St Edmond Catholic School Ratings & Reviews
The school had a mission statement saying" where values and academics meet". They should go back to it. Academics are restricted. Poor class offerings due to financial restraints and low student population. The school has not had a national merit finalist for years. An indication of poor performance. St. Edmond has become a feeder program for ICCC. Not surprising considering who is on the school board. Values come from the top, unfortunately they forgot to take Ethics 101. Administration and school board are unchristian and unethical in how they deal with people who don't belong in the "club". Sorry but true.
This school is terrible. The administration lacks function, the guidance counselors are jokes, and mental health is nonexistent along the students that aren't rich, white, popular, or don't have influential parents in the school. The principal only cares about the test scores, and really doesn't care if you are being bullied. I have seen at least 10 people leave because of bullying by the same 6 kids. The principal refuses to do anything because their parents are all huge donors. I was bullied relentlessly by the same 6 kids. No one cared. The teachers all looked away. Values and Catholicism are clearly not valued at this school. Save your money and go somewhere else. Your wallet and mental heath will thank you. -A former student
I feel my children are safe here. I feel my children have excellent teachers here. I have had very positive interactions with school administrators, and the office staff, hands down, provides exceptional services for students and families. I have experienced other schools in our area, out of state, and abroad. Of all of the schools I have experience with, I feel that Saint Edmond Catholic School is the best choice for our children's education. I truly have seen all of our family's educational, and spiritual, needs actualized by joining the Saint Edmond community. The decision to send our children to a private school was not an easy one to make, but we've been very blessed with the ability to do so. There are many available avenues for enrollment, and if considering this school, I truly recommend it on many levels.
Great school for academics and college preparation. Poor school for following through with "said" values, as principle ignores much of the bullying that goes on among students and coworkers. She would rather have a physician's child who bullies at the school, as opposed to a child from a middle class family that is getting bullied. The principle was never truly ready for this role as she used to tell students, "I thought you would have been more like your brother accademically", this is sure not to help students self-esteem. A principle is needed who will actually follow the values set forth by this Catholic school; the hypocrisy must end and the first step is getting rid of the "yes, man" principle and finding someone who can stand -up for the true values of Saint Edmond, and make it a great place to go to school. Get real: stop the hypocrisy.
Very good teachers and learning environment. The school board seems to very engaged and the staff are very proactive.
