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 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

    One thing I love about The Bishop's School is the relationship between teachers and students. Teachers are seemingly always available to help out. Between the students there is also a healthy competition that drives us to make ourselves and each other better. One thing that I would change about Bishop's is the school spirit, we always seem to have a mediocre turnout to things like basketball and football games. Other than that I love attending The Bishop's School.

    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.
    I’m currently a senior at Bishop’s, and I wouldn’t trade my experience for the world. At other high schools the kids can we exclusive and petty, not here. Everyone can find a place at Bishop’s and all the students push each other to be there best selves. Not only did I play two varsity sports and participate and start clubs, but I was also able to thrive in school. There is no shortage of work here. My years at Bishop’s have been the best of my life, but also some of the hardest. In hindsight, the difficulty really allowed me to grow as a person. I feel very sad to leave this place and these people.
