    "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."

    "I am apalled at what this school has become. Instead of teaching children, the priest has taken it upon himself to go and solicit money from the children to help build the new school building. If the school administration had been so short sighted in the first place this would not even be an issue. I have two kids that go here and the priest popped into both classes and told the children to go home and bring their money to give to the school. This is unacceoptable. It is bad enough that many of the teachers are subpar but to take away time from their education like that is inexcusable."

    "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."

    "There is a previous review that I agree a 100 percent. The teachers do not have the capability to relate to younger children. I do not have words to explain how painful it was to put my child in this school. I received complains continuously about my child behavior describing situation that I have never seen my child do and I really thought my child had issues. I decided to take my child out and changed schools. The teacher s feedback couldn t have been better (reading and math levels are above grade level) and no behavior complains. This review is more than not just being a good match for my child; this is about the lack of KNOW-HOW and WANT TO that the teachers have. The Principle I don t know who he is, I saw him a couple of time directing traffic at the school."
