So far so good. Just prepare our children for the best! If students are achieving high grades it should be recognized and headed accordingly. Like that the school is small. No favorites regardless of PTA participation for working mothers.

My kids went to K and spent about 1.5 hours every day on homework. They actually liked doing it. Thanks to their teacher Ms Sutterlin.

Too much favoritism and the staff covers each others mistakes. The administrators say one thing and do anothet and lie to parents. If you are not part of the PTA click your situation is helpless

Parents and school administrators are complete snobs and cover up all the mistakes the school makes. Not the school for you if you want your child to get a proper education. Typical clicky environment filled with bored housewives and a large gossip pool. Sending my child to St. Clares.

Teachers can be rude and administration is no help. Students are made to feel helpless non motivated by teachers. Many discipline problems that affect good students negatively. Very disappointed in the school and staff not what my family and I expected.

The school is amazing. I do not approve of the new time changes. I hope this is changed.

PS 8 is great school for learning but horrible environment, which also has an impact on our children. Principal and staff can be nasty at times. Kids rude and undisciplined. There are even moms who argue and threaten to physically fight each other at school events and on facebook. We're transferring back to our old school!
