Went to this school a number of years ago, would not recommend it to anyone. This school protects bullies and lets cliques of gossiping moms thrive, at the expense of many of the kids who go here. Parents don't pay tuition for our kids to get bullied because some mothers think this is "Mean Girls" and don't know how to raise their kids the right way. The administration is spineless and won't stand up to the culture of bullying that exists here... almost as spineless as the parents who protect their bully children because they're too weak to change the way they parent them. An abysmal learning environment for any child, this school also does a terrible job of upholding the values of the Catholic church.

I graduated a few years ago from Blessed Sacrament. BSS was such a wonderful foundation for me when I went to high school. Some of the teachers were wonderful, definitely not all of them, but you will find that with any school. I feel that the staff and administration are very caring. My experience here was extraordinary and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

The asst principle lacks concern about bulling. The principal is week, if your child isn't into sports they won't be welcomed by faculty or staff. The teacher made my son lie and write a paper on how he made friends, after he said he didn't .

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.
