The administration of this school is unprofessional and has no idea how to inspire the leadership they are supposed to be teaching. The current principle is not someone you want directing your child's education. Great teachers but poor leadership. I would look elsewhere.

My son has attended Carondelet Leadership Academy since its opening 4 years ago. The teachers that he has had are excellent in quality. They have taken the time to nurture him to the best student he can be. Ms. Apryll Mendez has been an extraordinary principal since changing hands. My son has a medical condition that makes learning a little more difficult for him. Ms. Mendez has always made sure that she checks on him and encourages him when he is down. The school is such a tight community of excellent educators and excellent students.

The new principal at the school for the 2013-14 year is not at all principal material. She doesn't contact parents back when requested. She will not disclose incidents that have happened at the school this year that involved police in multiple occasions even to parents of the children that were involved. The staff couldn't get the children to be quit threw the whole Christmas Concert. This school is a mess now and the new principal is doing nothing to fix it. She told us that if you don't like it then find another school because this is a choice school. Some principal. A student heard her say this to us and said to her mother, "So does that mean they don't care about us?" Principal Apryll L. Mendez should be fired! She can't handle this school. Parents are extremely mad at the administation this year. They all talk about it in front of the school when they release for the day. They never release on time ever. The system the have for release is a mess. Parent are not happy with this school just ask them!

The staff at this school should really be ashamed at themselves for the amount of gossip they do. Be thankful you are not involved, even though that statement is a true shame. PTO needs to be fully revised.

My son attends CLA and I love the fact that his speech therapist works with CLA only. He gets the one on one work that he needs and the staff is great with keeping me updated with his progress. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is there is no notice or notes sent home about pto. I wanted to be involved but am finding it hard.

This school was good at the beginning (and there is still some great staff) but there has been a lot of teacher turnover and the leadership has deteriorated (teacher turnover likely related to leadership deterioration). There has also been a lot of student turnover. It's a step up from city schools but at times not by much. I've encountered far better leadership at one of the worst city schools. Look elsewhere...

Posted March 25, 2011

This school is a prayer answered. My son came from STL City Public Schools which were a complete nightmare. All the staff at CLA have a geniune care for the children's well being and education. My son receives special ed services and the staff is wonderful. I highly recommend this school to any and everyone!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
