I love St. Eugene's, its like a family and everyone is welcoming. The principal (Mr. V) knows every child's name and is hands on. I highly recommend this school!

I feel an obligation to state that the principal that the previous reviews have commented on, is no longer with the school. Her replacement, mr. Viteritti, has been wonderful so far. This is my first year at st. Eugene's and my only (negative) comment would be one that specifically refers to the old principal. That said, we are looking ahead to a bright ,future at st. Eugene's!

School principal sets the tone for racism, judgemental and bias to the underprivileged...Farther CVilla is an excellent addition to this school if not for him I would have pulled my children out a long time ago...I am a single mom and worked very hard to put my 2 daughters through catholic school...The principal at this school is judgemental mean and lacks class...If she feels you are below her ..she will try to talk to you like you don't really matter...I was at a point to wher I was going to meet her afterschool and let her see what an overworked underpaid mom from the bronx would do ti her...But my girls graduated went to a great high school and go to top notch colleges on scholarships no thanks to St. Eugenes

I am a graduate of St. Eugene's and began sending my children there but recently took them out of the school because the principal lacks decorum, respect and tack. Sister Raymond would be disappointed to see what this horrible woman has turned St. Eugene's into.

The school would be so much better is the principal were not who she is. I am deeply saddened to see that the leader of a Catholic institution is so lacking in Christian morals and values as this woman. She is ignorant and obnoxious to say the least. If you want the principal of your child's school to be an example for your children I would not recommend you send your child here.

I am a student at SES. The school's education is outstanding. When I speak to other children from different schools I can tell that they aren't getting as good of an education. The students are nice but the bad thing is the principal and teachers. The principal is just outright mean. Some days she just seems like she goes out of her way to yell at people. Most of the teachers are mean but they at least have a semi-good reason , but yet again the principal just ruins the school. She makes you feel like you are evil and have an evil plan about something when some unexpected thing happens. She also blows things out of proportion WAY too much. It is a good education but that is it. Many say that the principal tries to have well disciplined students but it seems she takes her anger out on us.

You are so wrong, All our parents work including the parents who volunteer their time, we have many evening events you can come to and really meet with the other parents, you'll find that they are welcoming, we all enjoy meeting new people.

I have 2 children. One has graduated from St. Eugene's and the other is still attending the school. I agree with some of the comments made by other working parents. It is hard to have coffee with the Principal in the morning and get involed with the day to day school activities. As for coffee with the Principal, it would be a good idea to have some get togethers at night. If you are working, you can't have coffee with her. I do believe parents should be involved in the school activities. Your children will love the fact you are around and involved in there lives. After all, our children are our future. We need to mold our children into respectful adults and I believe St. Eugene's gives the children that foundation.

St. Eugene's is an excellent school to send your child to. Your child is provided with a religious education that you don't get in public schools, and they are disciplined to learn and work hard in all their classes no matter what subject. The teachers in St.Eugene's are of high quality and give their time to teach the children so they can get a good education. Many children in St. Eugene's graduate with scholarships and go onto great high schools.

I'm a student at SES and I'm in the seventh grade. Well the principal is strict but, she can't be nice so people can walk all over her and the school so she has to be strict. At SES you will also receive Reconciliation (2nd gr.), Communion (2nd gr.), and Confirmation (7th gr.). The education is O.K you will learn a lot and it is not true if your not a class mom your child is not popular my parents aren't a class parent and I'm pretty popular. The people there are really friendly. We have a lot of activity and a lot of after school programs. This is a good school, and if I were you I would send my child to SES but that is just me.

I had three children who attended St. Eugene School. All three went on to receive scholarships for Catholic H.S. and Collegte. They received an exceptional fundamental education. The Home School Association provided many and varied assemblies, more than most of the neighboring Catholic elementary schools.

St. Eugene's has always been an outstanding school , both in discipline and in scholarship. In recent years my 4 grandchildren graduated from St. Eugene's and continued to do very well in High school. St. Eugene's students have been awarded many scholarships and essay awards. Mrs. Sullivan, the principal, has maintained good discipline for the past 10 years. I would rate her leadership with 4 stars.

St. Eugene School is one of the top Catholic schools in New York State, with strong acedemic instruction and solid religious education. The Pastor and Associate Pastor provide hands-on direction and oversight to the school to ensure proper academic and religious standards. The sports and extracurricular activities are excellent.

SES is a school that provides children with an opportunity to develop both spiritually and academically. There are high expectations and that is one of the reasons my husband and I chose this school for our children. In addition, the schoolnotes website allows us to see the children's homework, upcoming tests and projects each night. This if very helpful for working parents like me! A call to the teacher or a note is always answered in a timely fashion. My family and I are grateful to the parents who donate their time serving on the Home School Board. They provide our children with memorable experiences from awesome assemblies and the Ragamuffin to book fairs and field days! With the afterschool program, family masses and variety of extracurricular activities (Student Council, kickball, scouts, basketball, baseball, cheerleading and track, etc.) families can be as involved as they would like to be.

This is a great school! The teachers are accessible and are genuinely interested in making sure our children do their best and are well prepared for high school. Every student gets accepted to high school and I am always impressed by how many get scholarships.

This is so true. my son is a student in the 3rd grade and on the basketball team and ive noticed that if you are not involved in everything such as class mom, or PTA, etc. then you are not a 'popular parent'. Your child doesnt get invited for play dates or any other events.. The parent has to be popular for the child to be popular. I thought I was done with school. Im a full time working mom, i cant be everywhere, why should my son suffer for that?? Its true, the working parent is the outcast. In my opinion, this school need s a lot of help.

I do not find that the school is challenging enough for the brighter student. I probably should have looked harder at th public school system, but wanted my child to have the same Catholic upbringing I was blessed with. There is no sense of community for the working parent. We are the outcasts. Working parents have a hard time getting communication time with the teachers. The prinicpal set a morning coffee each month, but unless I am willing to give up some vacation time (which I need for the numerous days off!)to attend them, we are not part of the school community. You volunteer for events that you can schedule for, and feel like the third wheel when you attend a function to help out. You aren't part of the 'club'.

I am a student at SES, and I'm in the seventh grade (I've been going there since kindergarten). Sure the principal is really strict but lately she's been trying to be nicer, which is nice to see. They are also branching out a bit more; they have a Student Service Council and this year they got a National Junior's Honors Society. Gym class is a lot of fun and all of my teachers are a pleasure to be with. I made a lot of friends and I'm on the baskteball team which got new, awesome uniforms. The teachers have high expectations, and some are little unrealistic, but that's okay. All in all, SES is a good school.

My kids love the school and teachers. Not so much the principal, although I just think that's because of what they hear from other kids. I'm hoping that the monthly coffee with the principal, we as parents will be able to get a bit more involved in what goes on and how we can make this a great year for our kids as well as for us.

I attended this school and it was the worst 4 years of my school life. The kids were friendly but I always felt like the teachers and principal hated me. I always felt like the principal would give me these evil stares for no reason. She is very cold and very, very strict.The teachers write down every little thing you do wrong. They wrote me up for asking to go to the bathroom to many times. They assumed I wanted to get out of class and goof around but I had a stomach virus. They play favorites and if you're not one of them, they pick on you and make you feel bad about yourself. I'm so happy in HS but I wish my parents would have chosen a different school for me. Besides meeting great friends, I have no positive experiences. They need to get a new a new principal!
