    "Maternity B.V.M school is a great place to learn! I am a fellow student from here and can tell you that the teachers are dedicated workers. They will any child who is struggling or doesn't fully understand the lesson. Also there is 0 tolerance for bullying, disrespect etc here at B.V.M. The teachers are very kind and are truly trying to help myself, and my classmates suceed. For any parents who are looking to send their children to Maternity B.V.M, I can tell you that is it is a great place!"

    "I have two sons in this school my husband and I are also alumni of this school. I can say that yes you have good teacher/bad teachers, but what school doesn't. The good ones you can e-mail anytime and they will take the time to help your son/daughter. The bad teachers they won't be there next year or maybe not even finish the year out. They have a 0 tolerance for bullying, they have a guidance office to help the students with issues. The principal, Mrs. Z. yes can have an attitude and have her favorites, but you have to trust that she knows what she is doing. You do not have to agree with her, and she will listen to your point of view. Once your child does one thing wrong she will keep a close eye on him/her the whole time they are there. Father Q. GREAT pastor will work with you and is not concerned with money, in fact his family donated money to BVM to help out with repairs. I like this school and would recommend it to any new parent. Good schools are hard to find and this is definitely a good school. Lots of sports and involvement if that is what you are looking for. You can sit and watch or be involved in everything"

    "I have 2 kids in BVM for over 5 years now and the lack of discipline at the school is a joke. My kids routinly come home & say this person got another demerit and this one got another demerit too. What good is the demerit system if it is not enforced. I am though very happy with all my kids teachers but it seems their hands are tied with disciple because the principle, Mrs Z doesnt care & the pastor only cares about money. These bad apples will never be thrown out of BVM because the bottom line is less students means less funds coming into the school. The sports programs at the school are a joke. We tried a few sports there but they were highly disorangized so we decided to stay with our local rec department for sports. Like I stated earlier, I love the teachers there but there is no support from the principle or the pastor. I send my kids here because I'm scared to death to send them Phila Public schools."

    "I would not recommend this school to any parent. If you have another choice of Catholic Elementary and can afford the tuition you would be better off sending your child anywhere but here. The bullying that goes on in this school is intolerable. The principal talks a good story but does NOTHING to stem the ripple effect of the on-going bullying. It is pervasive and no one at this school has done anything about it. This has continued for more than 2 years and it seems to get worse with each year. BUT, the teachers and Principal are quite quick to dole out demerit slips. Parents can only do so much as they are not there during the day. You put your children in the hands of people who are supposed to teach them how bullying is WRONG on every level. Rregardless of what you teach your children at home, they will learn quickly what they can do and get away with which merely undermines what it taught at home. This school is an embarrassment to the archdiocese."

    "As a parent I want what is best for my children. I have been very happy the last three years at Maternity BVM. Any time that I wanted to meet with a teacher or the principal I have always done so. Discipline is very good here. Our kids are only going to behave how we raise them. Being involved in any activiy keeps the communication going. I would highly suggest BVM."
