St Charles Borromeo School Ratings & Reviews

St. Charles Borromeo School in Tacoma has not had a female principal since 1985 so the previous review must be another school. I have had four children go through St. Charles and they received an excellent education. The teachers are great, the facilities beautiful and the school has a strong connection with St. Charles Borromeo Parish. The tuition is very reasonable - in fact is one of the least expensive private schools in the area. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

I believe that the previous reviewer is referring to a different St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School. The scene she is describing definitely does NOT fit the profile for our school. First of all, we have a male principal named Dan Hill who is outstanding and highly involved. Classroom management is great in the lower grades. The kids are challenged appropriately to fit their unique personalities, the teachers are warm and caring and take so much pride in nurturing the children's academic, emotional and spiritual needs. We came from a public school in Tacoma and were nervous to make the switch to private school but this school stood out in terms of academic preparation through middle school and parent satisfaction in the lower grades. We couldn't be happier and it has been worth every penny. My girls are thriving here, have made tons of new friends and the parent and teacher involvement is top notch. We highly recommend St. Charles!

Incredibly involved parents at the school though can be clicky at times and thankfully it is not apparent to the students. The rigidity of many teachers, the "cookie cutter" approach to education, and the unwillingness to alow students to achieve their full academic potential is unfortunate, however. With the overhaul of the junior high math program things may get better. The religious aspect of the school is not overbearing. There are some very good teachers, but they control the outcomes more than the principal. There must be a tenure-track for teachers because some seem to linger for years without performance to show the exceptional quality parents expect from a private school.

A good solid catholic education can be acheived at this school. The teachers are dedicated and work very hard to make sure that the students learn. The only 'negative' would be the constant requests for money and the all to frequent parent meetings.
