After attending St. James School from preschool through eighth grade, my daughter was well-prepared for the rigors of the honors and AP courses at East Catholic High School. The faith-filled, caring, yet structured environment was provided by wonderful teachers who followed a curriculum which easily flowed into the high school level. This helped make for a happy and thriving childhood for my daughter. I marveled at how they covered so much material in addition to teaching the children about their faith, and the students tested well above grade level! Having two classrooms per grade and mixing the rosters was important in providing opportunities for new or renewed friendships through the years, and I loved how the kids came from all walks of life. My daughter s class has now scattered across the country, attending Notre Dame, Fordham, Providence College, Boston College, Siena, Villanova, Holy Cross, UConn, Clemson, Syracuse U. and Lehigh, just to name a few. The foundation for their success was laid at St. James School, and I will always be grateful to the principal, Mrs. Kanute, and all of the wonderful teachers.
