    "Really NOT worth the money! My son had a teacher who spent all her time on her phone! It's over-crowded and they really need to take the Catholic off the door becasue they are the least Catholic people I have ever met."

    "As a student transferring from a co-ed school I was not very impressed. I had heard about "how great of a school it is". I did get involved in sports and clubs when i got there, but still the kids weren't very accepting. It was more of a "why did you even transfer" attitude. There is no "school spirit" feeling. It feels like all work and no play. My high school i transferred from had fun events going on(field trips, dress down days, talent show, spirit night, etc..). Roman didn't do anything fun like that. Teachers were OK. Nothing spectacular. Save your money. It's not really worth it."

    "Absolutely fantastic. Roman provides a supportive environment for growth while challenging students with advanced curriculum. I daresay, based the previous reviews, that the Roman experience is not for all young men, but personally I would not have been happy anywhere else. Excellent staff, challenging and innovative courses. My only personal complaint was about the size; the administration wants to enlarge the student body, but the building is the same size! The addition of the annex building has helped, but a little more elbow room would have been fantastic. Otherwise, nearly flawless. And "fowl" language? Come on; its an ALL BOYS school, what would you expect?!"

    "I have never been so disappointed in anything in my entire life. Athletics are really strong, and was really the only saving grace. They really do rally the boys together, and the camaraderie amoung them is a beautiful thing. Academically, however, it's another story. If your son is a VERY good student, I'm sure he'll be fine.... but a good solid "B" student will find he will not be prepared for college. Teachers: a few REALLY great ones, but most (MOST) of the teachers our son has had have been WAY below expectations. Most of the teachers use fowl language with the boys (in a casual manner)..I'm no prude, but school is not the place for this! Shop around. Save up for private school..you'll be better off!"

    "When I began research on high schools in the seventh grade, I had convinced myself that a private, prep school would be the best choice. Roman is just as good and, dare I say it, or better than every other school. The academics are superb, the athletics excellent, the faculty and staff are second to none in their respective fields. Before attending Catholic High, I was quite shy; now, I am able to speak and perform in front of people. It gave me so many opportunities. I love it; it's my second home."
