    "It's so sad that the 2nd grade teacher left b/c she's allergic to the principal's dog. Why is that dog allowed in school anyway? Isn't that a health department violation? I thought that the only dogs allowed in schools are seeing eye dogs? What a shame...she was so nice and always seemed so happy. It's so sad that a good teacher had to leave because of that dog! Aren't people supposed to be more valuable than animals?"

    "This school is an amazing school. I wish we did not move too far away and had to leave. My son went here for 2 years, 1st and 2nd grades. He still talks about how much he misses his friends and the staff. Trust me when I tell you that no school is perfect but this school is close. The teachers and principal work hard to make every child feel safe and loved. If I could I would go back to this school in a second with my 2 boys."

    "I am a recent graduate who obtained many honors throughout my educational years at St. Columba. I disliked this school so much because I was constantly ridiculed and excluded by the other students in the class. The teachers were well aware of the problem, yet it was ignored. Nothing was done to promote friendship or acceptance. In spite of this, I did really well by focusing and looking toward the future with all it had to offer. I wish my experience had been better, and that respect and dignity was incorporated into my learning experience, but unfortunately, it wasn't . Yes, I also agree that favoritism prevails! In fact when scholarships were presented at graduation for the most prominent high schools, they were given to those whose parents volunteered or were constantly involved in school functions. I am so very grateful to have finally graduated, and freed from that uncomfortable situation. I am doing amazing at my new high school; respect and friendship is promoted and encouraged. I have made numerous friends, and finally gained a sense of pride that I never had while attending St. Columba. I would not recommend this school to anyone, nor will I ever send my children there."

    "I am very happy with the school. I have 3 children in various grades. We have been to the local public school and a nearby Catholic school (classes of 35++kids). SDSC is the best fit for my children. I guess sometimes you have to experience other things to really appreciate what you have. The school is not perfect (no school is ). The Principal is extremely approachable and understanding. I think she is doing a great job! I know my children are SAFE and are LEARNING. They all come home happy. The bottom line is no school can please every parent and people love to complain! Many are looking for excuses not to pay tuition anymore because the economy sucks, our taxes are higher and they simply can't or don't want to pay it anymore. I wish the problems that some disgruntle parents are having be kept at the school and be addressed at the school not on the web. Please don't tarnish our reputation because your unhappy. Catholic school is not the right fit for every child, some children do need special ed services offered at the public school and that is not SDSC fault. I will agree that the 3rd grade teacher is a little lacking-but my child likes her and is doing great in her class."
