School Reviews

Saint Clement is an excellent school. We have been parents in the school for nearly ten years, and we currently have two children attending. Every single teacher that we have encountered over our many years at Saint Clement has been excellent in all ways that we can imagine: highly effective and professional educators; proactive and responsive partners with the parents; keepers of an ideal learning environment; fun people to share our children with; warm, approachable, and caring individuals who ensure that all children feel safe and supported. Before we had children in the school, we attended an open house and were amazed at the older students who greeted us and spoke to us: intelligent, confident, mature, enthusiastic, open, well-spoken, self-motivated, and high-performing. Since we`ve been in the school, we also know the students to be far above average in the areas of caring and kindness, too. The school is very strong academically, while also flexible in meeting students where they are and giving most of them the support that they need. It is my understanding that in the end, most Saint Clement students are accepted at the high school of their choice and are well prepared for the next step. Without using bullet points, here are a few other thoughts: It`s a very safe and secure environment. Disciplinary matters are handled reasonably and effectively. Parent concerns are heard and addressed. Teachers and administrators communicate often and well, and also make themselves readily available. Volunteering is frequent and widespread. Parents are friendly, open, social, and positive. Families are generally happy. It`s cool to be smart. The kids love it there.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
