My child has attended here since kindergarten. She is currently in the middle school. She has received a strong education. The teachers and staff have been kind and caring. I would recommend this school highly.

This school is absolutely horrible my son currently attends here and from day one it has been a ongoing nightmare. The principal has no idea how to run the school and doesn't seem to care about none of the children's well being. My child was bullied and all the principal was worried about was teaching a lesson from the bible !!!! The teachers are very cold and callous with no compassion for new students. If you're thinking about sending your child here think twice , spend your money elsewhere as this place Is the worst place to send a child. They do not watch over the children whatsoever or care about the children's safety. No kid should have to put up with the nonsense that goes on in this horrible place. I don't know how this place is still open.....

No one cares at this place, no compassion for new students and no one seems to know how to do their jobs!

My time as a student at this school was quite frankly awful. Because the school was so small there were extremely few classes offered, the place was understaffed, and bullying was common. While I was in middle school I had an extremely hard time passing my classes and more than a few teachers were completely unwilling to help, and the ones that were kind were fired or layed off the year I left. I suppose because the school is a catholic one its to be expected but the views exposed to me about life were outdated and conservative, and in general the place sheltered me from ever becoming ready for the real world.

My child attends middle school. As with every school, there a good an bad teachers. The good middle school teachers are compassionate, attentive to student needs and truly seem to have desire to teach each student at their level and pace. They are helping my child learn to be independent with just the right amount of guidance. The marginal middle school teachers are on some sort of ego trip. They seem to want to make a student and their parent's lives as difficult, and confusing as possible. When you ask for clarification, they take it as an attack on them, they treat you like you're stupid, and play dumb. The nonverbal communication is very clear; they don't want you involved, or want to have any personal impromptu interaction. I get the move toward independence aspect of MS, but to expect that from all students is unrealistic. How about a collaborative effort? I do know my child. I don't get only communicate by email. It's not like they have 5 classes of 100 students each. Middle school is hard enough why make it harder. It's a private school, where's the I'm glad your here, personal side. It's really too bad. That a few bad apples are spoiling the whole bunch.

I taught in a wonderful public school district at a National Blue Ribbon School for years. As a fairly new staff member at Divine Redeemer, I have observed that same quality of education happening in this school. The difference here, with the Catholic tradition, is the added emphasis on community and giving back to those less fortunate. The children help in collecting food for the food pantry, running a carnival for St. Jude s Hospital, raising money for the Empty Stocking fund , Jeans for Genes Cystic Fibrosis fundraiser- the list goes on. All children participate, even the smaller children! Divine Redeemer Catholic School is a family , much like your family, with high academic and behavior expectations, as well as love for each and every child that attends here.

Our daughter is in pre-kindergarten this year and what a great experience. The class has 11 students, an awesome teacher and an aide in the classroom. We were looking for a school that applied various skills needed academically and socially through-out the grades. The students are integrated into the school, they attend mass, and use the "buddy" system that our daughter is looking forward too becoming when she is older. The principle stands outside every morning (rain,snow,or shine) and greets every child by their first name- outstanding! The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and full of enrichment. We cannot praise enough of how this school has made our daughter's education value priceless.

My daughter is in pre-kindergarten this year and we have been having a wonderful experience. The pre-k class is quite small (only 13 children) and they have a teacher and an aide in the classroom. It is a lot more academic than what many of my friends are experiencing with their pre-k's, but if that's what we were looking for so we're very satisfied. Also, it has a very elementary school feel. The pre-k kids are fully integrated into the school, they attend mass, they have assigned older "buddies," etc. It reminds me of what kindergarten was like when I was a child.

Divine Reedemer is a great school with a great community of parents. My child has greatly excelled at Divine Redeemer and the teachers have always done what is in the best interest of my child. Start the day with prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. It is a great atmosphere for children.

My child had a horrible experience at Divine Redeemer. Multiple teachers in the first semester. My child was not taught to her ability and became bored and acted up. Discipline was not always appropriate and my child was made to believe that she was bad. I pulled her out mid year. With a new school came an immediate improvement in behavior and she was excited about learning again. I regret not removing her sooner.
