My daughter goes to this school and she is now an eighth grader and she claims it is the worst school the price for everything is ridiculous and this school needs more efficient supervision. I'm NEVER sending one of my other kids to bishop.

I sent my child to Bishop Garriga from 6-7th grade but didnt continue sending her to 8th because the rules were ridiculous and the principle did not know what she was doing and had no clue how to run a middle school of 100 students. It is sad that such a school is still standing under this such authority. I would not recommend this school to anyone, ever. It is a disgrace.

I'm attending BGMPS and I had my best year of school. My 6th grade basketball team went to be undefeated, and we had a party at Peter Pipers in celebration. I was taught about my religion, and I learned a lot in the other subjects, too. I hope 7th grade at BGMPS will be as great as 6th.

I recently attended BGMPS and thought it was one of the best schools I have ever attended. Mostly all the parents were in volved in one thing or the other and the teachers are the best. The one thing I loved was that the work was challenging.

My 12 year old daughter was previously enrolled in public schools, My wife and I decided that we were fed up with the lack of discipline and supervision at these schools. We witnessed way too many fights amongst the kids, and recess was pretty much a free for all, with 2 teachers attending to 60 plus students. We decided that as she entered into 6th grade we would do whatever necessary to send her to private school. It has only been a week, but the changes are already evident, the children are well behaved and the day is busy with schoolwork, studytime, and of course church. The coursework is also more challenging which pleases us very much. We will update further as the year progresses.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
