This school is just about raising the number of students who attend. The principal has her favorites and allows teachers and staff to yell at parents in front of her. She never apologizes for things that happen to children there ( bullying by teachers and staff) nor does she require her staff to apologize. It is a great disappointment to our Catholic faith. She preaches one thing but does totally different things. She knowingly allows teachers and staff to bully the students and mistreat them daily. The good teachers always leave. She does not fill teacher spots and allows subs and uncertified staff "teach" the classes. We had to withdraw our daughter when a staff member made her cry and proceeded to yell, interrupt and wave her fiinger in my face. What a Catholic woman.
Sant Vincent de Paul is a great school i attended it Kinder - 8th grade , i was very satisfied with the teachers and the academic excellence it was reaching, it really taught me alot especially maners & was always a great feel to go to school, safe , very friendly and loving environment, very satisfying school. And they have now great programs ! My brother is currently attending this school and he is very pleased as well, coming from a former student (I) see much improvements made and being made to this school
St. Vincent De Paul is the best school ever!!!. I ve have had a few problems with the teachers, but the teachers were more than willing to make the issue better right away. They went out of their way to make sure situations where cleared up and I thought that was great. The Principal really cares for the kids and constantly ask the parents how their child is doing in school and are there ways to improve the issue. I cannot see my child in better hands. St. Vincent De Paul will be the school I pick for my kids and highly recommend.
My child has been attending SVdP School since she was in Pre-K. We tried public school for 1year and were completly disappointed, and will never attend again. My daughter is pleased and so I.
St Vincent de Paul Catholic School is a very good school. For one, it has great teachers and their academics are very competitive with other private schools. Principal administation is excellent, and it's faith based curriculum plays an important role taught to the students to become good leaders in the future. It is indeed a school which helps its students develop and master the skills of discipline with purpose.
At St. Vincent de Paul School there is a true spirit of support. Teachers support each other, there's support from administration, parents, the priests of the parish and volunteers. It is evident to all who visit our school that our students come first and our goal is to help all students reach their full potential.
Because I am an alumni, parent of students who attended here and I work here, I can honestly say that this is an excellent school. While every school has room for improvement, the atmosphere at St. Vincent has always been loving and supportive. I was sad to read the review of the parent who was so dissatisfied. I hope that he/she was able to gain some closure for their hurt. I believe we offer a strong curriculum We use Discipline With Purpose which offers children to develop Self-Discipline skills. We have fantastic teachers with a range of gifts offered to our students. We have a Learning Club after school to help students who may struggle, CYAA Sports Program for older kids, and an Extended Care Program. We have Partners in Education (PiE) Nights 5 times a year where we engage our families and our faculty. Come and check us out!!
Great school. Principal is great with the children. Principal stresses that God is good all the time; all the time God is good.
I am disappointed in this school. The principle is so cold and stand off-ish that she definitely has her favorites with kids/parents. The curriculum is okay but for the money the environment is Lousy they do have a few (by this I mean 5 or less) really great teachers. For being a Catholic school they don't disciple enough, and I am no hardcore army sergeant, but I feel like they don't want to make people mad AKA lose money. Take your money and your child elsewhere, they might just be better off at a public school.
My daughter just started kindergarden and I feel satisfied with the teacher and what I see with all the teachers, I don't know enough though to rate just yet, but I did go to catholic school as well and feel that it helped tremendously if you were to compare it to a public school. I chose to go the same route for my kids because of the discipline and the teacher to student ratio, I know this school is limited in some resources compared to other private schools but having it be a smaller school is not necessarily a bad thing!
SVDP school curriculum is good. The teachers can be nice and caring, but at the same time favoritism for returning student is a problem. Some of the students attending the school I feel, are students that did not succeed with their behavior in a public school. Some of the parents use Catholic schools as a last resort to straighten them out. My daughter is a second grader; she is sometimes bullied not only by her peers, but by 4th and 5th graders. This is an issue that is on going and not resolved. This school would be an even better school if, SVDP had a new plan of action for disciplining students who continue to disrupt other students in class and cause harm to other students. Too many chances are given to students that just can t seem to get it right.
Quality education. Need expanded music program. Good principal/parent relationships. Safe environment. Safety, discipline and respect for others high on the list.
Very caring staff, teachers know all the children. Very safe school.
