It is my child's first year there...so far so good. I am satisfied with the commitment and follow through of the teacher and Director. Parent participation allows the growth of the community within the school which helps student feel safe and nurtured.

I have had bad experiences with St. Aloysius school but I keep my kids there because of the church. If I had more time to transport them further, I would take them to another catholic school. All reviews should be respected, even the negative ones. All people experience things differently. My OPINION is that only credentialed teachers should teach and aides should assist. In public schools thats how it works. I don't feel St. aloysius does a great job academically. I work hard with my kids to fill in the gaps that the school doesnt teach. Lastly, WHY does St. aloysius use IOWA tests to test our kids if we live in California and NOT IOWA? We need to be consistant with CA based standards not Iowa.

As the 8th grade math instructor I would like to take this opportunity to thank the parents for sharing your comments and suggestions. Without your honest and continual feedback, St. Aloysius wouldn t be as great a school as it is now. I personally look forward to incorporating these suggestions so that next year s math curriculum will be even stronger. I strive to offer the best possible education and I truly believe that critical feedback is a very necessary and much-welcomed aspect of teaching. I am always on the search for new ideas, approaches, and perspectives to get the kids to love math the way I do. Please feel free to contact me through the main office if there are further comments or suggestions any parents would like to share. Together let s make this upcoming year our best yet! With sincerest regards, -8th grade math instructor.

St. Aloysius is a great school! Every teacher at this school is more motivated, more enthusiastic, and more up to date with their teaching methods than public school teachers in general. My daughter loves the after school clubs. She does yoga and science. The school has a full range of sports for boys and girls. The principal has brought energy and quality of edcation to St. Aloysius! I am convinced that if more people knew just how great this school really is, they would enroll their children right away! Look for yourself at the school web site and look at the "about the teacher" link for each grade. The tuition is very affordable. Scholarships are available to families with low income. It's just a great, great school! Every parent I know feels the exact same way.

This awesome school keeps changing every year for the better. The principal shows strong leadership as does the teachers and staff that follow her. As a parent, I am proud that my daughter is willing to try her best to get a perfect attendance acknowledgement every year! She loves all the extra activities now available afterschool and attends them. I'm glad we chose St. Aloysius to have had one daughter graduate and the other soon to follow.

St. Aloysius School is a safe and caring environment for our children. The education and extracurricular activities provided are outstanding. Most importantly, my children love coming to school each day and are receiving a standards-based education. I am extremely happy here.

I have to admit my son has never been so excited about going to school until he attended St. Aloysius, eventhough he has a speech impairment, this was the only catholic school that open the doors to him, after being rjected from 4 different schools. I really recommend this school.
