St James School
Develops honesty: Strongly disagree

Honesty and integrity is dismissed by allowing students who are physically violent and verbally aggressive stay in the classroom to disrupt the learning of others. It's very disappointing to deal with a school who not only allows this behavior but prides themselves on their bullying program that has no follow through and their faith.

St James is an Amazing school with smaller class sizes taught by excellent teachers. It's a safe and nurturing environment that empowers students to achieve their full academic potential as well as becoming lifelong learners and good stewards.Parents are encouraged to participate with hands-on involvement in each child's education. We love the attention given to each child and the strong sense of family community.

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.
