If you value your privacy or don't want to experience being judged by your child's teacher or administration, do not send your child here. Even after two years of moving to another school closer to my new home I discovered that one of the Kindergarten teachers at St. George slandered me to her adult daughter. The teacher was talking about some personal issues that only she and the school knew. The issue is the gossip got back to me at a completely new school. So if you ever get divorced, are not wealthy, or have any normal life struggles you will be made to feel like a second-class citizen here. Mr. Nelson and Mrs. Guillot the principal and assistant-principal leave a lot to be desired. Do yourself a favor, spend your tuition money somewhere else.

I am very pleased with St George. The school is run like a well oiled machine. It is a loving, nurturing environment. Mr Nelson is a great principal and it is very obvious that he is perfect for his job.

I've attended St.George for 9 years now. I think I've gotten a great education from it. Are they competitive? Yes! But that drives everyone to do better, even if we struggle sometimes. The down side to St. George is probably an issue common among other private schools. Here it is: St.George has had numerous bullying seminars given to all of us in the middle school. But nothing really changes. I wouldn't say there is an issue of verbally bullying, but more of an issue with cliques. If you don't fit the "cool" standards, you aren't in the "in-crowd". I think it's b/c most of the people that go here have wealthy parents. Most of my friends' parents are Lawyers, Doctors, Chefs, and owners of medium- sized businesses . Most of us are spoiled- which isn't always a bad thing, but for someone who may not be able to afford the new Michael Kors watch, it probably wouldn't feel so good, especially because then you are not fitting the standards of "cool". SGS has never fully allowed me to be myself, but as not only the standards of the school, but the student body. As any school, it has its setbacks. Overall the school is OK, but I'll be happy to get to high school and have a fresh start.

The school is not the same quality of school as it was with Mrs. Bersch. declining rapidly with the new principal this year

Homework and academic expectations are unreasonable for lower elementary students given large class sizes. School seems very intent on being "the best" academically and athletically sometimes at the expense of the children's best interests.

I am a new administrator to St. George Catholic School. I am inspired daily by the St. George community. The spirit of kindness and compassion are demonstrated everyday, throughout the day. Each day I am impressed by the dedication and caring nature of the teachers and staff and the rigor of the instruction they share with our students. Each day I am proud of the hard work and determination our students demonstrate. Each day, I am fortunate to be a part of such an excellent educational institution.

Both of my children currently attend this school. My youngest son has a peanut allergy which the school and his teacher were aware of. His teacher allowed him to eat a snack from an unknown source which contained peanuts without reading the ingredients resulting in my son being rushed to the emergency room in a potentially fatal condition. I discussed the matter with the principal the next day at which time he had not even discussed what happened with my son's teacher. Neither the principal nor the teachers or staff expressed any concern regarding my son's health and took absolutely no proactive measures to ensure that the situation never happens again. Their attitude and lack of safeguards and concern are unacceptable and I have begun the process of researching alternative schools.

I've been at St. George since kindergarten and am now going into 8th grade. St. George has prepared me for many challenges in the future. The teachers are amazing and have helped me reach many of my goals. Our church is very loving and considerate to the needs of each and every student. My faith has grown tremendously with the help of our church and teachers. I can't thank St. George enough for everything they've done. The years I've been here were the best of my life and I will never forget them. Ms. Bankston was the best teacher ever!! :)

As a former student of St. George I have to say my years at St. George were the best i have ever had. I learned from some of the best educators possible. I enjoyed the athletics especially Volleyball and cheerleading. Other athletics are to say the least the best in the city. St. George has left an imprint on my outlook on life and my values and i highly recommend it.

Coming from a parent who's had 10 years experience in the St. George school community, I'd say that St. George rates high in excellence. They have numerous athletic, music and art opportunities, high academic standards to continuously challenge the children yet keep learning fun, exceptional disciplinary guidelines, many fun activities for the children throughout the year and excellent communication with parents. St. George has helped my children develop into well rounded individuals seeking high moral values and understanding their spirituality more fully. I wouldn't change anything about the path we've chosen for our children in their elementary years.
