My children have been at this school for two years. The quality of the academic education is excellent. The teachers we've had are dedicated and caring -- going beyond what is required. The principal and administration is accessible and responsive. It's a great value for a private school education.
Our school strives to provide the best atmosphere possible for the spiritual, emotional and intellectual growth of our students. Our teachers are dedicated to this school mission and motivated by their own deep personal concern for each child in class. Our Catholic faith based academics provide the strong foundation needed to achieve success in high school, college, and career. Ninety-seven percent of Catholic school students graduate college!
My children have been attending this school for 8 years, including preschool. I have experience with the public schools in the area and I am very happy that I chose St Anne's this time around.. The teachers and principal are caring but firm, and they are not afraid to make the children take responsibility for their mistakes. You may not always agree with one teacher or the principal, but that does not mean the school is a failure. You will find that anywhere you go in life.....If you want a school that has the ability to reinforce Catholic/Christian values and is allowed to do that, choose St. Anne's.
My children are students at St Anne's and we have had a very positive experience thus far. The teachers have been wonderful! We are very happy with the principal, staff and faculty!
My children have attended this school since they were in pre-school and I fully intend on keeping them at the school until they graduate(8th grade). The Principal is wonderful. She is a great leader and she cares for the children, and they care for her. The parents have a lot of opportunities to volunteer for special events with the children. I feel the school gives the children a well rounded faith and academic education including extras like art,music, gym, C.Y.O sports, Family Nights (reading adventure night, movie night), talent show, etc.
Great school. Teachers genuinely care about the students. The other children and families are wonderful.
This school is the worst! The principal is sub-standard at best and does a bad job in all areas of academics & students growth. I concur with the other negative comments. Don't waste your money, there are some really good schools in the area, just do your research.
This school is an awesome school! The principal (yes, i know how to spell the word correctly) does a very good job guiding our students in the areas of academics, faith, and overall growth. I am not sure where the negative comments generate from; have these parents been in the school to volunteer and get to know the staff and the internal operations of this school?
I do not recommend this school in any way shape or form. I have three children and since the present principle this school and drastically changed and not for the better. I have had many issues on many levels that go unacknowledged unless they are looking for a donation or need something. 5 years ago I would and did praise this school now I'm ashamed of it. This is the last year for my children. Schools like this one give catholic schools a bad name and explain why so many are closing!!!!!!!
I agree that this principal is bad for the school. She is forcing out the more seasoned, caring teachers by forbiding them to challenge or discipline students. She encourages students to be her "friends" and often sides with them against teachers. She only seems to care about good grades and not education. I pulled my daughter out of the school because of this.
This school has changed since present Principal came. Students are given many "freedoms" by Principal......teachers are not able to challenge or discipline students. Students know they can "get away " with almost anything!
I would not recommend this school with the current staff in place. The upper grade teachers should retire, they lack enthusiam, and current methods of teaching.
This was one of the top schools in the Lehigh Valley until about 3 or 4 years ago. My son graduated in 2008. He worked hard and had good grades. My daughter is in 7th grade and gets good grades with doing little to no work. The principal allows students to complain to her about homework assignments, demerits or anything that they don't like. THIS IS WRONG. The students are not learning and it seems that teachers wont push them.
St. Anne's is an average school - not the worst but not the best. The school is fine academically, it is really lacking in extra activitities such as music, art, and drama clubs. There are a lot of different sport programs.The principal is great, most of the teachers are okay, just like any other school there are a few that are horrible and a few that are exceptional. The students are being taught the Catholic Religion, but they are not being taught to be Christian to others, which is a big disappointment. They are being taught to be polite to teachers and adults, but they are not being taught to be nice. A lot of the kids are sneaky and mean to one another from kindergarten on up. Most of the teachers do not seem to help foster friendships or help the children feel as though they fit in somewhere.
We have been generally very happy with the school, and especially with the principal, Mrs. Filler.
You couldn't find a better school in the region. The principal makes the students her number one priority.
My son just started the Expolers program (3-4 yrs). So I like it and he seems to like it, although I would like more information about my childs day from the teachers. We use the after care program too and if you are coming from a regular daycare setting, beware, it will not be what you are expecting. It really it just a place the kids go to wait for school to start or for parents to pick up. They do home work, watch tv, play video games. It took a while for me to get used to my son coming home telling me he had watched this dvd and that dvd!
I am a St. Anne's Alumni and I believe the school excels in preparing students for High School and beyond. Teachers care and continue to care about the student's progress, not just overall test scores.
I value the Catholic education that I received and have great memories of the friends I made while at St Anne's.
