St. Casimir is a warm and welcoming environment for students and parents. A great blend of academics and social engagement. It's a great option for private school in the city.

Great school that's actually *in* the city. My child has loved her time there so far and we intend to enroll her again next year. It's clear that she is learning a good deal but, perhaps as importantly, and enjoying learning. My only complaint (and it's minor) is that they follow the county for weather-related delays/closures even though the school is, as I said, decidedly in the city and most students either live in the area or have parents who work in the area).

The school helps kids become kind and bright young adults.The teachers are Respectful and go out of their way to help the students. This school is a top choice with small classes and plenty of extra activities for students.

My children have been going to St. Casimir school since they were in pre-k. I am amazed at all the things they are doing in the school. Most private schools in Baltimore have testing for enrollment. St. Casimir does not have a test to enroll students. The school is very diverse! Students are in this school because the want to be in the school. It is unfair to compare St Casimir with other schools in the area, just because we don't turn children away. Anyone can come to the school regardless of an admissions test. I do have to say every year, I see the school improving. My first grader is reading more and more every day. She is a confident student who comes to school ready to learn. The teachers have many roles in the school. Well. Due to funding, teachers take on different extra jobs, aside from their contracted job. Teachers do not have a whole lot of extra resources, the must make due with what they have. They make due. Exceedingly! The teachers continue to find ways to give the students the best education possible. Teachers are always looking for grants and other ways to enhance learning. There is so much more that this school has to offer!

I have two sons enrolled at St. Casimirs. My oldest is in 5th grade and has been there since PK-4 and my youngest is in first grade and also started in PK4. I cannot say enough about this school. The teachers are amazing and really care. The children are thoughtful, well-behaved, great kids. The principal is always looking to improve the curriculum, extracurricular activities and the school facilities. Please do yourself a favor and schedule an open house. You will not be disappointed.

My son has attended St. Casimir School for two year and we are pleased with the school. The teachers and staff are knowledgeable, caring and willing to work with the children/parents when needed. Overall, the kids are challenged academically and the environment is warm and friendly. Whenever I pick-up my son, I see lots of smiles and hugs and that means a lot to us. For clarification purposes, it is a community based school, but we don't live in the community (in fact, we are not even Catholic) and we have been welcomed with open arms. I definitely recommend that parents give this school a look before taking a pass based on old reviews.

There's a high drop out rate for kids that attended St. Casmir formerly Father Kolbe!

I have 3 kids in St. Casimir (formerly Father Kolbe) going from preschool through middle school, and I cannot be happier. It's such a close environment. The teachers are very willing to work with parents and kids when a child has a need. The teachers are so dedicated, putting in way more time than they are compensated for. The school takes a whole-person learning approach, so that includes community service, environmental issues, music, art, etc. Not teaching to the standardized test, which is so common these days. Incidentally, I am not a parishioner and not from Baltimore, and have never felt that had any bearing on anything regarding the school.

My children will not be returning! It's more of a social organization and club than a school. Teachers? Only two come to mind as educators with a calling, the rest know how I feel about them. The first/second grade teacher is now the principal and positive change will never come until the school board exercises some muscle and enforces a better curriculum focused more on learning, than on whether or not you attend that parish or are from B'almore, hon!

I don't know what some of these people are talking about. St Casimir School- formerly Father Kolbe is an amazing place where teachers and staff dedicate themselves to all aspects of a child's learning. They are greeted each morning by the principal who waits at the front door and addresses each child by name. The teachers are highly qualified professionals who come early and stay late to work with the students. The students, including my child come to school happy to be here. Best of all , the kids at this school are constantly involved in service programs. They are socially and globally aware. St. Casimir is even a Green School- one of the few in the City. I thank everyone at the school for all that they do and am glad to be a part of the St. Casimir Family.

My children really enjoyed their time at Father Kolbe School, now St. Casimir. They learned a great deal and looked up to their techers.

The teachers at Saint Casimir School go out of their way to make sure the children are well cared for. We strive to make learning fun and interactive for the students. Often times parents may visit school and see teachers giving up their own time to give students extra support in their school work.

This school is terrible. The teachers don't pay very much attention to the students even though they have small class sizes. Do not send your child here.

Father Kolbe has a very good standing in my book. All teachers in this school care about the students. Many of the teacher go way out of their way to help the students. The area also around the school seem to be a safe and caring area. My family has been around this school for 7 years.
