Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
June 02, 2015
There is a good mix of experienced and new teachers and they all learn from each other. The teachers are a family and know each student by name. The students do good work, and receive many awards so they seem to be very effective.

Amount of homework: Just right

The coursework is pretty demanding, but it is meant to prepare students for the best high schools and colleges, and the teachers work with the students to make sure the amount of homework given is not overwhelming. The school also offers homework help and after-school tutoring.

St. Constance School provides a solid education with a good grasp of community, faith, and knowledge. It prepares our children with the tools needed to succeed. The teachers are caring and focused on providing the needed support so that our children benefit and grow. Leaving my child at St. Constance is like leaving them with a trusted family member. We also love the after school enrichment programs that the children have multiple choices to participate in.

The school continues to be a vital part of our lives. My kids love it, and as each one graduates, I get more sad that one day it won't be such a big part of our lives. We are a St. Constance School family forever!

St. Constance School provides a safe friendly environment for all students, and no student is left behind. The teachers work hard to focus on each student's individual needs. The student-teacher ratio is small enough to make this possible. The school is just the right size, and the Principal and staff are friendly, reasonable and easy to get along with. I couldn't ask for more from a school, and am very grateful we are able to be a part of this school.

St. Constance has very dedicated and experienced teachers and staff. They don't "teach to the test" but rather provide the kids the fundementals needed to succeed in our competitive world. There are after school programs to choose from - homework help, martial arts, fun with math, young Rembrandts, dance classes, computer media, crochet club, to name a few. The school has a band program and offers a half day summer program on "interactive whiteboard fun". I have 2 children at St Constance and they love it. My oldest daughter graduated from there and learned non-academic traits such as service and volunteering which she has continued in high school.

I have attended St. Constance for 9 years and I could not have asked for a better educational experience. The school has strengthened my social, as well as academic skills. The small class sizes not only allow for greater teacher-student interaction, but also allows the students to grow close to one another.

St.Constance is a diverse, welcoming community set in a beautiful, safe, state-of-the-art facility that I cannot say enough about. My 2 daughters were educated for all 9 years at St. Constance. They were well prepared with the reading, writing, math, and science skills they would need for successful futures in high school and college. Their elementary teachers set a high standard that motivated them for the competitive world that awaited them. The school's small class size gave every child the opportunity for individual assistance. At St. Constance, they learned responsibility, volunteerism, compassion, and good moral values. I am so grateful to all the teachers who educated them for helping to make them into the young women that I am so proud of today.

Both of my children gratuated with honors from St. Constance School. They left the school extremely prepared for high school. I was very pleased with the variety of programs, the teachers and staff at the school. Their social and spiritual growth was also very important to me, and I am very proud of the people they've become.

Many new and fun activities for the students after school make this place the perfect school for my kids. I don't have to worry they are up to no good when I'm at work. My kids learned a lot since switching schools in 3rd and 4th grade and I'm very happy I chose this school.

I am an alum of St. Constance, and I feel that it has prepared me for high school immensely. I am about to graduate from a Catholic high school, and as I am about to go to college I cannot picture myself attending a different elementary school. The environment was very friendly and time spent with the teachers one on one was very important in my development as a student and a person.

Need more diversity, need more resources for kids, need teachers with more open minds and understand that not all children learn the same way.

I've been going to St. Constance School for the past 9 years and I've changed so much. I will be graduating this year and I will never forget everything that I've learned here. Even though I'm not of the Polish ethnic, I've never felt left out because everyone at this school is so friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this school for anyone. Since I went here, I've been accepted into the honors program of my future high school, Trinity and I'm eligible for a scholarship. There are also many extras to this school such as sports, the new clinics, band, and teen club. Go to St. Constance for the learning experience of a lifetime!

Both my children attend St. Constance School, and our family is extremely happy with the school. St. Constance has excellent teachers, evidenced by the high Terra Nova scores (way above the National Average). In addition to helping students excel in Math English and other basic subjects, St. Constance offers special programs and classes that are important in attaining a well rounded education. Students at St Constance can choose a special clinic in Drama, Language, Home Economics just to name a few. St. Constance School has a new Band program that is excellent.

My children attend St. Constance School for the last 4 years, and I am overwhelmed by the staff support, parent involvement, and quality of educations that the school offers. Many events are sponsored by the Home School Association, Sports Association, School Board and the different parish organizations (I personally like the Santa s Workshop, Breakfast with Bunny, Parent s Night Out, School Dance, out of dozen or so events). It is easy to join and participate in any of the events. Education is one of the strengths of the St. Constance School. St Constance School staff is always available to help with my children development, and provides for pleasant learning environment.

St.Constance has an excellent academic program as well as various depts such as music, arts, sports, etc.. However, they lack on parent involvement . True, that 90% of the students are of the Polish ethnic, St. Constance main focus is on communicating with these parents in their native language 'polish' therefore, leaving the remaining 2% of non-polish parents to figure school activities on their own. Due to this, the non-polish student ratio has dramatically dropped and transferred to St. Roberts a few blocks away.
