The way St. Elizabeth dealt with my daughter was a disgrace. First, they told us there was "something wrong" with her and pressured us to have her tested, assessed and screened at our expense. None of this turned up any problems. It did, however, damage my child's self-esteem. Next, we were subjected to constant all-hands-on-deck meetings where the administration told us how concerned they were, never mind that our daughter's report cards showed steady progress and her behavior had improved dramatically. Finally, it was made clear that she would not be welcomed back to the school for second grade, but this decision was communicated to us at such a late date that it has been difficult for us to find a new school for our daughter. By their own admission, St. Elizabeth doesn't want our daughter back because she's "different." She thinks, acts and works in a way that's unlike other students. It doesn't matter that she reads beautifully, learns quickly, is extremely bright and loves everybody. This is a coercive school that wants each student to fit into a mold. If you have children who think and act like individuals, don't send them here.
Great teachers. Great community. And, as my kids always say when they're asked this question, great cafeteria food--especially the sloppy joes.
I love the community feeling of this church & school. It is just AWESOME!!!
The school provides a great education and an opportunity to be a part of an incredible community.
Academically challenging. Students are well prepared for the private high schools in the area. This is an incredible community... like and extended family.
The community, the kids, the teachers and staff. Everyone works together to make it the best school it can be!
