St Paul Of The Cross School Reviews
Have a feeling there's a parent here with an axe to grind
I have a child here in PS, 3rd and 5th. We have been a part of this parish and school for over 6 years. I am extremely happy with the warmth and inclusion of the school, as well as the curriculum. This site should not let one person review multiple times. Incorrect information that hopefully does not influence others, come tour this wonderful school and find out for yourself.
I was hoping for a good quality Christian environment for my preschooler. I did NOT get what I was looking for. The preschool program has no defined spiritual curriculum, feels as though all 3 year olds should be the same and does not encourage self expression ( meaning they fix things when students do the art project " wrong",and has policies and procedures that are just not age appropriate ( sends 3 year olds ALONE to the bathroom down the hall and around the corner next to an exit door). The teacher is not approachable, warm or confident. Parents are not welcomed by this school, there is no encouragement of community or partnership, and I do not see any spiritual impact on the children. My child did not enjoy going to preschool here and neither did I. (Edited for content by Education.com staff)
I love this school. My daughter is in Pre k and she loves it too. Everyone is so nice and caring and I cannot believe how much she has learned already. She is only 3 1/2 and she amazes me everyday with the things she has learned.
The early childhood program is at best childcare...Teachers are more concerned with their breaks than taking the time to walk kids to their specials which they have to go to another building for...it has more the feel of a public school than your typiccal catholic school
This is a fine school with an amazing success story. I encourage anyone who is interested in sending their child to a Catholic school to come and visit St. Paul. Please witness the wonderful environment that your child will experience.
