My kid went to kindergarden here. I am a non-christin and non white. I found that my kid was being treated racially by the teachers, that includes the class teacher. Apart from that, they give home some tickets or the other, always asking money, money and more money. If we r not able to sell the tickets, we had to bear the cost of the tickets, which is like 1000$. They say their school is a affordable christian education, I would disagree as they are truly christian(I have no issue over it), but affordable is very misleading. I wish they would tell everything forehand even before one tries to enroll their kid in this school. But most of all, my experience with one of the kindergarden teacher is very bad, and hope no other parent comes to this situation. My kids currently goes to public school now and I think things are going in the right direction. I wanted to tell my opinon as the kindergarden enrollment starts this month and any one looking for reviews knows what they are going to face.
I' am an alumni at this school. Besides the terrible education and the lack of understanding from the staff, this school has the worst staff and it's not even worth paying for. Here is an example, There was a new math teacher named Mrs. Huffcut who arrived about 2 years ago I believe. My grade as well as other students lowered greatly, and every parent complained. The principal Ms. Erath refused to speak of the situation. Until now, she is still instructing children and I keep hearing from other students that she is still a terrible teacher. Thank goodness though for my public school math teacher that I was able to understand what I missed in middle school. The principal is rude, as well as the English teacher who has been known to threaten and try to interfere in the lives of other students.
I'm a alumni from Saint James, and I learned a lot from Saint James, they get kids ready for the future, and high school. They got me ready for High school, and they get tons of others ready to. Music is great, Spanish is good, Art is amazing they tell you facts, and information about some of the most famous art. Gym is great, it is a workout that will make you sweat, but not over work you to exhaustion, and Library has fun activities, for you to do. Saint James is like a family to me, and is continues to grow every year a kid enrolls there. So I'm glad I was enrolled there, I feel like everyone there is part of my family.
My daughter was studying in PreK at St James school in this year.she learned a lot.i should thank her teacher Mrs Beres for that.She is an Excellent Teacher.
My daughter has been at St. James since 1st grade. At first I felt the school was not very challenging academically however the new principal has really improved the quality of the academics in the school. My son has just entered kindergarten and I'm very happy with his progress. St. James is a great school and we're very happy with our decision to send our children there.
Still quite early to say but so far so good. Here my kids are well adjustedin no time. We were given a full tour of the school & we were able to also meet and greet the teachers. Parents who have been there since thier kids were in pre k said the school has improved tremendously for the better. The pricnipal is very much involved and intouch with teachers, parents and students needs. back to school night was great! we were able to talk to the teachers of our 2 sons and made sure this school year we were all going to be all on the same page as to what will be expected of us and how we can get together to help our child be on top of things, responsible and a good character to society :) our sons are challenged & eager to learn and become better students.
I am currently a student at Saint James. Acedemics get a 9/10. Specials such as Spanish has tremendously improved. It used to be a joke where you would go to class and be expected to speak fluent spanish and you wouldn't learn anything. The new teacher as of last year teaches you at your own pace. We use Rosetta Stone. Music Class is absolutely amazing! The teacher is such a professional. Gym is good. Library is fun because we do projects. The teachers are very good. They teach you things that you need to be prepared for. All of the regular and specials teachers show tons of effort. The principal has made a lot of changes, but none bad so far. Saint James has tons of fun after-school activities.Overall this is a great school and I would recommend it to anyone!
This school is at best average in academics. Mathematics is very weak. Students leave here unprepared for high school mathematics.Language Arts is one of the few bright spots. It challenges students and moves them to develop critical thinking skills. The use of technology in the past by staff and students has been very limited. There is a new principal who seems to be very forward thinking and has begun some very needed changes. She has brought in some new staff and started moving teachers to use technology in lessons. While this is a step in the right direction, St. James has a long way to go.
I am an alumni of saint james...acedemics are 7/10..many activites.....spanish class is a joke....computers is not....
In talking to other parents in the area academics are good. Lots of extracurricular activities and the sports are spectacular. Parent involvent is huge and I love it!!!!
Academics are okay. Great variety of extracurricular activities. The parent involvement is very high, and in some respects too high.
