Everyone is very nice here, but intellectual curiosity is not encouraged. Rather, we are asked to conform and not ask too many questions. Not a good place for the arts and humanities.

I am a senior at BIshop Watterson and the past four years have been amazing. I was prepared very well for college, so much that every college I applied to I was accepted to. The students treat everyone will very much respect and same with the teacher. Not only is Bishop Watterson excellent in the classroom but they are excellent in athletics, with many league and state champions in almost every sport.

I have 5 children. Three attended Bishop Watterson High School two attended an All Boys Catholic High School. Bishop Watterson has an excellent academic program and a very competitive athletic program. The school is the largest central Ohio Catholic High School but still maintains its Christ Centered mission. We would highly recommend Bishop Watterson High School. Well worth the extra money to send our children to a Christian, Christlike educational enviroment.

The faculty and traditions at Bishop Watterson prepared me incredibly well for 4 years at the college level at the University of Dayton. The care for students success, academics, and extracurricular activities make this a well rounded school.

My son is a sophomore and has absolutely thrived in the environment Bishop Watterson offers. The academics are very challenging and has made him work even harder. The sports he participates in have taught him even more respect for elders, teammates and the value of time management. The Christian atmosphere is truly felt throughout the school and it is amazing to see my son grow into a person who cares about others while learning academic subjects including theology. I wouldn't have him go to school anywhere else. We love it! The traditions of the school both academically and in sports run deep and are felt by many. Having graduated from Watterson, I can see how the school has improved and changed with the times, but the Christian values and principles which are being taught, have stood the test of time.

We are Asian-American and this is a wonderful school. The teachers are knowledgable and respectable, the parents are the nicest people in the world, and the students have a very innocent and earnest quality. I love to see my son's smiling face as he climbs into the car at the end of the day.

I am not a parent, but as a 2002 graduate of Bishop Watterson High School, I can say that I was intellectually challenged in my four years there, more so than I would have been if I had attended the local public school. The teachers, faculty and students gave me the skills I needed to enter a well-respected university and also the skills to excel when I began my studies there.
