I must agree with whomever said another Christian value is honesty. The glowing reviews you read below are not spontaneous notes of love from parents who simply can not wait to tell you how much they adore their child's school. These are the principal going to meeting after meeting after meeting saying we NEED more people to post positive reviews to lower the negative comments. Do not believe the lies.
My third child just graduated from St. James this week. 15 years at this wonderful school for our family. We are so blessed to have had a place where our children learned not only math and reading but where they learned how important faith, compassion and kindness are in life. Thank you St. James for all you have done for our family. The teachers and staff at this amazing school have helped form my children into the wonderful people they are today!
We moved from Portland OR where our two children both attended a private catholic school.
I toured 7 schools in San Diego and North county and hands down LOVED St. James Academy the most.
We were welcomed with open arms!
The principal, teachers, and staff genuinely care for every student and family.
The school community is phenomenal!
The academics, sports, and music programs are fantastic.
We have a Kindergartner and Second grader and I can't say enough about how amazing Mrs. Drake and Miss Williams are! They are truly exceptional women and teacher.
St. James Academy is the best decision we made and we look forward to watching our children grow up int the St. James Community and graduating with their awesome classmates!
We chose St. James 10 years ago for our children. The principal and staff are top notch, creative and caring. The academics, Catholic faith and extra curricular activities are also excellent. The community is supportive and truly loving. Our children are well educated, emotionally and spiritually supported here and very happy!!! What more could one ask for?
Amazing community for the kids and the parents. Excellence in academics (I have graduated 2 children who both excelled in high school, fully prepared, well rounded, solid moral and christian foundation in place. SJA goes beyond expectations with first rate music, performing, athletic and art programs...fully rounding out a child. Currently have 3rd grader who is thriving. SJA is a hidden gem that has greatly impacted our children and our family.
Fantastic school with amazing teachers (and fun families). we just returned from the 4th grade class trip where the students learned so much about California history and how it affects both our present and our future. Really pretty amazing place (I wish i could go back to join K-8 :-)).
