Map of St James Episcopal Day School address.

September 22, 2014
St. James Episcopal Day School is Baton Rouge's best kept secret. I have 2 children that have attended St. James since Pre-K and Kindergarten and they are now in 3rd and 5th grade. Every year has been delightful and challenging within age-appropriate limits. The teachers and staff are nurturing and knowledgeable. I am an extremely overprotective parent but I trust my children in the care of the faculty and staff at St. James. The principal and teachers are top-notch. I am a part of Parents Guild and that group of women are amazing. The education is second to none. I would recommend St. James to everyone I know.

My 3rd son started at St. James two months after the school year started (transferred from another state/relocation for my husband's job). The staff and administration have gone above and beyond in making sure my son is settled and happy. The school notifies all the staff the day before the new student arrives, so that on day one- all staff members, administrators, everyone down to the cafeteria employees knew my sons name and made him feel welcome. All of the children in the school also knew his name. As a worried parent, not knowing for certain if you're making the best decision on a new school- St. James felt "right" right away. I felt secure in my decision on the first day. Great caring teachers, kind administrators, and a wonderful education. I have a 6th grade son whom I also had to secure a school for (St. James only goes to 5th grade). My 6th grader's transition was not nearly as smooth as the St. James staff and administrators made it for my 3rd grader. St. James provides an excellent education in a extremely nurturing environment!!!

I jumped up and down when we got the acceptance letter from St. James! This is a great school and I can't imagine my daughter going anywhere else. 2009 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, exceptional technology used every day in every classroom, involved teachers, small class size, and friendships that will last a lifetime.. I don't know what else anyone could ask for in a school.

It really is true that St. James provides the best k-5 education and prep. for the children of Baton Rouge.
