  • I am a former student, and I have only had ONE good thing happen to me from this school, getting my best friend.
    At this school, I was harassed not only by the students, but by the teachers and even the former principal! I know he's the former principal, because students who stayed, claimed that he was caught stealing money from the school, and that there is no principal now, that two grades have been combined into one because they could not afford to pay another teacher.
    Anyways, like most religious schools, there are people who think that they are 'mightier than thou' and think that differences are "evil".
    I went through a rough period of my life at this school, I had just begun my first steps to become an adolescent, and I was in the wacky 'who am I' stage. I was a bit of a "nutter butter", and i'd expect elders who are around teenagers of this stage to be more understanding, but if you think you're something that the school is against, they'll let you know that you are not welcome at that school, and "you are only kept here because we need your tuition". The moment i heard that, I quit the school, there was no way in "Hell" (as I've come to believe that school is) that i'd stay there.
    All-in-all, avoid this school, the lessons learned here are unacceptable, the close-mindedness of the students, parents and faculty is just negatively outstanding (but what do you expect from such a corrupted "catholic" school)
    If you are a Catholic, I'd advise you stay AWAY from this school, if you're not catholic, and attend this school, you are in for a hell of a guilt-trip and discriminative ride.

  • This review is Based on the experience for the School year 2005-2007

    The School is poorly run. Books are rented not purchased at a cost equivalent to that of a new book. The books are old and in poor condition due to years of use. Computers are scarce at the school and security is very lapsed on the ones available. The receptionist of the school seems to have more authority than the teachers. There is no presence of a principal on campus. The teachers are poorly paid and are generally unhappy with their jobs and they let their students know this. Their policies on school fund raising are changed mid term and the parents are expected to comply without question. The children are promised field trips and monies are collected for that purpose but the promise is not always met. The money is not returned. Their field trips are not always of an educational nature.

    The parents that send their children to this school are very supportive of the school. This is understandable since the other elementary schools are very rough environments. The school does offer a safer setting than those in the area.

    Catholic Education is important for many parents and such education should be a good experience for the children. This type of education is lost at this school due to their lack of organization and clearly defined rules and regulations. The school has been in danger of closing at different points during 2005-2007 due to declining enrollment.

    The school should shutdown and regroup with clear and definite goals. With better organization the school would be a much better place for children and their staff.
