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!
this is a great school. I am a student here at st. bede school and I am going into seventh grade. we are rebuliding the school and it will be finished in 2years. the teachers are great and nice. the principal (mrs. webb) is nice. There's all normal classes(spelling, religion, social studies, englilsh, reading, science, math) extra things like gym, music, computers, and library for PRE-K through 4th grade.
