St. B is a good school in transition to becoming a great school. Parent involvement is needed to help admin reach goals. School has small class sizes (1 each grade) and family feel. The children & proactive parents are known by the teachers/staff by their first name. My child excelled in primary w/good grades/high test scores. In middle school we re getting adjusted. Through the years we had a problem w/only 1 teacher & was handled by admin. In middle school there are new teachers & problems with retention. We voiced our concerns and were advised issues are being addressed. As an educator, I know how hard it s to find capable/compassionate teachers. We r proactive in speaking directly with teachers & admin & our concerns were met w/respect & promptly addressed. We feel children are in loving/caring environment. Curriculum is good but could use a lift. Recent changes in school communication w/phone calls, emails, & newsletter keep us updated. Fundraising a must. We d love to expand campus with a gym/cafeteria. School is very clean & fence adds layer of security. School lunch was outsourced & could be better. Payment for lunch is good w/ability to pay/track purchases online.

My child has been a student at St. Bernadette for 8 years. Since the new principal, Mrs. Wagner has taken over 1.5 years ago, the school has gone down. She doesn't care about the children and could care less about the parents concerns and complaints. New teachers hired are not up to par. The priest, Father Dalton, is very intimidating and most students are afraid of him. The education that my child has received this school year is not worth the cost of tuition. If you are conserving St. Bernadette, look for another Catholic school.

Love this school. My wife and I took our time choosing a school where we will feel that our kids will be safe and will receive a great education. Our kids are in Kindergarten and we couldn't be happier with the results of this school year. They are in an accelerated reading program, which is very demanding, but it has incredible results. Their teacher, Mrs. Novoa is very pleasant and approachable. Parents have to stay very much involved which to us is a huge plus. Only one class per grade which is great in the sense that you know your child is receiving the required attention that he or she need to succeed. Couldn't be Happier with St. Bernadette.

My child has attended this school for 5 years. I chose this school because it is small.. only one class per grade. I like that everyone knows my child my name and she is not a number. The school is not perfect. There are positives and negatives. I feel my child is safe at this school and is getting a decent education. The priest is intimidating to the children and isn't approachable. The principal is accessible and easy to talk to. There is favoritism to select affluent families. Most of the teachers are good as in other schools.

Our daughter has been going to St. Bernadette since kinder. and is in 2nd grade now. I feel the school is a great place for childern. My only problem is discriminated by teahcer aide. Overall she is getting a great education from St. Bernadette. Yes, Father Dalton is involved with the day to day operations. He makes should they are doing what they need to be doing. So, if you want your child to learn, have them come to St. Bernadette.

Our daughter has been going to St. Bernadette since kinder. and is in 3rd grade now. I feel the school is a great place for childern. My only problem is that each year we have to pay more and more. Plus, the hours we have to do. Overall she is getting a great education from St. Bernadette. Yes, Father Dalton is involved with the day to day operations, but isn't that why you send you child to private school. He makes should they are doing what they need to be doing. So, if you want your child to learn, have them come to St. Bernadette. Take care and God Bless. SIC

As a parent whose children attended this school for 4 years I have to say good and bad things about it. The curriculum is by far the worst and so far behind Florida State Standards. The Priest is very intimidating to the children and this is not the atmosphere I wanted. The small family envrionment was a plus We made the choice to leave because the price of tuition was not worth the education being received.

My children have been at the school for 11 years and I still love it. Like all schools, nothing is perfect, but I know that my children are loved and cared for. I leave them every day knowing that they are safe. If I have a problem, I let them know and they listen to me. The teachers care and are there to help. I have even called a teacher on the weekend just to tutor my children. I can not say enough.

My son has been going here for 6 years now and he hates, I'm not a big fan of the school but i think there needs to be many changes such as better lunch, and more students there are simply not enough students

Academically out of the loop in respect to public and/or other private schools and their curriculum. Father Dalto is totally too involved in the day to day operation of the school and thus poor decisions are made. A high amount of favoritism among select families. A sad example of christianity.

My child began at St. Bernadette since 1st grade and has excelled academically, athletically and socially. The small environment is great. I highly recommend this school.

My kids started at St. Bernadette during the 2007 school year. We all love the school & the Church. Father Dalton has a great spirit and keeps a close eye on the kids at all times.

I had been a student at St. Bernadette for 11 years, I was glad to leave. It wasn't a very bad expeirence nor was it great. Overall the school was average, I had made friends back then and that is the most likely reason that I would rate the school average. Teachers have been accused of being 'un-fair' but they weren't all that bad.

I have been in St.Bernadette for the last 8 years and it has been an excellent experience. I have worked very closely with teachers, parents and staff. St.Bernadette has been a family to me and my kids.

My daughter has only been at St. Bernadette's for this academic year. Prior to enrolling at this school, we researched and visited various other schools in the area. After considering the friendliness and accessability of the school staff as well as the curriculum and the cleanliness and apparent safety of the school, I chose St. Bernadette. From the beginning, my family has been made to feel 'at home' and my daughter loves the school, staff, and classmates. Although only at this school for less than a year, many faculty, staff, and parents know my family (as individuals and not just as a student number). We have enjoyed various social events and have established wonderful relationships with other school families. I believe this school is first-class in the areas of faculty and staff, academics, discipline, religious education, and socialization opportunities.

My two children have been attending this school for four years. The faculty is extremely caring and dedicated. Everyone treats the children as if they were their own. Standards and expectations are high with children being taught a great deal not only academically, but also in terms of discipline and spirituality. The school is an extended close knit family. Students love to go to school everyday. They feel safe and part of a very special institution.

This is a very close knit school. There is only 1 class for every grade. Everyone knows you and your child by name, not a number. The teachers are strict but fair. I like the school very much, all 2 of my 3 children are currently attending and the oldest has gone to high school.
