Great school, caring staff couldn't be happier.

My son came to the school in third grade and stayed till 7th. In the beginning of 7th grade, everything went downhill. A teacher had left who was really the only one what knew what to do. So they had three upper grade teachers that didn't know how to do anything. But the big reason was an incident with a broken Fitbit watch. A child's Fitbit was broken by another student and they decided that they were banned. But the children didn't like this. So they continued to wear them, and they also wrote emails to the principal asking to lift the ban. The principal ignored all the emails. But more were sent. My son and all the other students say she barged into the room. Interrupting all the lessons, threatening to call the police if nobody told her who sent her the emails. So the children stood up and confessed. The emails were nice, but started to get a little rude. But there was this one fake email that the kids made to vent with. It said all these mean things about her but it was never sent to her. It was displayed through a group chat and all the students could see it. But this one student felt guilty for not showing it. And was under pressure thinking he would be arrested. So he showed her. And she freaked out. She called all the parents in for a meeting and made these packets saying that the emails there were what were sent to her. But she included the fake email, which wasn't actually sent to her. So after the suspension. My son toured another school, and the day after I sent him with a bag to get all his things. I was done with that school. But the one thing that angered me is that there was one boy. So nice and friendly. And his mom was the same way. He was put into the group chat. But he had a broken phone. So he didn't know about the chat. And when he found out, he couldn't even get himself out of it. He told the teachers that he wasn't involved. But they said that he should find better friends. And they suspended him too!! Do not send your children here. They have a nice Catholic education but no better than ccd. And it is slowly falling apart. Bad choice

I am the parent of a middle schooler here at St James, my daughter has been very pleased with the education this school has given her. The teachers there are very understanding and everyone knows each other due to the small class sizes. Although these classes are hard and might not be the average standards for middle school, the teachers prepare the kids very well for high school. Over all it's a hard school but it's defiantly one where many memories are made, along with a good education.

My two daughters attend this school and I could not be more pleased with their academic achievement. As a teacher in a nearby district, I am only looking for the best quality education for my children. Saint James the Apostle goes above and beyond across the curriculum, with knowledgeable and friendly faculty.

My child started Kindergarten last year and by the end of the year was reading at a 1st grade level. In addition, my child is doing 2nd grade math. Excellent school!

My two oldest children have graduated from St. James and my other three are still attending. I am very satisfied with the academics that are taught at the school. The teachers, from grades pre-k - 8th, all put their heart and soul into their teaching. They care so much about every student learning. They are very open and approachable from the parent or the student. The faculty also volunteers to plan and run after-school events during the year. I also cannot say enough about the Christian values that are taught to the children. As in any school, there are conflicts that arise between the students, but there is always a faculty member available to help out. The priests also teach Religion lessons and have been available when my children needed to speak to them. I would recommend St. James to anyone and believe it is a top notch school.
