The past three years have been terrible. The most recent principal has made this school a wreck. I finally admit that I have to get my kids out of the school. When I saw what other schools are doing and the technology and other teaching tool they have and the quality of teachers at other schools I realized I was doing my kids a disservice by keeping them at St Didacus.



- a
This school is out-dated, out-of-touch and dilapidated. The teachers and principal are disconnected from students, parents and today's educational needs. The principal is almost impossible to reach and in denial that her ship is sinking. Things are so bad students are leaving during the middle of the school year. You know there are serious problems at this school when the principal sends this message home to parents on December 6, 2016: Please note: Parents having any concerns about the school - curriculum, staff, programs; policies, etc. are kindly requested to contact the classroom teachers and/or the principal. The school is aware of a few parents contacting other schools for possible mid-year transfers and parents talking among themselves regarding their concerns. Unfortunately, most of the scuttlebutt (gossip), on the part of a small group of parents, that has been brought to the school's attention is negative in nature. St. Didacus Parish School has a strong reputation of being a great school which it is. As principal, I am available for parents - my door is always open.
