    Our experience at St. Benedict High School has been mixed. On the positive side there are several excellent teachers and (some) classes with innovative course materials. However we are finding that these important elements are anomalies rather than the norm. On the negative side the administration is generally a mess - disorganized sloppy incompetent - and there is only one college counselor for 200 high school students. Communication with parents is poor. In general families are paying a high tuition for an education that could be acquired in some of the local public schools.

    St. Benedict is a great environment and community for students and parents. It truly is one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the city and the students are not only very tolerant of each other but go above and beyond to look out for one another. I am so impressed by the character of the student body and by the dedication of the faculty and administration. The small class sizes cater to each and every student. The administration has made a commitment to offering AP courses and is continually looking to expand the program. Students are very involved at the school and often times are there from 7am-8pm.

    this high school is simply terrible. I am a current student who attends st.benedict. The quality of faculty is horrible. They do not know how to teach. School rules are the strictest and the most ridiculous.(i.e. students are not permitted to carry a waterbottle in the building 'studyhall' does not exist students cannot remain in the building after school hour students cannot use cellphones even after school/ lunch time and so on) and most students are disabled or weird. It's really not worth going to this school. Trust my experience. they call themselves catholic but they have no true faith in anything.

    As parents (one a middle-school educator and one professional) of a recently graduated 4-year alumni of St. Ben we can say unequivocally that St. Ben's was an extraordinary educational opportunity for our son. Both the professional staff and administration were consistently dedicated to the highest level of academic achievement. We wholeheartedly recommend the school as a wonderful part of your child's education.

    I've seen a lot of great young people benefit from the environment and education provided by St. Benedict H.S.

    I graduated from this school in 2008 and my high school experience was unbelievable. Despite St. Ben's being a small private school which meant we lacked in athletics the hands on and teacher to student relationship was outstanding. I graduated at the top of my class and went on to get accepted into very academically challenging schools such as Claremont-McKenna Pomona USC USD and Knox College where I currently attend college. St. Ben's definitely helped mold me into a leader and more importantly an individual.

    This school is the best. When another local high school did not accept my son after an intense interview they welcomed him with open arms. They also provide a nuturing yet accountable environment for the kids. Ms. Lynch has always been there for both my son and I. I would recommend anyone to send their child to this school.
