St. Clement's Parish School from what I heard use to be a really good school but when my child was there, it was the most unchristian environment I had ever been involved in starting from the principal down to one of the teachers and even some parents. They clearly favorite children whose parents have quite a bit of money, and unfairly targets a child to the point where his or her self esteem is so low they end up being scarred for several years. The education and especially the social environment in which the child is placed in is not worth the tuition. Several parents have pulled their children out of the school. The administration needs a serious overhaul and some of the teachers need to be reminded to treat all parents equally.

I highly recommend this school ONCE THIS PRINCIPAL IS GONE. My son has been going to this school for 2 years now. Great teachers. Horrible principal. He does not seem to follow religious beliefs and morals he promotes to the parents nor care about whats best for the children. The district needs make some changes ASAP to go back to how great St. Clement's was before.

This school was wonderfull until the new principle came and now kids can't got to the restroom during class because he thinks you smoke

It is not the same as it was before think twice before sending your kid here the only good thing is that the teachers are great

This school used to be amazing. However once a new principal came everything went downhill. Now students can't go to the restroom unless class is over. Also students have to endure the new principal speak very morning for 30 minutes AFTER chapel, which delays classes. On top of this the food is absolutely horrible and extremely unhealthy. The teachers are very good, which is a plus. The newest facility, the CFE, is very good but the older buildings are falling apart. No heating or cooling, only some electricity outlets work, and the internet is almost never working. But, the biggest problem in this school is that there is favoritism. Teachers will target only some students and not the others. Even the principal biased and if some thing happens in the school such as bullying he won't do anything at all. All he does is sit there and smile and say just go talk to him. He needs to enforce the rules he has made. If a students parent makes large donations to the school and the student does something he won't get in trouble. I'm sorry but if I will be paying $10,000 a year to send my kid to school, I want something much better than St.Clements.

My three daughters have been in St Clement's since 2005, oldest just graduated last year. As parents, my husband and I love St. Clement's School as a whole: teachers and staff refer to each student by their name, parents are very involved with school activities to implement changes to make the school better. Feel welcome to learn more about St Clement's achievements and be part of it. You will not regret paying for a great environment for your kids to grow in learning with God and meeting excellent people that will be friends for life!!!

Unfortunately, this school has changed and has become much worse since the new head of school arrived. Children of parents with money are favored over children from families where both parents work to make ends meet. The head of the Lower School is a woman who is biased, disrespectful, and rude. Some of the teachers (in both schools) are very burned out; some single out children unfairly for punishment. Please think twice about sending your child here...It is not the same school it was years ago.

The best school in El Paso without a doubt. Here Teachers care about each single student and they know them. Academically is challenging and they have an excellent enrichment program.

We are military and have been impressed by this school, the teachers, staff and the warm welcome from the parents. My son felt a part of this community from day one and we feel that the education is the best that we've experienced during my son's years in elementary school. He's now in the third grade and we look forward to next year at St. Clements.

My son has been a student at St. Clement's since kindergarten, and he loves it. His academic skills are by far higher than all of his friends attending other schools in El Paso. The school environment is great, teachers are great and motivating. I don't think there's another school in El Paso that compares to St. Clement's.. we're going to have a hard when he completes his 8t grade.

Great school, great teachers (low turn over), and a great environment. Academics are challenging; Spanish; orchestra (starting in 5th grade); new science lab and upper school (middle school). This school prepares its students for future academic challenges.

This is the best school I have ever been to. It teaches you how to behave and it gives you a wonderful education. I have never felt so safe in my life knowing that everyone around me loves me and wants the best for me.

St. Clement's is not only a school founded by tradition but also high excellence. The tuition might be higher than any other school in El Paso, but the education is rewarding. I would motivate any parent to make such investment in their children's education. Any graduating student from St. Clement's doesn't have trouble in high school, and are always outstanding students. St. Clement's is and will continue to be the best school in El Paso Texas.

I am very pleased with St. Clement's school. It offers all the activities of a public school, high academic standards and a christian education that the children enjoy. Spanish is part of the curriculum for all grades.

St. Mark's School is a warm and loving environment for children and families alike. They offer a variety of enrichment programs like: computers, music and spanish! The overall curriculm is enhanced by the unique touch of each teacher. It is exactly the type of environment the spawns learning and discovery in children, while giving a great moral foundation on which to succeed.

This is a great environment for learning. Teachers care not only for their own students, but those of other grade levels. It is a big family. Everyone helps each other. They strive for excellance and get it. Teachers have freedom to teach and do an excellant job! Students put out high quality work. Gain a great sense of self confidence through a variety of school responsibilities. They have great pride in their school and teachers.
