The teachers are wonderful, they teach the students and are great with parents. the only thing is the principal who doesn't practice what she preaches.

New Principal and New attitude things are great at this school! You can see the change right away, it's nice to get greated with a smile instead of a frown and also the kids being treated with respect as well as the parents.

These teachers work hard to try every way to help the students to learn. They keep us informed about progress.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
This school has challenging expectations. That means my son has steady homework. It can be difficult to complete each night, but we feel it is important.

Develops character: Strongly agree

Our children are given opportunities to develop into leaders. They are so proud to be given this role. I notice this in my child and his friends.



- a
Our principal definitely make the children a priority and is a leader who has greatly improved our school. Unfortunately some of our parents don't like a leader who has the courage to tell them "No".




- a
The School and Teachers are great! My daughter has learned so much and has thrived and we are okay with the changes. But as far as the principal, she is very, very rude and disrespectful. Hard to imagine a school run by a person who doesn't practice what she preaches. Surprised the Priest has let this go on for so long.



- a
We removed our child from this school for several reasons. The teachers, students, and parents are not warm to newcomers. It may be different for families that have been there since preschool or kindergarten. We found that not only do the children have cliques, and ostracize other children, but the parents do as well. They have very large class sizes and so much homework in the older grades, it s difficult to participate in extracurricular activities. In the short time we were there, 5 teachers left the school, which is a very high turnover for such a small school. In addition, the administration is ineffective when handling bullying situations, and special treatment was given to families with more than one child. It s money over morals here. This was our personal experience, and I hope it helps anyone considering this school.
