    "Bishop Ford is closing because lack of funds. Next year Bishop Ford will have less students so the government unanimously decide to shut Ford down. Go to the school website for more info."

    "Bishop Ford's new principal Thomas Arria had a great reputation at the previous Catholic high schools that he headed and will take Ford to the next level. The kids are well behaved and bullying is not tolerated. The sports program is great and you do not have to be a superstar to earn a spot. The school is in a great neighborhood and the tuition is better than most Catholic high schools. Parents and their children should definitely consider it. Enrollment about 600."

    "Bishop Ford is a school of enrichment. There is a wide variety of alumni, young, and senior teachers whose main goal is to serve the students and who bring their experiences to the classroom. Many of our teachers are qualified and encourage our studies by surpassing the expectations of what teachers are expected to do. Usually, I wouldn't be biased with anything in our school, but we have a very strong English Department. This is very important because many students don't enjoy reading or writing, but will come to enjoy one or both of those things due to discussing books and contemporary events from the New York Times in class discussions. We have an extension to our academics which is our selection of school activities. The dismissal bell rings at 2:32, but the day never ends at that time because many students are occupied in sports or clubs after school. Also, we were granted new leaders of the school who are driving us into a brighter future. I am proud to say that I am currently a senior at Bishop Ford and that I will be a Falcon forever (the Falcon is our mascot). I have acquired many memories and friendships while being here and will carry those things throughout my life."

    "A first glance, Bishop Ford was very similar to the high school I went to. Ford's classroom sizes were small enough for teachers to truly get to know their students and give them the individual attention they need. Brother Thomas does an exceptional job with Campus Ministry and this too reminded me of my great high school experience. As a community of faith, Brother Thomas and the students of Campus Ministry have been a blessing to us all. Bishop Ford is also the place that students can receive help from teachers, classmates and teammates in any way that is needed. The faculty and staff remain at Bishop Ford not only because many are alumni, but because we, myself included, all love and really want to see our students do well in the future. All a student needs to do is ask for help. We are available before and after school to tutor students. We are a family. The Falcon family! Both on and off of the field, courts and track we are here to support each other. This is a great place to allow your child to grow, mature and learn in an environment where it is okay to be yourself."

    "I just graduated in June 2013, and honestly I miss every second at Ford. I miss the teachers, and the students. It prepared me for the rest of my life as a student and as a person. Everyone in that school loved coming into the work everyday and teaching us, the students, even if they said they didn't. They taught you on a college level, so when you did get to college, you'd feel as if you were still in a high school classroom. Making friends in that school was easy as you're all so nervous about going into high school, you jus connect with most of the kids in your graduating class. I was always told the friends you make in high school will last a lifetime, so far that saying is coming true. If I could go back to Ford, I would do it in a heart beat!"
