My child have attended this school for the past 4 years. They have constantly low numbers in the classes, so students benefit from lots of teacher attention. Also they split up the kids according to ability levels for math and reading. So kids are always being challenged or getting the added help they need. A hidden gem in the valley!
We are blessed to ba a part of this school family. The faculty and staff are wonderfuly dedicated teachers who take the time needed with each student to ensure that they recieve the best education possible.
Ever since ive been in this school ive been miserable. THE BULLYING NEEDS TO STOP. The faculty allows foul play, and all forms of bullying to commence during school hours alone. Please take into account that ive been with this school since kindergarten, which is a mere 8 years of dedication, donations, generosity, and so much more and for that devotion of my family's time, i get nothing but a little brush whenever i try to confront the faculty about serious matters. This includes student rights, educational matters, and matters based upon the fact that bullying in any form is just sinful and should be prohibeted, especially if such matters are performed in front of an adults eyes. You might tell by the way im writing this review that the school has a generally good educational base. But the fact of the matter is that most of the education that we are taught is literally taught through arts and crafts and not as much books and notes. Serious improvements need to be made at this school!
Most of the teacher's appear dedicated and the turn over rate is low. Kids receive the basic reading, writing and math. School is also very safe. On the negative side however, the school needs a major revamping as it looks run down and there is no full or part time janitor to keep the school clean. Not sure what is going on with the school budget or where the money goes. Additionally, school needs a new principal with more energy and fresh ideas. I am certain the school can tap into the archdiocese for help with projects that could improve the school so not sure why administration has not looked into this. Lastly, the school needs to keep up with technology by providing kids with tablets for homework/reading and also by keeping website current. Oh and parents and students being able to log in to check progress/assignments.
What a fantastic place for children to grow and learn. St. Bridget of Sweden is a small school where everyone feels like family. The students, faculty and staff are all friendly and respectful. They pride themselves in being a place where kids are encouraged to reach a little bit further all the time. The principal is a true gift to the school. He has been there for dozens of years and is always looking out for all of the kids, faculty and parents. There are many, many former students who make it a point to bring their children to this school so they can have the same high quality education that they had. We are so blessed that we have our children at SBS!
Awful school. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. I was beaten and bullied. I was too scared to tell anyone what happened and my mother saw bruises on me and immediately went to the school -- my teacher told my mother I had been crying every day in class and didn't even think to call my mother and tell her what had been going on, The principle couldn't care less. I would NEVER EVER send a child here. It is truly a god-less place with awful people running the school. Do NOT send your child here. Mean kids and mean teachers.
