    "Continuing from my first post, there is so much hidden information you need to know about this school. They are very ignorant to pronouncing students' names properly (this does not include common typical names such as Amber, Jimmy, Mark, etc.) Instead they do not LEARN the proper pronunciation and instead pronounce it their way. The students helping the staff are the same way as well. Very unprofessional. FOR THE HOT DAYS: The school barely has any air conditioners.The only air conditioners to my knowledge are in the research room (now currently known as the teacher's area or lounge), the cafeteria, and the sisters' convent. We have to suffer through the hot days on the top floor with a huge fan that in most cases, does not work at all. PHYSICAL EDUCATION AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL! The female teacher is a nightmare and barely cares for her students at all. I have gotten HEAD INJURIES or have FALLEN in her CLEAR SIGHT and she doesn't even ask if I am okay. The only games are dodge ball, kick ball, or capture-the-flag. Of course running is involved too. RECESS PART 2 Many times, the school sent the students out in cold weather and in one case, after going outside it started POURING!"

    "My child has been at this school for years and the teachers are not that great. They seem like they don't want to be there. The students have been caught engaging in activities that an adult would'nt do in school. They bully each other on facebook. The staff treats you like your not welcomed always felt like an outsider. They care more about the children of the staff and alumne then other children. I never felt like I belonged or was part of the school or parish. They ask for volunteers but only pick the same people over and over again and they are always teachers who have kids at the school or alumne so why bother to sign up they always say we have enough volunteers already. The school is unbalanced some children get treated very well while others get left behind.Most of all my child was not ready for the demands of high school even though she maintained good grades.Over all If I could do it all over again I would choose another school.The one good thing was the security was good always locked up and they have security cameras. Your better off sending your child to public school and save the money for college."

    "Was good until this year..Now the teachers/staff are becoming more concerned it seems about petty little things that shouldn't even matter...The principal is not the greatest to deal with...Save your money and go to a better catholic school such as Sacred Heart/St Denis/ or St. Anastasia"

    "The conduct of students here is extremely awful and some things have happened that are completely unacceptable. I would reccomend sending your child there but only up untill the fifth or sixth grade"
