The district seems to have addressed leadership issues and from what I can tell, there is more structure. I moved my two children from another 501 school to Bishop because of the convenience of the gifted services being offered. Fortunately my two got great classroom teachers as well as good enrichment from the exceptional ed programs. Sadly, we had to leave the district due to my job, but Bishop is definitely a neighborhood school and the parents and staff have a lot of pride in their school. My kids really enjoyed it! And although their test scores don't rank very high state-wide, I'd say it's one of the better in 501.

I have two children in Bishop, one in 4th grade and one in 2nd grade. They have been attending the school for the past 2 1/2 years. Some of the teachers are very good, but there isn't any overarching plan or leadership. My children have some noticable holes in their education, and especially it appears that during state assessment testing years, the kids are taught the test rather than how to actually use basic skills. Parents are not very involved, and there are communication problems with teachers not communicating what they need or what activities are going to occur far enough in advance for parents to plan these things into busy schedules. Bishop does have decent special needs support staff, my younger daughter had speech problems that were completely cured in less than 2 years.
