    I loved my experience at Blanchet! I discovered so much about myself and the aspirations I want to pursue in life because of opportunities I received at BBHS. I grew up in Catholic schools but left my freshman year of high school because I was seeking a new experience. I realized after that year that the best way I could prepare myself for college and a future job was attending Bishop Blanchet. If not for the faculty, who are so passionate about their students, and the clubs, which are so vast and well supported, I would be lost. There is a lack of diversity at BBHS, and while this is influenced by the general demographics of Seattle, it’s undeniable that the student body could be more representative. Bishop Blanchet is very much aware of this issue which is why a dedication to inclusion and knowledge about discrimination and prejudice is held paramount to the administration, faculty, and many students. As one of those students, I was always encouraged to do more for the community.

    I love how at Bishop Blanchet there is a broad diversity of students, activities, and arts. It seems like everyone can find themselves at BBHS -- it's not just for academic high achievers, jocks, etc. You can find students representing a diversity of backgrounds, cultures, genders and interest areas. The teachers and administration are really passionate about the school and the students. It is a collaborative, supportive environment. While all the kids are motivated to succeed in their own way - it's not the same sort of pressure cooker you can find in other school environments. The school also places a high priority on technology in the classrooms which is important for college and career readiness.
    I went to Bishop Blanchet for my Freshmen and Sophomore years. I would say I had an overall positive with this school. Many of my teacher were understanding and all made time after school to meet their students for extra help. I enjoyed being on Leadership of Black Student Union although sometimes only the leaders attended the meetings. The teachers were always supportive of me but, in terms of diversity, there are not many students of color.
