Great atmosphere for learning. And the teachers are extremely knowledgeable.

Not only am I an aluma of Saint James but I am also the parent of a current student. There aren't sufficient enough words to say how incredible this school is. The faculty and staff and top notch. The students are nurtured, as well as given the best education available in the state. They go beyond the educational lesson and also teach moral ones. They encourage the students and often times stay late or come in early to give extra help whenever it is needed. The student body is amazing. I have watched time and time again as they love rallied together to support one another in different endeavors. The students and their love for the school and each other is touching. I see it in my son's kindergarten class and I see it in the hallways of the middle and high schools. The beautiful facilities are on par with any university. Children at every grade level are working with the latest technology to prepare them for life outside of the classroom. The arts programs at St. James are some of the best in the state with award winning marching band, choir, theater, visual arts and speech and debate departments. The athletics programs are first class as well. With the varied activities made available to the students there is truly a place for everyone in the Saint James family. I can't say enough about this incredible school. I am who I am today because of Saint James and the wonderful teachers and friends I had there. My K-4 teacher still sends me notes in the mail when she sees me mentioned in the newspaper. I received more than an incredible education from my time at St. James. I received love and encouragement that helped shape me into the strong, confident adult I am today. I see it happening in my son and there is no greater gift a parent could ask for. Saint James is an absolute treasure.

I went to Saint James from middle school until graduation. As a military brat, I transferred into Saint James from a local public school where I was bored and bullied. STJ made me excited about school again. Yes, it was very challenging (I was in honors and AP classes) and, yes, I got stressed out, but you know what? Every bit of it paid off. I would not have done so well at college or graduate school if I had not had a firm educational base from Saint James. I am grateful to have learned from teachers with a wide range of non-academic and academic experiences, and I am still in touch with many of them. As some reviews seem focused on cliques and the idea of social exclusion, I would like to point out that I was a nerd and was accepted as a nerd - I did not feel pressure to be anything else, and I had plenty of friends in the art and theater departments who did not fit the traditional mold either. My main issues were with the school's need to continuously fundraise on top of the significant tuition expenses, and the administration's fairly conservative orientation. However, if you want the best college preparation in Montgomery, STJ is the place to go.

I think a few things that no one has addressed in this school review 1. The amount of drug and alcohol use. My child was offered drugs daily in his freshmen year was hazed because he didn't use drugs or alcohol. 2. Support for student athletes. The demand from sports and practice is a huge drain on time and effort and grades will suffer. Access to tutoring is available but practice is long and hard and if grades slump there is little flexibility and you can be kicked out of school for low grades. 3. The school has its cliques like most but these are very exclusive and hard for a new student or one who doesn't fit in the ideal cliques.

As someone who was always at STJ, for ten years, it's great to send your kid for elementary school. Middle school & high school, not so much. 90% of the teachers & coaches are wonderful. I would never go back or send my child there until the adminstration and toxic atmosphere are changed.
