I have been sending my 3 children here for about 11 years. this school has gone down hill since Mr Mazzella retired as principle, he was a caring & helpful principle. Mrs fiche is a horrible principle, she is uncaring to parents as well as children. this school only cares about money & not the education of children. I finally pulled my child out of this school & put him in PS 11, it was the best decision I ever made, wish I did it sooner. He is now getting a great education from a staff that is caring to everyone in this school.

Simply stating that there needs to be much change in this school. Starting with the principle. They are very unorganized especially with parent communications on trips, events and discipline. When it comes to asking for money or funds for the school there quick to ask for it but don't make any changes to benefit the school or it's environment. We're us all the money there raising going? Even though there a small school were everyone knows one another they have big problems especially academically. These children need to be prepared for there future. This is not there main focus. Change is needed especially with the change of times

I attended Saint Ann's from 1st grade until 8th grade when I graduated in 1962. It was a really good school for learning. I made many good friends that I am always wondering about how they are and what they are doing today. We had a great Basketball team back then!

My sisters and I all attended St. Ann's and so did our children at some point. It's a small school and very family oriented. The teachers and staff were the best and some of them are still there. You can always stop there for an event and see somone you went to school with. It's a great feeling and many wonderful memories were made there.

I am a former student of St.Ann's. I must say the curiculum is great and the teachers are nice but the children are stuck up and the parents are the same. The after school activities can be improved by getting a bigger variety other than basketball and baseball/softball. Also, although the teachers are nice, some of them have just stayed there way to long. Teachers should let the students have the ability to learn and study more of a topic taught then learn a topic one day and have a test on it the next.

the pre-school seems to be wonderful. my child is thrilled and looking forward to going each day. when i was a kid growing up in a Catholic school I didn't get any homework and never challenged. so hopefully the kids won't be too overwhelmed when they reach higher grades yet be challenged.

This school is about taking notes and having a test 2 days later. That children in this school have a test almost everyday, when ask why they said we need the marks. The kids are not learning like this. They take notes and sent home to study them for a test.

It really is ashame that this school has such negative reviews. I just started my child in this school and I am uncomfortable having my child remian in this school. Course overload is not the only way to edcucate our students. Change is important and that sounds like a good idea with this school. Parent should have more input in their childrens education. Please value others opinions....

Thank goodness this year is over I have never had so much work to do. (yes the parent). So much take home work & projects I had to do a big part of it. The teachers are not that nice and really don't care much for the children's needs.I wish I had a choice my kids are almost done.

The preschool is focused and organized. The children learn one letter and one number each day and there are crafts as well as circle time. The teachers are competent however the teacher's assistants are not patient with the children and are sometimes too strict. It is forgotten that their charges are merely 3 or 4 years old.

This school could be improved greatly. They need to have some young, new teachers. Teachers in this school never leave. They use the same materials, tests and assignments year after year. The principal is very closed minded and is not open to any suggestions.Some of the teachers are not qualified. If you are a parent and hang around long enough, they become part of the staff.This school leaves much to be desired.
