the students for the most part are great, with the exception of some bullies that the principal tolerates. can't speak much about the teachers because they after being there for a year or 2 at most. it is truly sad of what has been happening in the school lately and the principal using her authority for personal gain. she's done it before but now it is more obvious. everyone is disappointed with her but we have to keep the fake smile. we are counting down the days for her to leave so we can have a true Christian leader. people don't even go to church because of the bad taste we all have from the school. thank God for friends and parents and some staff members because we lift each other up. we can not wait for the principal to leave!!!
I'd like to thank Mrs. Rosie Swartwood the school's head secretary who without her there wouldn't be a school!!! She does EVERYTHING in there!!!!! Mrs. Swartwood is compassionate, kind, sweet, helpful nurturing nature!!! She has a warm heart and just a beautiful person!!!!! She has the role of the nurse, parent, secretary, mother, she might as well be the principal!!!!
The teachers are very effective! They do ALL THE WORK!!! Including the principal's work!!! The teachers work very hard!!! They give up so much of their time!!!! After school tutoring with no pay, lunch duty, after school, bus duty,, may even have to give up their prep periods because there are no substitutes to take over a class when a teacher is absent or to meetings!!
The homework load is just fine.. The tests are like every other day!!! That's too much!! I don't know any place that wastes more paper than at Fatima!! There should be more hands on teaching than paper based test!!!
It depends on the child and the status of the parent! If the parent supports the school financially then the child it well liked... For example: A parent donated computers to the school one year.. Their child was treated like royalty!!
Omg what a school how could anyone not like it. We compared all the other private and catholic schools around the area and it is the best. The tuition is reasonable and they don't have any extra fees. Once my kids got there lady year I was wondering if what I heard about the school was true. I am happy it is. They really emphasize the academics and every teacher stays to help the kids who need extra help after school. Also so many of the teachers run clubs and sports for the kids. The put on great performances. Best of all we just received the scores for the state testing and old scored higher than the NY schools and even higher than the catholic schools. I am so happy my kids are back again this year. Thank you
