Delone Catholic High School is a very well-organized school, that provides lots of opportunities for all kinds of students. It gives a numerous amount of activities for students like me to participate in outside of school hours. These include sports, dances, musicals/plays, and many more. My personal favorite is the sports because they are fun to watch as well as play in them! The student body is extremely positive and supportive. There is no need to feel left out in this school because there is a place for everyone. Overall, Delone Catholic is a great school that challenges students' academic abilities, preparing them for college as well as the real world.
