Cardinal Gibbons has been an excellent school for our kids! Both have very different learning styles, but have consistently been challenged by curriculum and supported by teachers. We love the school's focus on community service and the wonderful retreats the kids can have at the school's own retreat center.
Engagement is a key value - student engagement with each other, with teachers and with activities; and the same for parents as well. The Gibbons family is very welcoming and inclusive of all. They take care of their own and stand behind students who are struggling.

This is truly a fantastic place to learn and grow. Most teachers are excellent and genuinely care about their students. The clubs and after school activities are engaging with lots of leadership opportunities. There is no shortage of school spirit! My only criticism: if you're unlucky enough to get the "bad" teacher in any one subject or year, you could be set up for failure. I think all teachers should be equal in quality so no student misses an opportunity.
Cardinal Gibbons is an astounding school. For fun, we race scooters, have trivia, or watch movies during lunch and can take yoga classes in the morning. At Gibbons, we are taught the strategies of how to succeed and how to be a leader. The classes are around 25 people and every one is usually engaged. The only thing I would change about this High School is the parking lot! It's tiny and it makes people stressed and late for school when there are no spaces left to park in.
