    "I can't tell you what little regard I have for a school that keeps teachers on faculty who have an inability to interact with students in a personable and Catholic manner. The administration fully acknowledges "personality" problems with these teachers. The parents are lulled into the idea that these teachers are something to be endured rather than expect more for our tuition and from our school. After having personally been on the receiving end of a teacher's ire over calling her out on a grading error on her part (that she flatly refused to acknowledge when my child tried speaking with her), I can say the stories the students tell are spot on. The grade was fixed, but not before I saw first hand what my kid experiences daily. It clouds what overall is a good faculty, and what should be a good educational experience. The behavior is something that would never be tolerated at a public school in the Kyrene district. Why it's embraced at the Catholic school, where it goes against the school's mission statement, is beyond me. Diocese, please do your job and fix this."

    "I am so very thankful for SJB. My son has been attending since first grade and is now in third grade. He is excited to go to school and is happy when he comes home. This is a great change from his public school experience. We have attended both the Kyrene public school and the other main private school in this area and SJB by far exceeds both! One of the main reasons, outside of the academics, is the kindness and caring school environment which I believe sets SJB apart form other schools. The children are taught to care for one another and those values are enforced by the teachers and staff. This school is a true blessing and I am so thankful we found our way there."

    "Hello, I am a grandparent and volunteer at the school on a weekly bases. My own children went to public school as we couldn't afford private school. I did attend Catholic schools myself. I feel because of my own schooling and business background I can be an impartial voice. I have watched the students and faculty over several years and see a caring environment with everyone's well being at the heart of everything that is done. I am amazed at how the students treat each other with respect and care. The whole child is developed at this school. Their ability to speak in front of groups, handle challenges could be a model for any business. In the future you are going to have to be able to sell yourself in the work force. SJB is teaching their students how to be a complete person in society and this will help them succeed as adults. I tell business leaders on a regular bases that if SJB students are the norm then our country will be in very good hands in the future. I am very proud and privileged to be part of such a great school."

    "I started my first child at SJB 5 years ago and now I have 3 there. I have watched this school go through an amazing transformation over the last 2 years since new leadership have arrived on campus. Dr Axman and Mr Watson are fantastic and have done more to connect with the kids and the parents than the previous administration ever did. Father Bob is also a Godsend bringing a renewed sense of spirituality and Catholicism while also going out of his way to foster the relationships with the original 4 parishes that started the school. Sure, we've had teachers that we've liked better than others, but our kids have always progressed and outscored their peers on the standardized tests. The addition of the math coach over the last 2 years has definitely had a positive impact on all 3 of my kids' math scores and comfort with numbers. There remain some communication issues between administration/teachers and parents that I'm sure exist at any school, but overall, being able to have our kids in a Catholic environment every day and benefit from the blessings that provides is really great. We fully expect to see our 5 kids graduate from SJB."

    "Since the change of the Pastor and the Administration improvement has been seen in: student interest, excelling grades, teacher team work, investment in the students, increased enrollment."
