Bishop John J. Snyder High School Reviews

I have enjoyed my four years at Snyder. The smaller student body makes every day feel like you are around family. The faculty and staff take the time to know you as a person...not just a number or GPA. Bishop Snyder provided a rigorous, college prep, study program in a safe, faith-based, welcoming atmosphere while allowing me to be me!

Academics: The teachers care about students. Most are happy to answer questions pertaining to college or future careers. I feel as if I have been adequately prepared content-wise for college. However, the lack of dual-enrollment and the inability to gain college credits beyond the sad selection of AP classes is calamitous. There is not even a way to take courses over the summer. I regret choosing this school when thinking of the opportunities dual-enrollment offers.
Athletics: Most teams have always struggled. The coaches are passionate, but as the ex-Lead Trainer said, "Snyder kids aren't born to play sports." That's encouraging.

Religion: if you dont agree with the Church's rules, do not go here. Every year we are taught about the sancitity of marriage (a vicious attack towards gay rights), told that sex before marriage is spiritual death (instead of actual sex-ed), and religion weaved into science lessons. Love being stuck in the Dark Ages? Then you'll love Snyder.
Classroom sizes vary depending on the classes. Most of the time, classes have 15-21 students. Students and faculty are all friendly and make you feel like family. Teachers understand the struggles of high school and they try their best to guide and prepare you for the future up ahead. It is a college preparatory private school, and after attending here for 4 years, I really do feel ready for college life.
