My children have received the instruction, respect, and discipline necessary to be successful. All children learn differently, and this is a school that supports that. The communication is great if you use the avenues provided, and these are continually improving. I do not hear about even small fights from my son, who had lots of stories to tell from Braddock and Allegany.

This is a great school that, I believe, provides the best education in the area. The teachers are well qualified and take extra time with any student who is having trouble. There is a sense of community and most of the students get along very well with each other. It offers great college prep courses. The school sends out papers often to let you know what is going on, so obviously some kids do not give them to their parents.

i have not been pleased with this school at all communication between students and parents the teacher is very poor. i am notifed of very little that happening in this school. it is not worth the money and time to have kids sit in school all day and be in school uniform and the kids want to a hand on learning to have fun!

As a student of Bishop Walsh I find the school to be great it helped me when I was in a jam when I was at braddock middle. The teachers are incredible and unlike the last comment the school is not dirty. The sports are also great I would know they give anyone a chance I have a backbrace and can not do sports but have tried. I thank this school for the new friends I have made and will keep for the rest of my life. This school is not a waste of money it also has a program to help children with special learning problems. The school also offers a chance for children to learn a religion and to meet other studants that have the same opinions. As a sophomore at Bishop Walsh I thank the teachers for their support.

We are extremely happy with this school. The academics are outstanding and the guidance that is offered to the students is just the right amount. The children are not coddled but yet the faculty are very caring. We tried the public school route and lasted 9 months. It is worth your time and your child's future to visit this school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
