    "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."

    "Great school! So many things have changed great programs from kindergarten and up, there is an accelerated reading program. The junior battle of the books from 1-3. The school won the regional championship at Battle of the books!, the envision Math program is wonderful! Interactive! There's a junior jaguar basketball skills program for 1-3 grade the childern love it. So much parent involvement. This school is turning around, its getting there! Terra Nova scores have greatly improved. Above 50-75% above the national average Mind you no place is perfect however it's a wonderful place, come check it out and grow with us"

    "My son graduated with honors in Math and English. When he tested for high school they placed him in remedial math. They said that most students coming from SJB are deficient in Math. Learn from my mistake. Do not send your children here. It is a substandard school and most parents will agree. Total waste of money."

    "It's to bad the previous person left our school so dissappointed and misinformed. The school offers accelerated reader for children in K thru 8th grade. They also have a new math program which is wonderful. We have gotten a bad rap from people who are not even in our school and are not aware of all the great changes that have taken place. My children are thriving at SJB and it is worth every penny. The teachers are kind and wonderful people who go above and beyond to care for our children. They are here because they actually care not for their measly salary! If you want the truth come see for yourself what a fantastic school this is, you will not be disappointed! We don't need luck, we have a GREAT school!"

    "I left SJB extremely disappointed. My child was an accelerated reader and the school didn't even recognize it. I was told that the school did not have any available programs for accelerated readers until 3-4th grade. When I asked for advice on outside programs, I was told to research it myself. When I left SJB, the public school my child started attending, immediately recognized her potential and was placed in accelerated programs for both reading and math. My child is also attending a gifted kids program through Northwestern Univ. Looking at the positive reviews, I am surprised that parents are using words such as bullies or unfair to describe us. That shows you the kind of attitude and values this school and some of their die hard parents have. When I approach the principal and one of the teachers, I was told sorry, hope you can come back next year . If you want to pay for religious education (and tons of gossip) this is the place to be. Academically, sorry to say, they are pretty average and no better than many public schools. I am glad my child is thriving and I can use the $435 month tuition to cover her accelerated classes. Good luck to you all!"
