    "I'm glad that I waited to review St. Bernadette. Previous comments are right on the mark. St. B's is a very tight community, which is a downfall here. The cliques are very strong between both students and parents. Like the students, parents are not inviting if your children are not within their cliques. Our children attending St. B's for many years, but we transferred before they graduated middle school. I'm glad to know that a some of the teachers (and nurse) have retired, and maybe that's helped to improve the school now. Teachers were also in after-care and by the end of the day, they have less tolerant. Academics were challenging and many of the students do well and move on to Catholic high schools. Foreign language is limited for lower grades and there's limited cultural diversity both in school and in parish. Strongly recommend MORE than one visit, plus meeting with teachers your child would have."

    "I have been at other schools and can honestly say the cliques at this school are far worse then any other school environment I have ever been in. Any parent who is in their thirties and forties still living their sorority and frat days sends up a red flag. Acceptable behavior for late teens to early twenties. Not grown adults. As you can imagine, this behavior is passed down to their children who then act it out in the classrooms. The nice familes and nice kids leave this school. Fourth grade and above is really when the cliques become noticeable and harmful to the children."

    "My school is not very commutative. Very few students will welcome new students when a student come to a certain grades. When I came to the seventh I was not welcome entirely by the students and only two students welcomed me."

    "Cliques: Yes but not more than any other school. All schools have them in some capacity and it is more with the parents than children. Regarding these parents, it seems they are the ones who have stayed in the same area they grew up in type thing (went to same high school, etc.). While it seems like some are reliving sorority/frat days, they are such a small part of the atmosphere and are not really that abundant as I've experienced...they are just really comfortable with the people they grew up with : ) Otherwise, especially with the incoming grades, many of the families are those who didn't grow up in the same area, etc., making for a very welcoming, community environment. We have enjoyed this immensely. Education: The administration is making great strides in bringing in new, fresh, accomplished teachers. We are in the private system for the private high school it will afford, and while I'm sure my child is not learning as much as her public school friends at this very moment, she's learning more than enough to excel in the private high schools and most importantly is very happy there. We've looked at other private parochial schools, and so far, St. B's is a good fit for us!"

    "The principal is excellent and has made substantial improvements at the school. I cant say that for the teachers, as some of them definitely have their favorites and are partial and this impacts their teaching. They spend more time enforcing petty rules. Also, if you are anything but causcaian, think twice before attending this school. The quality of the education has defintiely improved but the the sacrifice on your kids self esteem and confidence might not be a good trade off in the short or long term. There are other choices out there and you are paying for this choice, Think again."
