All the teachers are helpful and willing to work with parents - whether a child is ill, needs more time for a particular assignment, or learning abilities. Awesome staff, too!



- a
The principal, staff and parents all work together to bring out the best in everyone. There is truly a team spirit and it works!! The principal's door is always open for questions, concerns or suggestions.

Best thing i ever did for my kids was get them outta this school! The principal has taken one of the top schools in the Diocese and run it into the ground. Only three teachers who were there before her remain. She's gone through two bookkeepers in as many years. Close to 20% of the families have left. Parents are to pay up and shut up, heaven forbid you should have a suggestion or a problem. The teachers left are noticeably discontented. Academically, the school went from 1st in Academic Decathlon to 11th. As far as Catholicity, at least one family has left the Catholic Church completely, scandalized by the principal's treatment of them when they brought up a concern about curriculum changes. Enrollment is so low that the principal is offering current families a break on their volunteer requirement if they convince a new family to register. Meanwhile, tuition creeps up and up. For a school with minimal grounds, no air conditioning, no field, no parking, an ancient play structure over a tattered mat, with the kids basically running amok due to insufficient staff supervision, it is a bad bargain. There are plenty of other options!

All three of our kids attended beginning in 2001 and one still does. Our entire experience has been great. Things change, principals and teachers come and go, but St. Didacus has remained a top level educational experience for students, academically and spiritually. Everything at St. Didacus, from the classroom to extra curricular activities, is always well done and always produces excellent results. I would do it all over again without hesitation if I had three more kids....keep it up St. Didacus!

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
I've seen the results in our children! They all exhibit the character traits the school strives to teach.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
When I was in the younger grade, I learned a lot and understood it. Now my little sister doesn't understand very simple math. Even worse, in older grades, they do not teach us enough so we are very confused the next year, putting our future high school choices at risk. Also teachers are mean!

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Not enough homework is given sometimes not even relevant to what we have been taught in class so many students have a hard time with simple tasks.
