Bishop Hartley High School Reviews

I loved being a Bishop Hartley hawk! The community is very strong and tightly knit. You can tell that the students care about one another and want to build each other up. The teachers and faculty are approachable and make time to talk to you about anything -- whether it's to further your academics, life advice, or just to get to know you better. Bishop Hartley prepared me well for college life and helped me grow as an individual by providing me opportunities to serve the community and be involved in many extracurricular activities.

This is my third year at Bishop Hartley, and I have loved it all. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly, and all the teachers genuinely care about your learning and well-being. Hartley offers countless opportunities to get involved (clubs, sports, service, through the House System, etc.) - there is something for every single person. Students are provided with so many various resources: technologically (each student receives a personal device), educationally (SEEK, tutoring, Notre Dame program to help those who learn differently), mentally and preparedness (guidance counselors, psychologists), and spiritually (deacon, teachers, class retreats).
Bishop Hartley's academic reputation has slipped ever since they implemented the house system which attempts to create a sense of community between students and faculty. New AP classes and academic programs are rarely created, and the administration prefers to support its house system and unnecessary improvements to the school's sports facilities. My advice to the administration: take the expensive tuition money you are charging your students to improve academics so that your graduates excel in college. At this point, nearby public high schools are offering more competitive college preparatory programs.
