The environment within Bishop Connolly High School was something that I never experienced, and truly believe that not individuals ever experience. The students, faculty and staff are always lending each other help and assistance. The background of the school's Catholic faith is represented through every individual that walks through the halls, whether that be through the students or staff. The school is top tier within Fall River MA, in terms of their academics, school spirit, safety, and resources for each individual.
I feel home here. The staff is absolutely incredible and kind. They do whatever they can to make sure they are housing a good community with good kids and academic excellence while providing a safe, happy, and great environment filled with independence. This school offers a program for 8th graders to skip 8th grade and tale freshmen classes (LEAP program), which Ii am in and very happy I am. Bishop Connolly is the best school I have ever attended.
Overall a good high school experience. Teachers are able to help students one on one. The campus is full of pep and spirit.
Bishop Connolly has a lot of exceptional qualities. It does an excellent job of preparing its students for college and the college workload while also having a caring staff more than willing to help their students achieve success. The guidance counseling department of the school could be improved especially in terms of assisting students in applying for college, but the school is a overall great institution.
Bishop Connolly is a very inviting school. Students are encouraged to participate in the many activities that are offered, including sports, clubs, and theater. Academics are also an important part of the Connolly community. Almost all teachers care a lot about giving the best possible education. Students will leave feeling well prepared for college life.
Being a smaller school, Bishop Connolly High School offers a great sense of a family and community. Most Teachers and staff truely care and are willing to go above and beyond to help and support the student's needs. Extra help is always available when requested. Teachers are encouraging and supportive. One thing that I would suggest needing improvement, would be the guidance department or lack there of. Students would benefit from having additional support in areas provided by the guidance department. Where in this case, it falls on the teachers. In my case, overall, it has been a great experience filled with challanges and successes.
Bchs has given me a place to grow and find myself. All the teachers and staff are amazing and really care about you.
Personal attention is there if you ask for it. Teachers are attentive to the students that want to learn and do well. Well organized administration and college application process. School is very into athletic team sports. The new weight room and instructor is awesome.
There’s staff in the school that like being difficult teachers/graders which isn’t that appealing going in as a first year student. Teaches are usually nice and supportive. Diversity really lacks here unfortunately but expected since it’s a catholic school. Some people are definitely favored over others and receive less punishment for misbehavior rather than others. Almost always packed a lunch. But during my recent year some staff have been really understanding and supportive. School really lacks funding for a lot of things unfortunately. But it is a very small community which is nice. Respond well to threats to school and safety of school. You are expected to be very independent your last two years so you have to get used to that. Some classes really affect your gpa more than usual classes at other schools. Overall not the worst school ever to spend your four years.
Connolly is a wonderful place but it has to work on its leap program. I like the smallness of the school, you get to know everybody and they have retreats to become friends with everyone in your class!
My experience at Bishop Connolly was amazing. It had prepared me for the my future studies, in which I am studying a Curry College. I admired the involvement not only from the faculty, but also from the community alone. If there could be one thing to add on to Bishop Connolly High School that’s would be to advertise it in a better way. The scho is great, now it just needs more students to enjoy it.
Bchs gave me a place to grow. I was definitely an introvert but through theater, debate team and strong support from my teachers, I gained confudence. They helped me to accept myself, be myself and grow as a person and in my faith. I ended up with leads in the plays, soloing at mass, 4thin my class and senior class president. I couldn't have done any of that without the support of others there. It was always open door, warm greeting and welcome. I look back on it and miss the closeness of the community. I owe them so much!
When i began my high school decision process, i always had one high school in mind, Bishop Connolly. Coming from a small elementary school, Bishop Connolly felt like the perfect fit. The school is large enough to have such a diverse group of kids, but still small enough where you can really get that individual time and relationship with teachers. Bishop Connolly to me is like a second home. The teachers really get to know you and who you are as a person, and truly care about if you succeed. The only thing i could wish that would change about Bishop Connolly is that if it could be made more available to other students. Coming here was an investment on my parents, but they knew i would thrive here, and i can honestly say Bishop Connolly has truly prepared me for college, and i wish everyone could have access to a school like this.
The teachers are doing a wonderful job preparing me for college and I feel as if I am truly learning the material in class rather than just memorizing it. I have made great friends, not only in class, but in sports as well.
Bishop Connolly has taught me everything I needed to know in order to prepare me for life ahead. Along with academics, their sports are the best thing to be a part of. What makes bishop Connolly so great is the people that work there are students. They are so easy to talk to and you can make friends easily.
Bishop Connolly's academics are very good and allow students to excel greatly in the future. However, the school is a little outdated and is in need of new equipment to make learning even better here.
Everything is amazing, teaches you a lot and gives you many oppurtunities. Only thing I would want more is a queer-straight alliance. Although no bullying occurs for members of non-heterosexual orientation.
