Many students are spoiled, ill-behaved and are unwelcoming. There have been three high school principals/associate headmasters over the past four years. There have been openly dysfunctional relationships among faculty/staff.
St. Bernard Preparatory School is a first class high school education due to the high academic standards, strict discipline and Christian environment. Respect is a standard at St. Bernard and is evident in the class room between the teacher and students, the student dress code, and the interpersonal relationships between peers. Many extracurricular activities engage the student's interest but the focus never deters from learning. St. Bernard is a virtuous environment that enables every student to feel safe and welcomed. The boarding school provides an enlightened multi-cultural student body by bringing together students across the country, international students and local commuter students. This truly is a beautiful place with a small student-teacher ratio every student is challenged to exceed their potential. St. Bernard graduates are highly successful and fully prepared to engage in their next level of learning.
my child attended the middle school last year and is a freshman in the high school this year. The staff are well qualified,caring,and giving. A wonderful, beautiful, historic campus. The student body is made up of students from all over the... world...the student body is diverse in religous denominations .The Catholic teachings and participation in weekly masses are great blessings.
This is the first year we have had a child in a private school and at first, we didn't think it would be such a major difference but it was..and all for the better. Her grades have improved and the teacher to student ratio is much smaller. There is not as much violence and all the children there are treated equal. Also, the after school activies are very fun and allow all students to be involved. I highly recommend SBP if you are looking for a private school.
