This school like many others may have it's issues, however, during the 8 years we have been a part of St. Margaret we feel like it's been a family. We have been able to express our concerns to the teachers and the principal when necessary and they have been receptive, helpful and effective. The teachers are great. They are dedicated, motivated, and truly have a concern for our children. The Parent's Association is great also, they work tirelessly with the principal with fundraising events that benefit the school and it's goals. As said earlier, no school is perfect, but, as a whole this is a wonderful school if you're looking for a "family" type environment where the children's education and their welfare are a priority. Our child has loved this school and has made we think lifetime friends.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
They try their best. The school has zero- tolerance with bullying.


Develops character: Agree


- a
The school does try to reinforce these values. Of course this starts in the home.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Teachers are great. They are receptive to any issues you may have.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The homework has been effective. The good thing is the teachers are approachable and receptive if one has an issue with the homework, quizzes, exams, etc.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
There are many examples where the student reporting a bullying incident is chastised and the bullying is ignored.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some of the teachers are excellent, unfortunately more are poor than outstanding. The outstanding teachers were hired by the previous principal.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
There are teachers who don't know how to budget class time therefore give excessive (3+ hours a night) homework.




- a
The school is substandard. If you want to pay for an education for your child that they won't get, this is the school. The principal is ineffective and fuels separation of teachers and parents. He tells you what you want to hear then does not follow through. He hires people to teach that are not trained for the position. There are also some very mean children who are allowed to get away with their nasty bullying behavior.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Only the one teacher is TOTALLY ineffective and the sole cause of all the bad experiences this school has been hit with. The other teacher needs to reestablish herself in a Posh school in Connecticut where they give fab spa days and getaways for teacher appreciation. Other than those two all the other teachers are AWESOME CAPABLE INTELLIGENT WELL EDUCATED AND HAPPY TO PASS THE KNOWELEDGE TO THE CHILDREN not compare them to other well to do children or talk about their last job as if they would rather be there than teaching our students. C'est La Vie to this school year
