I have an autistic child and was thinking about sending my child there as a day student. Will my child receive a regular high school diploma? Is this a good school for children with special needs?
I came to this school.... and promptly became aethiest. I never smoked before i came here. The administration cares more about upholding policy then actually caring about its students, god forbid your a good person and make good grades and do one thing out of line and they promptly ruin your life. I had a good friend who was kicked out for something minuscule and his life was ruined, but the school moral code was upheld at least right guys, forget the fact we ruined someones future. Without a doubt, I hate this school.
I can't say enough good things about St. Stanislaus! It is, hands-down, the best boarding school in the area. My son was making mediocre grades at his previous school, and we knew that he could do better, but he just wasn't motivated and didn't have a structured enough life at home due to my husband and I working full time and raising two other children. Within one month of attending St. Stanislaus, the structured dorm life showed him how to organize his life and prioritize school work before play time. So much so that he made honor roll all six years that he was there. The dorm staff actually cared about him like he was their son. They stayed on top of his grades and homework daily to make sure that he was getting his school work done before he played outside with his friends. The teachers would be available for extra help before and after classes. My son quickly made friends with the other students through the various dorm activities. He ended up being accepted to several colleges. I am convinced that he succeeded in college due to the structure and motivation that he received while a boarding student at St. Stanislaus.
I went to this school several years ago. Its the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my life. I do not recommend this school to anyone. Stay away if you care for your children.
Saint Stanislaus has been very good for my son. The structure has improved his study habits and grades dramatically. He finds the courses more difficult, but the teachers interesting. His after-school time is filled with plenty of activities. He has not been homesick since the first week. He also likes and respects both prefects...good guys. Teachers, coaches, and guidance counselors are qualified and interested. God is in the leadership position, His proper place. Religion is an enjoyable experience, and not camouflaged in a secular ceremony as in some boarding schools.
St. Stanislaus college prep is by far the most respected school in this area. The academics are strenuous, and the Bible is respected. Community service is fostered, and the students are encourage to serve others as a part of the educational experience. St. Stanislaus is steeped in tradition, and attendance at this school is money very well spent.
As the mother of a SSC graduate and grandmother of a prospective graduate-Class of 2013 I can't say enough good things about this school. It prepares boys with an excellent education and inculcates the spiritual values that they need to mature into fine men.
St. Stanislaus deserves the highest of ratings as it is an academically driven and character building school with high standards for young men. This school is steeped in tradition, boasts state championships in multiple sports, and stresses community service as part of its curriculum. St. Stanislaus promotes a well-rounded approach to education in all of its forms.
For a day student, I would send my son in a second - boarding - dont make the mistake and send him as a boarder. I did and the biggest mistake of my life. Unless of course you dont care about your son then send him.
St. Stanislaus has a great atmosphere, great students, and a committed faculty.
I went to SSC until Katrina. It was a kool school. I had a lot of fun. I hope SSC are successfuly gettin back on their feet
My son attended and graduated from St. Stanislaus. It is one of the finest schools in the nation. He was safe. He was accepted and nurtured. He was challenged and encouraged to do his best. After high school he attended a premier university on full scholarship. What an exceptional return on investment.
Our son attended St. Stanislaus for 5 years. He excelled emotionally, accademically and spiritually. Facuality is outstanding. This school has teachers that want their students to excel and succeed. These students are well prepared for college. Because of this schools diversity, my son was prepared to interact with students from all nationalities and backgrounds. This is a school of character and it builds the students self esteem. My son is now enrolled at UAB in birmingham majoring in chemistry. I know that St. Stanislaus has a lot to do with his success. He is exceeding his and our expectations. He is and has been named on the Deans List. I recommend this school to any parent that has a student that needs discipline, has low self-esteem, needs motivation, wants a good education, looking for diversity, and who wants teachers that solely care for their students and strive for them to achieve.
This school cares deeply about each student, and will go the extra mile to be sure that each boy is performing to the best of his ability. Most important of all, the boys are happy here.
The teachers and staff at St. Stanislaus are wonderful people who care deeply for all fo the students. Its mission is built on character formation while providing a quality college preparatory education with a full span of extracurricular activities that compete annually on the state level.
I wish every student, parent, teacher, etc. could spend one day at St. Stanislaus, and then they would know that this is the best school on the coast.
Wonderful school ! The boys are both disciplined and nurtured .A great enviroment,with caring and competent teachers,coaches and staff !
I am paying for my grandson to attend SSC. He has made great strides, emotionally, spiritually and academically. He is still adjusting and is learning structure that will help him when he gets in the real world. He has a very unstable home life but is learning that it has nothing to do with who he is and what he can become. He still has a ways to go as it is his first year there. With the help of God working through these dedicated teachers and Administration, I will hope to see him come out of there as a Man of character, what else can you expect or want.
The School's motto is building men of character. That is exactly what they do. An incredible school for day or boarding students!
