  • i have attended this school since kindergarten and i believe this school is very good. I'm in 8th grade right now. Yes, we do have many rules but the teachers and students are very nice. The teachers are very good and understanding. I LOVE this school. It does cost a pretty penny but it is worth it

  • I went to this school from K-6, and was starting to get really upset by the students. By 6th grade, most of my friends had ditched me, and i found that only about 2 people out of 31 weren't completely stuck up and superficial, even though outside of the school everyone else seemed to be nice. It seemed it was only my class that was mean, everyone else was very sweet, and made very faithful and loyal friends.
    Another flaw I saw was the strict dress code. The teachers always made you tuck in your shirts, even if your $50 pants you have had for 3 years were squishing you to death and you had to go into the bathroom and take them off, then tuck your shirt in and wriggle back into them. You got detention if your socks were an inch too sort, and in my class, headbands that weren't blue were strictly prohibited. Red, yellow, pink, patterned, or other brightly colored shoes were against the rules, along with slip-ons because they were too "dangerous". No nail polish or make-up, not even lip gloss, not to mention a million other rules that seemed to have no point. We occasionally had a free dress day, with another page of rules to go with it, telling us what colors weren't allowed, no logos, no pictures, no writing, no hats, no sunglasses, no purses, and it costs $1 per color.
    I did like the assemblies and the after school dance programs, and the fact that the teachers seemed to really care about the students. the EDC was okay, but I hated going there. I didn't like the fact that we had PE in the hottest part of the day and while our food was still digesting.
    There was a lot of parent participation and events, and when one of the staff members left we had a party for her.
    This would be a nice catholic private school to send your kid to, but they will hate the rules and ugly uniforms.
    Most of the reviews I see pay attention only to the teachers, education, and programs, but I think I'm the only one who said it from an actual student who is currently attending's perspective.
    Keep in mind of what your kid thinks of the school before sending them to it, because I was miserable there. Plus it wasn't cheap!
