Save your money on this school ! It is simply aweful ! I know Catholic schools have never been leaders in education - they aare even behind public in academics- but being Catholic, my wife and I thought we would ive it a shot for our children. Boy were we wrong. The academics are poor, the class sizes are too big (25 per classroom), and religion is shoved down your throat every minute ! And to top it off, if you are not Catholic, you are looked as 'below' a Cathoic. Save your money and send your kids to public or do what I did and send your kids to the few excellent (non-Catholic) private schools in the area !
Adequate academic standards, but a school heavily based on favoritism, families who are involved in the parish, who give money to the parish or school do receive preferential treatment. The principal is weak in disciplinary standards, persistent recurring problems with disruptive students; again punishment is different for preferred families. Long term consequences of behavior are not considered, doing more harm to the student when they leave this school.
