St James Catholic School5

I have two children that attend this school. I love it! I am able to check in at the office and go the class rooms at almost anytime. Any time that I have had a question or concern, I can go directly to the teachers, and I have found the teachers and staff are very responsive. There are computer labs and smart boards and all the other modern tools there. The things I love best is that the school is smaller, the kids get great attention that is full of love and there is a very strong sense of community within the school.. The school holds the parents accountable as well, you as a parent are expected to be involved in the school occasionally, help on playground, etc.. I live in Madison school district and don't consider that a desirable option. I would rather spend my money on my kids education then other things. I would recommend this school to everyone, if I didn't think it was the best I certainly would not send my own children there. Hope this helps.
My twins attend the Pre-K program. We are not Catholic, but feel right at home. The Pre-K program has the perfect mix of academics and free play. I looked at other private schools in the area and found St. James to offer the best learning environment and activities for my kids. They will be attending St. James through 8th grade!
I have been very impressed and happy with everything this school has to offer. I love the diversity (especially for a Catholic school). The values and principles are very high. No one is excluded regardless of religous back ground.
Outstanding school with diversity and academic excellence. Band program for grades 4-8, sports begin in grade 5. Christmas program is best in the city. Parentl involvement in very strong. Enrollment increases in each of past five years.
