Why Choose Bishop Shanahan High School
Brigid Jensen, Class of 2005
"I entered high school with the aspiration of becoming a scientific journalist to describe breakthroughs in layman’s terms for the general public. The high caliber of academics at Bishop Shanahan, particularly in math and science, enabled me to obtain a scholarship to a high-ranking undergraduate university where I majored in Molecular Biology, and ultimately a top-tier university for graduate school where I obtained a PhD in Neuroscience. While my professional goals shifted to a purely research-oriented career, my involvement in the advanced English courses and editorial staff of Shanaviews still influence me routinely during scientific manuscript and grant writing, editing, and formatting processes. While at Shanahan, I participated in diverse extracurricular activities ranging from the band, chorus and musicals, to the track and tennis teams. Through these I developed friendships with multiple groups of students, fostered a lifelong passion for music, and encouraged the continuous pursuit of an active lifestyle."
