i used to be a student at this school, and I can actually say, without pause that this school has emotionally scarred me for life. The teachers can usually be trusted to not actually teach you a single thing, the school is dirty all the time, and it did not prepare me at all for the strains of high school. I will not name names, but many teachers verbally abused the students, and if you try to ask a higher authority to tell them to stop, they take the teachers side. If you care at all about how your child develops and want them to have a healthy state of mind, do not send them to st james.
Ilove the school but wish some teachers got Master's degree.please how can you be a teacher these days without one. Too much discipline. Too many old teachers "who" should retire.
Both of my children go to this school. I am very happy with it. They show they care for each and every student. The teachers are great and the principal listens to everyone.
This school has taught my children unity and love and caring attitudes towards the children . I am very happy with this school and so are my children.
St. James is the best place my son could ever be...we feel it is an extension of our family. Great, loving people who care about the children's academic, physical, and spiritual growth!!!
I cannot say enough about St. James School! My children are in a safe, loving environment where they are learning at a pace beyond my expectations. The individual attention provided by the teachers and staff is something that we did not experience in the public schools, and we could not be happier at St. James. The school community is truly one of gracious caring and enthusiasm. This was absolutely the right decision for our family - come take a look - you won't be sorry!
My son had an amazing academnic/social/spiritual experience at St. James. He was fully prepared to succeeed in High School. He remains close friends with most of his classmates and all of them are succeeding and excelling. Year after year, the names on the High School honor rolls are chock full of graduates. St. James is not a 'drop-off' school. Parents are required to be involved and though tuition goes up each year, there are programs in place so that parents may 'buy down' or reduce their tuition. Paying for St. James was the greatest investment and sacrifice I made for my child. The teachers, parents and students are, with few exceptions, are excellent, caring and committed. You will get what you put into this school and everyone gives 110 percent!
St.James is such a wonderful school for a kid to go to. There are so many great teachers and students. There is a warm glow when you walk into anyone of the classes. I am a seventh grade student and I would know. The teachers are so understanding with you and help you after school. They always tell us how important we are and that we hold some of the secrets to the future Earth life. It makes us feel really loved. When I have a son or daughter, I am definetly sending them to St.James. -Julianne Hefferon
Well I am a student at St.James and I enjoy it very much. Everyone is so nice and comforting. There are plenty of afterschool activities to go to. Parents really get involved and is a good way for them to socialize. The teachers are fantastic and help you whenever you dont get something or are in trouble. They are always there. I feel so safe in it and happy to be there. Every morning when I come into school, people are greeting me and always smiling. Everyone and everything has such positive enrgy. It makes you feel good and warm inside. I am so happy to at St.James. I would never go to a different school,
Wanting to join a 'catholic' school I am disgusted by the phoniness, clicks, and so on. Will greatly be considering public school for next year. Curriculum o.k. but way too much pressure put on the parents both academically and financially. It is simply absurd.
