My son moved from CyFair schools to St. Jerome for many reasons. His grades have gone from C's and D's to A's and B's. He loves the new friends he has made, as well as the encouraging and loving teachers and staff. I couldn't have found a better school!

St. Jerome offers a wonderful family atmosphere. The teachers truly care for the children and work hard to keep their classes challenging and engaging. The students are respectful and happy. My sister moved my nephew and niece here from public school last fall and they have both flourished academically and socially at St. Jerome. I love the diversity of families in this school. It doesn't have the "upper crust" stigma that many private schools can have that can be intimidating to some families and students that just want a good education and Catholic teaching. St. Jerome welcomes everyone with open arms and the students are ALL loved, respected and taught the same. I have truly been blessed to have the opportunity to teach in this school and to work with such an outstanding administration. I look forward to having my own child join the school next year.

St. Jerome is a Christian based, family oriented amazing school. We truly feel at home, loved and welcomed. The staff and other parents are so friendly and helpful. The curriculum, attention to our needs and extra curricular activities are just a few of the reasons we came here 4 years ago and have been overjoyed with our choice every single day!

After a very bad experience at another school St. Jerome has been really Heaven sent. My kids love the school, I love the school and my kids are flourishing here. The teachers have a lot of experience and treat the kids with kindness and respect while helping us, the parents, educate and form our kids academically and socially. I love that my kids receive the Spiritual- Religious base that I did not know how to give them in the most natural every day way. They really enjoy it! I can not be happier that my kids attend St. Jerome, and they will for several years to come.

At first I was hesitant about sending my children to a private school. I wanted my children to grow up in America with all it's colors and cultures. Aside from the feeling of family I have at this school my favorite thing is it's diversity. Highly recommend.

My child recently graduated 8th grade from St. Jerome Catholic School and had attended since 15 months old. From the ECC (Early Childhood Center) all the way through Junior High, my child had great experiences. Tons of learning opportunities, weekly mass, field trips, socials and lifelong friendships. Being an alumni myself, I would not have chosen any other school than SJS!

St Jerome is a great school. The teachers and staff are friendly and helpful - like family. Both of my daughters excelled in their classes and gained a strong work ethic which they took with them to high school. More importantly, the Catholic indoctrination they received is something they will carry with them always. I highly recommend St Jerome.

St. Jerome Catholic School provides a safe environment with strong academics and nurturing teachers. The school truly is a community. My sons attend and I know they are well cared for by all, not just their current year teachers. Other parents, other staff, other faculty look out for each child. All have a sense of responsibility for promoting a culture of caring.

Another school year completed and another happy student (and parents). We love it here. Principal truly cares about each of her students and works one-on-one with each family as necessary to ensure a collaborative and enriching environment. Kiddo has the peanut allergy too and I truly feel safe sending him to school here. Every staff member is trained on the Epipen and each are diligent on snacks. I truly feel this is a family of families working together to educate our next generation.

I absolutely love this school for my kids. The teachers and parents are very much involved in the school and community. The curriculum for all ages is age appropriate and also challenges the students. When comparing the curriculum of public schools with St Jerome's I really see the difference and how advanced my children are. I am also a 2nd generation Bulldog and my children absolutely love the idea that some of the teachers have been there since I was a kid!

My daughter has been at St. Jerome since Kindergarten and now she is in eighth grade her last year at the school. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a good spiritual, catholic foundation to be with your child throughout their lifetime. I never had a problem since my daughter has been there and now we must move on to high school. St. Jerome is an excellent school and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This was our first year at St. J and we were welcomed & made to feel at home. My son has enjoyed it very much. Working with the teachers and after care providers has made it a place where he was given the chance to grow in this new environment. Small class sizes and teacher availability was a plus! Excellent communication by the school office, PTO and committees. I wish there were more just like it! Not all sports are offered for all ages, but we were able to supplement with sports outside of school. Teachers/staff really do care about behavior and learning, not just passing tests and are conscientious and invovled with the children.
