    "We are an involved family, this school is not a great place to be, its incestual, not great if you re not in the family or know anyone who is. Drama and clicks, not only students but teachers, staff & parents. They'll talk to you, about you, and each other, no code of conduct, very few genuine people. Clubs are run by women with no thought of passing on to the next wave of moms, phony and unwelcoming. Academically they are a "D" school, and they re ok with that. Lots of the moms could use etiquette class, they ve no social skills, and some teachers are fake and phony as can be, more concerned with being your pal on Facebook. Computer class not great; website is awful; gym committee has more say than parents. Families left because the school couldn t professionally deal with issues. Accounting dept. is nonexistent. Improvements are supposed to be made from pre-k to kinder- it s developmental milestones, pre3/4 are just daycares nothing special, kids watch a lot of movies! Summer camp, they don t do all they say they ll do with kids. Extended is just ok. Schools they are supposed to make people feel welcome this school chases people away year after year."

    "I'm a parent that is involved at the school! I feel my children are getting a great education. As like many schools, their are clicks (let's face it, people just get a long better with certain people) yes there is some bulling, but again that happens at most schools! Unfortunately we did lose some families!! But that is by choice! As a community member, parish member & family of St. Gerald, I do believe that we the parents (willing parents) can make change happen! And remember, if someone says something that your child might have done (good or bad) please look into it before stating "not my child" this will help in matters!! Thanks and St Gerald is a Great Place to Be!!"

    "This is one of the worst schools to send your child to if you want them to have any sort of education. The teacher from Grades 4-8 are horrible. The worst teachers were 4, 5, and 6 grade. The principle is a another story. The teachers and the woman from the mother's club run him and he does not have a back bone. He is nice but not qualified as a principle. I moved my child into this school because of the lower tuition and let me just say... You get what you pay for. There have been so many families that have pulled their children out of this school that 3 years since the new principle came to this school has lost 10 families because of bulling that has gotten out of hand from the "Mother's that run the mother's club and their little gang of woman that will make your life a living nightmare until you are forced to leave. The Mother's club is a joke of rude, chatty, and cliquish group of woman. Trust me don't believe those reviews or parents that say how wonderful this school is. I got sucked into that belief and now my child lost 6 years of her education. You are better off saving your money and putting to the side for your childs college education and send them to public school"

    "I have 2 children enrolled at St Gerald and will be enrolling my youngest as well next fall. Both of my kids have made tremendous gains academically since beginning at St Gerald. My child in kindergarten is reading well and its only halfway through the school year!"

    "My children are attending St. Gerald and they actually love going to school. I love that they receive the education and discipline they need to prepare them for upper grades, high school, college and life. I like that the teachers notify me immediately if my child's progress is slipping in any subjects or even if they are just having a rough day; it helps me to be aware of what's going on in their lives while they are away from me. It also eliminates surprises on their report cards and prevents my children from falling behind. I feel that I can talk to the teachers and staff anytime I have a concern. I specifically want to mention Mrs. Reardon (K-4) and Ms. Slonskis (1st grade) as two amazing teachers. I cannot say enough good things about them. My children loved being in their class and have learned so much from them. The Extended Day Care is a great plus. They are even available on many days that school isn't in session but most people still have work. The staff is great; they help my children with homework and keep them busy the whole time. We are very happy that we found this school."
