SJB have always been good to me! This school have made huge impact on me! It is a wonderful school! This school has such wonderful community! I love the fact that everyone really does care for one another! It doesn't matter what school you are at, there will always be changes not everyone is going to agree. I find that changing is always good! For those of you who are bad mouthing about this school, I find that is lack of kindness! It is a Catholic school, where is your faith? I am so very disappointed when people judge by what they hear. Number one lesson, before you judge someone, get to know them first. We finally have a leader who truly cares about the students and our community. The new administration that we have today are wonderful! They are so positive and always smiling! We need more people who are positive and encouraging one another. For those of you who are not happy here, it's okay you can leave, but there is no need to be bad mouth talking about this school or anyone else! that is just unprofessional! We are all adults here, so please let's just share more positive messages here!! So please spread more love and put down the hate!!
The new school administrator and priest are using this review site as their personal PR damage control pulpit, injecting a spattering of phony reviews to cover the reality, which is that this school is in bad shape and it's entirely their fault. Luckily parents in the local Catholic community, and in Ahwatukee in particular, are close knit and share valid information on how abysmal this Catholic school has become. My children won't be attending Bosco next year, which I say with a heavy heart because we have been here 9 years collectively. My younger children and I are already scheduled to tour SMB and OLMC, Bosco will not get my considerable loyalty or tuition dollars as they move toward tearing down what truly has been a fantastic community. They can trot out the damage control all they like, but they can't disguise that they have lost a tremendous front office staff as well as dedicated and beloved instructors due to the intolerance and ineffectiveness of the "interim" principal. They will have to find a way to bus new families in from far outside the inter parish area to hope that the damage they have done at Bosco goes unknown. The diocese has been ineffectual at handling the heart of what is wrong at Bosco, and long time families leaving will be a clear cut sign impossible to cover with fake reviews. I encourage all families to contact the diocese to express their concerns, as this is a hostile environment for parents and staff, which absolutely is a distraction from Bosco doing its job of educating the children.
Whole heartedly disagree. Scathing remarks from the priest at the helm to parents during mass and discussion is far from caring and compassionate. Opposing views are treated as personal attacks, and we are publicly admonished for not simply falling into line with a poor vision. Being chastised for expecting to partner with the school in shaping our children's futures is far from compassionate. Doing this in front of the children is outrageous. Unwillingness to take constructive input from parents whose children will carry with them the lifelong impact of their education is unreasonable. You teach what you preach, and caring, empathy and compassion has no part in this political battle being waged by the leadership.
The teachers foster this to a point. The families have done a exceptional job raising a group of quality kids. I do not attribute this to the school environment, though. The leadership has very little regard or respect for the faculty, staff and parents. Trickle down result is a lack of respect for the children.
