    "Great school ... but very bad principal.... Mrs. Nancy Arnett is bringing the school down. Not a leader... not a role model..... not a nice person in general.... should not be working with children."

    "My child is in the current Saint Matthew kindergarten class and we are impressed. The students feel loved and cared for by the teacher & aide. More important, the students are learning an academic foundation that can be built upon in first grade, etc. They learn the sounds of letter and of letter combinations, the skills necessary to decode words on their own and they are held accountable for site words. All of these skills are imperative to learn to read. My brother's kids at another school missed out on these basic kindergarten skills and his kids struggled in the upper grades. They are reading now after years with a private tutor learning the basic skills that are being taught in kindergarten at Saint Matthew. Ask the Saint Matthew first grade teachers--they will tell you the students come from Saint Matthew kindergarten ready to read and/or reading. Those who transfer from other schools into the first grade, who missed out on these basic skills in their kindergarten, come to Saint Matthew struggling. Besides the successful building of this academic foundation, the kindergarteners regularly practice public speaking, are taught values and are taught to be responsible."

    "I am the parent of two alums of St. Matt's School. St. Matt's is a wonderful school and a great community. My children attended St. Matt's for 9 years, were taught by loving, dedicated and well-qualified teachers and administrators who were genuinely interested in their education, were admitted to quality high school, were well-prepared for rigorous high school honors and AP classes, and ultimately admitted to top universities. In addition, the St. Matt's parish community is a warm, inclusive, fun and faith-filled community. The clergy, staff, and parishioners of St. Mathew Parish are supportive, with their time, talent and treasure, of the educational ministry of its school. For many years I have promoted St. Matt's to parents of soon-to-be elementary school students; I will continue, without reservation and with great enthusiasm, to do so."

    "I am the proud father of two current St. Matthew students. My wife and I have been part of the St. Matthew community for several years. Always satisfied with our school decision, it wasn't until my child reached junior high that I realized St. Matthew Catholic School was in a league all its own. In addition to the spiritual and rigorous academic components, I find that St. Matthew constantly reinforces the values my wife and I preach at home; always take pride in one s work, integrity, character and a solid sense of decorum. While some have commented on this site describing these student expectations as unrealistic and uncaring, I see them not only as quite reasonable but also necessary ingredients of becoming a responsible and respectful young adult. It is clear from the postings on this site that from one family to the next, experiences can differ. Yet, I felt the need to speak my truth, after all they are commenting on my school. Basically, from the Administration to the teachers, their love and care for my children has never wavered. It takes a strong leader to be able to withstand the criticism of anonymous others. I fully support our leader. I encourage others to join me."

    "What is remarkable about the wide range of pros and cons - is how little the administration of St. Matthew's cares about the Legacy of such a wonderful school. They do not care about who attended St. Matt's in the past or in the future, they only care about the here and now. The south side of campus, the Ramp, went from being where we all grew up and longed for becoming upperclassmen and graduates to a full-fledged bleeding-heart day care center. The do-everything Lady in the main buildings office was spat upon and run out by the admin. The chasm that started as a small fissure when the Parish Church left Ellsworth Street and came to 900, only grew into a complete bottom-less pit as decades went by. If it wasn't the Italian Catholic Federation fighting for calendar time or long time gym users fighting with in over their heads clergy, then it was the shameless nepotistic dealings by Administrators towards tremendous former teachers and staff. There have been some wonderful boys and girls who attended this school. Those new families that left nice-nice reviews, just wait."
