Cardinal Gibbons High School Reviews

Overall, I loved my high school experience! Of course there were things that could have been better because high school is never going to be perfect, but Gibbons came pretty close. All the teachers genuinely care about you and want you to succeed. Also the athletic programs are fantastic with incredible coaches. When I went to college, I felt Gibbons really prepared me for what was to come. I was able to handle the schoolwork more efficiently and felt I understood the material better than most of my classmates. The traditions that Gibbons has are something that help make your high school experience there unique and memorable, something not everyone is able to say!

Cardinal Gibbons is a school that promotes academic excellence and provides its students with a positive, caring and nurturing environment. They hire the best faculty and it shows in the fact that they truly want their students to succeed in all areas of their high school career. From sun up to well after sundown, teachers make themselves available to their students and there is always something happening at the school. Athletic events, drama productions, chorus concerts and students playing the piano during lunch, all of these are an everyday occurrence at Gibbons and I am proud to have called this my school for the past four years!
When your son or daughter becomes as student at Cardinal Gibbons, your family joins a community of faith, service and leadership. Although outstanding academic experience is a foundation, the extras such as retreats, parent education, volunteer options and co-curricular activities are the reasons to invest in a Gibbons education. If you’d like to pry your kid from their phone and offer them opportunities to develop the soft skills needed for success in life, Gibbons is a great option.
