29 Parent Reviews for Bishop Shanahan High School

This school is terrible. The reviewers who say this school deserves zero stars are correct. Teachers/nuns scream at the students all day; they also embarass students in front of other students. The academics are poor and the students are treated like criminals. Out of touch administration. I took ...  Read more

this school deserves 0 stars. Students are guilty before they are ever given a chance to be innocent and are treated like toddlers. As a mother of a graduating student I feel as if over the last 4 years I have flushed 30,000 dollars of my hard earned money sending my child to a school with a disciplinarian ...  Read more

Where the administration treats students like toddlers and parents are treated like children. Potential to be such a good school if changes are made at the top.

As a parent of two graduates, I believe Shanahan has given then an excellent well-rounded education. There is not a sport, club or fine arts opportunity that they could have wanted. There are so many social activities that offer opportunities to grow and have friendships that last a lifetime. Each ...  Read more

I went to Shanahan with high hopes, that dream was quickly crushed. They teach and preach two different things. They do not treat the students with much respect and force there beliefs on you. They tear you down rather than bring you up and make you feel so bad about yourself for disagreeing with their ...  Read more

Bishop Shanahan is a high school that upholds great values and is prideful of them. It is a great school to make friends because my class created bond together that will be unbroken. However, I feel that I was not prepared for college at all. The teachers at this school did not care about the students ...  Read more

It's a good school. But if you're in track 3's, the teachers give up on you and they don't like you. You're looked down upon.

On a scale of 1 to 100, I would give it an zero. What this school says it is like and how it really is are extremely different things. The fine arts program is all they care about. If you are not in the fine arts program or student council then you are ignored. It is immensely superficial. The cliques ...  Read more

(Continuation of review) For fine arts, the program is amazing. If you involve yourself, you can end up singing all over the world. The plays are great, as shown by attendees that have no connection to Shanahan. The art program at intro level is mediocre depending on the teacher, but many students complete ...  Read more
