While attending Bishop Gibbons I made amazing friends and accomplished the many goals that I had set for myself while attending there. Being a student, gave me wonderful opportunities to try new things from directing a school play to being able to help decorate for the holidays at the Schenectday Historical Museum! The classes there are intellectually challenging and help prepare you for you college years in the best possible way! Not only are the students kind but so are the teachers, offering to help you in any way that can ensuring that you are able to both learn and understand the material!

My experience with Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons has helped me to grow into a very hardworking, driven and conscientious student.

I have been able to balance our rigorous college-prep curriculum with school and community activities. I have also taken part in the Concern for the Hungry food drive - in which students collect food, prepare baskets and deliver them to those less fortunate in the community.

Athletically, I have earned a varsity letter for my participation on the basketball team. Academically, I have successfully taken the New York State Regents curriculum, Accelerated courses, and College in the High School curriculum. I am also a member of the National Honor Society and have received the University at Albany Multicultural Student Award.

As a result of my High School experience, I believe that I will continue to grow at the collegiate level and continue to make a difference both academically and for the community.
The staff likes to go after the typically good students for mynute issues but look the other way when dealing with trouble students who like to disrupt anything. Some teachers do not teach but instead sit there while the students figure it out themselves or get yelled at for not knowing something when the teacher failed to teach it in the first place. Some members of the faculty seem to not want to be there or do their job. Faculty on average is mediocre and it’s no surprise that the students don’t feel motivated. Most of the students when in college said the school did not prepared them for what was to be expected. They seem to always be penny pinching in any way possible and it’s not evident on where some of that funding goes considering the facility seems to always have some problem. Best thing to say is if you found the right ones then the friends here create good personal memories
