I went into Connolly as a sophomore (moved from MD to MA), and I was really impressed with the school. Environment: Connolly has a great student population. You really get to know basically everyone. There really aren't any trash students (I know this sounds demeaning, but I didn't know what else to say). The school is very old. I'd have to say it is outdated: the windows, floors, tables, desks, and walls are very old. This can be a negative for some, but it really doesn't bother me. Teachers: This is a tricky subject. There are some great teachers, and there are some not great teachers. Being such a small school, there aren't too many teachers per department. I didn't like how teachers were teaching subjects in which they had no education in (a math teacher majored in history, but is teaching math). However, there is no lack in education. One history teacher has three master's degrees, and one went to Columbia University and NYU. Administration: Overall good; never fails to discipline. Overall: I am impressed with Connolly, and I recommend it to anyone who wants their child to get a better education and smaller environment.

I believe Bishop Connolly is far above average for this area, but in order to be excellent, they still must improve. I do believe they are in the process of improvement with their new administration. I do not regreat my choice

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
