All the school its great and amazing teachers and staff but the only big concern is that the security lady with blonde hair is very rude and doesnt have manners at all calling people bad names and something rude i fell very dissapointed and i think of children being at a catholic school this isnt what we think is right way to talk to the parents!

This is my first year at St. Agatha, as a PreK mom. I can truly say the school has been amazing so far. The teachers are so wonderful and loving. The staff and administration are great and truly show dedication to their profession daily. The way the school is run is just admiring. I look forward to many memories at this wonderful school!

As I get ready to wrap up another year here at St.Agatha school I found it necessary to take some time and share some of my feelings. if you are in search for placement I highly recommend you visit our school, I have been there for 6+ years and again was reminded what a great decision to place my youngest in PK3 as I did with my oldest. I could not say enough about the dynamic duo (Mrs.Diaz and Mrs.Betty) though their patience and love for what they do my daughter that came from a "home with grandma" setting in more than ready for PK4. The Administration I could not say enough about, from day one I have always been impressed by the fact that our Principal Mrs.Glass is always in the front to greet our children and give them and the parents a warm welcome. I am a happy SAS parent looking forward to many years ahead.

Great Experience!!! As my child get's ready to close her chapter in PK3, I'd like to share that although I am happy to see how much she has learned and therefore is well-prepared for other challenges... it is bittersweet! I feel that I was blessed by both, her PK3 teacher and Aide. I could not say enough about these two ladies... they are short for AMAZING and truly have " BIG hearts filled with love for little minds"... we will miss them!

Many years ago a neighbor introduced us to St. Agatha and since then the school and the parish have become part of our family. My children now grown reflect that their time at St. Agatha was incredible. They've mentioned that they were nurtured and received a great education that have led them with God's guidance to become wonderful, caring individuals both in their profession and personal lives. We would recommend St. Agatha to anyone who wants to place their children in a caring, nurturing, catholic environment where they will learn and be able to transition and succeed in high school and beyond. May God continue blessing the teachers, administration, and staff with that relentless dedication to their profession to continue teaching His children.

I spent 10 years at St. Agatha and it was an amazing experience! The faculty/staff are very helpful and loving people. The teachers are amazing! The principal is great and is always eager to make sure we are happy! I had an amazing experience and gained friendships that I will keep for a lifetime!!!

Some of the negative reviews about this school are quite difficult to comprehend and take seriously. Each of my kids attended this school for 10 years so we have a truly full experience to draw from...and we can attest that it has been great for a majority of that time. Most teachers were very friendly...our kids received lots of attention and got a very good education which prepared them well for good private high schools...which they easily got into. A big part of St. Agatha's success is the principal, Mrs. Glass, who puts a very high emphasis on academics. She chooses her teachers carefully and presses the students to do well. She can be very strict and imposing...but isn't that what we want in our principals? Especially when we choose a private school for our kids? Yes, we want someone who takes control and is not afraid to make difficult decisions...even when it isn't the popular one. Our experience was very positive and I confidently recommend St. Agatha.

My experience in St. Agatha has been amazing!!! Both my children have attended the school since PK4 and have had nothing more than a beautiful experience. They have made long lasting memories that they will treasure forever. The teachers are very caring and loving with the children. The principal, Mrs. Glass, has always been very nice and has known how to run the school in a very successful way. She doesn't cave in to unruly parents and stands her ground firmly when making decisions that benefit the school. Academically, it's very good, my daughter entered high school very prepared and her transition was very easy. I think of St. Agatha as my second home, met lots of great families and will always keep St. Agatha very close to my heart.

After visiting several area schools, we finally felt at home at St. Agatha. Warm staff, amazing teachers, large classrooms and a top notch education. Students are taught to respect themselves and each other. Strong moral/religious education and strong academics. Students easily transition into high-school and excel. Best choice! Highly recommend.

Excellent School! My family s experience with St. Agatha has been wonderful. St Agatha is an excellent school with a caring supportive staff that encourages and nurtures an environment conducive to learning. There are no words to describe how pleased I am with the efforts of all the teachers and staff with respect to their education, well being and enthusiam towards providing the best possible education for my children. This is all driven by the dynamic administrative team that support the teachers' efforts. The administrative staff and teachers are involved, caring, and appropriately demanding.

Incredible experience! My three children attended St. Agatha from Pk3 thru 8th grade. My husband and I have very fond memories in all our years there. While there my oldest child was discovered to have a learning disability and with the constant help from ALL the faculty, staff and administration; today my child attends a prestigious university. My other two children have been attending great Catholic high schools and my middle child has been accepted into seven universities. My husband and I truly believe that the foundation that St. Agatha gave our children was the key for their brighter future. St. Agatha helped us plant the seed for them to follow our Catholic values. It not only starts at home, you enhance your teachings and moral values with the help of a great school environment and church community. We were very blessed!

I am a frist year parent and have an amazing experience! My daughters teacher is wonderful, she is knowledgeable and very loving to my child and the rest of the students. She is helpful in every way possible when it comes to her educational needs. I have had a postive experience with the office staff and admiistration. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a faith based education for their child. I have been in another parochial school and it has not compared to my experience here. Awesome!

Excellent school with quality education, catholic morals, and excellent teachers/principal! As a parent to three children, I could never consider putting my child anywhere else. My first daughter, who is an alumni (was there from PK to 8th grade), has moved on to a top Catholic high school in which she has further excelled by being placed in their accelerated/advanced program. She was taking dual enrollment/college and AP classes her Freshman year and managed it with great ease due to the excellent education and work ethic that she received in St. Agatha. She finished the year with a 4.9 and is continuing to excel in her sophomore year. My second daughter is currently at St. Agatha and is excelling as well. She loves her school, her teachers, and her friends. When the decision came as to where my third daughter would be going as she starts PK next year, it was one of the easiest decisions I have ever made. Knowing first hand that my daughter would have all the tools she would need to be successful in high school and for the rest of her life, we quickly enrolled her in St. Agatha. Why look anywhere else when you have everything here? I highly recommend the school to anyone.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! St. Agatha is such an awesome place for kids to learn. The admin, teachers, and parents so obviously care about the kids. The environment is always warm and welcoming, as soon as you walk in the principal, assistant principal, and/or pastor are always there to greet you and your kids. They have high standards for learning and believe all can achieve. I was always particularly touched at the inclusion of students with special needs at this school. It is so heart-warming to see students with special needs receiving Communion and other sacraments with their peers. It is something you will not find in any other Catholic school in the area. Their special education program rocks! As a member of the community, this school is a true symbol of what raising kids with a kind and compassionate Catholic heart should be.

It's truly a shame that this forum is used by disgruntled parents to launch attacks at my school. Clearly, the parents that are actually making a difference and are involved with their children on a daily basis are too busy to sit here and rage on. St. Agatha is a top notch school. If you're looking for a solid education for your child coupled with a foundation based on strong catholic values, then this is the place for you. As for Extra-curricular activities, anyone sitting at our monthly masses can hear for themselves how blessed we are by our amazing choir, but you would actually have to be there to experience it. Before deciding on a school, please call the main office, take a tour, and see for yourself. You will not regret it.

St. Agatha is not only a wonderful school, it also provides students & parents a home away from home. The community at St. Agatha allows you to build bonds that will last a lifetime. I am an alumni of St. Agatha & do not know how I could be where I am today if it wasn't for the support of the St. Agatha community. The faculty truly cares for the students & their families. St. Agatha is also a reasonably priced private, Catholic institution doing it's best to not only educate its students but to also instill good, Catholic values. I grew up at St. Agatha & hope one day that my children will get to do the same.

St. Agatha School offers committed teachers and staff, lead by a committed Principal. The school is accredited by the Florida Catholic Conference, therefore the Principal and teachers are fully qualified professional educators. I know that my child is in a school that provides academic excellence, while providing a FAITHFUL & NOURISHING environment with fair and equitable discipline. Everyone from the office staff to parents are welcoming and helpful. In addition, the teachers stay each year and have their own kids in the school. I am happy to have my child at a school that the Principal greets parents and students EVERY day at the door. I am fully confident in this Catholic school.

My daughter goes to Prek-3. She started two days ago and I'm struggling with the rules for the little ones. All children are expected to be in the classroom by 8am, otherwise they are considered late and need to be walked to the classroom by a staff member that waits for late-arrivers by the main office. I demanded to walk her to the classroom because it was only her second day. They agreed, but emphasized that for safety reasons parents were not allowed to talk by the hallways after 8am. The little ones would come up to us to say hi and the teacher insisted they went back to their sits. The learning environment didn't feel very welcoming for the kids. They seem to emphasize rules and discipline much more over learning through exploration and play, as well as socialization. I don't know much about the Pre-K education, but I have heard positive things about education for the older children. I have to admit that I am a bit resentful about my choice of taking her there. I wish I had done more research about it.

Our daughter just graduated from Middle School at St. Agatha and we can only say that we are soooo glad we chose this school for her Middle School Years. The only regret we have is not putting her here since Elementary. Children respect each other and see each other as a Family. We had a great experience and our daughter was truly happy. The academics here are very strong and it has a safe environment. The Principal, Administration and Teachers show their love for the children. Our daughter received such a great education that she was accepted to a Top Elite high school. If you want a safe environment and a great education , don't hesitate to visit this school. There's always two sides to stories so don't believe all the negativity people write on these posts. Sometimes it's from people that don't even go to this school.

Not sure what school the parents below had their children at but it certainly wasn't St. Agatha. The principal at this school is FAIR and the rules here apply to everyone, no exceptions. If you're looking for an easy way out or for the rules to bend in your favor, then you're in the wrong place. Strong Academics, modern technology, 20 kids/classroom with teacher and aide. Students conduct themselves respectfully and treat others with respect. Any situations that I have personally encountered have been handled professionally. Highly recommend! Your child will graduate with an excellent education,school is top 5 in the Archdiocese, and will easily transition into any of the local high schools with a solid foundation/background/education received at St. Agatha.

The school has good teachers and the overall school dicipline is good. The students are well behaved, I feel that the Principal needs to allow all the parents and their comments to be heard instead of just a "click" of parets" who are always involved in all. There are many parents that are not wealthy and can not contribute to the school in money or time due to having to work to have their child there..I feel that onle certain parents are heard and others are discarded. The Principal favors centain parents. we are all equal and our children should be trated equally.

I would consider sending your money elsewhere. There are plenty of other schools that your children would probably benefit from. The class size is a lot bigger than a public school. 30 students to one teacher in some classes is outrageous! The administration does not discipline their children fairly. Ask those important questions prior to enrolling. Some teachers are really good and are there for the children. I agree with other parents that the principal is intimating to EVERYONE including her teachers. Sad to say but look at other schools.

My daughter attended kindergarten at St. Agatha 3 years ago. The same teachers and principal are still there, so I feel I can write this review. While my child was there, I was most impressed by the discipline at the school. Children of all ages were encouraged to use good manners and speak to adults in a loud and respectful manner. The private school my daughter is in now doesn't stress those very important things. I found the principal to be nice, although I do agree with someone's observation that it is hard to break into the established cliques that parents have formed. In kindergarten, academics were very strong.

There is nothing special about St. Agatha School and in fact, public schools are far superior. The teaching methodology is from the dark ages. Class sizes are large and many, many students do not get the support they need. Many teachers are there because they were not hired by systems paying significantly higher salaries. Many students leave after bad experiences. As many parents will attest, the Principal intimidates her students, staff, AND parents, even to the point of yelling at them should they disagree with her. This is about the most un-Christian environment I have ever been in and am glad we will be leaving the school.

This will be my last year here at St. Agatha. There are both good and bad. In middle school acedemics I can say they excel in math, science, english, religion, and literature. The acedemics here are good but what I love about St. Agatha is the atmosphere. The principal isn't the nicest but we deal with it. The great thing is the moment you walk in you feel like your in cofortable place just like home. I have seen in the past years that all the kids come in and say hi to there former teachers several times a month. You grow a connection to the school and the people in it. It is my 8th grade year and it is packed with more events that you can imagine. It is a little expensive but all woth it.

The teaching at the school is good. Please ntoe that good does not mean excellent - they do not have programs for advanced or gifted children. Additionally, the administration is totally oblivious to parent concerns or input - unless it is money! Additionally, the student/teacher ratio is not proportionate to the public schools and it makes me think that the kids are hurt by this fact. Not certain I am getting my money's worth!

Open door policy ??!! which door is this ?? I feel completely ingnored by the principal when I try to communicate problems my child is having with the teacher, after I have already tried solving it with the teacher. I have been at the school for 2 years and will be leaving soon. In the 2 years I was there I never felt part of the school , I noticed all the time they only have the same parents participating in all the activities, they are not welcoming to new parents. As far as academics , it is a good school, better than some public schools I would say, but if your child is one that studies hard you might as well take it to public school for academics, where they offer much more programs.

it's ok, i guess... there are good teachers, but they kinda give you a lot of homework... they have a great algebra class. Sometimes, it overwhelms kids that there are so many activities to be involved with. The Principal, Mrs. Glass is super nice and funny. But i think that there should be more dicipline because kids are bringing things they are not supposed to bring... but overall it is a great school, and since im graduating this year, i know that it will be fun and safe!
