Strong character? Yes. Integrity, compassion and respect are not a requisite and is not taught or encouraged or examples of these values are demonstrated. Strong character is over developed but the character type is undesirable yet tolerated for those that pay tuition in cash and paid in full. This school was a Top 50 Catholic High School but it has lost its way and the only thing that matters is how much money do you have and what type of car do your children drive.
Our son just entered his freshman year at Bishop Verot. He loves it! The freshman retreat made all the kids feel so welcome. We are so happy he feels at home here. This is an amazing school with great academics, athletics and character that is built upon spirituality. Definitely consider Bishop Verot if you are serious about investing in your child s high school experience.
It is quite obvious that God is present in this school. I am so pressed how the students confuct themselves. I coached girls varsity basketball at Canterbury school and Bishop Verot Girls always had the highest level of sportsmanship and respect for their opponent. I am excited that both my children will be applying to attend Bishop Verot. Wonderful catholic school!
I am a student at Verot and I just want to say please, if you care about enjoying high school, do not go here. I moved here from out of state and was excited about this school because I thought it would have a family vibe (it's very small) and they made it sound like so much fun and a positive experience. I have hated it so much. The people here are very judgemental towards everyone and everyone creates drama and knows everyone's business. If you have any personal information that you tell anyone, it doesn't matter how trustworthy you think your friends are, the whole school will know immediately. The discipline here is ridiculous. You get detentions if your shirt isn't tucked in or if you don't have a belt. I got 5 detentions one time because (and I am dead serious) a teacher said my sweater wasn't ugly enough on Ugly Sweater Day. Another student got a demerit (3 detentions and a Saturday detention) for accidently cutting off a teacher while driving outside of school. They also take every opportunity to take your money. You have to pay for detentions and are required to buy shirts and stuff. And there are no freedoms at all. No freedom of speech, nothing. Please do not go here.
Bishop Verot stands head and shoulders above any school in this area - and most schools in general. Here is what you won't find a Verot: Bullying, dope, political correctness, diversity politics, secular material worship, an empty curriculum. What you will find: positive supporte in ALL endeavors, American values, collge core curriculum that focuses on traditional studies, faculty that are strong in their discipl;ines and actually care, extracurricular activies above par, a "community" of parents, teachers, students and alumni that want your child to succeed and will do all they can to help in every way. If this sounds impossible - go vist Verot and be ready to be shocked that any school can still hold the values you grew up with in today's sex, dope and PC craven world.
