My little granddaughter attends this school and she loves it. She is in Pre-K and her teacher sends the work home so that you can view what they have been working on and you always know what they are studying.

Bishop is a very good school. Nothing but good information is heard about this school. The on thing that I like is that the whole staff is involved with every afterschool program they have. The school is very creative in helping their students become successful.

Bishop Elementary is a good school. My son enjoys being in school everyday. They havea good discipline in school. Thats. great. The Physical Education is outstanding. The music is more advanced as compared to his old school. They can take home books as many as they can. If every do their part, This school will be the best school in this area. How I wish he brings home his work everyday so that I can check what kind of lesson they have in school.

Great school the teachers are great and I enjoy that this school is small and the children get that one on one attention. I am happy to know that my daughter wakes up every morning happy and ready to start a new day. I know that has to do with her having a great teacher.
