We have been looking into this school. Can anyone expand on the negative reviews below? When teachers offer help because it is necessary, is it because the students are below average or because the teachers are not as skilled? What is the curriculum really like at this school and in what subject areas are the kids not prepared well for when they enter high school?
I'm sad to say, as a parent & educator; I agree with the posts below. Yes, very involved parent community. Teachers offer help after school because its necessary. Amongst Catholic schools probably well rated which doesn't say much. Success depends heavily on the parent and household support.
the school teachers are very involved in the learning of the children. Most of the teachers offer after school help and enrichment. They do this on their own time and there is a very large sense of community and family in this school. We moved from another highly rated Catholic school and couldn't be happier. The principal is a great asset to the school and the rest of the staff follows suit.
My wife and I toured the school, it is overcrowded far too many students in every classroom. Our neighbor recommended it when we moved in. After inquiring with parents from my kids' sports and other local families; we found a fair amount of dissatisfied parents who have left, forced to leave and other who did not find the school prepared their students well for high school. Another family told us there are too many teachers with kids there and they favor their kids over other students. I found this appears to be true. The level they claim to perform at does not add up based on what we saw and heard, unsure of what metrics they utilize. We are NOT impressed with the school, student-teacher ratio and their fake commitment to quality education. It has a "pretense" of a great school but if you do research you will be disappointed.
