My granddaughter is getting a great education at Most Precious Blood School!!
MPB feels like an extension to my family. My son is in third grade now, going to fourth. My daughter is finishing pre-k and loving her teachers! We are very happy being part of this loving community!
Great faculty and teachers! Wonderful learning environment for children.
We have two kids in this school and we are very happy with the program,with the staff and the most important, discipline.... We do recommend this school,and we love it.......
My daughter attends first grade and my son is enrolled in Mommy & Me. This school is great. Communication with the teachers is wonderful. They are always available and ready to answer any questions. My daughter has learned so much this year and she loves school. They teach discipline and respect for others. In our Mommy & Me class I have met the nicest parents. I highly recommend this school. We love it.
My son attended the preK program here this past year and I was very impressed. First, the teachers are wonderful and patient and they have willingly helped out on any issues my son has had. The children learn so much through hands on experimentation and observation of the real world. The school is very diverse and we had a very good group of kids and parents who were very interested in their children's experience and stayed very involved and helped eachother out. I really don't have anything bad to say.
My daughter is in Kindergarten. She loves the school. The teacher and the teacher's assistant are wonderful. They encourage creativity, using their imagination and respect for others. The school also enforces a strong academic environment. The principal and her staff are accessible, concerned, and qualified. I have enrolled my daughter for first grade. I highly recommend this school.
Both of my children attend this school. I am happy with the academics and the environment. They do get homework and are tested on a regular basis. I have to disagree with that one review that said that the tutition is raised every few months -that is not true! All of the teachers that I have met so far are accomodating and will listen to your concerns during the entire school year, not just during report card time. I have had an open communication with all of the teachers that my children have had so far. I highly recommed this school!
I am so proud of Most Precious Blood School. One of our eighth graders won a diocesan-wide essay contest about the blessings of Christmas. The grand prize was tickets to the annual Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular for her family and classmates. She wrote a beautiful essay detailing the true meaning of Christmas and the importance of giving to others. Thanks to the fine teachers at Most Precious Blood she learned the skills necessary to be a wonderful writer. There she also was taught the true meaning of Christmas and about all its blessings. Congratulations!
I have my kid in this school and I am not very happy about it. I strongly believe that teaching methods and equipment are outdated, more fittig middle ages than 21st century. Students are required to memorize, not to conclude by themselves, teaching 'ex cathedra method'. Information are given only with a report cards. With every new year and new teacher there are new snack rules. I am for discipline but not to interfere with child's creativity. Students are afraid of some teachers. That may be why each year they enroll less and less students. Whole school looks dark and sad. More children laughter would definitely help but this is strictly discouraged. I am seriously considering moving my child to some other school.
I am a sevetnh grader who just got out of MPB last year. I left this school because the teachers treat you all like a group, they dont give enough homework, the test are easy, and Mrs. Demaio does not know how to lead a school. The school is failing terribly. Every few months they raise the tution, and many teachers are quitting their jobs and the school refuses to hire new ones. There used to be 3 classses for every grade now there are 2 or only one. The school has went downhill since Mr. Bisconie has left. There are no sports at all. There is only one boys basketball team and there are absoulutley no girls sports. The teachers in the classes are teaching material that is for little kids. When i was in 6th grade they taught place value for a month. That is taught in 1st grade.
MPB is a very organized school. It's not perfect, but they strive to be one. Faculty and staff are very concerned with students welfare, academic and spiritual needs.
To the parent who says' the big downfall is homework, there is none', I have to disagree with her 100 percent. My daughter gets tons of homework, projects, tests to study for and bookreports. She tells me she has no life now, but in the long run, it will pay off. I just love MPB School, I can see my daughter is learning so much.
MPB is a great elementary school. My two boys graduated few years ago and I've a daughter attending the school now. Since 1994, I've seen the enrollment drop, but the quality of education has been consistently superb and then some. I strongly disagree with one of the parents who commented that the big downfall is homework. My daughter spends about four hours after school doing her homework assignments, working on projects, writing book reports, and preparing for tests and quizzes. It is a lot of work for a fourth grader, but the hard work will pay off as she advances to the higher grade. All the teachers are very knowledgeable, qualified, and caring. I'm very happy that my children had the opportunity to attend this wonderful school. Kudos to MPB.
I love MPB. Its a clean school, with an excellent environment, and a friendly teaching and admin staff. Principal DiMaio in particular has been very helpful, as my child both fears and respect her. Great school. And its hard to find a good Catholic school in this area.
I graduated from this school a couple years back and I would have to say it may not be an amazing school...you know..top notch boarding-school-like but it still was a great school with amazing teachers who I have come to love to this day. I do have to say that I did not have the current principal as my own at my years at MPB but I had Mr.Biscone who i feel was a much better educator.
As a parent of an MPB student, I have to say that the teachers mean well, but are not well guided by the administration! I'm not a big fan of the principal- I understand that her job is that of an administrator, but she also has to remember that she is first an educator-I don't find her to be very fare with the kids. The big downfall is homework...there is none; kids are expected to always study their classwork, but I believe that there should be at least 30 minutes of homework every night.(My child hardley had any homework at all) I will not register my 2nd child in this school!
This school is absolutely amazing and caters to every need of my child, and all of the children in the most precious blood community!
