I don't really care for the parents are forced to volunteer. I think maybe they should volunteer but as many hours as they make you is a bit ridiculous. I have a younger child who is not in school yet and I don't have a babysitter so it is hard to find time to go and volunteer as much as they make you. I also find that a bunch of parents are really stuck up and it seems like every week not only do I have to pay for my child's education here, but they are asking for money for something every week it seems like... The teachers are okay, I really like my child's teacher's aid a lot more though. She seems more caring and nurturing.

No centralized leadership. Current principal absolutely does not place the students' needs as a priority. Teachers do their own thing. Many of them lost their love of teaching a long time ago. No other choice for Catholic education in town so forced to attend a wannabe school. Parents are forced to volunteer or must pay an hourly rate back to the school. Their is no spirit of giving by the volunteers because they are "required" to serve.

Great, nurturing, positive, Christ centered learning environment! My family has done the public school thing. My children were not challenged. Here they are challenged not only in academics, but to be better people, of high moral value. We teach that at home and are fortunate enough to be in a school where our morals are mirrored.

My two children graduated from this school, attending from K-8. I believe they had an exceptional education. In high school they were far ahead of their classmates in most areas, especially Math, Science, and research. Above that, their Catholic education helped them maintain their high moral standards. Principals have changed twice over the past few years which has put the school in transitition, some of it rocky. A sincere bond with the whole school is needed. The long-term dedicated teachers are what make the school a success. They deserve praise for working with little funding but with great heart for their students and families.

Our oldest son has been at Cathdral Parish School for 3 years, and our middle child will be in kindergarten there next year. We could not have wished for a better school experience. Students are encouraged by first-class, caring educators to strive for excellence in both academics as well as in their personal character. The school welcomes parents' involvement with frequent and open communication between parents and teachers as well as a wide array of volunteer opportunities. We love our CPS family!

CPS is an excellent school as well as very organized. We have had a great experience, We are going on our third year. It is a phenominal school yet as well as I would not recommend any other school In St. Augustine ever. CPS has a very high standard staff as well as an excellent Office Manager, as well as a great principle. Marianne is phenominal as well as all of the other main office staff! We all consider them a family! The teacher's are more then over qualified! All of them. I would highly refer this school to everyone. The after school program is above all stars! No one ever has to worry about there children being safe especially for after school hours. We would give this school 5 stars and way above! There would be no other way!

It is a beautiful school nestled in the old downtown of St. Augustine, Fl, the oldest city in our nation. The school is surrounded by, and part of, our nations history. Tourists meander by daily. It has a wonderful atmosphere that is home to many nice families. However, because of the school's age, we need a new playground.

CPS maintains a strong Catholic heritage and values which are a part of their daily life. It is a National Blue Ribbon School where student can excel with excellent and caring teachers. The school is a family community and builds a strong, lasting bond with its families, students, and faculty. CPS still has Art, Spanish, Music, PE, Library and Computers.

We moved to St. Augustine 5 years ago and found a wonderful school in CPS. The administration and teachers are top-notch. A strong education with christian values give students a well-rounded experience in school and well as great preparation for the wordly challenges that face them. Parental involvement is strong with a very active PTO that supports the school. We highly recommend this school.

My husband and I both attended CPS as well as our brothers and sisters. We all received an excellent education. My daughters both attended CPS and both have graduated from college, one on the Presidents list at the University of Florida and one from Flagler College on the Deans list. I believe the basics at CPS are why my children has accomplished so much with their educational experience. CPS has loving and caring staff that will go the extra mile for your student. I cannot think of anywhere that my children would have received a better educlation. I now look forward to the day that my granddaughter will attend CPS. M. Bond

I have very little good to say about this school other than the parents are involved. The school portrays itself as homey and nuturing but is anything but this The principle never knew my kids names nor asked/ tried to learn their names. The children were bullies and very materialistic. They do wear uniforms but found other things to be into. They had a few good teachers ( 3rd grade). My kids went here for 5 long years.There is a reason the enrollment at this school has not increased over the years.

I have nothing good to say about this small private school. The kids were mainly bullies, education geared toward middle achieving students. The homework load was overwhelming and mostly busy work. My kids went here for 5 year and the principle never made an attempt to learn my name or the students. The parents are involved and the third grade teachers are genuine.

If you are thinking of moving to the state of Florida and need to preview a school before making a decision, this school and it's staff are the most friendly and accommodating individuals.From the first phone call, the office staff is welcoming and informative.I toured the school with an extremely helpful parent of three who had transferred to the area and could answer any concern I had. First impressions are everything.At first glance the children look happy while learning. All the teachers took time to chat with us and make my sixth grader feel more confortable.The school is small and charming however a look at the computer lab shows technology that is very up to date.If you are looking for a structured learning environment that has not lost it's warmth, you should defiantly look into Cathedral Parish School.

Together my children have 14 yrs at this school, from elementary up. School has math issues, not keeping up with public schools in math, but overall a high level of parental involvement and a well disciplined group of children. Needs to improve lunch menu and lighten the load of homework and backpacks. If you are concerned about what your children will see in their peers behavior, this could be a good place for them to go.
