Excellent school! My children are receiving a wonderful education. Very tight-knit, family atmosphere. Caring and dedicated staff. Many extra curricular events and fun family activities.

I love Saint Jeromes! I went here as well as my sisters and all of us have sent our children here. Saint Jerome's taught me to be caring and respectful to others. It also stregnthened my faith and relationship with God. I left this school with many friendships and things my teachers have taught me and I recomend this school to anyone looking for their child to have a great education. Saint Jerome students graduate with a fine outlook on life and are eager learners. Great school, definently worth it. CYO is great too, many activities!

This school is really bad and the leadership is even worse! The teachers are inadequate at teaching and disrespectful to children and to parents ! The new pastor is no better! Enroll your child in another school in the area if you want them to learn and be treated fairly and respectfully. I regret sending my kids here! It was a waste of my money . I should have sent them to a charter school!

Great school! The students from St. Jerome are among the top ten percent of our area high schools. The students are well prepared for the transition to high school.

St. Jerome School is academically wonderful; teachers have been here over 30 years. It's like a big family brought together by a great pastor. St. Jerome's kids are always in the top 10% of their class in high school.

I am a graduate of Saint Jerome and I have chosen to send my daughters to a place that I trust. The family atmosphere is amazing. There are multiple afterschool activities.

The bottom line is, good principals don't come cheap and this Pastor will never pay.Some of the tenured teachers are excellent, the majority are abissmal.This school is adequate for the average student but totally lacking for any child with special needs or any child who is extremely bright and needs challenges. The staff and the teachers have a circle the wagons mentality any time a parent has an issue or a problem, with the problems going unresolved the majority of the time.After school activities and CYO athletics are a good diversion to the inadequacies of the school

I was not satisfied with the teacher to student ratio. The school is not very organized and staff became uncooperative and hostile when questioned or suggestions were made. Extracurricular activities were dismal.

I am also a previous student who is currently studying to become a teacher. I can honestly say that my decision to become an educator is directly linked to my experience at Saint Jerome. Wonderful caring Pastor, qualified faculty, and a great administration!

I'm not a parent, I'm a student who has graduated, and let me tell you. Those were the best 8 years of my life. I wish I could do It all over again.
