I do not like this school one bit, some of the teachers are terrible

Posted February 4, 2008

The principal and guidance counselor maintain an Open Door policy and are very easy to access. The academics is superb as are the teachers. The school communicates with the parents via personnal contact, Ed-line, e-mail and Honeywell Alert. This year, the school was selected as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.

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.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
