    "An outstanding opportunity and amazing school. My husband and I are Ivy League alumnis and Bishop's is reminiscent of an East Coast boarding school atmosphere-- academic rigor-- not for everyone, but well balanced. The staff and teachers are courteous and professional. Our kids have been very happy there."

    "Our children have had a phenomenal experience at this school. They are curious, well-rounded kids who are involved in sports and the arts, and have thrived in this challenging academic environment. We are as involved as working parents can be, and love the opportunities to be part of this school community. They have improved the technology in the classrooms and the learning center and library are first-rate. The performing arts programs are exceptional. Your kids can find their passion and excel at this school, whether it is academics, athletics, arts, or all of the above. We love that our students can pursue subjects through independent study if the school does not offer a course, and there are teachers who are dedicated and passionate about their students. Graduates come back and say that college is easy for them because Bishop's taught them how to be successful in academics. It is worth every penny."

    "The school is fantastic for students who are passionate about some cause, sport, or activity. It is brimming with talented students from all of the county. The students respect one another's gifts and recognize their talents. In addition, the school boasts an excellent academic program, much more rigorous and specialized than those of San Diego public schools or other private schools in the area. Some concerns include the environment of wealthy students. From personal experience, they are not arrogant, not because they are inherently so, but rather the environment The Bishop's School provides. Nurturing of talents, as well as providing opportunities to learn and grow make the school very special."

    "As a student of The Bishop's School, I am constantly academically stimulated. The small class sizes, and dedicated teachers enrich my learning. Despite some beliefs, Bishop's is not made up of arrogant students, but is instead filled with students who express a curiosity for knowledge. The only downside is that the transition from a public school to Bishop's can be challenging as it was for me. K-8 I was in public school, and I made all A's, but upon transferring, I received my first B. However, once one becomes accustomed to the work load and difficulty of Bishop's one will fully realize the benefits of this school."

    "I don't think parents should be submitting review. They're not the ones going to school at Bishop's, after all. The teachers are great. It doesn't matter if some of their styles are "antique," they're still doing a fantastic job of teaching the information. And no, the school will not necessarily stress you out. There is a wide range of courses available, with workloads highly depending on the classes one takes. I, as well as others I know, aren't taking classes just for a good transcript. That's not why we go to Bishop's. We go to Bishop's because it allows us to enjoy learning in classes we want to take. And why does it matter if the buildings are outdated? My grandfather was educated in a very small, old school with inadequate facilities but received numerous degrees, including one from MIT. So listen to the people who go to Bishop's and spend more of their time there than at home, not parents. I wake up before 6:00 AM every morning, live 25 miles from school, and spend tons of time commuting and doing homework. I'm not stressed though. Part of going to Bishop's is taking advantage of your opportunity at the school, not complaining about it."
