School Reviews

  • Recommended November 07, 2013 - If you are looking for a faith-based, challenging academic environment that is also nurturing, St. James is an excellent school. They offer three world languages, small group learning for math and science (based on academic level), a performance-based academic enrichment program, a wide variety of sports and extracurricular activities, community service groups, a challenging curriculum (utilizing the honors grading system), and a heartfelt family environment. We moved our children from a different private school to St. James and have been so pleased with the level of education and professionalism of the entire staff. I highly recommend all that St. James has to offer. - Posted by Parent
