Bishopy lynch, although is smart in tapps, not as smart as other private high schools. the school can be tough, but only if you take the right courses. Good at basketball. kids are wild and smoke a lot of weed so, be observant.

as a student at Bishop Lynchi do believe that i have a pretty accurate view of our school. at the moment im a freshman (class of 2007)and from my observations of this year,it seems to me that the teachers dont really pay much attention to their students...there are teachers who just teach for the money,teachers who teach for the recognition and then there's one teacher that just LOVES giving uniform citations. He spends more time scouting the halls trying to find whats wrong with you and your uniform(by now i think all blhs students know what teacher im talking about)than actually teaching. Upon visiting BL, you'll find that it is a very nicely put together high school, but once youre here you soon realize that the school revolves around the cheerleaders, football, and basketball players.These athletes shouldnt take offense to what ive said because i was a cheerleader this year...

Ok, as a student at Bishop Lynch, I can honestly confirm that Bishop Lynch is a school focused on sports (mostly football) and discipline! one time at an assembly, when we were supposed to be congratulating all of the athletics, 3/4 of the assembly was concentrated on football. it actually made us late for lunch and the first lunch only got about 10 minutes to eat and the others got the normal 30. the teachers are so much easier on the football players, discipline wise and education wise. it is almost like they dont care what they are doing. it should be a school concentrated on education not sports. can i get a little equality here?!

As a former graduate of this school, Bishop Lynch's facility and staff prepared me for the days ahead in college. I will never forget my teachers, and the guidance I recieved from the school is still apart of my life today.

Bishop Lynch has great teachers although they tend to lack some quality in the administrative dept. Although the school is a Catholic private school their focus is more on education. Their current dean of students, lacks some experience with our youth. They have great parent participation during football season.

My daughter graduated last year from this wonderful school. It was the absolute best experience for both of us. I truly miss being a part of the community this year. I commend the BL faculty and staff for an outstanding four years.

Excellent private high school in east Dallas. Combination of dedicated teachers, parents and students with the school's strict no-tolerance policy and Catholic orientation provide for a high quality education. Very expensive, but worth it for the serious student.

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.
