What's not to love about St. Cletus? The faculty is devoted and willing to help their students in everyday possible. The principal leads this faculty and staff with a Christ centered approach to each situation and student. St. Cletus educates the whole child. Both of my children have attended St. Cletus and I'm grateful for each and every person my child has come into contact with. I highly recommend this school!

This is not a good school at all. I've never been so disappointed at a school. Definitely not what God would want

We moved to New Orleans and the education system is not great. St. Cletus' elementary grades are average. The middle school needs lots of improvement. The principal isn't warm and friendly. I am not sure if she should be working with kids. My husband and I are thinking about moving next year so our kids will live in a better enviorment and will get a better education. We feel that the people of New Orleans are behind and they don't realize it.

At. Cletus is an excellent School with strong leadership and caring faculty. My Daughter loves the school. The pastor is also very involved with the School. I feel that St. Cletus is the best Catholic School on the West Bank.

My children have attended St. Cletus since pre-k. They have fantastic teachers, a supportive and helpful administrative staff, fabulous principal and a diverse student body. St. Cletus is the perfect size school- not too big or too small- and offers many extracurricular activities. The principal has an open door policy and is proactive at assuring all students feel safe and loved. Teachers are easily accessible for questions and/or concerns. I can't imagine a better place for my girls to be educated. Love it!!

No school in always perfect. St. Cletus has very dedicated teachers that work hard to give each child an opportunity to learn in a safe environment. Administration makes sure that the teachers have (including working on certification) what they need to teach meaningful engage filled lessons. Data and research are used to drive decisions. Test scores went up in several sub test areas and compared to the region, St. Cletus did very well. Security has been upgraded for the protection of students and staff. We have a supportive Pastor that supports the improvements of the school.

My child did not start her school career at St. Cletus, we came in as outsiders and were immediately accepted as part of the St. Cletus family. I was worried she was coming in somewhat behind SCS students but her teachers brought her to speed quickly. These are some of the most qualified group of educators I have ever encountered. Our principal is making sure our teachers are keeping up with the latest in professional development along with them all being certified or working on certifications. Our test scores are up along with enrollment. Technology is always being updated. Our school security system was just replaced to make the school safer for our students. St. Cletus was the best move I could have ever made for my child's education!

Our school is wonderful and forever growing. Under the current adminstration the enrollmen has increased along with our standarized test scores. The faculty and staff are dedicated and willing to go the extra mile for the students and for each other. We are supported by the community and Pastor as well. Everyone in our St. Cletus family is willing to do what it takes to help our children succed in school and move on to thier next journey in education.

I don't understand the last four poster's comments. Our current principal is the best thing that ever happened to St Cletus. Our enrollment is up and our standardized test scores are up. In fact, this past year we had the highest scores in our area. She is requiring all the teachers to become certified and she pushes the teachers to have high standards for themselves. And we certainly haven't lost any "good" teachers. I highly recommend St Cletus. It is a family oriented school.

9 teachers left last year and 7 this year. While numbers are up teacher turn over speaks volumes. This school is just not the same under the new administration.

I believe that st.cletus prepares you for high school in the most exceptonal way. i also believe that sometimes the discipline can go to far. also i think that the agenda marking procedure is useless because if we are preparing for high school then we shouldnt have the agenda marking process.

St. Cletus offers their students a wonderful education through using a holistic approach. The teachers combine spiritually with hands-on activities to enrich the educational experience. The teachers go above and beyond of what is expected of them. I am so pleased with everyone on the staff. Even better than that, my child loves her school!

I had 2 kids go to St. Cletus from Pre-K to 7th. One left to go to Archbishop Blenk where she is a National Honor Society student. My son went to Brother Martin where he regularly makes A's, B's and a C once in a while. St. Cletus has been wonderful and with our 3rd child still there we could not be happier. We work the fair and participate in the parish functions and really enjoy interacting with all the other families of the parish. It is a great school and I recommend it strongly!

St. Cletus is a wonderful school. The faculty, staff, and teachers truly care about the students and their families as well. St. Cletus offers computer classes to every grade level as well as many other additional activities. The parents are very involved with the school. The school has an open door policy which makes the atmosphere very welcoming. This school is smaller than some of the other ones in the area, but the money you pay is well worth it ... the time and care invested by this school in your child will show. I cannot tell you enough positive things about the school!

I think that St.cletus is a wonderful school. All of the teachers are willing to help and the principle is a wonderful leader. We do lots of fun things to make school more enjoyable. Although i think we could use more extracurriclular activities, I am glad we have the ones we do. I am currently in two extracurricular perograms and am enjoying it very much. I think St. Cletus was a wonderful choice for me.

This is my daughter's first year and so far it seems great. The teachers are caring and everyone is so into the children. The school seems united. Every parent I talk with has nothing but positive comments for St. Cletus.
