As a former student, they didn't teach me anything the whole time. The teachers are awful, they are always asking for money, and they only like you if you attend the school for PK-8th grade. So if you are changing schools, Go somewhere better like, like any other catholic school minus St.Charles and St.Andrews
Good school but expect to pay more than the tuition/ tithing amount. They are constantly asking us for money. One of their favorite fundraising efforts involves promoting local businesses & restaurants. They tell the kids all about CiCi's Pizza or McDonald's night, even putting stickers on their clothing to "remind" us! The peer pressure is getting to be too much. I think the expectation is that all families have alot of money to spare.
After 4 years at St James, we chose to leave. The cirriculum and most teachers were good, but the administration was poor. They do a great job promoting the school and sweeping any issues under the carpet. We seen bullying as a big problem there, especially at the middle school level. We know many families that have left with similar concerns.
I brought my child to St. James and there is no comparison to public schools. St. James really gave my daughter academic and the life-long knowledge she needs to grow strong and learn right from wrong.
