  • Personal Narrative-Catholic High School

    leaves had disappeared beneath the snow, quite like my old self had disappeared beneath my new self. It was December and, I had always hated the winter months. That winter was supposed to bring record-breaking cold weather, and living in northern Illinois meant frostbite galore. All I did those days was sit in a box (I’ve called school) for eight hours, and get home with eight more hours of homework. At least I had homework to get my mind off of it, at least for a little while I could still be sane.

The website for this school was very basic, which I think is much better than having too many things that can overwhelm people with too much information. It is a clean look and makes it easy for parents who are looking to find out information. One thing that I really liked that I found was that the school offers what’s called plus time. Plus time is a 25 minute block of time…
