truly cannot say enough about the faculty, support staff and counselors. The school afforded my son an academically-challenging and well-rounded high school experience. There was a real family atmosphere there which nurtured my ...  Read more

I have been at Serra H. S. only twice, and I am already enchanted with it for many reason among them: the beautiful and clean school with the beautiful paintings, chapel and Our Lady's home, the warm welcome by administrators, Father Pilato, the staff, teachers, and students, the family atmosphere, ...  Read more
