Maternity Bvm School Ratings & Reviews

One of my daughter graduated from this school and my second daughter is in 7th grade right now. In the beginning of our journey as a parents sending kids to a catholic school it was great because we didn't know any better. As years and years of sending my kids here it becomes a nightmare. The tuition is cheap compare to other schools but all other miscellaneous expenses that did not mention is outrageous. Carnival ticket each family is mandatory to sell tickets worth $250 if not you ended up paying it yourself. Script program that should be the parents choice if they want to join or not but at BVM is mandatory also or else they will add $200 extra on your tuition. There alone your almost $3000 and that is not as cheap as other school. The sports in this school is also a joke, you pay to join and that's ok but the problem is the coaches are one of the parents, so what you think happens? There kids are the only one play while the other players that pay same amount and practice same time as their kids never get the chance to enjoy the game. Yes, that is based on our experience and when we complain the school brushed it off. My son will be a kindergarten and he is going to a different school it might be a little higher but at least they are honest and no hidden charges while your in. Carnival ticket 8s not mandatory and either is the script program. They are not money hunger like BVM tuition has to be paid by May and previous school year is not even over yet. The school my son will go to August 25th that's like a week before school year starts and not like 3 months in advance. Also if you are not a kind of parents that will be helping the school for free your kids will not be chosen for any activities in school. If I were you pick other school besides BVM, but if you dont have a choice good luck and don't say no one warns you.

Maternity BVM is the best thing that has ever happened to me. The teachers and faculty are always so nice to all students and parents. The students are always welcoming and supportive of new people that join our school community. I’ve always thought of BVM as a home and have loved all my time there. I’ve attended for 10 years now and loved every minute of it. BVM encourages kids to be the change and lead instead of follow I think BVM in an amazing school for all people

It took us 5 years to accept the fact that this “Catholic” school is a hypocritical joke. They preach Catholic tenants to our children and turn around and do the exact opposite. I’m pretty disgusted by the leadership and no longer feel comfortable sending my child to this “institution.” Their highest priority is money... your tuition. The second priority is how they will get money. And their third priority is when they will get money. Somewhere down the line is the education and wellbeing of your child... perhaps the tenth or eleventh priority. Coming from a school that profits a quarter of a million dollars from their annual carnival (that has recently been wrought with violent attacks on attending/parish families that have seemed to go unnoticed, unacknowledged and unaddressed or perhaps completely ignored by the school), you’d almost consider this establishment a for-profit business first, and a school second.They boast a low tuition rate but fail to mention a few extra provisions and expenses casually added to the tuition at the parents expense until you are saddled in. It’s almost predatory. If you can afford tuition at another, more honest, school that actually practices what they preach to your children, I’d highly recommend doing so.

Maternity BVM is a catholic grade school that involves the faith and academic aspect. As a current 8th grade student who attended this school for 10 years, I have made so many wonderful memories and will continue to cherish them. Although the school may not fully challenge you academically, it does NOT tolerate any form of bullying and disrespect. The pastor here is very understanding and kind, as he teaches us Theology Class in our 8th grade year. Although the principal does have an bad attitude issue, Mrs. Z will treat you with respect and listen to your perspective. Throughout my 10 years here, I have grown and developed so much in my skills that I specially credit my teachers and friends for supporting me so much. In 7th grade, I won a high-school sponsored essay contest from my school and was chosen to present it in front of an audience. A negative side about this school would be that some teachers have attitudes but are quickly fired. All in all, sending your child here will truly be a success and blessing if you really want them to become deep-rooted Catholics.
