“There’s a lot to love about BG. You meet many new friends – whether they come from the same neighborhood from you, or traveled 11,000 miles as an exchange student to come learn here, they become your valuable friends and family. The teachers are people that you can look up to and trust to give you the best learning experience possible.”

“BG gave me an opportunity many other high schools wouldn’t have been able to give me which is why I find it so worth it to travel and learn in a school that continuously pushes me to be my best.”
– Morgan Faulkner ’21, New Ipswich, NH
“[Our daughter] transferred to BG this year. …Our biggest regret is that we didn’t do it sooner. The students and the staff at BG have made her feel right at home. The transition was seamless. She’s feeling challenged and supported academically, and has made lifelong friends.”
– Jennifer Ratta, parent of Shelby ‘21, Littleton, MA
“My experience at Bishop Guertin High School has been outstanding and exceeded my expectations for the school year. The environment is full of students and staff that are friendly and welcoming. Every day I learn something new, which I could not say before at my previous school. I genuinely enjoy going to school every day since it is full of academic enrichment and great people. The athletics program is wonderful, giving many opportunities to competitive athletes and students that are looking to try a new sport. One of my favorite parts is the school spirit. Everyone supports one another by filling ‘The Nest’ at games, and no one is ashamed to show school spirit since being a Cardinal is something to be proud of.”
– Megan Anstiss ’25, Chelmsford, MA
“BG has overall been an amazing experience for me from freshman year up until now, junior year. I have become close friends with so many people especially those on my soccer and basketball team. The environment at Bishop Guertin demonstrates the drive for success for all students.”

My experience at Bishop Guertin this year so far has gone far beyond my expectations. All the kids are so friendly and I made so many good friends very quickly. The teachers are always so helpful, and they want you to succeed. They are always available for extra help when you need it. I couldn’t say this before, but at the end of the day on the way home, I can actually say that I learned something and enjoyed school that day. I have had such a great experience so far at BG and I can see a great future ahead with my academics, sports, teachers, and friends.

Everybody here is so kind and I am meeting so many new people and making so many new friends. I am really enjoying my time at BG. The workload is an adjustment from middle school, but I was able to adapt pretty quickly! For me, I rate BG a 10/10.

I would say that my Bishop Guertin Experience so far has been exciting, challenging, and fun all at the same time! I love how there are always fun and exciting aspects such as an experiment or a demonstration in the classes that are more on the challenging side. And I always feel like I am being pushed to the best of my ability in every single class that I am taking.

Bishop Guertin has cultivated an environment of peace and harmony within their community, and my high school experience has been nurtured under this care. It is given that all our academic years come with stress and anxiety, yet the faculty and staff are the main reason why Bishop Guertin students are able to pull through their high school years with a successful outcome. With our school’s strong belief in community and active steps in promoting unity, my Bishop Guertin experience has flourished over the years.
