    "I am sorry, but remedying the problem by moving teachers from one grade to another is not remedying at all. Until the leadership on both levels leaves then this school will never be anything but sub par. Also, having two kids in public school that also went to St Clare, the curriculum is not one year ahead as the parent says. In fact, much of their curriculum is old and out dated."

    "I have been a parent at this school for 4 years now going into our fifth. The parents that say there isn't any parent participation are the ones that's don't make the effort! There are plenty of opportunities and the same parents who volunteer are the same ones each time. Both of my children have excelled greatly at St. Clare. I do agree that some of the teachers are lacking but know that there are changes happening to remedy that situation. The curriculum is quite appropriate and is actually a grade level ahead of the area public schools. I have MANY friends with children in the local schools that are in the same grades as my children that are not on the same level of learning as mine. The school is a small community where all the children know each other regardless of age. The older children help out the younger ones. I know that every school has it's downsides- I believe that St. Clare is the right place for my kids. No school is perfect- they are constantly evolving. I am sorry for the parents that didn't find this school appropriate for their kids. All children learn differently. I hope they found their perfect school for their children."

    "In Aug. 2013 the priest abruptly closed the MDO Program 2 wks before the school yr was to begin, displacing about 50 infants & toddlers (future St. Clare students?) and forcing their working parents to hastily find childcare elsewhere. The school has a definite PR problem on its hands."

    "People need to be wary of this school. I have a child that goes here and lately the school has gone downhill in a hurry. The leadership form the school and church is VERY questionable and many teachers are not doing what is best for children. The goal of this school has become more about raising money for their new building they are forced to build than it is about educating children of the Catholic faith. Many teachers do not have any flexibility in the way they teach and do not have compassion. Many teachers are there because they cannot cut it at other schools, especially Public Schools. I would use high caution when sending your kids here. There is a lot of money that comes through the school because of benfactors, but the leadership needs to be changed out if this school is to truly blossom. There are some good teachers here but they are mostly int he lower grades pk-3, and 5. Middle School is hit or miss from what I understand."

    "This school has some really good teachers , but there are some that are flat out awful. Some can teach only one way and if your child does not learn that way then they will struggle in that classroom. The teachers also run the show and the administration allows them to do what they want even if it is very unprofessional. I had two kids there and had to pull one for that reason. They had problems in the classroom and when it was take to the administration and then the priest, it was said to us that it was our problem and not theirs. The early grades has some really good teachers, the middle grades has some very shaky teachers, of which one in particular is very unprofessional and cannot teach productively. She also thinks she runs the school by some of the things I have seen her say to other teachers and parents. I am not sure on the Middle School teachers. If you are in the early grades then you should be fine. Other grades, then buyer beware. I still have one child at the school so this is based on recent information."
