    "Amazing academics and so many unique course opportunities. The teachers and advisors mostly care about helping YOU get better grades, every once in a while you get a teacher who plays favorites or simply is not helpful, but other teachers of that course are often willing to help. Also, if you play sports you will rarely and hardly be punished."

    "It is a very good school that puts a focus on being Christ Centered Leaders for Life. The teachers are usually very good and you can tell that they love teaching and want to be at Dowling."

    "We have had to sacrifice financially to send all our children to Dowling. In the past two years there has been an attempt to balance the attention to sports and the Fine Arts Department. Some of the teachers are extremely young. The Math and Science Department seems to have the most difficulty retaining teachers who can connect with teen students of all maturity levels. Overall, once our kids attended college, the impact Dowling had in preparing students with good study habits and time management skills was hard to ignore. All of our children were years ahead of kids who attended public schools where average was applauded as exceptional. If you don't like strong academic competition or lots of homework, Dowling is not the place for you. To make the experience better, staff and students make a true effort to care for everyone and provide selfless service to each other and the community."
