    "A Parent - My child has been at St. A's since Kindergarden and within a few years he will be attending a public high school. We are very impressed with the quality of education our child is receiving. One of the tag lines at St. A's is "We teach more" and they do, more than public and more than other private schools, perhaps it is the smaller class sizes or higher parent involvement/ volunteers. Not sure. While no school is without it challenges, the faculty truly cares and works towards solutions if given a chance. In fact a few teachers were actual St.A's students themself. I cannot think of a better testimony than that. Their love of starting a career of teaching and giving back to to community started with St. Alexander. What also impressrs me is the Athletic Program with the smaller class size has posed some issues but my child gets the opportunity to play any of the four sports offered at a VERY reasonable price."

    "The staff is "cliquish". You will notice this when you attend open house. Nobody will greet you or make eye contact. You get a strange feeling from day 1 from this place. If you volunteer to help out, you will get an email from the teacher asking you to go shopping for her class. Bizarre. You get things in your child's backpack from other kids, sometimes even lunch trash in the backpack. Terrible experience, poor quality education and odd staff. The administration seems to support mediocracy. Run for your life."

    "Be cautious of the preschool program for 3 year olds. You want a place where they are guided and taught, and not scrutinized for typical little 3 year old behavior. There are plenty of options in the community."

    "St. Alexander School is fantastic. I went there for 8-years, graduating in the early 1990s. Our children are currently enrolled there, and they absolutely love their classmates, teachers, and principal. My St. A s experience really paid off. I went on to attend college and graduate school and now have a solid career. I attribute most of my success in life, thus far, to this school's close-knit, nurturing atmosphere and outstanding faculty. As with *any* child enrolled in *any* school, there were periodic rough patches, socially and academically, but I overcame these challenges. They made me a better, stronger person, and I am glad to have had these experiences. The school s sports program and academic trajectory has always been, at least, very good. Enrollment is increasingly, and, in particular, the class sizes of the younger grades are really expanding. This bodes well for the school and community s future."

    "An anonymous slanderer posted a comment on October 15, 2012, decrying the school's supposed political ideology and alleged culture of mediocrity and bullying. Saint Alexander is obviously a parochial, Catholic school but a *tolerant* Catholic school, at that. While I attended, I had Protestant classmates and a handful of peers from irreligious households whose parents sent them to St. A s solely based on its reputation as a PHENOMENAL school. These students simply did not make their sacraments with the Catholic students and graduated with their own faiths (or lack thereof) still intact. I am in touch with many of these non-Catholic former classmates, and they greatly value their experiences at St. A s. I think it says more about our anonymous slanderer than it does about St. A s that, all these years later, s/he is anonymously defaming the school on the Internet. If anonymous truly still feels that traumatized, then anonymous should seek professional help for his/her problems rather than dissuading parents from providing their children with a stellar education. In other words, this critic s problems are deeper than any issues related to this fine school. Long live St. Alexander"
