I fully credit my son's experience at Damien High School with providing him with the discipline, confidence, and determination it takes to succeed at New York University (NYU) today. The mentorship and support he received during his high school years set him up for success and the small, connected, and caring community is what every parent hopes for in a high school environment.

Damien High School has been outstanding with our oldest son who is now in 10th grade. He enjoys going to school and participating in the Debate team. Our Youngest will be soon attending Damien as well and he is looking forward towards the challenge.
