Bishop Thomas K. Gorman Catholic School Reviews

Gorman is a great school, very diverse in students, and ever since we got a new principal, things have been going great. He’s made a lot of changes for the school, and made it enjoyable for students. Even though we are a smaller school, we are closer as a family, and teachers definitely have more control over students. Fitting in is very easy, everyone is very welcoming, you’ll make friends very fast. Security is not an issue, all hallways have cameras, doors are always locked. If you want to enter the school, you need to get your license scanned for a background check. My only concerns are for the clubs and sports.
I feel like the school would be better if we had more clubs, if more students were up to recruiting people who would be willing to participate. Sports are great, but maybe if we worked harder, or had more experienced coaches, we would do a lot better.

Transferring from a public school to private Catholic school was a big change. It went from a large 400+ student population to a small community of 60 students. With a smaller classroom, the teachers are able to focus on individual students and have good hours to help accommodate student needs.
There are quality teachers if you choose to take higher level classes. The science department has very good teachers; the science classrooms are nice and well equipped. The English Department has quality teachers, preparing students for the AP exam. The Theology Department is arguably "average". In a student's point of view, the information feels redundant and the homework feels tedious, but from a parent's point of view, the classes teach and instill Catholic values.
The school is slowly improving the technology by providing Chromebooks to classrooms and libraries.
In the sense of college readiness, Bishop Gorman prepares students with the amount of workload beginning during freshman year.
Every single day at Gorman was a beginning to something new, from meeting someone who could help us later on in our career( guest speakers) to a friend and guidance of the lord by our side. There’s not one thing I would like to change other than to go back and be able to relive the momements I know cherish.!
