Benedictine High School Reviews
Review of Benedictine
Ask any student and they can confirm that athletes are given preferential treatment and given grades they have not earned, allowed to behave in an unacceptable manner and excluded from punishment. They are doing a disservice to all students. They have too many teachers who are coaches first. My son who is not an athlete and his friends are fed up with this culture. Parent complaints have gone unanswered. Maybe the new principal will make a change.
I have not been extremely happy with Benedictine High School and have debated every year whether to keep my son at this school. While there some very caring teachers, many do not understand what it means to help a student who is struggling. They have very few programs designed to support students and their athletes are failing classes left and right with no support system in place for them. The athletic program is in shambles and from what I hear they could care less about the minority students they have.
When comparing them to other catholic high schools I would say they are near the bottom. One positive is that of all the catholic schools, Benedicitine might be the most diverse school if that is important to you.
I too disagree with the very first post. Benedictine is a good school and its mission has always been to help students grow academically, athletically, and spiritually. The commitment of current parents, teachers, and alumni is incredible. The school is moving in the right direction under the current administration. It is unfortunate to see negative posts. There is no "brainwashing" going on here. By the way, the principal does understand tradition. Benedictine was founded on tradition, and still exists because of that tradition. The Priory System and laptop program are helping shape Benedictine for the future. Just look at Moeller and what they have done with these two things. Great things are happening at the Home of Champions.
First comment is misleading. School is great and helps kids succeed.
I disagree with the previous review. As a parent, ( and mom) I observed a very hard line of personal accountability that I think is very important for young men to learn. They do not follow up and remind you to do your work. There are amazing opportunities for help if you are willing to ask and make the effort to pursue it. I have witnessed incredibly dedicated educators (a large portion of which are alumni) and staff who go above and beyond to help young men succeed. They change lives for those who want to change.
The environment is culturally and economically diverse and there is a sense of responsibility and camaraderie with the young men- there is a huge and strong alumni base who network and support their Alma mater. You will get out so much if you can be willing to get invested. Maybe if you change your attitude to one of gratitude- you may begin to see what an amazing gift your family are giving you in their sacrifice for your education, spiritual and personal development.
Not the school you think. I am so sorry my parents sent me here. Teachers are not helpful. Administration is useless and backs the teachers no matter what. If you are not a legacy don't bother to come here. Forced to use a computer (and pay for repairs) that we really don't need. Either you're brainwashed into loving it or you hate it. No in between. Principle stresses tradition but does not know the meaning. DO NOT COME HERE!!!
