    "Do not send your kids here unless your views are 100 percent conservative. The amount of racism and misogyny is utterly baffling. I walk around the hall ways and here the "n word" dropped on the daily. The amount of creepy kids that will borderline harass girl is also baffling. And if you are a girl and you think about standing up for your self, there will be a long string of insults about how you look and how you need to "know your place". I'm dead serious. The teachers here are not open. They are catty and choose favorites and pick on particular kids. (especially a certain social studies teacher) I know one certain english teacher offended me greatly when I said "I am not giving a particular item that I purchased from the school", because had well bought it. The teacher then told me that I was too dumb to go anywhere else in the world besides the arts. (even though I was academically accomplished)So that's it. Do not listen to the good reviews."

    "This school gave me a lot of opportunities for success. I am thankful for all the experiences I had there. My biggest complaint would be that the administration did not have the students best interests at hand all the time."

    "The school was academically challenging while also engaging on a physical and spiritual level. On a physical level there are many sports to participate in and become a part of a team on. Spiritually the school provides mass every Wednesday and confessions every other week which helped engage me in my spiritual life. Academically each class held me to a high level of expectation as a student. At times teachers may have come across as strict but in reality they were acting in my best interest to help me be the best version of myself and strive to do my best."

    "Peninsula Catholic High School has offered a supportive, accepting environment for my son. The teachers and administrative staff go above and beyond to help students. The student body is relatively small, and feels more like a family. Excellent academics, semester based schedule offers great flexiblity and ability to spend more concentrated time on each subject. Good college preparatory curriculum. Many sports and clubs to choose from and students may always start their own. Racially diverse student body and many non-Catholics so students don't feel alienated. Can't think of any negatives."

    "I had a good few years at Peninsula Catholic thanks to the incredible teachers I was blessed with during my time there. Unfortunately, just about all of these teachers have been replaced with mediocre teachers that do not push the students to the same level that the previous teachers had. The administration is lacking greatly and has been ever since our beloved Vice Principal was taken out of her position. Another problem I have is that the college counseling service does not do nearly as good of a job as other schools, or so I have been told. I did not realize the importance of my GPA, class rank, or finding leadership positions because our college preparation did not start until it was already too late. I would not send my children to this school in its current state, and it would take a lot of convincing for me to change my mind. The only way that would happen is if new teachers and administration ran the school."
