All my teachers are really nice this year and class is always a calm and chill environment. The food here has always been great, and now they always have something special for lunch on Fridays like smoothies. Outside of school activities whether it’s clubs, theatre or sports have always been the highlight of my day and everyone is always kind and accepting. I’m very excited to be a senior next year and can’t wait to try out even more new things! :)

Bishop Ireton High School is a small Catholic high school in Alexandria, Virginia. The high school has great academics and many different types of extra curricular activities. The school greatly prepares students for college starting from freshman year all the way to senior year. Bishop Ireton is improving every year and plans to make some big renovations soon!
Bishop Ireton is an average at best school. The only reason I would consider sending my child here is if the public school they are zoned for is below average. The school itself is not diverse. The teachers, with the exception of 3 or 4, are average. If your son or daughter plans on going to a state school, save your money and go to a public high school. In fact, just save your money and just don't attend a Catholic high school, especially if you live in the Fairfax County area. Bishop Ireton is certainly not worth its price tag and actually has less to offer (in terms of AP courses) than many public schools in Fairfax County.
