Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The school has protected citizens and an uneven discipline policy. We had a known behavior issue in a grade level. One kid rotated through the boys and picked whose turn it was to belittle that week (or successive weeks). On occasion, he rallied a few peers to publicly exclude a kid by getting everybody to leave a lunch table as soon a particular kid sat down. A number of parents brought this to the administration’s attention multiple times but nothing ever changed from year to year. Of course, it was well known this child’s family contributed large sums to the school's annual fund.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
The school has a reading specialist (not learning) and, this year, a math specialist who teaches in the middle school. The school does not have the expertise to test, diagnose or develop an IEP.


Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
School leadership spruced up the facilities which needed a facelift. Leadership has not been effective at retaining or building enrollment.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
The politically correct culture thrives at St Luke’s. As long as your family shares the exact same values as the administration then everything is fine. Don’t expect to pay $19,000 for a “Christian environment” and get any type of protection from age inappropriate over sharing and a seedy popular culture.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
For the most part, the teachers are very well intentioned educators however there are situations where the classes are simply too small and offer a poor learning dynamic. St Luke’s continues to utilize a standardized test not recognized by peer schools, which means we did not become aware of any deficiencies until it was time to transfer.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
The homework load is uneven from year to year. Some years, not much assigned and other years it was piled on 3-4 days a week. I could never figure out why the homework expectations were so inconsistent.



- a
The school’s enrollment dropped by over 100 kids since Tom McLaughlin joined 3 years ago and enrollment sits at 230 students. A St Luke’s parent/school board member claimed this Great Schools website months ago and yet the enrollment data presented is totally inaccurate. The school site monitor tends to remove negative commentary so read it until the school censures.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
I don't really see that there is bullying, but I know the school deals very effectively with disagreements between students.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
We as PARENTS also benefit from these characteristics at the school as well. We are invited to attend daily chapel with our kids and when I do, it just gets my day started right-I know my kids have the same benefit. I also find that my kids really care about their peers. It's very loving



- a
We love the culture of the school. It's warm and inclusive, and our family has been welcomed with open arms.
