St. Gabriel's does a fair job in educating students and prepping them for high school. Many of the teachers are arrogant and more impressed with proving they can out smart a gifted student or humiliate a learning disabled student than elevating their learning. The parental atmosphere is notorious in the area for bad sportsmanship. Don't put your child in school at Gabes if the aren't athletic or have interests outside of sports. As a parent, if you want to fit in and want your child to fit in, plan on attending the ACTS retreat. You don't need to go to church, you just have to go on the retreat, so you can make 200 of the closest friends you'll ever have. The ACTS retreat moved into the parish about 8 years ago and took a parish that was already snooty and full of cliques and put God behind those cliques. It's a beautiful neighborhood with other school options around, wish I'd have used them. Many a child has suffered from the combination of Teachers who bully, parents who divide into cliques and children who are raised to be closed minded and poor sports.

St. Gabes is a fantastic school within a very involved community. The curriculum has evolved to include Spanish, Art, PE and Computer Science. Every classroom has smart boards and computer access from Tablets in Kindergarten to workstations in middle school. The Math, Science and Reading programs are great and I believe are superior to some of the "STEM" charter schools. There is an enrichment program for gifted students as well as after school Activities that range from Lego's to Chess to Karate to cooking. Amazingly, the principal knows every child by name and fosters a fantastic learning environment. If you are looking for an excellent education at a reasonable cost where the parents are involved and care about each and every student in the City of St. Louis. St. Gabes is a perfect fit. We love it!

My children attend St. Gabriel School in south St. Louis. The structure and discipline are excellent! The student body at St. Gabriel is predominantly white and Catholic, although diversity of race is always welcome, and non Catholics are certainly accepted. The school community and parent involvement is outstanding! The principle has her doctorate and has almost two decades of experience as a school administrator. Although St. Gabriel caters to families with special needs, i.e. handicaps, peanut allergies, and learning disabilities etc., they struggle to accommodate gifted students. Their excellent language arts program is counter balanced by a poor math program. I supplement math in the summer to ensure that my kids reach their full potential in this area. The focus at this school is mastering each study topic before moving on, in contrast to many public school's who aim to expose students to as many study topics as possible.

Dr.Ann Davis is wonderful w/ the students, and seems to be everywhere in the school...always watching. The students have little opportunity to goof-off, or find trouble because Ann always knows whats going on! There is a high level of respect that students show the adults and each other, I've never seen that in a public school. And they get a good healthy dose of catholic teachings, as well. Academically speaking, I think St.Gabriel is pretty middle of the road. It's biggest downfall, in my opinion, is that it lacks diversity.I hope I'm being politically correct in the way I word this...Out of 500 or so students, only 2 or 3 are African American, 2 bi-racial, and a small handful Asian. In that regard, I wish the school were more 'colorful'.

This is an excellent school. The principal not only focuses on theadministrative aspects of her job, but is very involved with the students. The school is able to accomodate the needs of all my children, including one his is learning disabled. As far as private school's go this one does a phenomenal job meeting the different needs of students. The parent involvement in this school is overwhelming, and there is a strong sense of school pride, by the faculty, students, and their families.

The quality of academic programs at this school is outstanding. This school constantly raises the bar with every passing year. The principal, Dr. Davis is phenomenal and has genuine interest in the children. She knows all of the children in school by name and is vested in each child. Music and Art are emphasized along with all of the core subjects. The sports programs are by far one of the best and very well organized. There is strong parent participation both in education, sports and the school as a whole. This is not just a school and parish but a tight knit community as well. Would highly recommend this school.

We expected an above average school when we enrolled our child, but found an outstanding school constantly raising its standards under a highly qualified administration and faculty. Solid core subjects and impressive music and art education. Many athletic opportunites. Strong supportive school and parish community. If you want a well rounded, nurturing educational environment to ensure the success of your child, all within a great neighborhood, this is it.
