    "I am an alumni of this school and I am aware of the concerns from the Aug & Oct 2013 posts. The HS was a seminary when opened in 1903 owned by the Oblate order, however they began to let those considering the priesthood in later. I was there the summer of 1995 when IWC (now UIW) bought out St A. Had they not the HS would have closed the summer of '96. The parents at the time were so discouraged by the administration's rules they began to play the lotto with the intend of buying the HS to keep it the way it was. Since UIW put their admins in place, the academics have improved, however the teachers cannot discipline the students since the admins will reverse punishment with the treat of a parent transferring their child. The football coach (whoever it ends up being) doesn't even have the authority to run the team properly. If a parent complains the coach is told to adhere to the parents wishes. The teachers are great people and role models, but they can only do so much due to the admins. This school found a way to be great for nearly 100 years, it can happen again if Dr. Agnese stops catering to the few that ruin it, and acts in the best interest of the many."

    "To the Aug 2013 post, your gut feeling is right. What you thought in mid August, I thought in late September/ early October in a past school year. You made a mistake. LEAVE. We did. In late December, we decided to start looking elsewhere for schools. We quietly transferred out after one year. I concur what you wrote about the administration and the communication. The teachers, for the most part, were very good. There is one glaring exception that freshman have had to deal with and I never understood why they keep that particular teacher around. I bought into the BS about this school being the "best" also before we got there.We moved here from out of state and I went with what info our middle school told us (or did not tell us). You are "spot on" about the students and the sloppiness and, to me, that shows a lack of character. I questioned how a couple of kids were even admitted here. One wonders how long this school would have survived if it had not hitched its wagon to UIW."

    "Let me first say that the teachers so far seem wonderful, caring and willing and wanting to make their students learn and be in an environment that broadens their education and be the best the students can be. With that being said, the administration does not seem to be too intune with their staff when it comes to communication within the school and parents/families. You seem to get the run around from the office staff with just basic questions that they can't simply answer or you get three different answers. We have seen many young men with no belts on their slacks, shirts untucked walking around with dirty shoes. Many of the young ladies dress blouses are not pressed and are sloppy looking. For this school being known as one of the "BEST" Catholic HS in San Antonio you would expect a lot more with how these students are handled and seeing that their needs are met becauase number one should be the student. I hope and pray that we did not make a terrible mistake putting our chidlren here. If the first week of school is any inidcation of how the rest of the school year will be...then we have really made a bad choice."

    "Outstanding school! My children have loved their time at SACHS. The teachers are fantastic and the academics are strong. There are many opportunities for the students to take advantage of like AP courses, college classes at The University of the Incarnate Word, numerous clubs and academic organizations. There is no doubt that the students are well-prepared for college when they graduate."

    "Two of our children have graduated from SACHS. One is a senior there this year. I could not be more pleased with the experience my children have had here. The academics are solid. Both graduates earned substantial scholarships to the universities of their choice. My senior has been enrolled in dual credit courses with The University of the Incarnate Word since his junior year. There was never a day that the kids didn't want to go to school. They loved it here. Starting each day in chapel means so much. There are no cliques. All the kids get along. The teachers truly love and care for their students. Academically, the teachers are outstanding. It's been a GREAT experience."
