    My daughter has a wonderful experience at BJCS! Her teachers are excellent and go out of their way to ensure the individual needs of the students are met. I also feel that the teachers do an excellent job of keeping me informed on my child's progress. The principal and office staff are always friendly and welcoming. I feel like I am always well informed of school events and functions. There are also a great deal of opportunities for parental involvement. BJCS is a wonderful school and I highly recommend it.

    Bishop John Carroll is School has been a great caring environment for my grandchild. The teachers are enthusiastic and helpful. They help foster a love of learning. The teachers don't just teach what is expected they extend the objectives which foster higher order thinking skills. Excellent school teachers students parents and administration.

    The school's system is very unorganized the teachers and faculty are so rude to the students and this literally all happened when that new principal showed up.

    I am glad someone finally speaks up and shares the same opinion with me about the school. I am disappointed with the quality that my kid is receiving consider this is a private school. Bishop John Carroll used to have good teachers but seem like most of them left since the new principal got on board.

    Emphasis of BJCS is academics & character. Huge improvements & getting better new science lab library & teachers. Ranked #1 in latest listing of OKC schools & 1st PLACE @ 2012 City-wide Science Fair! BJCS is diverse with a variety of backgrounds demographic and socio-cultural factors. Everyone s down-to-earth; no one cares what car the family owns where someone lives or what shoes they wear. Background ethnicity financial situation are non-issues. Differences are accepted & embraced. Size of school forces kids to interact with everyone. The result is that it feels more like a family; students are close-knit & lack the worldliness of some peers. Being thoughtful is valued; negative behavior isn t cool. Sending our daughter to BJCS in kindergarten was one of the best decisions we ever made. She s academically strong in all subjects & she get along well w/ people from all walks of life. She is a dynamic & confidant leader. Most important she is caring & thoughtful. Eeternally grateful to their influence!

    We've been here for a year and it has been a very welcoming and supportive environment. The academics are the same throughout all Catholic elementary/middle schools in OKC and established by the Diocese. What's really set this school apart for us is the sense of community surrounding the school.

    I am very excited about the opportunities my children encounter on a daily basis at BJCS. They are surrounded by a caring faculty and staff who encourage academic achievement. The cultural diversity of the student body enriches the academic experience. As a high school public school teacher there is no place else I would rather my children be.

    I don't know how the previous poster could say the education is sub-par! My son has learned so much and loves school. In fact last year was his best year ever in school. They have Spanish music(taught by a Philharmonic cellist) computers PE chapel choir fine arts and sports. What's more many students go on to do great things in high school. The overwhelming care and support my son has received at this school goes above and beyond the call of duty. Fantastic school school!!!!

    We have had at least one child in Bishop John Carroll for the last 12 years. We have had some normal teacher/staffing changes like other schools in the area the last few years. Bishop John Carroll has produced Valedictorians and students at or near the top of their high school class at several private and public highs schools in OKC. There are numerous outstanding students now attending Classen Harding Bishop McGuinness and Mount St Marys and other fine schools that attended Bishop John Carroll. Our children have adjusted well to high school and were well prepared academically spiritually athletically and socially for high school. They were given great opportunities to participate in Speech contests Spelling Bees Science Fair projects Theater etc. and sports that may not have been possible at a larger school. The Christian environment and individual support from the Priest Principal and teachers makes it worth the cost.

    I am very dissapointed in the education that my son has received at this school. There seems to be many problems with school staffing and administration over the last few years. Because of the constant change in teacher and admin staffing I believe the children have suffered. The education seems to be sub-par to the education that he would recieve in the public school system. It seems that he is behind in many areas. We have done our part by trying to continue his eduction in the home. However it seems that it is not enough to replace what he is not getting through his time in school.
