    "After attending St. James School from preschool through eighth grade, my daughter was well-prepared for the rigors of the honors and AP courses at East Catholic High School. The faith-filled, caring, yet structured environment was provided by wonderful teachers who followed a curriculum which easily flowed into the high school level. This helped make for a happy and thriving childhood for my daughter. I marveled at how they covered so much material in addition to teaching the children about their faith, and the students tested well above grade level! Having two classrooms per grade and mixing the rosters was important in providing opportunities for new or renewed friendships through the years, and I loved how the kids came from all walks of life. My daughter s class has now scattered across the country, attending Notre Dame, Fordham, Providence College, Boston College, Siena, Villanova, Holy Cross, UConn, Clemson, Syracuse U. and Lehigh, just to name a few. The foundation for their success was laid at St. James School, and I will always be grateful to the principal, Mrs. Kanute, and all of the wonderful teachers."

    "St. James has provided the small class size and structure we felt our child needed at the point of entering Kindergarten. He continues to blossom academically and socially as he is moving through the primary grades. The availability of before and aftercare has been very helpful to us as working parents. Communication from school to home has been consistent and teachers have been responsive when we have had questions about the classroom. The curriculum exceeds expectations of the Common Core and the students are all required to write cursive!"

    "I currently have two children attending St. James, grades 5 and 2. My children are very happy at the school and strive for success everyday. While I truly believe you can achieve an excellent education in the public school system, the difference at St. James is that there is a strong sense of community. My children are taught to be good moral individuals and to respect everyone. This is evident when my children participate in sports within the town and I observe public school children not demonstrating respect or compassion to their teammates. Bullying and disrespect are not tolerated at St. James. For me, it is equally important to raise my children to be respectful as well as provide an excellent academic foundation. St. James provides both."

    "I am very pleased with St. James. My two children, with very different learning styles, have both enjoyed great success and have learned the value of working hard and the value of education. Students come out self motivated and well rounded. The teachers are supportive and fair and almost all carry masters in their fields. I greatly enjoy the lack of common core and the importance of community."

    "My daughter attends St James and is currently in kindergarten. She transferred last year from a public school where she was regressing due to an uncontrollable learning environment. All I can say is WOW and thank God for St James! The difference really is night and day, the teachers are phenomenal, they manage to be kind and compassionate while maintaining order and a healthy learning environment. The whole community is friendly and helpful, there is always someone to help you if you need it. The tuition is very reasonable in my opinion, and as for the fundraisers that is to be expected with a non profit school. I drive quite a distance to get there everyday and many ask me why, but to me it is worth the 30 minute. To know my child (eventually children) will get a superior education while being held to the high social and moral standards that we as a family have set for them is priceless. I cant wait for my son to be old enough to attend so that I can be in the HSA because the parents involved are friendly and welcoming. We would and do recommend this school to anyone who wants to give their child a great educational experience while being held to high moral standards."
