From The Bishop's School

From the border to Oceanside, The Bishop’s School is a thriving student and faculty population on an 11-acre campus in La Jolla. San Diego’s only independent middle and high school affiliated with the Episcopal Church, Bishop’s is an inclusive community where students come from more than 70 schools representing diverse religious, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. 48 percent of students self-identify as people of color; 20 percent receive more than $3 million in financial aid. We have 72 sports teams, 40 performing arts shows in dance, theater, choral and instrumental music and visual arts options from photography to animation and more. Classrooms are designed for interaction and conversation rather than lecture. The aim of a Bishop’s education: develop students who are kind, independent thinkers, of healthy mind and body; who are globally aware citizens, problem-solvers, and risk takers. Come see how we learn. Come see how we live. 2018 Open House Sat., Nov. 3, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

    I loved my time at Bishop's. Both students and teachers are amazing, supportive, and push you to challenge yourself. To represent how close your bonds are from Bishop’s, many college freshmen visit campus when they come home for Christmas to see teachers, visit with underclassmen friends, and reconnect with their classmates.
    Bishop's is not for the non-academically minded student: courses are overwhelming if students do not work together, reach out for teacher aid, and stay on top of their work. However, even when studying for my toughest exams, I never regretted going to Bishop's. Bishop's is built for the student who wants to excel in school while also playing a sport, writing for the school magazine, and being a member of multiple other clubs.
    As I end my freshman year of college, I am so appreciative of my Bishop's education: because of Bishop's, I feel confident in my ability to study and succeed.

    Although the environment is very competitive and I cannot confidently say that I got a great deal of sleep over the last four years, there is very little that I would change about my experience at Bishop's. I have formed close relationships with my teachers and become very involved in a variety of extracurricular activities, such as Mock Trial and Speech and Debate. There are clubs for everyone, and, if a particular one does not already exist, it is easy to form one. Teachers are always willing to help out with classroom performance, etc. The workload depends greatly upon which classes you decide to take; Bishop's can essentially be as difficult as you make it. Taking advantage of as many opportunities as I could led me to receive a great education from this school, and I feel well prepared for college.
    I feel that Bishop’s is a great place to discover who you are and further learn more than you’ll ever know. I have to say though that this school is for a particular type of student, someone who can take stress easily and someone who can stay focused on their genuine passion for learning. Sometimes students don’t seem to genuinely engaged in learning new things. Diversity is somewhat an issue because 95% of the people are Caucasian but this place gives you the opportunity to learn and discover so that when you go out into the world, distractions won’t really be a problem becomes you will be focused on your end goal. The school helps you and trains you to become a better, smarter, and more capable person.
