St Bernard Preparatory School Reviews
Excellent school, beautiful grounds. Very affordable, esp for boarding school. Monks a great plus. High standards for behavior and academic life. Would like a few more AP courses though. Lots of scholarship $ offered graduating seniors. Hope it doesn't get too big; small is great.
Very fine school. Close student body. Academics challenging, but teachers are supportive. All attend college. About a million dollars in scholarships earned per 10 graduates. Small is a big plus; athletic competition available to all. Not a pushover in discipline, but fair. High expectations in academic life and personal behavior. Strong Catholic presence; religious in administration and on faculty.
3 principals in 4 years.
St. Bernard Preparatory School is a major disappointment, The financial office is a disaster, the administration is weak and there is dysfunction among fac./staff. The majority of students are rude, (attend any athletic event), spoiled, (see above review or attend an athletic event) and mean-spirited, (displayed openly on various social networking sites). There have been 4 principals at the high school in the past 5 years. Before you invest your time, energy and money on this school, please ask people in the greater Cullman community, (particularly people who have lived in Cullman for many years), what they know or have heard about this school. Ask the many families who have left. At the very least, this school should be under the jurisdiction of a Diocese to minimize its dysfunction. At its current level of dysfunction, I'd give it 5 years to close and a black hole rating.
... It might have been better years ago, but this is the worst school i've ever attended. If you want NO social life, no clubs, no sports (there are SOME sports, but they never win except boys soccer and cross country), ridiculously strict rules, absolutely No internet (there's one, but it never works anyways), please come here and be the part of this school by paying high rate amount money that won't do anything good for the student's future.
