    "St. Cecelia is a fantastic school. My children love it and have had great experiences at every grade level. The administration is doing an excellent job of strengthening the Catholic identity while raising the academic bar. The designation of IB World School is reflected in the way that projects include multiple subjects and force students to ask "real world" questions. It is a school that helps its students think, not just memorize. St. Cecelia is a very supportive environment that works with parents to build ethical, faithful, intelligent and respectful young citizens. It is a great community of families and feels very much like home to me and my children. We love St. Cecelia and recommend it highly to anyone!"

    "The best part of St. Cecelia is the teachers. The majority are knowledgeable, caring, and engaging. Middle school bullying has increased in the past 3 years. Bullying does happen at most schools, but the problem is NOT being handled at all. Some rules do fall into the stupid category . Examples of lunch detentions: wearing brown belts/socks instead of black (a year ago black socks/belts were ok); bringing to class wide-rule paper instead of college-rule paper; forgetting to wear ID badge -time in between classes in middle school was shortened to 2 minutes and several classes are held in different buildings, if you are late to your next class you get a lunch detention . Also, you can't refer to Happy Halloween or Santa Claus but Happy Pumpkin Day and Saint Nicholas . These rules were implemented by the principal who came onboard 3 years ago. She is not approachable. Your ideas and feedback are not taken into consideration. Ask how many teachers have left the school the past 2 years, not counting the 4 teachers that gave their notice this year. St. Cecelia used to be a great school, in which parents, teachers and students felt proud to belong. That is not the case anymore."

    "Saint Cecelia is what a private education should be. Access to teachers, administrators, and all other staff on a daily basis. I drop off and pick up my 3 children AT THEIR CLASSROOM(S). If I have a question regarding an assignment, scheduling, billing, or whatever I simply talk with the teacher (or other individual). The best part is that the teachers, administrators, security personal, maintenance and lunch room staff go out of their way and are genuinely excited to help or answer any questions or concerns I have. I don't need to make an appointment, send an email, fill out a form, call, etc. Each day I pass by a public/private school car line or hear a co worker talk of waiting 2 days to hear back from a teacher via email about something I realize how lucky I am to have found a school like SCS."

    "Rules are good but common sence is better. Where is the common sence at STC?"

    "St. Cecelia is still an excellent school and even better than ever. I have been an involved parent for the past 13 years. The administration change referred to by the previous reviewer (6/9/14), has led to improvements in many areas. EVERY rule is now enforced even more consistently and fairly than ever before. In the past, some of dress code infractions and missing homework may have been overlooked or enforced sporadically. There is now a stronger attitude of, "if it is a rule in the handbook, there will be consequences for non-compliance." Isn't this what our children's experience should be, rather than the current popular mindset of "if I think it's a stupid rule, I don't need to follow it and can probably get away with doing what I want". Bullying can occur in any school. What is important is how it is handled. Our new principal has implemented a school-wide proactive anti-bullying program, enforces non-tolerance of such behavior and has demonstrated a very objective, thoughtful, and thorough handling of reported incidents. The character limits of this review don't let me enumerate the strengths of and many improvements at this wonderful school over the last two years."
