I''m considering moving back to Pittsburgh and I''m originally from Wilkinsburg, I also attended St. James when I was in middle school. I would like information non your school, quality of teachers and academic programs. Tuition and is it a safe environment? Please advise and thank you in advance for your cooperation. I''m also looking at possibly placing a 1st grader and a 5th grader.
