    "It is amazing how St. James has consistantly produced top qualitiy graduates who matriculate successfully into the finest high schools and colleges. As a parent of a St. James graduate I couldn't be more pleased. I have encouraged many families to attend St. James School and have been thanked for doing so. I challenge anyone to find a more caring faculty. The whole child is educated at St. James School."

    "My children have been at St. James School for many years. Although the school has its ups and downs, my children are receiving a very good education at St. James School. I have found the teachers to be responsive, caring, and supportive of their learning. Most importantly, my children are exposed daily to their faith. They attend Mass, do service for those in need, and pray. They are taught to forgive and love. I am thankful to St. James for providing this foundation to my children. Although an impressive new building, the latest technology, and air conditioning are nice, they are not what I value in the broader picture of life. I also don't think any of those things contribute to a well-rounded education. I hope that someday my kids will look back fondly at their k-8 years. By all accounts, the other families I have met at St. James have had children go on to do very well in high school and beyond."

    "This school is terrible. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE! (I would give ZERO stars if that was possible.) There are a lot of reasons this school is so bad. One mainly being is that the school is very outdated and the teachers seem not to care enough to do their best. Any issues that arise are not handled very well and are put off. They are always asking for large sums of money but never put it to use, there is still no air conditioning at the school although it has been a major issue for multiple years because the classrooms can get up to the high 90's in the summer. Even if it's only 85 degrees outside. (Although, the office, church, and gathering space all have air conditioning, funny how everywhere the children aren't there is air conditioning.) Also, the school is getting worse and worse every year with the class size decreasing greatly, the academics are okay at best, and the school it's self is very gloomy, dirty and outdated. It is not a nice sight to see everyday, let alone once, so take my advice and DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE! P.S. The music instructor is certainly not anywhere near excellent, and there are not a lot of extracurricular activities."

    "Teachers and staff are caring and focused on academics, however bullying is a problem that they have difficulty managing."

    "My child will be attending their 3rd year at St. James. While parental involvement is encouraged and required this makes the school very family oriented. For the negatives, class sizes are too big if your looking for more individual attention. Having over 30 students in a class is to much for private education yet seems to drop the higher you go. Modernization of resources needs major attention from classrooms to the library (still using card catalog.) NO airconditioning for the classrooms, makes summer very miserable for the students. Adminstration personnel keep accepting new students while there is barely enough room for what they have. If faith based education is what your looking for, St. James is the place. Acacdemic excellence is expected and yet achieved."
