No... NO, no, no no. Don't come here, I'm warning you. Send your child to a public school in your district, because St. Bede is a terrible choice for education. Most of the teachers are awful and aren't helpful at all. The other students are horrible to me and each other, and I want to leave. - student

I had high hopes of sending my child to this school as I attended a wonderful catholic school as a child. The only reason I am giving the school more than one star is because my child did have a wonderful teacher the first year, but that teacher is no longer there. The 2nd yr was another story. The teacher repeatedly mentioned that she was just waiting to retire, which you could see in her lack of enthusiasm towards her job. She was unable to keep the children under control and was known to yell at the children .i brought up all my concerns with the principal who was well aware of the yelling and lack of effort she put in towards academics. She said she would place the comments in her file. I feel if my child hadn't been above average at the beginning of the yr they would have fallen behind. The academics are sub par, they do just what is expected of them academically and boast about their "family" like atmosphere. They were not warm and welcoming. The families formed cliques & theirchildren acted the same, problems with bullying and "mean girls" started in kindergarten, this is baffling to me as it is Christian based. I'm 10x happier at the public school and so is my child.

I have the unique privilege of being a parent and a staff member at St. Bede School. Every teacher has played a significant role in the success of my children s education and character. They are excelling in their secondary education and college because of these incredible teachers. I have been a resident of this area my entire life and St. Bede School was the only choice for our children s future. Jack and Jacquie Raslawski

When I walk into St. Bede School, I feel like it s my second home where I love seeing everyone each morning. When I leave, it will be like leaving a family. Fagan Raslawski

This is the third school we have had our children in. We moved from another state and chose the Catholic School near our home for our children to attend last year and one year at that school was plenty. I did a lot of serious research for this current school year to make sure the school our children attend had everything we wanted to provide a solid, well rounded education for our children. This school is top rate in normal book smart education but they go the extra mile to provide an excellent spiritual and physical education as well. They educate the whole child in all areas rather than just teaching the test which is the norm in public schools. They teach our children for the today and for the long term to make sure we have intelligent and life functional adults in the long run. The teachers and all staff members go above and beyond to connect strongely with each child to make the most out of each childs education. Each child learns in their own way and the teachers find that method for the children so each child can reach their highest level of personal success. Not all private schools are created equally but this school is a leader in all areas. I highly recommend it to all!

About this school

Currently I am the principal at St. Bede School, but I was formerly a teacher here several years ago. The one quality that I would say makes St. Bede School different from other schools is the warm sense of family that is found here. I have worked at other schools prior to returning here, but have never felt this same type welcoming family atmosphere. There is a true sense of caring among the faculty, the students, and the parents. Everyone in our school cares for one another. All children are welcomed and students are encouraged to show their care and concern for others through their daily actions. Parents are seen as partners in their child's education and asked to communicate with their child's teacher as needed. Everyone is expected to show respect for others and to get involved in service opportunities. We want each child who enters our school to reach his or her full potential. Therefore, we believe that it is important to offer a variety of instructional strategies that reflect best practices. These best practices are based on educational research. We also acknowledge the importance of developing the whole child by offering a very strong faith based program. We expect all students to put their faith into action through participation in Mass, an active prayer life, and by following the footsteps of Jesus both in and outside the school. I am proud of our students for their academic accomplishments, as well as their Christian character formation. Please check us out on our website. We have an online informational booklet that tells you about us and offers pictures as well. Simply go to our website and click on "Information About Our School."
