St John Vianney Catholic School 1

This school has gone downhill since the current principal has taken over. Student accomplishments are belittled and largely ignored. Public schools are at least a grade level ahead. I know this from unhappy families who leave left this school is droves over the past 3 years. And also from my own kids friends who are in public school. Don't believe the IB hype like I did. You won't find out it means nothing until you are in middle school and it's too late to back out! The environment involves your kids being bullied by staff and they are all the most uncaring bunch of people I have ever met in education. I know this from their behavior and from a friend of mine who interned at that school. Please do not send your children here. This is not a Christian environment. There is no discipline plan it is all about punishment and humiliation of children. Trust me. There are other schools. If I had it to do over I would never subject a child to this place.

Children at thus school are at least a grade level behind. I have spoken to several families that have left this school and gone to public schools and all of these children were at least a grade level behind. There is one advanced math class. They had 3 different teachers this year and they are 5 chapters behind the regular public school pace. Teachers brag about the fact that they use the same book report format for 28 years. They have iPads that were donated and the kids are not allowed to use them. I have never seen any technology work being done. There is no science lab, microscopes, nothing. Just books and a teacher who stands in front of a class like it's 1958.

Amount of homework: Not enough

My child NEVER has homework. If it comes home it tales.10 minutes. Mostly I hear that the homework was done in school during class time because teachers are so unobservant that they don't even notice.

An entire class boycotted a pep rally. What does that tell you? There is no school spirit here. Mostly that is due to the fact that the principal does not even bother to attend any sporting events and has no idea what is involved. Her appreciation comes off very fake.

This is where they are lacking most. The punishment dished out falls outside the boundaries of the handbook and is at the whim of the principal. You never know what your kids can get in trouble for. The staff will tell your child one thing and then the next day your child gets in trouble because the principal says that should not have been said. It creates a bullying environment from the adults that work there.

The plan is to get kids to rat on each other. Most teachers there also have children that go there which leads to a lot of favoritism and finger pointing. Remember this is a very small school and almost every grade has a teachers child in it.

Teachers are ineffective and this I feel that administration / principle is 100% responsible for this failure.

Homework is given but it's "busy" work at best. Crossword puzzles and other useless time wasters.

bulling is common not just among the children but staff, administration and teachers who are immature are often the instigators.
