10 Parent Reviews for St. Edward Central Catholic High School
One has to wonder about a parent complaining about their child's education when they misspell "struggled" (among other words), use capital letters incorrectly and fail to understand the difference between two, to and too. St. Edwards has educated scores of children between my wife's family and mine.
... Read more The school does an outstanding job of pushing the kids to the best of their abilities. We've had kids go on to tip-top level schools to state schools. They were all given the same opportunity to achieve. St. Ed's is an oustanding college preparation high school Your child will be pushed academically. The school also does an excellent job of involving all the kids in outside activities. There is simply no way possible anyone should ever give this school one star. That is an absurd rating.

I have had two children attend St. Edward; one graduated in 2004 and the other is currently enrolled. I find the teachers very dedicated and qualified, the students respectful, and the parents involved. These are key ingredients that make a school work successfully. One comment mentioned no AP classes
... Read more as of 2004. Despite that fact, my son who graduated in 2004 placed out of 3 college courses. Presently there are AP classes at St. Edward as well as extra academic support for students that may struggle to keep up with the curriculum. Though the facility is not fancy, the administration is constantly working toward its improvement as well as advancing the use of technology in the school. Read less

I don't care what anyone says. If you want your child to receive a great education and to enjoy their high school career, then send them to St. Ed's. It's a great school with great people. I was one of the few African Americans who attended this school, and I still made great friends and received

If your a parent, then take it from someone who has already graduated from this school: St. Ed's is a great place to send your kids, and if you want them to receive a great education from some very intelligent people and to enjoy their high school years while there at it, then send your kids there because I promise you that in the end they will not regret it and neither will you.

While St. Edward CCHS provided a safter alternative to public schools in the area, it hardly served as a 'college prep school.' Due to lack of qualified teachers and pre-college (AP) courses, students are no better or even less prepared for college than their public school counterparts.
