This was our first year at St Aloysius and it's been such a positive experience . All the staff are helpful kind people . It is a wonderful school. The children are so nice to each other. My son loves going to school everyday and comes out of school with a big smile. Such kind and caring staff. The school is extremely safe . If you are looking for an excellent school I highly recommend St Aloysius.

All three of my children have attended St. Aloysius School in Jackson. Our experience there as a family has been one of being welcomed into the school community. My children have had a great academic and spiritual learning experience there. I would highly recommend this school to new families.

My children have attended this school since kindergarten ( my oldest is in 5th). We have continuously been happy with their education, both academically and spiritually. The staff is loving and committed to the children they teach and care for. It is a big school, with a small feeling. I highly recommend meeting our principal and seeing for yourself! worth every penny!

Strong sense of community, caring faculty and staff, very responsive to any concern or issue. Strong emphasis on character, moral development and service to others. Students care about each other. Academically very good. My son is in his second year here and has thrived. I was a public school teacher and I can say without reservation St. Al's is an excellent choice if you want good academics, strong community and character building. You do not see any of the disruptive behavior, bullying etc that goes on in public schools here. Highly recommended.

If you are looking for an excellent elementary school in Jackson, send your children to St. Al's. Both of mine go here and the expense is a sacrifice but it is worth it. They are taught self-discipline, respect, strong educational skills, reading and math skills are started in PreK/K, they are taught to respect each other and there is a strong sense of service cultivated in the children. My kids love the structure and the caring dedicated teachers. Can't say enough good things..... This is how school should be.

St. Aloysius School provides an education that is absolutely tailored to each child. The teachers there are extremely competent and creative and model differentiated learning on a daily basis. Upon entering high school, my child was very well prepared and had no problems. The Middle School teachers provide very challenging lessons and the work is not easy. However, the benefits are wonderful. This is a great school!

I have been at this school for 10 years and have been extremely satisfied. It has prepared my eldest child for one of the best high schools in the state. My other two children are still in the school and will be there till they go on to high school. I have never had any problems with any of the teachers or staff. Every year they build on their already strong academic curriculum as well as sports and clubs. I am a practicing Catholic and appreciate the freedom of religious expression that you have with a Catholic school. I would not want my children in an environment where God and Christmas was considered an embarassment. Also, I appreciate the dress code and emphasis manners and respect. St. Aloysius is a very good school.

My child attended St. Al's for 3 years. There are some good things about this school. It's a small community, parents are involved and helpful. Some teachers are excellent. There are teachers and staff that do not model Christian behaivior ane that behavior is not addressed. If a parent brings an issue to the administration that parent becomes the problem, the child is handled punitively and the issue ignored. The Principal although she has excellent skills chooses not to get involved in any problem solving unless pressed. Too many teachers are not interested in or capable of diversified teaching so any child not middle of the road is left behind. There are no gifted programs to speak of and if your child needs help in any area that becomes another problem. Computers are not emphasized & that puts these children at a distinct disadvantage.

St. Aloysius provides an enviroment that nutures their students. St. Aloysius teaches their students how to be good citizens and believe in themselves. At the same time the children learn in an academically challanging atmosphere.

I have 2 children at St. Als., and I have to say that I am very happy with the quality of education they are receiving. I do feel though that there should be more opportunities for students who would like to take advanced courses such as in math or sciences. At times, my son completes his math homework in less than 15 minute (he's in 5th grade) and he complains that it's too easy. He also mentions that some of his friends have also felt the same. I am aware that catholic schools do not have the same resources as public schools, but students who excel in certain subject s/b given the opportunity to do more challenging problems...In conclusion, St. Als has given my children an environment where they have grown both spiritually and academically. It is a great school where my kids wake up and look forward to attending.

St. Aloysius is a wonderful school that has provided our children with a first rate education and, equally important allowed them to grow in thier Catholic faith. The administration from Principle O'Conner to Fr. Scott care deeply about the childern and have made it a superb learning environment. You truely feel part of a community and a family at St. Al's. We really love this school. Mrs Arfuso is a teriffic teacher and has been patient when required yet challenges them as well.
