30 Parent Reviews for Archbishop Molloy High School
Very sorry I sent my child to Molloy, He went on full scholarship to the school. He had great marks, no discipline problems, but very I was very upset with the quality of teaching and the lack of a Christian atmosphere in the school. The Open House is a "show" and not the everyday life at Molloy. My

Great school. I graduated back in 2010 and I felt the school provided a great foundation and education for my development. The school, at least when I went there, had good teachers, good counselors, good clubs/after school activities, and good facilities. I know that some people have said that the school

I am 2.5 years away from graduating medical school and I felt that Molloy prepared me well for my undergraduate courses. Like anywhere, you get what you put in. If you go there and don't want to be there, don't talk to anyone, or don't pursue your own education, your not going to learn as much as you can and you won't like it. The review about the parent complaining about the lack of parent chaperones for 9th graders was pretty funny though. There are kids in NYC that commute by themselves by the sixth grade! Read less

My daughter didn't love it here but she was safe and got a good education during her 4 years. Some teachers should not be there, like the art teacher who doesn't believe in God? The Science teacher who imitates a Jerry Springer show for DNA testing? The English teacher who allows cursing in a play?

They don't allow parent chaparones in 9th grade - like in grammer school for dances - yet they allow inappropriate dancing. Those are negative memories. The positive memories are the activities to promote school spirit i.e basketball games, international day, apparel - great assistance for college search and application. There are some quality teachers who are engaging and connect wtih the students in friendly appropriate ways, some interesting classes and clubs. If your lucky to be in the AP classes, you'll do great for college acceptances, spiritual growth opportunities via mass services - although I think they coudl do more in the area of engaging students to practice the faith. The reputation of Molloy is still good. Hopefully it will continue to earn it. Read less

The school community is second to none and the athletics are top notch. However, as a science major, I was very unprepared for college having graduated from this school. Also, there should be more AP classes available to students. Overall Molloy is a good school and I enjoyed my four years there thoroughly,

have the grades for Molloy will put down St. Francis prep as their first choice to ensure they male a school. That is not to say St Francis Prep is not a good school. They do have some advantages but Molloy is clearly a step above. The Sports program is also second to none and have had nationaly ranked

The soccer program is also one of the best in the City ranking as high as #2 recently out of all Public and City Highschools in the City. As far as having clicks this can be said for every highschool. I have kids that came from a local Grammar School along with 8 other kids from their class and they naturally stick together as they have know each other since preschool and travel together. The school does have many sports teams and clubs that the kids can join which will help in making friends if that is a concern. Read less

Molloy is trying to be the St Francis Prep of Queens. Don't be fooled at their Open House. The teachers are unapproachable and the other students have attitudes. There are major clicks throughout the school regarding those in clubs and sports teams. Worst decision I ever made to select Molloy, regardless

One of the best decisions of my life was to attend Molloy. Although I graduated in 1971, I still have great friends from my class and other classes, as well as among the faculty from that time. I have been involved for most of my years since graduating in some aspect or other. I have been involved
