    "School is in turn around phase and I do believe is in the right direction. Parents here are very involved in school and lots of activities. My young daughter was accepted well into school and very welcomed by students. There are some parents that can be viewed a clique-ish and they somewhat are, but I believe they may be misinterpreted as they are trying to get the school moving in the right direction and perhaps don't have patience anymore from past issues. But overall a safe, welcoming school, with wonderful families, community and teaching of moral values. Now onto education. The school I believe again is on a change but I find that I have to teach over many Science and Math again at home. Test scores are better but still lacking compared to other private schools. Agree with other review that dropping foreign language and enforcing Math and Science is way to go. There are problems with this school, but it seems they are being addressed and there is now a new principal and technology initiative in place."

    "My children have fond memories of St. John Brebeuf School. Role models like the late "Uncle Pete" and dedicated teachers enriched their SJB experience. Fun, competitive, well-run sports program. Lots of volunteer opportunities. Unfortunately, too much parent power and their "if you don't like it leave attitude" has proven to be detrimental to the school.. Community involvement is strong. New principal anticipated for 2014-2015 school year. More advanced math and writing curriculum would help students be better prepared for high school. I believe It would be wise to eliminate the foreign language class and add an extra period of math in its place."

    "It's sad to see how opinions quickly change with some families when they don't agree with the decisions made. Also, if the school has a dedicated staff, how can it be a "waste of time and money"? Within the last year, test scores and enrollment have both gone up. The school is finally moving forward with its technology initiative and has a great plan in place that will better engage the students in the work they are completing. My child loves going to school here. That's what matters the most to me. I see the work that is being done in the classrooms, and couldn't be more encouraged for the future."

    "I agree with the previous post (March 21, 2014). What a waste of time and money. If this school was a private company it would have folded years ago. The administration is a joke. A few parents run the whole school with the motto "if you don't like what we are doing you can leave". That is what I am choosing to do. I would advise anyone who is considering sending their child(ren) to St. John Brebeuf to keep looking."

    "The young, bright, and energetic teachers left. The old ones stayed. Why? Thank goodness I am no longer a student here. This place was great when I was in the younger grades, but once I hit fourth grade, it was downhill from there. The junior high teachers were not motivated. Why was the nun removed from teaching? She was one of the better ones there. As a fourth grader, I learned time management, how to be my own advocate, and how to be prepared for junior high - from a nun! Get some energetic and young teachers there. If not for the one nun and the solo male teacher, this school would be ranked lower than two stars."
