Responsive to parents' concerns is prompt.Teachers are friendly.The new principal is engaging. He manages pre-k - 12. This is one area I'd like to see changed. He is responsive to parental concerns, accepts feedback, & works w/ parents. The high school has had a 100% graduation rate for at least 10 years. The test scores are high. You can ask the school for them.The discipline method in the elementary school is consistent. There's +/- reinforcement, and realistic consequences. Teachers listen. Real science is taught. Non-Catholics are expected to learn & participate in religion classes, & attend weekly mass.Kids w/ speech challenges can meet w/a therapist from the public schools at Bergan.There's no busing available (except for school events.)The onsite after school care program is affordable, and managed by school staff. The playground is cool. K-12 are divided into houses. Each house is named for a saint. They do weekly activities, have competitions between houses, & complete service projects.The elementary school has a chess club. Computer lab is awesome. All of the classrooms use smart boards.
