    "St. James School has a wonderful history, however, recently the school is not at all a place I would send my child or recommend to fellow parent. My child went to St. James for a couple of years and I am very disappointed and feel that both my time and money were wasted. The school is very unorganized and the principal is rarely available for parents. Whenever I needed to speak with her (morning/afternoon) she was always "at lunch". The teacher turnover s unbelievable. During my child s stay at St. James (2-yrs) I counted a replacement of six teachers! The environment is not very kid friendly and the classrooms seem crowded and un-orderly. I know parents, one in particular, who was very vocal about the lead teacher and her behavior. Her complaints were dismissed and she was treated terrible for speaking out about the teachers behavior. She removed her children and it didn t take long for others to recognize the problem and follow. St. James needs a fresh start, principal, staff and administration. I would recommend saving your $$ and finding a great public school b/c there is no difference in the quality of education when it comes to this school."

    "I've had to lower my expectations for this school, and my children are at St. James because it is convenient and cheap childcare until I can find something more appropriate. The families, staff and students are nice, especially the students, who are really loving and nice with each other. The facilities need a lot of work: classrooms and other space are dark, cluttered, and not warm and bright like I would expect a school to be. To access the school, you have to enter a door and be buzzed in, but the buzzer rarely works and someone in the office has to come let you in if they are able to see you. I have to find alternate ways into the school on a regular basis, and I can't reach the office via phone. The school has not had a full-time principal so I can't comment on that. But when I have had questions or problems, they do try to address them. Most of the teachers are nice, but don't seem to really be well-trained and don't really know how to engage the students. They rely heavily on videos and computer programs and I don't feel this is a learning center, but daycare. They have cookies, sweet buns and chips for the kids to eat regularly. They have a decent PTO."

    "I have been a parent at St. James for several years and one of the things I have noticed is the some of the teachers are very laid back and they don't push the children to learn. The after school program is good but I don't think the children are being challenged academic wise."

    "My daughter has been at St.James school for 11yrs and I have witnessed that 'Great Things Are Happening There.' She tested post high school on the Stanford 10 and can compete with students at any other Private, Magnet, and or Vanguard school. When interviewing at one of the premier private high schools the teachers were impressed that our students had already taken the required studies for the 9th grade. The liberal arts program has lifted her to another level of excellence that will enable continued success."
