I totally agree with the last review. We received a bill before my child was even officially accepted. They are not organized and all they seem to care about is money.

Such a fake "catholic school", you get behind on tuition and they refuse to take my son back into their "catholic" school because I can not pay the full amount I am behind. If you struggle financially do not send your kids here. This school cares more about money than they do about their students. Sounds like the Catholic Church, no wonder my daughter is Atheist.

I don't attend McDevitt , but I did go to their Open House. I love the location of this school, so suburban and fancy sitting right next to Arcadia University ^_^ .... But when I started to tour around the school, meet the students, and observe the attitudes of the teachers I was highly disappointed. The principal didn't seem interested to be there and give a speech. And a lot of the staff and students talked like they were bored =/ ... They don't offer as much as Ryan does, and their textbooks looked outdated. But other than that the people here are really nice, I know a few and they're smart!! It's up to you if you take advantage of your education or not. ^_^

I hated bishop mcdevitt! The kids are rowdy and ignorant. The teacher are just as disrespectful as the students. There was NO dicipline and i learned nothing. Dont get me wrong, if you want SOME cool friendship (some being the key word) and a day full of nothing then go here. There are about 3 or 4 good teachers there (who really should consider leaving) so hopefully you will learn 1 or 2 things. But i do not recommend this school at all!

I just want to say, if you only attended McDevitt in grades 9 and 10 you would have never had to choose electives given they are only for 11 and 12 grades. McDevitt is a great school, it was accurately stated previously, it educates students that really want to learn.

McDevitt is ok. I have gone to both Abington and McDevitt (9 & 10 at McDevitt. 11 &12 at Abington). I feel that Abington is by far a better school for Math and Science. Abington also has much better Elective Courses then McDevitt. Both schools have great teachers though and the Eng & Hist classes are on par with each other.

I think the school dedicates itself to educating the students that want to learn. There is positive reinforcement to learn

I attended Bishop McDevitt High School and feel of this school verses friends who attended public school - this school beats Abington High School 100%. Although we didn't have the swim team or extracurricular activities of the Public school - hands down eductational and socially this is the best school! And the teachers cared about their students! They weren't there for the money (as public schools pay more) they cared about us the students and the discipline was terrific!
