Both my children attend SJS and we completely LOVE It!!! The teachers are extremely kind and warm-hearted. My children truly enjoy their classes, their classmates and the faculty and staff. My oldest child made the Honor Roll this year and was recognized for scoring a 95% on her ITBS testing and qualified for DUKE TIPS (Duke Talent Identification Program). I credit these accomplishments to her hard work but also to the dedication of the teachers and the administration. The curriculum is challenging and the classes are very organized. The administration is hands on and has an open door policy. The after care program is fantastic as my children participate in: ballet, arts and craft club, gymnastics club, choir, and science club. After seven years of sending my children to St. Jerome's, I am still thrilled that we made the right decision to bring our children to St Jerome Catholic School. I would recommend St. Jerome's without any hesitation to other parents. The school is having an Open House on Saturday, January 11th, 2014 for prospective families.
St. Jerome's is a wonderful school. It has caring teachers and staff. The diversity of students there also helps the children to learn that we are really more alike then we are different. My 7th and 8th grade teachers were a big inspiration to me and I am forever grateful to them. St. Jerome made me feel like I had a voice for the first time. I went to public school until 6th grade. It got so bad that I couldn't even tell my parents that I was being bullied everyday in the public school. St. Jerome's offers a caring and safe environment where students are able to learn without fear of being ridiculed.
Nurturing environment. Good, Catholic values. Very nice families. However, class size averages over 30 children per class and there is poor communication between teachers and parents.
Honestly? It's ok. I mean yeah. If your looking for a school with a good curriculum, go there, but in terms of heart? Umm not really. I spent two years there as a student and by my second quarter first year, I wanted out. The thing is, no matter how "amazing" the teaching is, they practically forget about you when you leave not graduating! I was there until 7th grade and tried contacting the teachers to "see how it's going". 3 months ago. twice. We even visited the school only to be greeted with a hello, look away, goodbye. "Family" Oriented? yeah right. "Know you by your by your first name"? Sure, for three months. Thats All
Very good school. My goal was to find a safe school that will help to continue and reinforce the ethics that we value at home. A great education is an added bonus. They have surpassed my expectations. The school is small enough that it feels like a family, but large enough that I do not worry about it closing (as our previous school did). In addition there are extra curricular activities, aftercare, spring break camp, and summer camp. The principal is driven to do everything that is necessary to keep this school running well.
love it..kids love it...like a family ....first name basis..and they know you!!! recommended lots of families from other catholic schools and they came and joined my wonderful school and love it.....SJS number 1..go panthers
St. Jerome is an exceptional school. Sister Vivian Gomez is a wonderful principal. My daughter began attending St. Jerome at 3 years of age, she just graduated 8th grade. The education she received at St. Jerome is helpong her to succeed is a challenging high school enviornment. Hats off to the St. Jerome family.
St. Jerome is wonderful. My son excels there. The faculty and staff know, and care about, each and every student. There is so much parental involvement, it's inspiring. Can't say enough about it. Sure, there's room for improvement, but they listen to suggestions for that. There aren't many schools where you can have a voice.
Wonderful academic and nurturing environment. Committed faculty and staff.
St. Jerome is an exceptional school and parish. My daughter has spent three wonderful and fulfilling years here. The staff are so caring, and the kids in every grade are just wonderful. I recommend everyone to send their children here! We are moving out of state this summer, and it will be extremely hard to say goodbye to the exceptional families and staff that make up this wonderful parish and school. God bless all at St. Jerome!
Great principal. My niece goes there and i sometimes help her with her homework. Great teachers also.
Excellent caring staff from the principal on down. Good multi-national cross section of students - my belief being that when different cultures come together it teaches our young people basically we all want to be peaceful and happy in our daily lives. Saint Jerome teaches this valuable underestimated life leason to the student body. In a wonderful Catholic environment.
