I attended this school myself and from what I have heard little has changed. The other comments that mention this school is cliquey, and limiting in terms of creativity are completely true. I went on attending a public highschool post St. Bede and felt incredibly unprepared for individual thinking and learning required to succeed. Many of the teachers I remember were not qualified to be teaching the subjects that they taught and hardly ever engaging. The classrooms felt like boxes, and lessons went on similarly to lectures, followed by a regurgitation of information with little attention paid to each individual student's education. Frankly I might be biased because of how much more Pittsburgh public schools offered me after St. Bede, but if you want to send your child to a private institution in hopes of broadening their minds and curiosity, send them to a better school.

I would definitely agree. One of school's stronger points is integrity, honesty and fairness to students.

My children have had a wonderful experience for the past six years at this school. The small classroom size allows teachers to have a relationship with students.

The schools ability to create a community spirit in all the kids!!

It has a high standard, is inclusive, active in the community and consistently wins the Future Cities award in DC, and other honors. Mostly, thought, the teachers have a special quality that inspires the students to learn. And a pastor and parish who support them.

Our son absolutely loves St. Bede. The community is fantastic, and the children are taught responsibility for themselves, and well as to the world around them. It is a warm and nurturing environment, as well as academically challenging.

St Bede School has a long and lasting tradition of quality education. I was once a student there and am now a parent of children who attended St Bede. They have an excellent Principal in charge of the school and the parents are involved in maintaining the quality of the school and extracurricular activities.

My dd hated St. Bede School. Parent s and students are so clicky. Your child (and you) will be excluded if your parents and grandparents didn t attend the school. There is no diversity in this school. The school has a very snobby and hoity-toity atmosphere. The teachers are so bad. The learning environment is poor. My dd was told not to like robots or cars but to play with the kitchen toys.

We've had an excellent overall experience at St Bede. All our kids have flourished there and those who have already moved on to high school have been well prepared.
