There are limitless possibilities for parent involvement. The faculty know each and every student by there first name and know where they belong. St jerome is like a big extension of our own family. The student are very respectful of each other and adults. The variety of specialties is amazing for a small school. There is music, art and French. There is computer and library too. There are special ed services available for those students who need it too. My children love to go to school! They have lots of opportunity for sports too, such as; swimming,soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, baseball and track. The kids in the younger grades get prayer buddies and reading buddies depending on the grade level. It is an amazing school and the best decision we have ever made for our kids and our family.

This school is amazing for a small school. The student to teacher ratio is about 15 to one. The middle school academics are superb and the students leaving to go to high school have an easy transition. Most are prepared for upper level Math and English. The parent involvement is limitless. The teachers actually like to have parent helpers and participants. There is no limit to what is available. The atmosphere her is like being in a family. The students are extremely respectful to adults and each other. The eighth grade have Kindergarten buddies and this sense of caring and protection permeate throughout the school. I have never been happier and neither have my children. They have music, art and French. Sports include basketball, soccer, baseball, softball, volleyball and swimming. They also have Math Masters, which is a program for students wishing to challenge themselves in Math.
