this school is horrible. i took all of my children out of that school because they dont care about the children that go here. they only care if you donate money, only then will they be kind.
Probably the" WORST" parochial grammar school on Staten Island ! Grammar school is the foundation that leads to higher goals and achievement! This school has a weak leader in its PRINCIPAL and ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL who have just given away the school to its "MOTHERS GUILD" new term for the ages. When people no longer see the value in a parochial school education they will and have gone elsewhere!! Growing up the PRIEST, PRINCIPAL and FACUTLY ran the school parent interaction was present but with boundries and the line wasn't crossed!! The schools did good, teachers taught in the classroom and outside as a guiding force in the lives of their students! This has been replaced here with parents many of whom have no educational background, business background and basically run the school! NO PTA OR FORUM TO DISCUSS ISSUES OR FINANCES! The school is in debt, and nickel and dime fund raising has taken away from education! a four day school week not in line with what is mandated by the CHURCH is in place as is its ridiculous FEES that dont even add up PAPER FEE, PLAYGROUND FEE,BOOK FEE! There are excellent choices this is not one of them TO MANY QUESTIONS NEED TO BE ANSWERED AND WILL NOT BE
I have been a parent for 16 yrs. My youngest of three is graduating this year. The parents and the school are great. Everyone is always there to help.
It's a great school and the children receive a wonderful education and training for their future.
I find it extremely odd that so many "rave" reviews were written on the same days and day after day during the month of May 2010, leads one to believe that the same person or persons may be writing those reviews. In my opinion, BSS is lacking in many, many areas. The parent involvement is high, but mainly for fundraising purposes. Little is done for the children or to improve the education which is in desperate need of improvement. The principal is spineless and makes her living appeasing people. There are a number of teachers with terrible reputations and nothing is done to improve that. The parents are very cliquish which ultimately effects the children's ability to make friends. The parents on power trips ultimately run the school. Would not recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a nurturing environment or a quality education.
I like this school because it really works wiht the kids, they learn a lot and they are on top of their assigments.
My son walks in smiling and leaves smiling every single day!! Of course I feel he is also gatting a wonderful education.
So happy that my husband and I chose BSS for our childrens education. We are very happy there. Go Titans!
all my children went to Blessed Sacrament and I always found everyone there to be friendly and helpful. My children had a wonderful education and made many friends.
We are so happy we chose BSS. It is such a sense of community and we love that everyone looks out for and supports each other
Blessed Sacrament School provides an awesome atmosphere for an excellent Catholic values based acadamic education in a warm and nurturing environment.
Its a warm and loving atmosphere where my kids have the opportunity to learn and thrive in a safe environment.
Having put four sons through BSS and now having 3 grandchildren in the school I am well aware of the great things BSS has to offer.
School has great teachers and staff who care about the students education and there future.
Blessed Sacrament School has the most caring teachers and students. It is more like a family. The parents show concern not only for their children but others as well. We would not consider another school, BSS is the best!
I love the spirit of the school as it embodies an environment of high academic achievement and a close knit community in one!
After 11 years living on Staten Island and attended Blessed Sacrament, I see all the caring parishioners in this community. I have never seen a school where all the school along with the parish organizations work together so well. The Teachers are great and keep kids motivated and in a safe environment.
In the 10 years that I have been a Blessed Sacrament, Staten Island, Parishioner, we have been part of a caring parish where children come first. From our pastor to the custodians, everyone embodies a spirit of community that you can only find in a Catholic school. Many positive changes have occurred over the years from extracurricular activities to technology. I have never seen a school where all the school along with the parish organizations work together so well. The teachers genuinely have the students' best interest at heart.
