This year BMCHS has gone "all iPad" replacing most school books with apps or eBooks. Assignments are given online via Schoology -- a Facebook like application where teachers post homework, messages, reminders of tests, etc. Students can download assignments and turn them in online. For my student this is great -- he no longer forgets to get or turn in homework and the grades reflect it. The teachers are very supportive, they stay an hour after school so any student wanting / needing extra help can go to any of their classes to get one on one support. The classes tend to work in groups of 4-5 students on projects -- so it is less "sit and listen to lectures" and more interactive in learning. All in all we love the way BMCHS is educating its students -- and we aren't even Catholic! There are regular, Honors & IB classes. My student wants to come early and stay late -- I practically have to drag him away. The kids are friendly and if you are into clubs there are 50 of them and there are 40 sports teams from football to bowling to tennis to golf to swimming to lacrosse -- name a sport and it is probably at Bishop Moore.

I graduated here in 2009 and my sister in 2013 and there's a lot of bright students that attend this school! I went to Freedom High School in Orlando FL my freshman year and switched to BM for 10,11 & 12th grade and I noticed such a huge difference in something as simple as self respect and the students' concern for knowledge and doing well in school. My sisters graduating class had 2 Valedictorians! It's a great school.

My two sons are graduates of BM (2005 and 2010). Both of them were well prepared for college. One went to Notre Dame as full scholarship and my other son is in UCF. BM is one of the best private schoos in Orlando. They have great academics and athletic. I'm proud to have sent my two boys to BM.

Not impressed. My daughter is getting the same education as any public school could offer her, and she is not being challenged academically. The only "above-average" thing about this school is it's athletics.

Two of my sons have attended BM. One is now @ MIT & the other will start @ Ga. Tech's Honors Program this Fall. They both had the opportunity to take almost ALL Honors & AP courses throughout. GREAT teachers for the most part, though they are concentrated especially within the Honors/AP curriculum. Caring & competent Principal. Great Sports & extra-curricular programs/ activities. Safe & Caring environment. Active participation @ local Technology, Arts, Sciences, Drama events / conferences. Always something going on @ school! :) It is very common to see children of alumni attending...great evidence of the worth parents/students place on this school. Well worth the money! Best value in quality education in Orlando! Thanks to all at BM from a VERY grateful single-parent!

My grandson is happy with Bishop Moore. The safer environment and higher standards may not be worth the financial sacrifice to some, but it is to our family. I do agree, however, that the teachers are old and very set in their ways, some downright mean, rather than strict. And some just cannot control their classes...hard to concentrate, so I am told by grandson and classmates.

For what you are paying, it is not worth it. your child would benefit more by going to a public highschool and then using the money you would have wasted in this 'institution' for college instead.

Posted February 12, 2009

My family has been apart of this institution for almost thirty years. The faculty and administration provide a safe and academic environment that fosters the growth of each young adult. They are truly prepared for college when they graduate.

Bishop Moore has become a very difficult institution, but there are many fantastic teachers including MR. Hall, Dr. Roer, Ms Goshen, etc. I recommend sending your child to challenge his or her abilities and intellectual capacities, however this school is for highly capable and knowlegable students.

This school was supposed to be fantastic as i heard from all the hype. However the teachers are sub-par and my son feels they are too old and out of touch. although a few sports programs are good, i.e. baseball and basketball, many are lacking. Overall the raised tuition is not worth it.

The school is very good. The staff is too uptight about having your shirt tucked in and having your I.D on. I have already received four detentions. (2 hours each) Bishop Moore has the finest music theory teacher around. Yes, the school lacks in more music programs. But the ones that are available are top notch.

Bishop Moore Catholic High School is an excellent place for any bright student to receive a wonderful education. There is an increasing diversity rate in the school in the faculty, staff, and the students. As any other place of education there are a few imperfections. This lies mainly in the Mathematics department. A few teachers in particular are not good getting students to participate and learn to the best of their abilities. Mrs. Cook & Ms. Mohr. I say this very confidently. Some of the best teachers at the school from all departments are Ms. Steadman, Ms. Moritz, Ms Warman, Mr. O'Grady, Mr. Shade, Mrs. Mickler, Ms. Finkbiner, Mrs. Grant, Ms. Ware, Coach Hedrick & Mrs. Bonanao. The Staff is also amazing and a select few people will look after you all 4 years. Coach Malatesta, Dean Wheeler, Mrs. Gros, and Mr. Reichart. The People that are the foundation of BMCHS!

The academics at Bishop Moore are very good. There are limited programs for art and music, but there are plenty of sports. Extracurricular activities seem to be lacking. There is almost no parent involvement.

Although the principal and teachers are good the quality of the education lacks consistency.Higher standards must be set for all educators.Ones who don't meet these standards need to be dealt with.Teachers are looked up to by the students and need to live up to those standards to provide a good example to all students.Consistency is the key.
