Bishop McDevitt is an intimate, Catholic based, community where young women and men can learn and grow as individuals. The student to teacher ratio allows for each student to be a name not a number. This creates a welcoming cultural that accepts all families and students. Each student receives the education to go on to the next educational step of college, all while gaining Catholic morals, and ethics. Bishop McDevitt allows every student to succeed, and become intellectually mature. This is a true hidden gem when it comes to High Schools.

Leadership of school committed to success in all areas. Family-like environment. Small student -teacher ratios
One of the worst schools I have attended. Some of the people you meet is probably the best part of the school. Most of the teachers, administrators, etc are just not good. They recently changed so much things in the school. For the future, I think that they should change just about everything to how the students want it.
