    Very happy with this school- my son is a senior and has been in Catholic school since pre-k. This was by far the best Catholic school experience for my family. The teachers go out of their way to help the kids in any way they can. Mnsgr Whalen has made this school the perfect place for boys to prepare for college! Best decision my son & I ever made!

    You cant give a school 1 star because of 1 teacher you did not like...thats not fair. Some teachers are amazing...some not so much....but its a great school nonetheless

    My son went here years ago and most of the school admn is fine but the band music teacher Mr. Christensen is a obnoxious lowdown uneducated person and suprising he is a teacher. This man used to ridicule and mock brooklyn students that would come here sterotyping them and used to play music records for the students telling them that if you play them backwards you can find satanic messages in the music. This guy needs some mental help. Dont belive me ask some other graduates they will say the same. This guy is a jackofff

    I am a student of Farrell. Im a Senior and this is my second year in the school. I could not be happier that I transfered to Farrell. It is the greatest school ever and moreso the greatest experience ever. Everything from teachers to coaches from the curriculum to the lunch. Everything is perfect. i could not reccomend this school enough.

    The school is an awesome school. There is something for every student to do. The principle is strict but fair. My son is having an awesome time there. There is a deep sense of brotherhood.
