    "My three children all attend Saint James School - grades first, fourth, and seventh. My oldest came into SJS in fourth grade. She was academically far behind after four years in public school. It took her most of the school year to catch up, but the teachers were supportive, and willing to stay after school for her. She is never asked to tutor her fellow students. She is always given work to meet her needs, is challenged and is never bored. She also loves the basketball program which has been an unexpected blessing. My middle child has always been a bit of a dreamer, and can get lost in class. He has been taken out of the classroom for extra tutoring in math, and has received speech services which have helped with his reading. My youngest can be a bit of a discipline problem. His teacher has clear rules, and there are punishments. His teacher says he is now one of the best in class. I wasn't certain if we could afford the tuition, but after having my children shadow at the school for the day, it was clear it was a sacrifice we had to make for them. We do apply for financial aid every year, and there is a well stocked uniform closet to help defray expenses."

    "This year we are starting our 4th year at St. James. We transferred in when my oldest entered 5th grade. Our kids made the transition from single-class-per-grade to two-classes-per-grade much easier than we imagined. The benefits of the larger environment are both academic and social. There is a monthly printed newsletter to keep everyone in the loop, as well as the school website for day to day information and a Facebook page for fun stuff. You will always know what is going on at school! We have no regrets about transferring our kids to St. James. It was the best thing we could have done."

    "This is our first year at St James and I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing experience this has been! It's not just a school, it's a community - my kids' (grades 2 & 3) classmates welcomed them with open arms and helped ease their transition to a new school. We transferred from a smaller parochial school in town and we are blown away with the level of education St James offers. This was what I always expected from a parochial or private school. My 2nd grader is learning techniques for test prep through highlighting and testing! Wow! My 3rd grader is taking Spanish (in addition to our family's native language outside of school) - the instructor has high expectations, but we expect nothing else. The other parents have welcomed us into the community and we can see where the children have learned their compassion. Mrs. Kanute, the principal, greets every child by name in the morning and makes sure they make it safely to the playground. It's wonderful to see her so involved on a personal level. We are happy to see what more is in store for us! :)"

    "This is a national Blue Ribbon school, and rightly so. The teachers are wonderful -- very concerned and willing to go out of their way to work with students and parents. There is a very caring atmosphere. It is well equipped and provides and excellent education at all levels. Our child transferred from another school, so we are really aware of the differences."

    "I am giving this school an average rating because I have mixed feelings. The good: strong education, sets high standards for students in areas of academics, civic, personal and moral behavior, supports athletics and the arts. Concerns: Learned through internet search that one of the middle school teachers does not uphold the same personal or moral values expected in this setting. Unfortunately my daughter and her friends found this information on their own. Very upsetting for her to see and for me to try to explain. We love our school, but the school administration needs to be more selective and thorough when hiring staff."
