School Reviews

I would recommend St James School to anyone. St James has great teachers that do a great job educating kids. Because of small class sizes the teachers can give students more help if they need it. Mrs. Naimey is a very good principal. Parent involvement is very good too. I wish my son enjoyed sports because St James has a lot to offer for sports. St James has a wonderful music and arts program. All this make St James School a five star school. Please call 282-4084 if you would like to schedule an appointment.
