    "Our overall experience at Roncalli was disappointing. Although two of my children graduated from Roncalli and were adequately prepared for rigorous college courses, our family is from one of the smaller parishes and there was always a sense of not quite belonging to the "Roncalli Family." Our own parish priest highly recommended that we choose another school, as he was aware of the disconnect some families felt and lack of cohesiveness the administration provided to outsiders. Our third child struggles with ADD and is not strong in sports and is an average student with respect to his academics. What we found is that if you are not a student that will make Roncalli look good, then you will not find strong support from the administration. Based on our experience, we not only feel like outsiders, but we also feel that they failed to provide any type of support to our child who could have really benefited from mentorship and a support system. The most disappointing aspect of Roncalli, and why I am giving them such a low rating, is that they care more about their image than they do their students."

    "I graduated from Roncalli a few years ago. I came from the public school system and was not catholic. These are both reasons that people want to make you believe that, "if you fit in one of these two categories, you might not be welcomed." This statement could not be further from the truth. If you don't "fit in" at Roncalli then you are not trying. There is something for everyone to be involved in and they will help you find "it" is. There are more resources here for students than I have ever had before. The staff here, as a whole, could not be any better. Sure, not every school is perfect and not every teacher there is the best in the state, but Roncalli could not put more effort and care into seeing their students succeed. I don't know a teacher there that wont stay after to help you with questions, or an administrator that doesn't know the names of the kids and says hello in the hallways. Once I arrived at Roncalli, sure, it was an academic shock and sure, it was a financial strain on my parents but every penny was worth it. I study engineering at Purdue now and Roncalli has prepared me more for life than all of the intelligent students around me."

    "It would be hard to find a school that is more dedicated to providing the education that a student needs to compete in the highly competitive college and career world. Not only do they concentrate on the academics, but they also instill in the students a strong moral code and a sense of service to their fellow man."

    "My son transferred out of Roncalli to the public school at the beginning of 2014, because he has a breakdown when we tried to discuss with him what courses he wanted to take for the next academic year. It turns out that there was a kid that he had in two of his classes that was bullying him, as in saying things to him, making fun of how he talked, and throwing things at him, like pencils and spitballs. The vice principal in charge of student activities told us that "Roncalli isn't a good fit for all students". The dean was going to talk to the student involved, but, I believe he dropped the ball, because our son left the school. Bullying is the elephant in the room at Roncalli; I know of other kids who have been bullied. During freshman year, we had to attend a series of parent meetings, and during one, the same dean emphasized that there would be zero tolerance for bullying. I guess so, if all the bullied students leave."
