Wow! I disagree with everything the previous parent posted on Sept 5th. The current principal is totally effective! St. Rita provides iPads for all our Jr. High students to use FOR THE YEAR and teachers who incorporate this technology into the curriculum. My children get personal attention and educational plans to help them succeed. The current principal has positioned our school and its resources to meet the needs of students as they get ready for high school and college. St. Rita offers so much to these students! Last year, my daughter was having trouble with another student and the principal and teacher arranged for an interventionist to mediate between the two girls ON THE VERY DAY OF THE INCIDENT. Now that's swift and specialized attention! The girls were taught ways of dealing with conflict and hurt feelings in a safe and controlled environment. I'm not sure why the previous post is so full of anger? Lastly, my husband is a CYO coach and favoritism has NOTHING to do with it. These parents volunteer their time and efforts SELFLESSLY and want only to teach kids the rules of fairness and good sportsmanship. I have never witnessed what the below posted parent has described.

Horrible school. Once the assistant principle took over, it has become a disgrace. Catholic Values? When I go to pick up our three children who attend the school, the principle had the nerve to have her back turned to me the entire time and I know she saw me because she had the secretary call my kids from their classrooms. I wish this was it but it gets much worse. The bullying is horrible and the way it is handled is why the school lost 8 children three years ago. They have no sympathy when we asked why our child was allowed to be bullied and even told we were lying about it (which is why other families left). We decided to teach our children to learn how to deal with issues and stick it out, but it is getting unbearable. The volunteer coaches are a joke because it's basically a popularity contest and deserving and knowledgable coaches are told to stay out of it and that kids play for fun and not to learn fundamentals. Very weird school and I think we are at wits end with these so called Catholics.

If you are considering St. Rita's School for your children, you will find that it is one of the best Catholic schools in the Cleveland area. I have 3 children attending the school and we are very pleased with the academics. Furthermore, it is a wonderful atmosphere with the best teachers, parents and students.
