This school has gone through a lot of changes that will result in a very bad institution. This mission statement : "The mission of St. Edward Parish School is to provide a Catholic education with Christian values rooted in a tradition of academic excellence for the children of the Jeffersontown area from Kindergarten to the Eighth Grade. Partners In Education, a committee of volunteer parents and teacher representative, assists the school in fulfilling its mission" is a very pathetic mission statement for an institution. As for values, the priest, principal, and others in administration are laying off the most important individuals in the community and don't "treat others the way they would like to be treated." This parish/school is not rooted in Christian values because the most important individuals who should be teaching these values are hypocrites and only care about money, not individual and family values. I would definitely not recommend getting into this mess of a parish because most likely it will be closed within the next five years because of the individuals "in charge."
I have 2 daughters that enjoy their friends there and believe in what they are taught.
my son absolutely loves it! Mrs.Keller really went out of her way to teach my son how to read.
I have two children at St. Edward grades First and Third. We love it! I have been thrilled with the caring teachers, and parental involvement. I feel like my children are receiving the best education, in a kind, caring atmosphere. The school focus on the faith as well as the academic. St. Edward has become an extended family. I feel blessed to have my children educated here.
I attend St. Edward School, and I love it. I cherish every day I am there. The acedemic programs are outstanding. The teachers explain every thing in such a way where I've learned everything in detail, plus more. My teachers are really involved with my extracurricular activities. My History teacher (reknown for his computer experties) Mr. Darryl Vigel is most active in my eyes. Alone he sponsors at least four activities throughout the year at one time. St. Edward is not only a place for acedemic acheivement, it is also a place of self-dicipline and how to better my self as a christian. We attend Catholic mass every thursday or tuesday, and have religion class almost every day. I feel welcom at St. Edward. I feel i can communicate with my teachers and other staff members. Over all I love St. Edwards and highly recomend it to parents.
I attended St. Edward for K-8 many years ago. I thought so highly of the school and parish community while I was in school that when it came time for my own child to go to school, there was never a question where he would attend. St. Edward is servicing his needs better than I could have ever imagined. My son was diagnosed with ADD earlier this year. The staff has done everything imaginable to accomodate his needs and to assure that he is progressing in his learning. Over the last year, my son has worked with both a math and reading recovery teacher and has rebounded in these areas. Parent and community involvement is strongly encouraged. My husband and I are both public school teachers and are familiar with many of the schools in the area. We are confident that our child is receiving the highest quality education available.
We have child at St Edwards in grade one 2004-2005 school year. We were very pleased with the kindergarten program and so for with the program this year. It is a small family oriented school and church. Peace Builder program shows the children a sense of community and friendship.
A bad school, the principal treats everyone in the school like a kid, even when adults come she treats them like babies. And also the Peacebuilders program is stupid. Very stupid. St. Edward needs a new principal. That is the main problem I have.
