    "The previous post is correct. The technology program is post-poned a year. The administration will probably blame the parents but it was not thought out or secure. Once again, lack of a clear strategy and support ruins a good opportunity for the kids . If anyone in the diocese or PTO read these, please put heavy consideration in removing all current administration/decision makers. They are not collaborative, welcoming or flexible. Instead they blame the parents for being frustrated. Effective leadership goes a long way in resolving issues. We just don't have that in key positions at STCS. I read in an earlier post that private school is a privilege and it is. But most people that go the private school route are hoping to get a better return on their investment than the families are currently getting here."

    "I'm a bit confused by the last post from the parent excited about the middle school technology electives for the upcoming year. There are no electives in technology for the upcoming year. And, that is a shame. So many children at this school have such talent for technology, speech/debate, math (extreme math), etc. that I am saddened the school has removed such electives, thus no longer allowing students to expand in these areas unless the parents supplement after school. With the ridiculous homework load the students have, after-school activities can be hard to fit in. Art, drama, music and choir are very good electives, but should not be the only electives. The school is not a fine arts school. I hope the administration (even though influx) rethinks its decision on the limitation of electives for the upcoming year."

    "This school performs very well academically and I am extremely excited about the new fine arts and technology electives offered in middle school next year. This school has a wonderful community of very involved parents."

    "I have 2 kids here and have been here a decent while and here are some thoughts. First off, for the money (~$6500) STCS is a pretty good deal on private school education in Austin. Schools like St Andrews, Trinity, St Stephens are 2-3 more. The fact that the principal is leaving is a very good deal. She was very uninspiring, very poor decision maker and the school has gone a bit downhill since she got there (3-4 years ago). There used to be a wait to get into PreK and now they take all comers. As with most schools there are some good and not so good teachers. Some teachers really just seem to rely on worksheets but many are real teachers. Personally I think the homework load is pretty ridiculous. You have the kids in school for 7 hours, and I think you should be able to accomplish everything you need to in those hours. The relationship with the church is a little contentious at times. Father Bill never seems to embrace the school, and it kind of seems like he views it as an inconvenience. Heard some rumors that he might be moving on as well soon which would be a plus. The schoolroom facilities are fine but the athletic facilities are poor. No fields and poor gym."

    "The main issue with this school are the amount of parents that are unreasonable, and do not understand boundaries when it comes to their child's teacher. Never I have seen a school where parents are constantly given the chance to make educational decisions over the teachers. Consequently, they drive educators away, and may even attempt to get rid of them. I pray for their Catholic renewal, and hope they can bring in leadership that has the ability to run the school in the interest of ALL students, not the one or few of the most overwhelming parents."
