St Bernards Elementary School 1

The Kindergarten I cannot praise enough. The 1-3 grades are adequate. The school is lacking once the students enter the 4th grade. The text books are 15-20 years old. There is virtually no Technology taught. Actually many teachers discourage the use of technology in researching subjects. there are no lockers or sufficient place to keep books so students are required to take book bags weighing up to 30lbs hold with them every night. The school/ teachers and principal are reluctant to implement any new ideas. PTO is used as a fundraising outlet only. PTO is discouraged from interfering in any class issues. Teachers are discouraged by the principal to attend PTO meetings. There are fundraisers one after another all year long and most are mismanaged. I would suggest this school for Kindergarten through 3rd Grade only.

Overall, this is an excellent school where respect is taught and expected from day one. The teachers are wonderful and the administration staff are great with the children. My only complaint is that parent concerns tend not to be addressed with complete satisfaction. There is a huge sense of community within this school - you will often see the older students playing with and helping the younger. It's a great school with very resonable tuition rates.
