Overview

Overview

The Bishop's School says

While it may be true that a school is measured by what its graduates become, for The Bishop’s School it is the “becoming” part of this belief that has shaped the School’s mission since 1909. In addition to stimulating and challenging students academically, we believe that it is our role to help young people learn to be morally discriminating and to define ethical standards that will take them from adolescence to adulthood. We recognize that how we teach plays a crucial role in how well students assimilate information as well as how well they gain insight into how they will live their lives. Bishop’s teachers are accomplished in their fields and bring a passion for teaching and young people, and our classes are remarkably small, most have 14-16 students. When students have spent their years at The Bishop’s School, we trust that they will go forward relying on their own strengths and on the qualities that we have helped them develop while they were at Bishop's.

Curriculum

At Bishop's, the curriculum is designed to train students to think critically, to speak and write clearly and powerfully, and to bring their growing knowledge and skills to bear on problem solving across all disciplines. Bishop's students benefit from a structured educational experience that combines the best classical college preparatory curriculum with the most modern educational technology and methods. It is the philosophy of Bishop's Upper School that a disciplined study of academic coursework within a stimulating community of scholars is an excellent preparation for college and responsible participation in the adult world. Bishop's small class size allows students and teachers to engage in exciting and free-ranging discussions inspired by great voices and ideas of history, literature, languages, science, mathematics and the arts.

Mission Statement

The Bishop’s School is an academic community pursuing intellectual, artistic and athletic excellence in the context of the Episcopal tradition.
