    "We have been here for several. Here are our opinions based on firsthand experiences and knowledgeable insiders: GOOD: Language/English program, music/drama, fine arts (although teaching methods get some complaints), parent participation is required and strong, school seems to prepare kids for high school (similar to other good elementary and middle schools locally), daycare (nice to have). MARGINAL/BAD: Math can be stronger (the amount of drill/kill homework unnecessary), Spanish (while required from PreK on, is not rigorous, high school placement results are mixed), social environment (families of older students feel a tad worn by the 7-8 year mark, kids are sheltered), some bullying issues (I think they're addressing it quicker now), computer curriculum/technology (no one here knows what they're doing, kids freely surfing the web), leadership (biggest complaints: principal has no previous experience as administrator, she doesn't come out of her office much, has no genuine connection with the students). Wish I can add more positive comments, but some of the concerns addressed by postings from 6/10/13 and 5/10/13 are right on. Sites like these should help school to improve."

    "This school provided an excellent learning place. Although, there is a lot of privileges taken away if you do not obey every command they tell you to do. St Albans is too strict and uptight even to their first and second graders, who should be having fun, but instead is having homework. The regimen is strict and every child is expected the same as the smartest kid in class. Your child needs a good education? St.Albans. Your child needs a safe and loving environment while they grow the first few years of their lives? Not St. Albans. On top of that the moms of St.Albans upper grade are nosy and stuck up because they send their children to a rich school and think they can do whatever they want. They will hear gossip and drama and get in your childs face about it. Most of the students there become very sheltered and not prepared for high school and the social whirlpool it can be. In one grade three children left in the same year because of bullying issues and attitude issues. NOT job or financial relations. God bless. sources: Firsthand Experience"

    "St. Albans offers an excellent academic and enrichment curriculum in a safe and caring environment, with a focus on parent involvement and high values. I can take to task every point made in the May 10, 2013 posting, but will sum it up in this way instead: We have three St. Albans (now university) graduates and one current St. Albans student and all are thriving. One of the three graduates will begin the UCLA Anderson MBA program this Fall ranking in the 98 percentile. All four have made lifelong friendships at St. Albans. The reported 10% turnover is inaccurate. Max student body is 240 (ten grade levels with twenty-four students max). Approx. 4 - 7 students leave per year or 2 - 3%. For unbiased information, contact the admissions department at the local high schools such as Granite Bay, Del Oro, Jesuit and St. Francis. Meet the Head of School and read the lengthy Western Assoc. of Schools and Colleges accreditation report. Their team of evaluators left "no stone uncovered." St. Albans is not perfect. Small schools have their own set of issues; however, I feel they are minor. St. Albans has given our children a great start on life. The best part-our children agree."

    "EXCELLENT school. We have been thrilled with the education at St. Albans for several years now. Our children have been challenged, nurtured and love going to school. The teachers are excellent, communicate well with parents and genuinely care about academic and personal growth. The May 10, 2013 is incorrect. In our experience maybe 3 or 4 students leave per year and most often this is due to financial or job relocation reasons. The school does have a wait list and believe me, many people wish more students left the school so they'd get the call, but it simply doesn't happen. We believe if you research other area schools and do comparisons, you'll agree St. Albans is a top notch school!"

    "Do your homework and research what top schools in Placer County are doing before choosing this school. St. Albans' reputation for superior academic quality no longer rings true (see posting from July 1 2009). The principal and board are floundering in managing the school and retaining students. There is no one running the school who has any experience to fix the aging curriculum, dormant parent fundraising and ancient computers. Many of the "older" teachers are stale and completely scared of adopting anything new because it means more work. Families are unhappy and looking for alternatives. Be sure to request a meeting with the principal and ask why the "Best Little School in the West" has more than 10% student turnover each year. Don't fret, you'll get called from that "long wait list" soon since so many leave each year. Oh, and when budgeting that tuition payment, don't forget to add in the thousands you'll shell out if your student is asked by the teacher to get extra tutoring after school. Is the problem that the students they admit can't keep up or the teachers aren't good at teaching to different students? Either way, the school is not doing its job well."
