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 intentionally pluralistic and inclusive community where students come from more than 70 schools representing diverse religious, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Forty-eight 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.

The Bishop's School Reviews
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.
