St Mary Star Of The Sea School Reviews
Small and Quaint
A small Oceanside community that could have a nice little private school.
Over-sized classes in some grades, lack of technology, and lack of high caliber education makes a parent wonder what tuition is being used for. Caring teachers that lack resources due to funds. Classrooms are old and run down, and family community tries to pull together but you don't have 100% and this is tough when the school is small. Getting parents involved in PTG when nobody is interested is wake-up call that the school has some challenges to deal with.
Principal can recite students that went on to other schools or graduated but there are new standards and new requirements moving forward. He can't address these with forward thinking agenda.
Older School with financial restraints
This school has a tight parent community and many teachers that ultimately care about their students. The Adminstration is lacking and does not get involved in the students nor the real needs of the school to retain additional enrollment.
We feel that the teachers are not entirely happy but need their jobs due to leadership.
The school is lacking technology and the up-to-date training that the teachers require to move forward into a Common Core education.
Financially the school struggles with obtaining new equipment. Parent donations and much fund-raising is required.
Missing Music, Theatre, and creative expression.
Lack of communication to parents from adminstration on how fund-raising is used.
Our student will not be returning after spending 3 years at school.
