Posted May 17, 2012

I have just learned that there will be a replacement teacher for Saint Anthony's English classes and their religion classes. Apparently the new replacement for the religion class is an administration member; I'm of the opinion that having an administration member teaching a class would be to strenuous. On top of having the responsibilities of an administrator the replacement would also have to formulate class plans. Due to the ratio of teachers to the amount of available subjects there is an overabundance of teachers who teach multiple classes. Having school staff members (administration, faculty members and teachers) upholding multiple responsibilities is to much to ask for. Regardless on whether or not the school is public or private, schools shouldn't demand so much of their teachers. Teachers who teach multiple classes may be discouraged to thoroughly teach each subject and may become too preoccupied preparing for their other classes. Despite the over-tasking of the teachers I find the school satisfactory. There are many teachers who would go the extra mile to assist the students and I appreciate their help, however, it is important that the teachers don't strain themselves.

My children love going to school in the mornings. They and their classmates consistently rank above the national average in critical reading and writing, and two of my children were accepted by several leading universities because of the excellent academic education and the important leadership skills they learned at SAS. The youngest two are involved in community service projects as well as sports, arts, and academic competitions. SAS provides a safe, wholesome, christian (Marianist) environment for students. What other school can offer that?

I was a teacher at SAS and know that the old administration left behind a lot of garbage. The new principal was caring and strong enough to bring about new changes. I felt a lot of camaraderie there with the admin and the faculty as well as the staff. My students were great in spite of some behavior problems in some and lack of self-discipline in others. I would love to see better discipline and responsibility in the students as well as better self-respect and mutual respect of students. I also would love to see students really respect their elders, defer to authority, and have obedience as it used to be in the old days when SAS was know for their strict discipline that was taught by the religious sisters and brothers. I really did enjoy teaching at SAS and would not mind having my own children attend this school.

I am a 2008 Alum and this school was a good place to grow up. Admin was horrible and the school is losing more and more teachers. Discipline in student body is going down because admin would not allow teachers to deal with misbehaiving students appropiatly. The only thing teachers could do was send them up to the office were nothing was done to correct their behaivior. The school all around was a mess because of poor financing and intelligent personel in admin. With all of that aside... I as a student felt like St. Anthony was my home because of the family type of atmosphere. And I fear that soon the poor condition that St. Anthony is in will tear that family atmosphere apart. Once better teachers are obtained and corrections are made in admin, St. Anthony will be the best.

Limited music and art. Most of attention spent on football. Academically, AP classes are available. And teachers do take a personal interest in your child. However, Teachers/administrators spend too much time on pointing out trivial things, ie 'tucked in shirt', matching socks, etc. I'm sure they would rather concentrate on teaching. After a while teens just tune them out. Need more positive feedback to students in general. They get enough nagging at home or maybe not? New Principal being brought on starting fall 2007. We are looking forward to some new leadership.

Quality, caring teachers and administration who are willing to go the extra mile for their students. Limited music and art, however, advance placements courses are available as well as college placement opportunities.

Horrible administration. The only choice I have besides public school. Not worth tuition but my kid is safe.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. 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.
