St. Patrick School Ratings & Reviews
I have had two students recently graduate from this school. They were very well prepared for college and career ready! Graduating with college credits and experience they went to the college of their choice not only with credits but significant scholarships as well.Teachers were easy to communicate with, students were encourage to participate in many activities and become part of the community.I don't understand the other two reviews. Our experience was a good one!
If you will notice, the good reviews on this school arein/before 2006 . Since then school it has declined. Most of the good teachers have retired. My family was asked to leave over something I was supposed to be overheard saying, that was negative about the school, which I never said. The people who were having a conversation next to me both went to the admin., told them that the were the ones that made the comment and it had nothing to do with me. Even with this information, the school would not reconsider and let my family return. How's that for Christian? The school also accused my child of being a cyber bully, even though she was the one being bullied on fb. She never even responded to her bully's comments but he friends did respond and the bully deleted the thread, went to the office and claimed she was being threatened by my child, and based on only her accusations my child was labeled a bully. When my child's friends went to the admin to defend her, I was told that they were just lying to protect a friend as teens will do. So what does that say about the Christian values they claim to instill in students. It used to be a good school. Don't waste your money.
My 7th grader had to be taken out of this school 2 months before the end of the school year because of bullying. We were recruited during a drive to sign up noncatholics. They downplay the religious aspect and push the small class size and scholarship outlook. If you are not Catholic, just don't do this. My child was told she was a "bad person" and was going to go to hell. Nothing was done to stop this. Many times the answer to questions in science class was "God made it". If you are preparing your child for the 12th century instead of the 21st, this might be acceptable. The parents are mean-spirited and this, unfortunately is picked up on by their children.
St. Patrick's has a terrific program of academic excellence blended with truly outstanding college placement records. Students placed at MIT, Tulane, Holy Cross, Notre Dame, Centre College and UK--many on full tuition scholarships. The high school teachers are awesome--caring about the individual within the student. The music programs in elementary, middle and high school are exceptional--placing several students each year in All-State Choral Groups, winning superiors in solo and ensemble instrumental competitions and sponsoring musical productions which are extremely well-received through the community. In addition, the religion program allows an open discussion of moral issues and ethical behavior--two areas that should be emphasized in today's world. My last child graduates in May--spanning almost a decade from oldest to youngest. I am grateful to St. Patrick's for so many warm and wonderful memories. It's a great place to get a great start in life!
St. Patrick's School not only prepared me for college success but also success in life. The Christian environment in the school enhanced what my parents taught me at home and instilled in me the value of service to others. Christian values, academic success and the extra-curricular activities of this school was the reason that my children now attend St. Patrick's.
