Bishop Grimes Junior/Senior High School Reviews

35 reviews
All Categories
Bishop Grimes is in the process of becoming fully accredited as an International Baccalaureate World School, which will establish our academic program as the most rigorous and research-backed college preparatory program in CNY. Bishop Grimes is small enough to provide individualized attention to each student, focusing upon their holistic wellness, while still offering 43 outstanding sports programs, instrumental, vocal, performing, and fine arts, (2/3 of students participate in instrumental, vocal, and/or performing arts), and various other extracurricular activities. Bishop Grimes is a Diocesan school, and students receive an education rooted in the Gospel and the Catholic Church that supports the spiritual, physical, emotional, and academic achievement of our diverse student population.

As a parent of a student at Bishop Grimes, I am very pleased with the education that my child is receiving. My child is challenged in most of her classes, and she has some of the kindest and most caring teachers I have ever met. My family chose Bishop Grimes because of the family atmosphere that we felt when we visited, and we have not been disappointed in our choice. Sending our child to Bishop Grimes is a true investment in our child's future.
Bishop Grimes is on a more secure footing now that they are becoming an independent Catholic school. They are rapidly improving facilities, athletic fields, and course offerings, particularly in art and music.

They are integrating technology into the classroom in a more meaningful way and have recently hired some more rigorous teachers in the sciences.

The school does not tolerate bullying and discipline is strict, so students feel very safe.

Community service is a big part of the school, so Catholic teachings are encouraged in very positive ways.

They have a great liaison with Lemoyne College (nearby Jesuit college of excellent quality), so outstanding students can take classes there at a steep discount.

On the negative side, it would be even better if they had more choices for elective courses; and the Catholic thing must be oppressive for those who aren't Catholic, as it seems overwhelming even for some of us who are Catholic!
