School Reviews

My two daughters have been at SBS for 5 years now. Every year we see vast improvements. There is a new administration very open to parent ideas and involvement. The PA has taken a very active role in fundraising and community building. The teaching staff are young, enthusiastic, energetic, and loving. My kids are getting a solid, traditional, morality-based education. There are not a lot of bells and whistles: the emphasis is on the basics without a lot of fluff. They are happy and thriving. It is not a school for everyone, but if you choose to send your children to SBS you will be welcomed, and feel a part of the fantastic community.

This is our 2nd year at Blessed Sacrament. The administration has been welcoming and responsive. ?The former vice principal, who is now the current principal, knew my child and our family within the first months of school. ?As a new parent to the school, the families have been warm and inclusive. ?The student body is diverse which was important to our city-based family. We looked at several schools that wouldn't break the bank for two children and would give us what we wanted/needed. ?We encourage you to do the same with Blessed Sacrament.

My son is in 2nd grade and he has been with Blessed Sacrament (SBS) since Pre-K4. We are very happy with the school. 1)Administration. The administration changed two years ago and we saw a significant improvement in the school. One impactful change was to assign two principals - one for lower grade (Pre-K to 4th) and another for the higher grade (5th-8th). 2) Academics. There has been an increased emphasis on academics and this is made clear to both the students and the parents. Online tools and the test/homework results that are shared with the parents help me understand my son's grades. Summer homework is great as they prepare my son for the next school year. I have observed tremendous progress in my son's learning during the school year and the end of the school year. 3) Technology. The school promotes technology as a means of teaching and educating the students. Each classroom has a smart board, teachers use online tools to interact with parents. My son was learning coding in computer class when he was in 1st grade. Each student has an iPad in computer class. 4) Afterschool. The school has an Aftercare Program and Afterschool Enrichment Program. Aftercare allows students to stay in school until 5:30 pm after regular dismissal. A teacher stays w/ the students in Aftercare and helps them do homework. The Enrichment program has an impressive portfolio of classes (soccer, chess, science etc...) Both Aftercare and Enrichment programs are organized by the Parent's Association. There are extra fees for these programs. 5) Character Formation. One would say that character formation is almost a given as the school is a Catholic school. Having gone to Catholic school myself, I can see that SBS fosters character formation in a more encouraging way, appropriate to modern times. Every month they have a character theme e.g. respect in October etc.. 6) Parent's Association. The school has a strong Parent's Association with dedicated and committed parents. The PA is a good foundation for the school. Fund raising activities are always fun for students and parents alike. 7) Indoor and Outdoor Space. Indoor common space is limited but the church has renovated its basement so the school has access to a huge space with new floors and a theatre! The PA is working with the Community Board to close the street in front of the school for outdoor space during school recess.
