Bishop Machebeuf High School 2

I believe that the school has drop its standards over the last 10 years and with the new principle Marc Nestorick and his style of management I can only see a further decline in community within the school. I would ask questions about this new principle before committing your child to attending this school.

We have a great girls basketball program - always competitive in 3A - top 5 finish in State last year! Great coaches, facilities, and school support. We've also had two Div I basketball scholarship winners in the last four years. This would be a great place to go if you're looking to play competitive girls basketball in a small school environment.

For outstanding leadership, great faith formation, top-notch college preparation...Bishop Machebeuf is the BEST! The school is equipped with everything a student needs to succeed. The school's former leader, was dedicated and active in ensuring students and their families received what was necessary to achieve the best education. This was greatly aided by an excellent and superior administration, vice principal, dean of students, office staff and counselors working as a cohesive unit. The new principal seems to be a good choice, as he is involved with getting to know students and families allowing for a seamless transition. Most of the teachers are worth their weight in gold.

Authentic Catholic Education - we're entering into our 3rd year with children enrolled in BMHS and we couldn't be more pleased with the education, the environment, and the authentically Catholic atmosphere. We're exceptionally pleased with the leadership, starting at the top with the principal who seems to attract teachers who are young at heart and burning with fire for the Faith. This is definitely worth every penny of what is a reasonable tuition compared to the other Catholic high schools in the area.

We are a transfer in family coming from Regis. It has been an absolute joy to be a part of the Machebeuf family this year. The solid leadership and the teaching staff create an environment of strength and focus. We have found it to be a positive reenforcement to the catholic values that our family hears from home and church... It is not a catholic school in the name only like so many of the high schools in the area. My teens have learned more about their faith here and see a faculty that is living it out everyday with them. We are thankful to have found Machebeuf and plan on sending all of our children there...even though it is a 45 minute drive one way. I think that tells a lot.

High turnover in teachers. This school seems more concerned with the dress code than academics. Some of the best and most experienced teachers have been let go. It's no wonder this school was dropped from the Top 50 Catholic High School list. College Counselor consistently drops the ball when sending college transcripts.

There has been a large turnover in the staff and faculity. Several of the best have not come back. There is obvious tension between the teachers and the administration.

We have 2 children currently enrolled in the school. We have been extremely please with the support and opportunities that the kids have had. I am amazed that some people get hung up on uniforms etc. The older information on this site does not represent the current environment. The current principal and staff have been in place for 3-4 years and have made great progress in enrolling quality students with involved parents. Our only complaint with the school is that we wish a few more families would find it so that it was just a bit bigger for the kids that want to be more competitive in sports! We highly recommend it to all!

I cannot say enough good things about this school. My daughter transferred in as a junior, and had a difficult time adjusting. The staff could not have been more helpful and caring. I spent many hours at the school with different staff members including the counseling staff, principal and individual teachers, all of whom offered encouragement and help for what was admittedly a very difficult student. I credit Bishop Machebeuf for helping my daughter survive and actually graduate from high school. She is now a sophmore in college and is doing well.
