Bishop Garcia Diego High School Reviews

If your child is already a well rounded student who is a good student, then DO NOT send your them to Bishop, for the public schools in Santa Barbara are a lot better in terms of classes offered and overall facilities. However, if your kid isn't the best student, but is still smart, and just needs a little push academically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally then Bishop is your school. In essence, you're paying a school to parent your kid and prepare them for the real world as well as for college. They have a desire to learn, but speaking from experience, this desire is often limited due to Bishop's small community and offered classes. For instance, some advanced courses might have only three to six students, while some college prep course can range from 15 to 30 students. This leads to the fact that Bishop's student to faculty ratio versus what a student actually experiences in class are two extremely different things.

Bishop is a safe and comfortable environment for students to be challenged. There is a lot of school spirit and this school has strong sports programs for both genders. Scheduling opportunities for AP classes are quite limited but rigorous instruction is provided, especially in math, language arts and science. Bishop has an excellent media facility and tech related courses. We believe under current leadership that the school is on a great trajectory.
Our son loves Bishop & has really found his home. Teachers & staff care so much & work to personalize each student's experience. Even teachers who do not have my son know him by name & offer help when needed. Teacher office hours help so much & remind me of college. For a small school, the many Advanced Placement/Honors classes as well as clubs and sports is really a luxury. In addition, the television & sound studios offer a higher level experience that cannot be found anywhere around Santa Barbara. With all that is going on in our public schools & the watering down of academia w/ common core, we are thrilled that such an experience is available for our son. Small school w/ a global focus. The kids feel safe so they can do what's important: learn without distraction - & we believe the investment is very much worth it.
