    "Going to St. Patrick's was super fun. If you enjoy a school where if you have half a brain you can study for a test in two minutes it's the place to be. It's also enjoyable if you don't believe in the power of logical communication between student body and administration. A child plugging their ears and screaming is the equivalent of how St. Patrick's handles student issues. There was recently a change in authority so hopefully some progress will be made. In terms of religion, there was no room for diversity. In one classroom I was in a religion teacher found out a student was atheist and made a scene of praying for all those who haven't come to god yet while staring down that student in class every day. One of the better teachers was also fired because the school is basically run by the wealthier parents. The two most recent principals that have been let go either lacked complete common sense and ability to logic or simply acted like a petulant frat star. Applying to colleges was also a nightmare. Things were frequently not turned in on time because of the guidance counselor and scholarships were lost because of this. This woman picks two students each year to work minimal effort for and the rest of her effort is spent trying to spell the word application. The front desk women are actually very competent and wonderful at their jobs though. There's only one AP test anyone stands a chance at passing and thank god for that teacher. The school should honestly just get rid of the other AP classes because the amount of 1's scored by extremely intelligent students is a disgrace. So thank you to this school for allowing me to be easily the least prepared student in every college classroom I've ever been in considering I went to a top 40 university. This wouldn't bother me so much if the administration was reasonable and actually tried hard to do something about any of this. Go Irish"

    "There are one or two teachers at this school that work hard and teach well. The knowledge I gained from their classrooms got me far in college. In every other class I could have gotten up and taught everyone with better passion and accuracy. The phrase "those who can't, teach" definitely applies at St. Patrick."

    "most of the teachers in my school have their masters degree but a few have their bachelors degrees. The quality of teachers is very good."

    "I have had teachers give up on me, leave me to fail. I have been threatened by the administration. I have seen teachers quit because they hate the school. I have seen everyones favorite teacher get fired because one set of parents twin daughters didn't like him and that he told them to "shut the hell up" when they were talking in class. I have seen a teacher get fired, and escorted out of the school by the FBI because he is a child molester and has molested students. I have seen drugs in the school. I have seen drinking in the school. I have seen the Principal come to school hungover, and looking unprofessional. If the teachers can tell us we have to stay in our Professional Shirt, Blazer, and tie attire, I expect them to do the same and do not come to work in a t-shirt. If we have to be clean shaven, I expect them to do the same. If we have to come to school every 5 days of the week, I expect them to do the same! there were a few good teachers and administration and I applaud them, but for the rest of the school diocese, administration, and even to the Catholic figures who oversee the school, I have to say that I am disappointed in them. They are not very Christian. I would never allow my kids to go here. I plan on leaving the area and not living here. This school has basically ruined the religion to me, which is why I won't send my kids to a catholic school. Also, students don't have a say in anything. We don't get to have our voice heard. When we disagree with any part of the religion, we get sent to the disciplinarian for detention. It has happened to me. My religion teacher told me that animals have an animated soul and that they do not love us like we do. When I disagreed and said how I know my dog loves me, the teacher argued back and said its not possible. I debated back asking them how they know that. I argued, because my dog has been dying, and the way he looked out for me, acted toward me, protected me, and cared for me even when I was sad."
