    I went into Connolly as a sophomore (moved from MD to MA) and I was really impressed with the school. Environment Connolly has a great student population. You really get to know basically everyone. There really aren't any trash students (I know this sounds demeaning but I didn't know what else to say). The school is very old. I'd have to say it is outdated the windows floors tables desks and walls are very old. This can be a negative for some but it really doesn't bother me. Teachers This is a tricky subject. There are some great teachers and there are some not great teachers. Being such a small school there aren't too many teachers per department. I didn't like how teachers were teaching subjects in which they had no education in (a math teacher majored in history but is teaching math). However there is no lack in education. One history teacher has three master's degrees and one went to Columbia University and NYU. Administration Overall good; never fails to discipline. Overall I am impressed with Connolly and I recommend it to anyone who wants their child to get a better education and smaller environment.

    I believe Bishop Connolly is far above average for this area but in order to be excellent they still must improve. I do believe they are in the process of improvement with their new administration. I do not regreat my choice
