Sadly the new administrators are the worst power-hungry individuals you will ever meet. They have no understanding of the mission of the Catholic church, and lack all the integrity that pass administrators have held on for so long. The students are welcoming, but you can't get too far when the blinds are leading the blinder. It is no longer about the hard work and service to the students but bullying staffs and lazy administrators who ignore the concerns of parent and student - Sad
Ineffective because they lack compassion and understanding. A good teacher sees the weakness of his/her student and aims to rectify it, by helping them overcome their worst barriers. A great teacher is the beacon of light in a student's academic journey.
There is no right or wrong answer to this, because even if students received a lot of homework, and the teaching is not done right, a student will fail regardless due to poor teaching methods of a teacher. If homework is few and students don't do a lot, but again are taught well in class, one will not substitute much for the other.
There's not much honesty. Honesty is an element long gone from our society and todays so-call Christian - environment. Some staffs are ok, but they seem to fear the administrators, so go along with them. There is no fairness, as it's evident students are treated differently. In the end, it all boils out in favor of the staffs favorites, or students who have a connection or "friends" of the insiders. Of course no will admit it, but enroll your child in for a while and watch as "the ____" with the order pushes and bullies them with his/her delusional policy.
The teachers, staff, administration, and students of Bishop Chatard High School are family. We've had 2 children graduate and go on to great colleges with much success. We have 2 children there now who are being cared for during a very trying time in our family's life. No other place has opportunities like BCHS because of it's size and the academic excellence provided by caring teachers, staff, and administration. The block scheduling referred to in a previous post offers an entire hour per day for each class. More time for teaching, more time for reviewing, more time for students to complete assignments and ask questions during class time. BCHS is an exceptional choice for anyone wanting a solid, top of the line education for their children with the addition of amazing Catholic teaching immersed in every aspect of their school day.
Very little quality teachers. They seem so unequipped to teach that the students have late start every Monday and early dismissal every Friday. That is 2 full weeks of education lost so the teachers can have staff meetings.
