Bishop Noll Institute Reviews

There are some amazing teachers that genuinely care about their students education. These teachers have helped push me towards success and have prepared me for college. However, there are some teachers that do not teach well or help their students. This is a an issue because it has discouraged my peers and I from taking certain classes that we would otherwise be interested in. The people in the administration are nice; however, some seem to be unresponsive to complaints given by both students and parents. Racial and ethnic diversity is great among teachers and students. Students are generally very accepting of others backgrounds. However, given that it is a Catholic private school, there is very limited diversity in religious backgrounds. Overall, I would say that it is an average school with a few excellent teachers.

There is definitely not a positive academic environment here. About 5% of the student body displays even the faintest interest in academics at all. Academic dishonesty is rampant. There are quite a few people that cheat on just about every single test or homework assignment and seemingly never get caught. Many teachers are not very well organized nor effective at actually educating. There are a few really good ones, though. The administration and leadership of the school are pretty dysfunctional. The administration is often brutally unfair when dealing with certain issues while blatantly neglecting to address much larger issues. There is definitely some misandry amongst the counselors and administrators. There's a distinct lack of professionalism in just about all areas. Closing on a positive note, the janitorial staff is top of the line.
I have seen much growth throughout my four years at Bishop Noll. The staff is friendly and, of course, extremely professional and knowledgeable in the subjects they teach. Recently, the school has added a STREAM center to ensure its students receive a more hands-on learning experience. This school is especially great for those who are very religious or for those who would like to improve upon their religious practices. I have over had a great experience at Bishop Noll Institute.
