The growth and changes that happen in high school are essentially the same for a teenager. What is different however, is the environment in which the teenager experiences high school, and that's where McNamara is different - here you are cared for and educated in a way that is not similar to other high schools. When you fall, we catch you. When you want to succeed, we propel you. The word that best describes our vibe is simply, love.  Emily Koenick, English Teacher, Bishop McNamara High School
