St. Ignatius School5

I have 2 kids in this school. My eldest has been in this school since Transition Kinder and he's now going to 6th grade. Never in our 7 years here have we felt that this school is racist nor elitist as other parents said on their reviews. We are not Caucasian Americans nor a wealthy family. Our kids are average kids (in sports or academics) but we are treated equally like any other family in school. FYI, this school has students that are under the tuition fee assistance but you will never know who they are because everybody treats them the same. The only reason we know this is because we have that in our program. True this school is not perfect but we feel safe having our children here.
St. Ignatius has a great faculty and staff that go above and beyond for their students. It starts from the top and works down. They have a great community that want everyone to be included and receive a great education!
Excellent school!! Great values!! Amazing teachers!! Wonderful sports program! Attentive principal!! Vast extra-curricular activities!! We looked at several private schools before sending our 2 children to St. Ignatius. The schools reputation stands for itself. I interviewed the local private high schools before enrolling my children at St. Ignatius and was told St. Ignatius students are always prepared. We are very pleased with the education they are receiving. The sense of community and warm friendly atmosphere is abundant. The students are held to high standards and this is evident in the school work they produce. This school is above the rest on preparing our children for high school. Very high parent involvement which I find enhances the sense of family and community.
I enrolled my child in this school becuse it has a great reputation for its academic standards. I feel that this is true but there were other components of the school we didn't like and were the deciding factors for taking our child out of the school. Most of the parents and children are snobby and have elitist attitudes which totally goes against Catholic teachings, and the kids are very clique-if your kid didn't start with their class from kindergarten, then it is hard to make friends. Differences between children are cruelly pointed out and rarely addressed by staff and administration. These attitudes are uncharacteristic of the christian spirit we were looking for in a school. Parent involvement and sports are a high priority.
