I agree with this statement however it is not possible as a parent to understand all sides of a story. Our limited experience has shown that they do not shy away from dealing with the issue head on with compassion and attentiveness.
We spent a collective 12 years at St. Timothy's with two children. We knew we made a good decision but as time went by we realized we made a great decision. Not only do they have a strong academic program that prepared our children for high school, but the environment and the support by teachers, staff and fellow parents made it that more enriching. My daughter who is in college, reflects very fondly on her experience and visits the campus whenever she can. She calls several of the teachers "good friends" who she stays in contact with today. I applaud the work they have done and only wish they had a high school option!
We just knew when we walked in the door that St. Timothy's was the right school for us! From the nurturing environment to the developmentally appropriate curriculum, all three of our children are thriving here. They receive individualized attention as well as an outstanding education. The teachers and administration promote kindness, accountability, and responsibility in all aspects of the students' lives. Thank you!
My daughter, as well as other children have been bullied by children at this school. The headmaster has been contacted on numerous occasions by myself and other parents and because of status my child has had to endure this continued abuse. Private schools are not held to the same accountability under the law as public schools are to protect our child. No matter how much money we pay to educate our child it is priceless for her to be in a safe environment.
We also invested hundreds of dollars in after school tutoring for our daughter after school and found out she was still very behind. We are glad to be out of this environment!!
My children are very different creatures and they are each made to feel special, loved and challenged daily. I did exhaustive research on school options and we knew from our first visit that STS was the only choice for our family.
Don't send your child here!!!! This school promotes bullying by punishing the child being bullied!! The teachers are careless and do not pay attention to the situation. Academics are weak at best. Please for the safety of your child find another school.
