Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School Reviews

Bishop McGuinness is great because it is small enough that you have immediate access to teachers, counselors, and opportunities to get involved. There is large diversity in student interests, and everyone ends up finding something that they enjoy. However, if I was to improve one thing about Bishop, it would most likely be trying to improve the learning experience for lower level students. Although there are definitely opportunities for everyone to succeed, I believe that more engaging teachers and classroom environments for students who struggle would be extremely beneficial to them and would help them to succeed. They should feel that they are being encouraged and challenged to do well, and I do not think that that is always done as of now.

I enjoyed the experience I had at Bishop McGuinness, but I think it would've been better if we had more opportunities for AP classes. I liked most of my teachers, but there were some that did not seem qualified to teach their subject. It can be hard to find good teachers willing to teach at private schools but overall the experience was enjoyable. It got me to the college and major I wanted!
I love the orderly conduct of teachers and students. The discipline in the school is really good. Teachers do not have to tell students to settle down, because students come to class ready to learn. Academic standards are high and the teachers are very professional. I have made very good friends at Bishop and I have liked all of my teachers. I love this school!
