Luna will stay several more years. Now, what they need to do is hire coaches/teachers, not teacher/coaches. Bishop has talent for years to come in all sports. Every year youth football, basketball and baseball goes up in numbers. A lot of good players on boys and girls side. It does no good for them to start early then get to junior high and lose interest in sports because of lack of coaching(JH boys). HS as well - need to let go of; Valencia, and assistant baseball coach. Bishop will rise in the next two years, and Luna will lead it!!! We are there in GBB and BBB, others will catch up.

How many pro athletes has Bishop produced? How many go on to get full rides to college? Focus on academics people... The parents get more out of their kid in sports than the actual kid.

Sad but very true.
Some parents are just beyond ridiculous when it comes to that.

There is no focus on academics in Bishop. Its all about sports and that's where the money goes. Its sad that education isn't the greatest thing about that school.

It is shameful how little academics matter to the school. When I went to school there, I barely learned anything of value. There are some teachers that are fantastic but others are just there for the paycheck or to coach sports. I remember one year we didn't have any assignments in our U.S. History class because the old history teacher just didn't care. He was too busy coaching our horrible, constantly losing football team. They really need less emphasis on sports and more on making sure their graduates are prepared for college.

I can't believe all this talk about the academic standard in the Bishop District! You must be outsiders and haters! The STATE has never found anything wrong with the education there as it has in Kingsville and other neighboring towns. Don't all education districts and levels cater to sports as it is the moneymaker for them? People don't want school taxes raised...who's going to finance all those new books and technology that is needed. If you or your children haven't learned anything from the education system there, it may be because of your own abilities (or lack of). Speaking personally, 3 generations have gone through that district and all have gone on to higher education with Dean's List GPAs. I am by no means a supporter of athletics, but it comes with the territory. I do not think the schools put any more emphasis on sports than education; but do resent the special treatment athletes receive. I think I would trust the findings of the State than "your opinion" on topix.
