Great school. Many oppurtunities for chldren. Very reasonably priced also. Teachers and staff very helpful and caring. Children are taught respect and get along well ith their peers. Would recommend to anyone in the Parma area looking for a GREAT school.
My child has attended this school for a couple of years. The teachers really go out of their way to help students. They are caring and in contact with us when need be. This year the school is starting a great deal of after school clubs and activities such as spelling bees, math contests, a spring play, chess club, which are open to most grades. There are other clubs for the jr high students too. I am surprised that there is not more parent involvement. The PTU meetings have 30 or so attendees but there should be a lot more since this school has more than 300 kids. They should raise the tutition or require parent participate hours.
The administration needs a serious makeover plus for being a school of religion, there is a strong lack of values! Also, one questions the poor academics in this institution. Children are very lacking in math and science as well.
I am a new teacher in this school. I can tell you personally that it is a wonderful school with an excellent atmosphere of community and service. It still has an Ursuline Sister as the Principal. How many other Catholic Schools do you know that can claim this? There are also other sisters working in the school. Come visit the school and see the quality of education. The cost is worth it when you compare it to what is happening in many other schools that charge even more.
