From Bishop Blanchet High School

As a Catholic college prep school with over 25 honors and Advanced Placement courses, BBHS offers advanced-level work before ever setting foot on a university campus. Our students get into (and thrive at) some of the country's best schools. And our small class sizes, low student-to-teacher ratio, and integrated technology mean that the learning experience is dynamic and engaging.

You will also find an unmatched array of electives, a professional-quality theater program, competitive and no-cut sports, and a campus ministry program focused on the formation of the whole student.

Bishop Blanchet is a great private Catholic high school. The teaching staff are excellent, most have at least a masters degree and almost all have previous teaching experience at their respective grade levels. A lot of them have also taught in other countries and bring a unique and varied perspective. This works well with the diverse cultural backgrounds among the students. The school has a zero tolerance on bullying and drug and alcohol use. The school fosters an attitude of acceptance and has a very welcoming positive atmosphere.
Review Bishop Blanchet High School
Looking back, I can say that Bishop Blanchet did a very good job at preparing me for the challenges of college life. There are many dedicated and passionate teachers here that do their very best to help their students succeed both in and beyond the classroom (many of them also help out in extracurricular activities and school sports). The facilities are dated, but are very well-maintained, and the campus is always kept beautiful. Unfortunately, I graduated before the field lights were installed, so I cannot speak to those. The food is average, but the lunch staff is nice and always friendly. Finally, although the academics are challenging, there are many resources available to help students succeed.
I love BBHS a lot! Every year I get more involved and learn to love this school even more. The community is great! We have such a welcoming spirit and are positively supportive of everyone. All the teachers want you to succeed and are willing to work with you for extra help. They're also easy to talk to and become friends with. It's worth the traffic I have to go through everyday from West Seattle. We have a ton of opportunities for students to get involved. From drama to sports, and going on retreats and volunteering to make sandwiches for the homeless, BBHS offers so much! Anyone and everyone can fit in and succeed at Bishop Blanchet!
