St Catherine School
Develops empathy: Strongly disagree

This school discriminates against students who do not fit their mold. The school is full of cliques, to which the staff readily admit.

The principal of this school is extremely abrasive. She is new and it shows. A neighbor inquired about this school for her son who has ADHD - the principal told her he would not be a good fit for the school, without even meeting him or seeing his school records. My daughter struggled socially and the school was no help. Class sizes are very large - my daughter's 2nd grade class had 28 students. Not worth the money.

I currently have a first grader and a pre-schooler in St. Catherine's. My children are very different from one another but they both enjoy the school, activities, teachers, staff, and curriculum. The school work is meaningful and rigorous enough without being overly time-consuming. There is a strong sense of community that pervades the school and all feel welcomed whether they are a member of the parish or not. Our family enjoys the company of the other families that attend the school and the school does a fantastic job bringing everyone together through year-round activities and functions. We are thrilled to have discovered this jewel in NE Seattle and look forward to our children attending many happy years at St. Catherine School.

The wasl and itbs scores are great. It is a great community to belong to! There are lots of sports to choose from for every grade and there is art, PE, and music. Somtimes there are free after-school drama or science workshops.

My son loves this school! We have moved to the east side, but continue to come here. I can't say enough good things about the school and community as a whole. It's amazing, and for us, well worth the drive!

This school is experiencing a renewal. It has a highly involved parent community, and excellent teachers and administration. Preschool, kindergarten and middle school fill up early.
