    "Teachers cared a lot. They went above and beyond in helping me succeed. I didn't like the favoritism towards the athletic students."

    "I like that this school is a very friendly environment. At this Catholic School it seems like religion classes are not taken seriously (for the 7000$ that it costs to go here.) The student body isn t very good either; this seems like a public school but just a religion class that no one pays attention. For the money, I wish my child could have gone to a public school. The student body isn t very good either. There are people with drugs, alcohol, low standards, racist slurs and there are a lot of people who are egotistical. I mean for a catholic school seriously? the staff there is ok but a lot of them aren t catholic (so they think their religion is better than the schools and a lot of them only work there for the money, not because they want to work there and they don t get payed very much."

    "Bishop McNamara is a great school if you are looking for close relationships with students and faculty. Its a smaller school that has a strong family atmosphere. The percentage of students going off to college post graduation is well over 90%. Every teacher and faculty member make it their sole purpose to help you succeed!"

    "Over my 4 years at Bishop McNamara I have absolutely loved every experience I've had here. I came from a public grade school so going to a Catholic high school worried me a bit but I was so excited for change. I have felt more than welcomed into the Bishop McNamara family. All of the students and staff really do have such a special connection and I couldn't be happier with the decision I made to come to this high school. I would absolutely recommend this institution to anyone."

    "the teachers and environment are great and the school is really solid academically, religiously, and athletically. most of the students are nice and willing to help but some are less dedicated and don't seem to care much about their education or what happens to them"
