9 Parent Reviews for Cardinal Gibbons High School

A school really shouldn't describe itself as "Catholic" if the manners and morals of the place don't fit. This isn't a voice of "self-righteousness," but just common sense. Student culture should reflect ordinary decency, not vulgarity. Conversations should be positive, about good things, not about porn, ...  Read more

This school is pretty great for students trying to get the full high school experience. The teachers are extremely helpful if a student is in need.

My sons go to Cardinal Gibbons and they would not leave for anything! The admin and teachers actually care about he kids!! It the students are happy in a place that they spend most of the day, they will do better in school. Kids stay at school until evening because the school has so much spirit.

I attended Cardinal Gibbons for high school. My sister is there now along with two of my cousins and I have 2 more cousins that will enter next year. The school is outstanding. My classes were limited to about 20 students and many of my teachers were former professionals. Many of my government/history ...  Read more

High schools do not get better than this one. My two sons thrived at CGHS. The caring environment, the academic structure and the parental involvement is second to none.
