Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
There is rampant bullying in this school. If bullying is a concern of yours- whether you suspect your child is a bully, or that your child is a victim of bullying- this school will enable the bullies, and will leave the victims in the wind.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The principal will not speak with you unless you are a favorite of hers. She is not accessible and she will palm everything off on her Assistant and her Parent Coordinator, who are also inaccessible and have visibly cringed at me when I have expressed concern. Absolutely appalling and egregiously unprofessional.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
There is a community of "favorites" here. If you are one of the in people, it doesn't matter how much of a terror your child is, they will always be favored and never disciplined or corrected. When you're not favored, your child will be tortured by the children who are, and there is no recourse because the staff is disgusting about these issues. They do these BS anti-bullying things that mean nothing because bullying is rampant in this school.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
My son is has ASD, and nobody seems to have the patience to deal with him when he gets bored. Im mystified by how this people are in this profession. My son is very high functioning at that, he's not even needy, he's just a pain when he isn't motivated and gets bored once in a while. All they do is complain at me as if I can control that from home.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
The homework has just been busy work. Sort of unnecessary really.




- a
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.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
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.



- a
Such a great School. Amazing teachers and great Principal. Can't wish any better for my kids. God Job. Thank you very much!


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
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



- a
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.
