I am a happy parent. My kids love the school and are very much challenged with the school work and high grading scale. The school events are well attended and the families are very supportive. Having religion in school has been wonderful because it reinforces family values that everyone is practicing. It is a school that fulfills the mental, physical, and spiritual elements that are so important in all our lives. I would definitely recommend St. Albert the Great School to anyone looking for a higher education and strong moral values.
This is a great school. Yes, there is a high student/teacher ratio, but it is what used to be the norm in public schools. The teachers care deeply about the students--not only about their academic subject but about each child as a whole person. The teachers certainly expect the student to do the work (not mommy) and expect the student to be responsible for themselves, but they don't expect the students to teach themselves in a vacuum. Textbooks are good supportive material, but a textbook by itself is not enough. A good teacher will not "teach from the textbook" if that means reading it to the kids in class, but will use the textbook to support the lessons that the teacher actually teaches in class. I have raised concerns with the administration, including the principal. I have always had my concerns addressed. I did not always get the answer I wanted, but the concerns were not ignored. There is a difference. Overall, the teaching staff is excellent and they work well together and support one another. Overall, the atmosphere of the school, shown by both students and staff, is a happy one, and is Christian in attitude and action.
Terrible school, very high teacher/student ratio, teachers short tempered (probably stressed from high student ratio), 1 teacher in particular just "chats" with kids during class, doesn't teach from text book/expects kids to learn material themselves, I really could go on.... complaints to principle are not addressed.
My son has flourished in this academic environment. Children are challenged and supported to be their very best. I love that values are a part of everyday conversation in the classroom and that the children are taught what it means to be a good person as well as a good student! I am always so impressed with the number of parents who attend every single event!
I have enjoyed being a teacher at St. Alberts for the last 6 of my 20 year teaching career. I love teaching Religion and being able to talk about God every day. Mrs. Povey
the school stresses you there are some pretty strict rules that dont seem nescessary its alot of work the students are nice but the faculty...
My family is so much happier since leaving this school and it is definitely not worth paying for!
St. Albert's is a small school full of students, faculty, and families who answer the call to serve God and our community including those in need at other schools, the less fortunate, elderly, infants, our soldiers, people in times of disaster, and in many other ways. There are different beliefs and different ways to serve, but at St. Albert's there is a hope to educate beyond the grade. By the way a student needs a 94-100 for an A, so achedemics do matter. 4 star rating, because there is always room to grow and improve, 5 stars because the school is open to doing it.
This is our son's 5th year at St. Albert's! The teachers work closely with the parents, the parents all work together, and the children are in a wonderful and safe environment.
This wonderful school starts at Kindergarden through 8th grade. The school excels at academics and also emphasizes good citizenship, manners, and serving God and others.
student teacher ratio is very high 30 or 35:1...teachers sometimes dont get their work done and are unable to help the students so parents come to volunteer to help the teachers. then you have to pay expensive monthly tuition.
Saint Alberts is a good school, you will learn a lot there. But be warned you will be exposing your kids to alot of stuff you may not want them to know. I am a student there and I learned more 'bad stuff' there than I learned in 2 years.
I love St. Alberts, it's the greatest school, most of the teachers went to St. Albert's which is awesome. But I wish we could have freedom to wear our own shoes, or color our hair. Our Junior High is really cool and we always have fun! It's really cool. plus the sports are always fun and exciting!
My kids are entering their 3rd year at St. Albert's & we wouldn't consider sending them anywhere else. The education is excellent, the security gives us peace of mind, the uniforms eliminates any peer pressure, it's just a great overall experience.
St. Albert's school is guided through care-filled discipline and catholic values. Security comes with predictability and predictability comes through consistency. Limits and consequences coupled with teaching produces confident children who have a sense of control over their lives. The faculty of St. Albert's School provide the limts, teaching and consequences.
This school is not a good school at all very mean teachers and stress kids to much. They are very picky about long hair, belts, shirts untucked, and ect. Not a student friendly school.
It's a small, friendly, and parent-involved school. The principal, Mr. Perry, is wonderful! I highly recommend this school.
