    "Both of my children were educated at Cathedral. I have only good things to say about the school. Not only were the teachers great, but they were also caring of the students. The friends my children made were amazing, well behaved, and had parents that kept track of them and their behavior both in and out of school. One of my children is in college and the other is in medical school. I believe that Cathedral gave them a great start on their adult lives."

    "As an alum and current parent, there are good and bad that I can say about Cathedral. There is ample opportunity for motivated students, numerous good and challenging teachers, and some great honors courses. Learning is the priority and all students seem to acknowledge and support that philosophy. We've been told that a big transformation is coming with an application for the International Baccalaureate format to begin in 2012-2013. In order for that to happen, two major changes must be made. There are long-time teachers who are, plainly put, awful and are recognized by guidance and administrators as such. Some recent hires seem to be only because of their connections within the Catholic community, rather than solid skills. The guidance dept is deplorable, so don't count on them to guide your children toward their future. Culturally, there isn't enough diversity, which is problematic. The school is working to eliminate old ideas and stereotypes. The tornado destroyed the old school, so they are in a temporary location that is not ideal. With any luck, a new and better facility will be built by 2013-2014... and the school can begin again, new and improved."

    "This school is head-and-shoulders over practically all public options at an affordable price. Academic rigor in an involved community is the standard with teachers, administrations and parents all invited and involved."

    "Cathedral High School is no doubt one of the best, if not the best, educational insitution in the Springfield area. While the school may complain about the dwinling number of students in recent years (less students means less money which also means higher tuitions), the classes are small and in certain classes, you feel like you are actually in the room. However, after attending private schools all of my life (all, except Cathedral, are not Catholic), I find myself struggling with the religion and the approach adminstrators take in the school. I often have to deal with ever-changing rules and teachers who too often are graduates of the school, not 'outsiders' which can provide valuable teaching experiences for the school. All in all, Cathedral is not the best school that I've been, but unfortunately, it's the better school in Springfield."

    "Cathedral High school is one of the premiere educational institutions in MA. As a former student and current law student, I can attest to the quality education that the school provides. I am proud to be a Cathedral graduate and formed lasting bonds in my four years on Surrey Road that will not soon be forgotten. I recommend Cathedral High School to any student that searches for a quality education in an environment that promotes Christian values... there is truly no better place in Western, MA to get a college preparatory education."
