15 Parent Reviews for Benedictine High School

Benedictine is not the same school it once was. The current headmaster and the present "board" are not qualified to be in the positions in which they are in. The board has parents with kids at competing schools; no current parents sit on the board and many of the board members do not even show up at ...  Read more

Honestly all of these parents writing responses can't give you a full inside review of what our school is ACTUALLY like. I'm tired of these bad reviews that give us a bad name. My teachers are some of the most committing I've ever had (and k-8 I went to public school), they're willing to stay with you ...  Read more

The board and current headmaster are the reason my son (current alumni with a middle school-aged kid) will not be attending my alma mater. They feel the need to plead poverty while purchasing a million dollar home for the headmaster to reside in. Very dismissive of alumni and current parents who provide ...  Read more

Teachers are not required to be licensed by the state, and many are not. Extremely conservative catholicism. Inconsistent discipline. Aloof and non-communicative administration. Lots of turnover among administration and faculty. Financial problems and legal issues...Lots of "drama." Constant pleas for ...  Read more

I must disagree with the negative comment below. This school was an answer to our prayers. Our son struggled academically throughout elementary and middle school. He has done nothing but thrive at Benedictine. His self confidence has improved tremendously and his academic sucess cannot be measured. ...  Read more

The school is poorly run. They have an orientation that demeans newcomers; the teachers are not committed to your child, all behaviors that contribute to poor self esteem. The teachers are quick to place children on academic probation and does not offer any help or program that gets them from their ...  Read more

If the school gives you financial aid; because you have limited funds; and no money for a tutor; and your child is not sharpest knife in the drawer, BE WARE! Is not in compliance with the NCLB law and is unable to bridge the gap from failure to success. He will struggle and become unmotivated. Will ...  Read more

Academically the school is strong in many areas, but is very hit-or-miss in areas such as math and science. Technology education is virtually non-existent. There is a great interest in "recruiting" strong athletes under the guise of giving lower socio-economic students a chance at a better education. ...  Read more

Once upon a time I would have heartily recommended this school, but it's most recent incarnation has been a sad letdown. The school claims to have excellent academics, but that is not the reality. Course offerings are meager at best, and the methods and resources are woefully outdated. Their "classical" ...  Read more
