1. Bishop Brady is an unprofessional school. A Spanish teacher is facebook friends with some of my classmates, an English teacher sends salty mean and sarcastic emails to and regularly curses in front of students, a Math teacher takes joking around way too far, a History teacher mocked an exchange student for not knowing what Mass is in front of other students, and another Math teacher treats students like peers and not students.
2. Bishop Brady is politically biased. So many of my teachers spent the last 3 months bashing Trump in class.
3. Bishop Brady has snobby students. Sorry daddy didn't buy me a BMW! The drama among my classmates is something that should be left in middle school. These are people who are going to be in college next year?
4. Bishop Brady takes a million exchange students in order to "bring diversity" but its really just about the $$$. And then the school doesn't do anything to integrate them into larger community.
5. Bishop Brady hires unqualified teachers. It has a theology teacher and a french teacher only a couple of years older than some of its students.
6. Bishop Brady does not have a welcoming or present administration. Its principal does not leave her office. I have personally never seen her walk through the halls in the 3 years she has been here.
7. Bishop Brady discipline policies send mixed signals. I finally earn senior priveleges and juniors get away with doing everything I waited 4 years for.
8. Bishop Brady is not a Catholic school. No one cares about their faith there. No one takes theology classes seriously. I am not personally catholic, but i'm pretty sure that quoting Oprah during morning prayer isn't exactly catholic.
9. Bishop Brady blurs the line between students and teachers. Half of its teachers are coaches. As a result my friends who play sports treat teachers more like coaches in the classroom.
10. Bishop Brady is a sauna for 1/3 of the school yr. The lack of AC in half the school makes learning impossible when you're ready to pass out.
11. Bisop Brady doesnt have internet that works regularly.
The cafeteria food is gourmet!
My son goes to this school, and I must say that at first it was an odd transition coming from a school where he knew everyone, to Bishop Brady where he only knew a few people. However, three years later he is thriving. We see his grades improve, his work ethic soaring, social skills thriving and he seems happier. Everyone at the school works to make the ttransition to Bishop Brady easy, most notably the admissions office. Bishop brady really does work towards it motto of faith, learning, and service.
