Amazing school.... We tried a different Campbell school before transferring to St. Lucy and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! Our three children attend St. Lucy. They love their school and so do we. Its a warm and welcoming community environment. The parent participation is through the roof. If I could, I would give the parents extra stars. The staff and teachers are caring and dedicated to the children. Students get a well rounded education: academics, arts (music, choir, drawing), technology, field trips, P.E, foreign language, community outreach, religious faith. Like all things, not everything is perfect. Spanish classes don't formally start until 6th grade. A bit late in my opinion. Despite this point, St. Lucy has many great attributes that outweigh any shortcomings. The principal, parents and staff are always looking to continuous improve the school and offerings.
At first I didn't consider this school for my kids because of the outside (it's in need of some updating). Then some friends told us about it and said "if you liked St Francis Cabrini, you'll like St Lucy's even better!". How could I resist checking into it? As soon as we were inside and met the staff & teachers, saw the new computer lab & library, and spent time in the Kindergarten room, we were in love. We never considered going to a small school, but it truly feels like family. If there are issues or questions, someone is always there to help out. We found the parents of the kids (regardless of grade) are all there to pitch in and help, and are super friendly. Their attitude is "it takes a village" and a friendly, helpful village is what they have. The teachers are patient, kind and supportive. They give add'l help to the kids that are advanced so they aren't held back, and they provide add'l help (outside of class) for the kids that need it. No one is ostrocized or made to feel different. Everyone strives together to achieve great things. It's a great environment for the kids and the parents! Now all the school needs is a new paint job. :)
I could never dream of a better school to send my 3 kids to. The environment here is a community of non-threatning, caring, educated people that put the children first. The faculty seems to put in numerous hours into making the education of the students top notch and the environment nurturing. This school is like a family as the staff knows each of the students personally and treats them with respect. They are always striving to be the best teachers and admin. around constantly educating and bettering their teaching techniques to keep up to date with technology. I feel very lucky to have found this school.
This is our third year at St. Lucy School (2 children enrolled) and we couldn't be happier. High academic and conduct standards, talented and welcoming teachers and administration with an eye to continuous improvement, friendly and supportive parent community, new after-care facility, all wrapped up in a environment that instills a joy and love of learning in the children. My kids look forward to going to school each day (and we look forward to the school events to spend time with the parents, teachers, and administration!) We are delighted with our decision to choose St. Lucy School.
We have 2 children at St. Lucy's and couldn't be prouder to have our kids get a great education, learn about our faith, while also exposing them to an array of extracurricular activities. The community at school and in the parish is very strong and active. The admin/staff continue to change their curriculum in order to keep up with the fast pace technology that we are surrounded by.
We have three children in this school and we love it. The teachers are amazing and instill a love of learning in the children. We visited many schools and found St Lucy's to be the obvious choice. The school curriculum is excellent and the community is very welcoming. We highly recommend attending the open house and/or taking a private tour.
This is literally the worst school you could ever imagine. From cranky 2nd grade teachers to rude junior high teachers. If i could, I wouldn't even give it one star. The athletic and education program is a joke, you will NOT be prepared for high school. The teachers do nothing to help your education. DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS, OR EVEN YOUR WORST ENEMIES TO THIS SCHOOL.
This is my 3rd year as a parent at this school and every year it just keeps getting better! This is a wonderful Catholic school that is very well rounded. Strong academics, a great array of extra curricular activities, an involved and caring parent community, great school leadership all wrapped up in a nice Christian environment. Our school is actually full of families who have come here based on word of mouth from other proud and happy St. Lucy families who love this place!
This is a great school to have a child go to.. The Music teacher is out of this world.. The art that come from the art teacher is on the same page too. Sports is high on the list too.. If you want a all around school that care for the children I would say this is the school for you!
