I feel our school gives our children a sense of home away from home. It offers stability, knowledge, and values.
I am very happy with St. Catherine's. One year ago, one of my daughters was failing, having been in another private school in Riverside for the first years of elementary and not getting the help she needs. My other daughter was bored with school. Both are very happy now. Although we are not Catholics, my children have never been treated like they don't 'belong.' Thank you to the staff and teachers of St. Catherine of Alexandria.
The previous principal has been leading the school a bit down, but the new principal is leading the school to recover and improve. Music, Sports (5th and up), Spanish, Student Council (7th and 8th), and Academic Decathlon are some extra curricular activities. The parents are all very supportive. I have been attending all 9 years, and I am happy to be graduating this year.
My child has been attending here since kindergarten. We are very pleased on the academics and the spirituality that the campus fosters. The principal and assistant principal are wonderful and have a great open door policy. I recommend it totally!
This school has been a great disappointment to us and we have had to remove our children this last school year. As a alumni of catholic school I was shocked at the lack of morality and ethical conduct of the staff.The classroom management skills were obsolete and the level of academics was at least a grade level or more below the California State Standards. I think it will take a long time for this school to recover.The image it once had is definitely gone and has been made public by newspaper articles in the local paper this past school year.I do not think that the school can come back from such public scrutiny.
The quality of the school has gone down in the past 3 years. The staff does not have longevity. It is too soon to see if the new principal has had a positive effect on the school community. Although music and Spanish have been added to the curriculum, the quality of many of the academic programs has been diminished.
I had three children who attended SCOA and we were very disappointed in the level of education they recvd. We had to pay for extensive tutoring and help our children catch up. I would think twice before putting my children in this school
Our child has gone since kindergarten to SCA -- the support he receives academically and spiritually is superb! He is far above his peers academically in the public school.
My three kids attend st catherine school. The academic part is average the space for any recreation activities is very limited, but the meetings the fees the fundraiser the requirements are very high
