I have no regret what so ever, my daughter is been in St. David since Kindergarten and now she is in 8th grade all ready for High School. Nothing is perfect is this world and yes, there might be some things they should change like hiring younger teachers. But over roll is an excellent school, the discipline they impart to the kids is amazing and communication with teachers is great.

Avoid this school. I took my son out last year and wished i had done it much earlier. My spouse and i kept him at this school for five years hoping things would get better but they didn't. Specifically the teachers didn't get any better. Especially in the lower grades (pre-k 3) for example, but other grades too you will find teachers who are cold and distant towards children and parents. This comes across during parent/teacher conferences, one on one meetings, complaints from my son, and other children as well as other parents. I know complaints have been filed by many and i've heard some of these "experienced" teachers wete going to have their employment terminated but it hasn't happened.Hence,my our decision to remove our child. If the principal wants student enrollmentvto rise

My son has attended St. David's for the last 4 years. St. David's has not only helped him grow academically, but also spiritually. It's not just a school, it's a family! He is learning skills at St. David's that will help mold him not only as a good student, but as a good human being. My son loves school and says that he cannot imagine going anywhere else. The local public school has 9 classes per grade, so your child is a number not a person. At St. David's your child is part of a family and is known as an individual not a number. We also love both priests- Father O'Reily and Father Naughton.

I like the school personally because it is a safe and religous environment to be putting your child(ren) into and I 100% approve and I send my children there! Plus also I like the preist their Father O'Reilly. He is very kind and loves the boys and girls of all ages! And he has a couple of mascots, his dogs! They are so cute!

The teachers at this school do not communicate with each other about student needs. If your child has any special learning needs you will need to coordinate everything. The school's teachers are basically facilitators, not educators.

The Best, both my children have attened St. Davids My daugher is now in 8th and my son graduated 2 year ago. My son was very well prepared for HS and now has a 3.8 GPA. The enviroment is family, and the teachers and administrators are open and caring. THis school has been a blessing spiritually and academically. 11 years with St. Davids and I never had one problem, it has been a wonderful experience. A fantastic learning enviroment. Really a blessing

This school has been a disappointment. It is fine for the younger kids, but the 8th grade doesn't have quality academic programs available. They are at a disadvantage when they go to high school.

This school is the worst. The uniforms are bad. The academic section is bad. You are better of in a public school. The teachers are nice and so are the principle but it can be a good school!

I had 2 children attend St Davids with a 3rd beginning there now. It is a structured yet loving environment in which the principals of charity and kindness are put into everyday experiences-kids there are happy and do very well academically in high school. The faculty is approachable and parent involvement is encouraged. Curriculum is challenging if child capable. School events are fun and highly anticipated by children. Math program perhaps is weaker than other departments. I could send my 3rd one to any school but would only choose St David's. Significant number of national merit finalists(later in high school)graduated from St David's.

This is a wonderful school. My daughter was struggling in 5th grde at a public school, I found st davids and the teachers dedicated themselves to raising my daughters grades as well as her self confidence. Parent involvement is huge. A very loving and structured enviorment.

When I graduated from St David and entered high school, I was totally unprepared. All my public school friends were far more advanced and started off in high school with more advanced courses. I was just as smart, but St. David didn't give me the opportunity to excel in high school. The workload is also a joke, and there's very little academic discipline amongst the students.

Having come from a critically overcrowded public elementary school, this school is a breath of fresh air. Each grade has 2 classes as opposed to the 9 classes in our public school. I found the curriculum to be more challenging than my children's public school. Also, it was quite a relief not to have my children rehearsing to take a state test all year. Children here are tested once in the beginning of the school year. This frees up the remainder of the year for fun, hands on learning.
