Bishop Thomas K. Gorman Catholic School Reviews

This is our first year at Bishop Gorman Catholic School and our daughter is loving her new school!

In speaking with other parents at this school, I have found that all of the teachers here seem to share the same goal: to challenge the students to their fullest potential while guiding them on the road to becoming better citizens.

This is a Catholic School, but you do not have to be Catholic to come to this school. It is a Christ-Centered community and everyone is welcome. There is a weekly school Mass and the students get to wear a Mass uniform. Parents are welcome to attend the school Mass with the students. I have been taking time out on Wednesdays to attend the school Mass and have come to love this special time of peaceful reflection in the middle of my busy week.

Overall, we are extremely pleased with this great little school.

My children have attended many different schools in Tyler over the years and while there are great things about each of those schools, Bishop Gorman is the only school in town that fits all 3 of my very different children's needs. I have an A student overachiever who needs to be challenged, and two dyslexic students who require skilled, qualified teachers willing and knowledgeable to learn how to best help them reach their potential. The culture of the school is like none I’ve ever seen before. The administration, teachers, coaches, support staff and parents have become like family to us. We are unified in the desire to build up students and families spiritually, academically, emotionally, and physically. While it is not a perfect institution, the pros definitely outweigh the cons, and it is worth every sacrifice to have this kind of support in rearing my children.
Why my wife and I chose Bishop Gorman Highschool for,our son.
In reality, his school isn’t much different than that of a public school. His peers come from all walks of life. But the one thing that makes my school stand out – God. Bishop Gorman’s mission statement says,”Our mission-to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, prepare students for higher education and create a community where service is valued and celebrated-has imparted to our youth and community a treasured educational and spiritual foundation that is timeless.” We love the tight-night community of teachers, students, parents, and administrators. One might say the reason we have such a community is because we are bound together by faith. I think it is because we have a group of loving families that want to raise our children to be good people. The administration and Clergy all get to know each child on an individual level, and cheer them on by name. This is why we love this school.
