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.
Learning for All Kindness, patience, welcoming spirit, cooperative learning, high expectations
Teachers at saint patrick are simply outstanding professionals. A new principal and pastor have restored discipline and parent involvement. Excellent educational opportunities.
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
I am very disappointed at the level that some of the teachers are concerned and help the children. There's more to a child than just how high they can score on a test. Also, at a Catholic school you would think that teachers would have a level of integrity and not
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.
academics at this school is pretty good. but, they tend to lean towards intimidation for discipline. especialy in the upper grades. (5-8)
