What I like best about Bishop Connolly High School is the strong sense of community you feel when you enter the building, as well as the willingness of everyone to work together and help each other out. Everyone is so welcoming, from the students to the staff. Bishop Connolly is a great community because it blends these things with the strong academics based in critical thinking skills and commitment to teaching the student as a whole person.

The generosity of spirit I encounter every day in our students, faculty and staff
I have known many of our students and their families for years and enjoy watching all of our students grow, achieve their high school diplomas, and continue to work toward their life goals. I feel very blessed to be a part of this community, which really does feel like a family.
I love the spirit of community that is reflected in the students, faculty and staff of Bishop Connolly High School.
