    "My children have attended St. Clare for more than 4 years. One graduated from 8th grade and one is still in attendance. Overall, we are happy with the school. Some recent faculty changes have been so-so. Math at the middle school level is seriously lacking. My child got to high school and has really struggled. My child's classmates have also struggled in math so that leads me to believe that few of them got a good foundation in middle school. My other child is in elementary and is not that happy this year. The teacher is militant and strict. Granted, some students need that but this teacher doesn't seem to like the job or the students at all! My child makes excellent grades and scores high on all standardized exams so the elementary education side seems to be good. However, we will be looking into alternate choices for middle school. The priest has been there for all four years that my child has. Father Vincent knows all the students by name and is very approachable. The principal is very laid back and soft-spoken and is out nearly every morning helping kids out of their cars at drop-off. He doesn't get too upset about things. We are a small community/family."

    "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."
