I simply can't say enough good things about Saint Ignatius! They offer both enrichment and programs for individual learning needs. Their focus is on the whole child, and my children continue to excel academically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually! Thank you Saint I!
I have 7 children and so far three have graduated from this school, while 3 are currently enrolled, and I still have one to send through the school. Because I keep sending my children to this school, I can't give it any better compliments. We don't ask for special teachers and we have never had a bad one. Some of my children are very smart, and some of my children have special needs. They are all taken care of professionally. The catholic education is the most important part of their education and it is well represented. Parent involvement at all levels is very much the normal. It isn't all the same people doing everything. We moved from out of town and everyone welcomed us like we were old friends. The parish is just as good as the school. We didn't know anything about the school when we moved here and we wouldn't move to another place.
I went to St. Ignatius from K-8th grade. I LOVED this school so much. I cried when I graduated from the 8th grade. The teachers treat you like you're their own child. I am in the process of becoming a teacher because they made such a positive influence in my life. From the office ladies who greeted me with a smile every day, to the lunch ladies who knew all the students by name, even the janitors, are such an amazing team of people who truly love their jobs. I cannot stress enough how well I was prepared for high school. While some students found classes difficult (in high school), I found it to be more of a review. Their emphasis on service in the community, at home, and even at school made me realize how fortunate and blessed I am. I still go back to St. Ignatius to volunteer and visit because it is such a great atmosphere. If you want your child to grow into a well-rounded adult, I highly suggest St. Ignatius.
St. Ignatius is a wonderful school that uses multi-sensory strategies throughout the school to engage the children so that they enjoy learning. They learn is a developmentally appropriate manner so that they can incorporate what they learn for future development too. It is a wonderful faith-based school that reinforces all that we teach at home as far as our catholic faith is concerned. The teachers are top-notch and are continually learning themselves. I feel so blessed to be part of the St. Ignatius community.
Saint Ignatius rooms are bright and cheerful. The physical plant is optimal for setting a great mood for learning. It is impressive that they have so many extra-curricular programs. The wide variety gives each student a chance to find what is a good match for them. You don't have to be an athlete or the smartest kid to find your place at Saint Ignatius. There is a place for everyone.
I love Saint 's. I believe that the teachers and administration truly care about their students.
I have three children enrolled at this school - I have one child on a service plan (learning issues, autism spectrum), as well as two above average students. My children have thrived in this school community. In fact, we moved the child on the service plan from a high rated public school to St I's, and this child receives more assistance and services at St I's! All of my children are challenged - no matter what level they are on. And if you have a concern (and as a parent you voice the concern!), teachers and staff are quick to come up with solutions. There is a wide range of activities available for students after school - from sports, to bowling, to chess club, scouts, the list goes on and on. This creates a wide range of opportunities for all children. I think Mrs Hudepohl (who teaches fifth grade math) - sums up St I's very well "just when I think it can't get any better, it does!" St I's offers what so many other schools do not: foreign language program, a large band program, high test scores, AND caring teachers and staff!
Saint Ignatius provides a solid foundation of learning for kids in grades K-8. This school addresses "the whole person." By that I mean not just the academic and cognitive development of children, but also an emphasis on the spiritual, physical, wellness and social development of their students. Each child at Saint Ignatius is provided an opportunity to develop themselves as a well rounded individual in preparation for the real world. The sense of community and level of community and parent involvement is unsurpassed.
My children and now my grandchildren attend St. Ignatius Loyola. It is a great school! They truly look at each child as an individual and provide quality education. Their teaching practices are up to date and data driven. The atmosphere is friendly and supportive. We always feel welcome at St. I's!
As an administrator at St. Ignatius Loyola, I'd like to share my point of view. St. I's has an excellent teaching staff who are dedicated and are constantly updating their own teaching methods and practices. Students receive individualized instruction as needed for them to be successful. Our mission is to prepare our students for high school as well as life in general. Well-rounded, educated, happy, Catholic children are the intended goal for our graduates.
I have finally decided to write this after many years of disappointment. As a Catholic Christian parent I do not recommend the school. The majority of parents only socialize with people of their same status, so unless you have money you feel very unwelcome. Also, most families do not attend mass, which makes this school seem like it's "an alternative school for rich parents that do not want to send their child to local public schools" rather than a school to get a catholic education and to learn christian morals. The education is below average. Most teachers do not communicate regularly with parents on their child's progress. Also some students suffer because classrooms are very overcrowded. Athletics are also ran by the parents with money and are very biased. Another issue is that everything from children sports/practices, meetings, & other organizations always involve drinking. I could write more, but I think this gives a good assessment of what the community is like and how poorly the church and school are ran.
Terrible school, terrible principal, terrible educational environment. Spent a year at that school, will never return.
I used to love this school and even rave to fellow friends about it, but these past couple of years have been terrible! Thier are no individualized attention and would not recommend this school at all! Please do your research before even considering. If I could I would rate this school an F!
I send both of my kids to this school and they have ADHD. They get personalized programs and a lot of individual help. I cannot express how grateful I am for all the help that they give my kids. There is a lot of communication between parents and teachers which is a big help.
As a parent of a former student, I can say that I am terribly disappointed in this school. If your child has a learning disability like ADD or ADHD, you can consider them a lost cause. There is no extra help with these students and nobody seems to care. The principal is wishy washy with his discipline and parent communication. I pulled my child out of this school-Best decision I have ever made. I will not be sending any of my younger children there either.
St. Ignatius has high acaemic standards and will prepare a child for high school well. However, if your child has special needs, such as ADD, his may not be the school for your child. St. Ignatius is a good school for the typical or high-achieving student.
Children are nurtured and given clear direction for support. The educational offerings are consistenly monitored and developed. The staff is an outstanding representation of educators and community leaders. The staff dedication and commitment to excellence is unparralleled. A trully inspirational environment for spiritual and educational development.
