Saint Patrick School is ALL ABOUT EXCELLENT TEACHING and creating a LEARNING ENVIRONMENT where children excel academically, socially and personally. Children are happy at Saint Patrick School. They want to go to school and learn. This is reason enough to send your child to this school. The administration leads with vision and professionalism. The principal is constantly working to support excellent instruction, and is present with children. The teachers are the BEST IN HAWAII. They love children and teaching. They are committed to providing the best education for every student. Saint Patrick School is unique in many ways. It offers electives in the arts, performing arts, sciences, physical education, advanced math, and world languages. The curriculum is aligned to National Core Standards. Morning and after school care, summer programs, field trips, educational opportunities for parents, and technology is integrated into every classroom. Saint Patrick subscribes to BYOD.

Children love learning at Saint Patrick School! Our children are thriving in school. They come home and are excited about what they learned during the day. I can talk easily with their teachers, and i feel like we are partners in our children's education. The administration has a "real open door policy." I feel welcome in the principal's office. Saint Patrick School uses Ed Line so we can look at homework, assignments, and grades on-line at anytime. Every Sunday we receive a phone call with information about the coming week. Our children's teachers stay in contact with us personally and by phone and e-mail. We feel very much apart of our children's education. Our family loves how Saint Patrick School educates for the future. Our kids love how technology is included in all subject areas. Art, Music, PE, World Languages, and Tutoring are things our children really love about school. As parents, we want the best education possible in Hawaii for our children. Saint Patrick School is providing this for our children with their commitment to meeting national standards. Your children too will love learning at Saint Patrick School!

Saint Patrick School is GREAT for kids! The teachers, principal and office staff work so hard to make learning fun! I am a graduate and now a parent at Saint Patrick School. I send my kids to Saint Patrick because of the EXCELLENT TEACHERS. I also love that the curriculum is based on national standards assuring me that my kids will be as prepared for college as I was. My kids love Math, Social Studies, PE, Reading, Writing, and the Cooperative Learning. Saint Patrick School is all about kids and learning!

This school is just terrifically horrible. My child learn absolutely nothing and I am surprised how lazy the teachers are. Some of them are good but most of them would not help my child in what they are having trouble on and I think most of them don't care. I am pretty sure the teachers have a "favorite students" and give them good grades. Also my child has told me that they are not allowed to run around or play tag. I think kids should go out and play. Also from what I see is most of the kids don't even play. Also the teachers just go walking around when they play like security guards or something. Also I like how the school always want money from parents but then they give nothing in return. I hear my child rarely go on field trips. My child has been to other schools like Royal school and Jefferson and this one was the worse.

Exception teachers and Principal leadership in a very caring environment that has zero tolerance for bullying and nurtures sharing and compasion in fellowship among all their students. They have a contemporary approach to old school teaching which emphasizes traditional academic sckills without losing site of technology. My kid easily engages in his lessons and learrns a great deal. We are very please with his progress as a well rounded student and his peers also reflect this kind of educational status. Certainly all private schools are good, but this one is truly excellent.

Saint Patrick School has continued to develop into an excellent school. I have children in their early learning program and couldn't be happier. They are at least a year ahead of where they would be in the local public schools, and happier than if they were in one of the larger private schools. I look forward to seeing them continue through their 8th Grade. I have seen great things in their upper grades with the intergration of technology into the classes. I especially like the idea of internet based texts being used in the classroom. Saint Patrick also uses Edline which helps me stay informed about what is happening with my children.

St. Patrick provides a balanced curriculum that educates the whole child. The Christian values are emphasized throughout the curriculum. The teachers demonstrate a strong sense of community and care for each and every student. The School offers a quality education for all children including preschool. That's great news for young familiies in our neighborhood.

I taught at this school in the 70's. I thought it was a good school then. Now that I have grand children in the school, it is a great school. The school has advanced so much and the programs offered are preparing students for highschool. My grand child will be applying for a private highschool because of the preparation at St. Patrick. Thank you.

Compared to other private schools of this 'league', this has to be the worst. Only recently new technology and 'normal' procedures been adopted. The school also has bad funds, so it cannot afford many things needed for a higher-quality education to be expected. The staff of teachers there are absolutely horrible. I admit, there are some excellent experienced teachers, but most are just bad. The students aren't even educated very well. They aren't being prepared for high school and the real world. Bad methods and some teachers are overly aggressive, creating a serious self-esteem problem. The actual physical environment is well-suited for learning, but it is not taken advantage of. The poorly funded extra curricular programs are of no use, and your money is better used elsewhere. Bad funding, bad teachers, insufficient staff, and bad environment make this one of the worst schools. Your money is put to waste here.

This school is great. I am a former teacher and I have gone to some of the best Catholic Schools in the United States. St. Patricks tuition is also very reasonable considering the value you get for the tuition.

My child has been attending Saint Patrick School since the 2nd grade. I believe the transition of a new principle and new guidelines in teaching, instructing, homework and extra-cirricular activities have greatly improved the credibility of the school. I have witnessed a great improvement in my child's scholastic performance. The school encourages everyone to be a well-rounded student. From traditional subjects to elective courses in art, music and language, can only enhance each child. There is a sense of family amongst faculty, parents and student-body. The athletics programs offers each child an opportunity to learn a sport and teaches team play. All transitions begin with 'bumps in the road', however, I have seen progress in the last two years with this school and am duly impressed. From a parent whose child in now in the 8th grade and will graduate May 2009.

This school was so much better when the previous principal was there. She made the school feel safe, fun, and comfortable. Now this new principal she does not back up the kids at all. My daughter has been going to St. Patrick for two years and I am pulling her out. I have gone to a private school in the mainland and they would take care of their students. I believe St. Patrck is just out for the money.

Saint Patrick is a private school in the small town of Kaimuki, where teachers and administration are committed to the highest quality of education for each child. Especially in the past year, the staff has been working to implement current techniques and research. The new attitude at the school is one of respect for one another and how important learning is. Excellent education where every child is important.

Saint Patrick's School is a place for any child who wants to learn and succeed. The teachers are outstanding! Administration is up to date in their techniques and are attempting to implement the latest programs. The music program is to be noted. The Science program is a mainstay. The computer lab teaches students life long skills. Reading is a new emphasis. Teachers are caring, giving, talented, and wonderful with children.

Saint Patrick School is creating an environment where all children can learn. There is new leadership, and the teaching staff is one of the best in Hawaii. Our children love to attend school. The teaching is exceptional, although the staff has very high expectations for each child. Saint Patrick's is a country school in the middle of a big city. Every kid is important.

The school has undergone major reform with the new administration. We are very happy with the changes and see the quality returning to what the school has experienced in the past when we first enrolled our child here. Teachers are caring and freindly, very helpful.

My son went to kindergarten for one month and we were not only disappointed, but fearful for his safety, and had to pull him out and relocate him to another private school. The focus on silly things such as hair being no longer than an inch long and no characters (other than Nike, for whatever reason) on his shoes would have been better spent on making sure that the children were supervised and safe. Very substandard in my opinion and I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.

The level of parent involvement varies from teacher to teacher. Some of the teachers use intimidation methods to try to get the students motivated and will belittle the child in front of others. The better teachers seem to be moving onto other private schools. Wish there was more of an effort to work with the child's learning style rather than

St. Patrick School is an excellent, affordable, Catholic School in Hawaii. The atmosphere is much more friendly that what you would find at other private schools in Hawaii. You truly feel like family. Although the discipline program needs some reinforcement, and maintenance is required in some common areas, it is an excellent school with some of the best teachers I have ever encountered.

St. Patrick School is good school, tuitions low, year round, but it would be a greater school if the academics were just a bit better. The teacher turn-over is a factor in this too. Teacher evaluations submitted by the parents should be considered at the end of the 1st semester and at the end of each school year to help improve on what is now in place.

The school has a nuturing and caring enviornment. I would prefer more integrated learning lessons rather than just primarily worksheets. I think the funds and resources are very limited and that's where the school lacks in providing an interesting and exciting learning experience via projects and hands on learning.
