I am a current student at Bishop Blanchet and love going to school there. I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else. Everyday you learn something that you didn't already know. The teachers there are willing to help you succed if you are struggling with the material that you are learning. It's a great learning enviroment and I constently tell my friends that don't go to Blanchet that they should have come here because everyone there is very nice! ~ Sophmore Class of 2007

I went to Blanchet some time ago. I have to agree to a certain extent with a couple of the reviewers. If you did not attend a Catholic grade school ie already have a base of friends attending Blanchet whom you had known for some time, weren't above average in sports or from, at least, an upper middle class family, it was very difficult to fit in socially. One positive was that Blanchet's academic standards served me well in college. I seemed more prepared than a lot of my college classmates for the amount of studying college demanded. However, I always felt that the faculty shoeboxed the students and once you were labeled as an average student, there was little you could do to improve your grades or class rank.

I went to this school and hated it! If you were not wealthy, athletic, or caucasian, forget being recognized for anything. There were more drugs in this school than the public schools of the time. The richer kids could afford it.

I was a student here and did not have a positive experience. If your child does not play sports, do not send them to this school. There is no support for children with learning disabilities as well as the fact that the school is not wheel chair friendly.

I am a student at Blanchet and absolutly love it. It was the best choice I made with out my parents telling me what they wanted. From my experience there, I believe Blanchet it one of the most spirited high schools in Seattle (Washington). The faculty and staff love to get the students involved. Blanchet was the right choice for me!

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.
