There used to be a strong sense of community here about 10 or so years ago. During that time I felt like students learned a lot and the church was really welcoming. It used to be that masses were pretty full on Sundays, but since Fr. Wayne left years ago numbers dropped. Since then a lot of the quality teachers have left, leaving parents with unsatisfied with how their children are being educated. Many of the parents I've seen have left the school within a few years because they don't feel like their voices are being heard. Other than that the curriculum needs to progress. I found that recent graduates didn't know a lot of basic algebra, when compared to other schools like Challenger who learn coding and geometry before they get to high school. It puts students at a disadvantage because parents put them to a private school to get a quality education. They are behind in terms of curriculum.

Students are well behaved and parents are involved, especially when compared to the public elementary and middle school down the street where it's nothing but "settle down class" for eight hours and zero instruction. Graduates are much better prepared for high school, especially when compared to the middle school down the street, who have been taught no math, science, or reading. If you're looking for strict orthodox Catholic teaching, this is not the place. Teachers are just as big of liberals as at public school. Doubt that one staff member at this school knows anything about the actual Catholic teaching on many issues. Also, they need to tighten up their middle school program. Too much shinnanigans. Playing music in class rather than teaching for example. Need orthodox traditional leadership for school to excel. Probably not going to get it. If you're a lib, who doesn't care about your kid learning that obama is wonderful, it's okay to be gay, and that recycling is the most important thing in life, then the school is fine. But, you can get that at public school for free right, so save your money. If you're looking for traditional orthodox Catholic values, then look elsewhere.

This is a great school if you are looking for a sense of community and really nice people. It is stuck in the Dark Ages as far as curriculum and other aspects. Few great teachers and lots of low expectations. To watch its decline has been disappointing.

I am the parent of five children who have all attended St. Felicitas. We have been in the parish school since 1994, when our first child started Kindergarten there. So far, three have graduated from the eighth grade, two to go! The first two went to St. Joseph Notre Dame HS upon graduation and were extremely well prepared. Our third is attending Arroyo HS now, and she is way ahead of all the other students academically. What I like most about this school is that my children are able to grow in their Catholic faith day in and day out, supported by leadership and staff, who are like an extended family.

St. Felicitas is a great school. Both my children attended, one has graduated and is doing well at St. Joseph Notre Dame HS. The other is in the 7th grade and enjoys the enviroment, the students and teachers. The new principal is awesome and is very involved. He even goes to after school events and supports the students by attending cyo events. We are very satisfied.

My niece attended this school last year when she was in 2nd grade. She doesn't go to this school anymore because my brother moved out of the area. When she was there, my brother told me he had no complaints. He said the pastor there was very involved in the school, and that type of passion transferred over to the teachers and students. The school emphasized individualism, acknowledging that each student is different. It taught the students alot about their faith while at the same time focusing on providing a good education. According to my brother, if he had not moved out of the area, he would continue to enroll my niece in this school.

My daughter had attended this school since first grade and it has been excellent. The level of parent involvement is outstanding. They offer spanish classes so the children and learn spnish at an early age. This school is definitely worth the money! Their sports program is awesome too.
