    "Sad to say but "SPC is not the place to be." The few good teachers at this school have left. The remaining are either not qualified to teach or have just "given up", for lack of a better term, and are just there to collect a paycheck. The principal does nothing when confronted. Her job is to fundraise and market the school to attract new students to fund her budget. We have spent thousands of dollars sending our children to tutors not because they were failing, but because we felt it was necessary to compensate for the poor quality of education at this school. Many of the tutors in the area are funded by parents of SPC students. Our oldest child graduated from this school with honors, but failed basic algebra in high school. The counselor said that it is a pattern of students from SPC. My child was crushed. There were many children in my child's class that left last year for the same reason - poor academics. We pulled our other children out and sent them to another school. In hindsight we should have done it sooner. As parents we hoped that the money we spent at SPC would correlate into a good quality education. At this school it does not!"

    "St. Paul of the Cross is a wonderful school vested in the success of children. The school has an incredible Principal who knows all of the students and bases her decisions on what is best for the kids. The school community is blessed to have such a talented leader. Aside from a small contingent of "know it all parents" who challenge efforts and exhibit self-serving motives rather than offering assistance, the school produces kind, well-rounded graduates with the tools to succeed in high school and beyond. I must add, the majority of parents/families are very nice people - the playground gossip group is easily identifiable and even easier to ignore."

    "We have been so happy here, our third child is starting preschool next year. Warm community and teachers who both keep you in the loop and are genuinely concerned for your children. I would love there to be a playground for the younger grades but see it as a fundraising challenge!"

    "Fantastic. My child is happy going to school, the kids are friendly and polite. The principle genuinely cares about continually improving the school. In comparing this school to other faith based schools you can't go wrong. Very much a community. Look at the test scores and high school placements. I don't see it as a day care. I think it's appropriate to let children be children and introduce sports in 4th grade. There are opportunities for other clubs and activites. You need to read the Thursday mailings and be in the know."

    "I am surprised by some of the ratings here. We've been at the school 5 years and my 3 children are getting exactly the education I had hoped for - academics as good as the publics, and regular faith education. The kids go to mass every week. We have really enjoyed being a party of the community of families here."
