St. James offers an average education to children from PK to 8th grade. There are no honors or g/t programs for any elementary-level students, nor are there any competition-level student activities. Music and art programs have been started, but they are very early. Additionally, there is no foreign language program. The sports program is very big at St. James - students in elementary school usually join through the CYO program, and middle schoolers are very active in the sports program offered through the school. Parental involvement is huge at St. James - tuition is reduced for 'partcipating' families. These families must spend 20 hours in service to the school and must assist with all functions. Religion is also very important. All students are given a solid Catholic background.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
