Develops character: Strongly disagree

Extreme racism against anyone not Irish- or Italian-American, wrapped in Catholic self-righteousness. It's really ridiculous. I'm speaking out today as a warning to all parents.

I find the faculty and staff to one of the best I have come across. The teachers are truly concerned for all students. I do not find there is any racism at all. Issues with students are addressed as quickly as possible. Student behavior is also addressed on an as needed basis. Any student from pre-K through 8th can walk those halls and his name is known by all. It is a great learning environment and a very encouraging environment. This school has more of a family feeling to it.

I find the faculty to be one of the best I have come across. The teachers do show concern for each and every student. Concerns are addressed immediately and appropriately. The student body is very diverse representing many cultures and I do not see students treated differently. Any student can walk the halls of that school and is addressed by his name. It's like a family and one that I support and highly recommend.

I find the faculty to be knowledgeable, cooperative, and encouraging. The students get along very well, one can see Christian values lived out by through their interactions with one another, and service trips they perform to help ones in need. The students body is less than 200, therefore the faculty and staff know nearly every student by name. Iona provides a wonderful learning environment.

The teachers and sports programs at Iona Lower School are fantastic. However, the leadership is lacking and fails to address problems of bullying and disruptive classroom behavior. We are finding instances where students of families that donate to the school are not being punished for bad behavior. It is unfortunate that ineffectual leadership is diminishing Iona Lower School in the eyes of some parents. With changes at the top, this institution could become a jewel of a school.

Horrible school, did not have a pleasant experience at all, very desperate school regarding admissions. The school will accept anyone to make up for the lack of funding.

We have had our son here since Pre-K and have had nothing but good experiences. The teachers are responsive and have kept us well informed about our son's progress and needs. Most of the facilities have recently been upgraded. The social environment is excellent and the boys are taught important values.

I interned at Iona Grammar School and my experience there was fantastic. The students all get along so well with each other. They also seem to all have a very well established rapport with all of their teachers which makes for a better learning environment. 5 stars to Iona.

This is a school in new rochelle. They are the Gaels. Was that 15 words?

Ditto review of April. As one parent observed last year the kindergarten staff are wonderful. However, afterwards, the staff are more interested in their egos and paycheck than in your child. The textbooks are mediocre.. Not worth ANY tuition! Parents have been pulling out their children.
