School Official Point of View

Posted January 25, 2011

St. Aloysius Catholic School is an excellent educator of the whole child. We work together as a community to serve the academic, spiritual, social, and emotional needs of each child. My own children attend St. Aloysius---if I want the best for them, I want the best for you! Please feel free to contact me for more information, a personal tour, or just to learn more about the area. We are here to help.

I have two children in this school. I like the principal very much. However, while volunteering, I have found several teachers, as well as the asst. principal, condescending, and disrespectful of the students. If you are from Pewee Valley/Crestwood, it might be a welcoming environment. If you are not, it can be cold as Ice. We are searching for a new school.

We have 2 children at St Aloysius. One in middle school and one in elementary. We have been at this school since preschool and just love it. The school provides an excellent environment for learning. They have quality teachers who truly enjoy teaching which gives the children a very positive learning experience. There is a true feeling of community from Kindergarten to 8th grade. We feel the administation's leadership is outstanding. Their decisions seem to be truly based on what is good for the students.

I would not recommend this school. Big classes, chaotic, teachers are overwhelmed, kids get very little individual attention. So many better schools available for your money. 1 year was more than enough for us. They do offer lots of sports and if that is your thing, this is the school for you.

St. Aloysius is a wonderful school. We have two boys, one in fifth and one in second. The academics are challenging, there are numerous activities to become involved in, such as rocket club, art club, sports, scouts, etc. As parents, we are encouraged and welcomed into the school environment. Our children will stay at St. Aloysius until time to graduate, which will be a sad time.

Most importantly St. Aloysius is a parish school, which we find to be a fantastic environment for our kids. It keeps our children challenged academically while also encouraging them to be outstanding christian people. Our children are spread out over middle, intermediate, and elementary grades and they have enjoyed every year. The teachers are dedicated, energetic, and creative. The atmosphere is friendly, welcoming, and caring from administration, faculty, and peers alike. There is great volunteer support from the families, which adds to the warmth and welcoming of the community.

Let me jump on the St. Aloysius bandwagon too! We moved to Louisville two weeks before school started. We didn't know too much about the area, so we feel very blessed that our daughter ended up at this fantastic school. We can't say enough about the principal, Mrs. Hayslip. She makes each child feel special and unique. She personally gave our daughter a tour of the school and helped make the transition an easy one for her. Our daughter is leaning a lot, has a fantastic teacher, and is excited to go to school every day. There is much to offer at this wonderful school.

We have been at St. Aloysius for two years and we love the school and the community. The school has so many things to offer educational wise-each classroom has a SMART board and microphone. The new principal is wonderful and has great things in store for the school. There are many activities for your child to get involved in from sports to scouts. St Aloysius is a school where you can feel good about sending your child each morning.

Three of my children attend St. Aloysius School and we LOVE it. We have one in pre school and two in the elementary school. I can't think of a better place to have my children learn. St. Aloysius has that small town school feel and it is a family community. The administration is great and has a wonderful vision for the school and knows all the children by name. If you want to feel good about dropping your kids off everyday and know they are in good hands come check out St. Aloysius.

St. Aloysius is a great school and community. Our children are spread out over middle, intermediate, and elementary grades and we have enjoyed every year. They have up to date technology with a small school feel. There is something for everyone. PTO, Men's Club, etc. have all been very welcoming. The new principal promises to bring a lot to the building. We are looking forward to another great year.

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.
