I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Saint Bonaventure High School! The faculty is very friendly and is willing to help students with any school-related complications they may face. The environment here is excellent also, as the sense of community is very strong at this school. It has always made me feel like I am at home.

As the parent of a junior attending St. Bonaventure, I consider it to be an outstanding educational experience. The student:teacher ratio is low, they have a phenomenal core curriculum of classes, parental involvement is both strong and encouraged, and the Honors/AP teachers are absolutely outstanding.

If you're looking for a rigorous academic environment where you'll be challenged, learn, and be prepared for college, a school where ethics, pragmatism, compassion and personal responsibility are practiced on a daily basis, and an atmosphere where Seraph pride = family pride in each other for life, you need to check out St. Bonaventure. You will *not* be disappointed. Oh, yeah, and the sports are pretty awesome too. Go Seraphs! :)
Having been home schooled most of my life, attending Saint Bonaventure High School was a breath of fresh air. I had grown up in programs at Our Lady of the Assumption Church and therefore had many friends that were already attending SBHS. A small school with intimate and smaller sized classes, allowing for opportunities that many public school students don't get. If you have the ability to afford Saint Bonaventure, I 100% recommend it.
