I just wanted to sincerely thank you and your staff for helping make this 'new school transition' an extremely easy one. My kids are loving Bishop McHugh School... and, even more amazing, they are saying they 'love' subjects they've strongly disliked in the past (i.e. science and math). Obviously, their teachers are really making these subjects enjoyable to learn. I am extremely impressed with many aspects of the school... such as the weekly wraps, facebook presence, teacher's innovative teaching methods (i.e. 6th grade PBL), the use of numerous technology programs for homework and tests and even the efficiency of your car line... just naming a few. I am thrilled that we finally made the change and now am just wish we might had made it sooner!! Again, thank you for all you have done... my kids have been impressed that 'the principal' is so involved in everyday operations... i.e. greeting students in the morning, covering classes, etc. It's truly been a wonderful first four months of school!! Looking forward to a great 2016

Moved here from Hockessin, DE in 2012. Our 2 kids (1st & 3rd grade) love the school and so do we! Great family atmosphere and an amazing moder campus (smart boards in all classrooms). Academically and socially well rounded. Feels like we stumbled across a well kept secrete.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
