My daughter is a Freshman at Verot this year and without a doubt loves school. As parents, we struggled with how we were going to pay for it after paying for private tuition since Kindergarten and another child in private school.We knew in our hearts it was the right choice so we were were willing to
... Read more make the sacrifice. It has been worth every penny. The staff is friendly, eager to assist, and the teachers dedicated to their students. Their mandatory tutorial for teachers 230 to 3pm has been such a help for my child. The school has a wide variety of clubs and ways for all students to get involved. At the first home Varsity football game, I was amazed at the Viking Spirit from the staff, students, and parents. The education is great but it is all the faith formation each student is given that impresses me everyday. I thought it was wonderful that the Seniors did not harass the incoming freshman but welcomed them with open arms including decorating their lockers before school started. The Freshman Retreat weekend with the Seniors was an amazing experience. Our family could not be happier with our choice and excited for another Viking student to start in 3 years. Read less

As an alum, parent, and volunteer, I've experienced Bishop Verot from several different perspectives. My personal experience as a student in the 80s helped set me up for success in college and in my profession, not to mention providing a positive, faith-based environment for learning. The tradition

A year ago we began our search for a high school. I couldnt be happier that we chose Bishop Verot. Only 1 month into the school year and we are very pleased.

Upon learning that were were going to be moving to SW FL, we brought our children down to see the schools. Once seeing Bishop Verot, our daughter immediately decided this was the school she wanted to attend. The staff, teachers & students were very helpful, friendly & made her feel welcome instantly.
... Read more My husband & I toured the school with our children & were impressed with the small class sizes & the curriculum offered at Bishop Verot as well as the athletics & clubs available for the students. We especially like the commitment of the teachers & staff to the students success. I don't know of any other school where the teachers stay 30 mins after the final bell for tutorial. Our daughter was nervous on her 1st day of her freshman year in HS, especially being brand new to the area & knowing no one, but came home very happy. She told us she was SO glad that she chose BV because she absolutely LOVES being there. She made a ton of new friends, both freshman & upperclassmen, & felt like she really belongs. She has adjusted quickly to the amount of work given & is doing great in school. We couldn't be happier with our decision & look forward to our son attending BV in 2 years. Read less

I'm so pleased to have made the decision to send my Daughter to Bishop Verot, two years after her Brother graduated.

When a friend told us about teachers yelling and swearing in the local high school, my Daughter said she couldn't imagine such disrespect in the classrooms of Bishop Verot.

The group of friends who graduated with my Son two years ago are all now excelling in their Jr. Years in College.

It's a community as well as an education and I am proud to be part of both. Read less

Speaking as an alumni, this school was horrible. Parents, if you want your children to be continually hazed or bullied by teachers and students alike, send your child here. If you are not a Catholic, you will be treated differently. The school claims to emphasize observance over participation in mass,
... Read more yet teachers penalize a student for standing quietly and not singing during mass while paying no attention to people fooling around or making paper airplanes. The only redeeming quality of this school was a superior education to public school. (However, the average Lee County Public School education is not too hard to beat) The school thinks by being over-bearing and mega Catholic that they're creating better children. From a student's perspective, it only caused students to become better at hiding their cell phones, drugs, and alcohol. Read less
