This school has so much to offer a child. The environment is safe and academics are second to none. The standards are set high as is the grading scale levels. An A is earned!! Not to say the school doesn't have it's issues. Keeping up with the 'new' in the public schools doesn't always happen but final outcome still seems to be a step above the rest. It may be more challenging than some schools but I am confident that I am providing the best education my child can get in Bismarck and continue on in secondary education and in life for success. I'm still willing to recommend it - the problem lies in getting in!
Cathedral School has a very challenging curriculum and excellent teachers with years of experience. My 4 children all attended Cathedral through 8th grade and credit their success in college and their careers to the high expectations. Expect homework and assignments that are very challenging. Your child will really learn how to manage their time especially at the junior high level.
