In response to the post who felt he was snubbed because he was not Catholic... I will tell you from personal experience that while there are not many non Catholics...we are Protestant,as well, & were welcomed with open arms. Each year's teachers are told in advance that there may be something my child won't be participating in & each teacher has dealt with it exactly as I would have expected. I'm sorry you felt religion was the issue. I think it's the fact that our principal, while nice, has very little leadership. The task of calling you back probably went to our overworked staff.
As a father of two girls who receive 4 out of 4 in all areas of behavior and minimum 3 out of 4 in school work, I found my experience with St. Charles to be less than expected. I met with the principal and spoke about entering my girls into their school. As a scholar at Columbia University, education and behavior are mandatory for my children. My wife is a School Psychologist and we were ready to sign our girls up to start at St. Charles with our son and younger daughter to follow. We never received the expected call from the principal for our girls' interview. The principal was inviting at first, but after learning that we were a protestant family, she become dismissive and rude. I was shocked by the change in attitude and not receiving a follow-up call reconfirmed my experience. I believe that they made the right choice because there is no way I would allow my children to be exposed to a learned culture of dislike or intolerance towards others.
Excellent school. My two sons graduated from St. Charles in 2002 and 2003. The faculty provided an excellent foundation of learning, which continued on to H.S., College, and now their professional jobs.
I see how wonderfully rounded my niece is becoming while attending this school. She is excited to attend daily ( that's half the battle in education today)
I love St. Charles because the teachers are great and both my daughters are getting an excellent education.
The teachers and principal contribute to a very conducive atmosphere.
The classes are amoung the smallest on staten Island. The children stay with the same class since K to 8 so the feel like a family.
The teachers are very caring and teach the kids a lot. They really take the time to shape our next generations - Thanks for all they do
