School Reviews

St. James School is now led by Naomi Carrier & provides excellent academics as well as a variety of extra-curricular activities at no extra charge, including access to the Performing & Visual Arts Workshop located on campus. Tuition is very reasonable & an excellent value for what is offered. Staff is loving & the children are happy and confident. Ms. Carrier has been with the school for most of it's history & is working hard to upgrade the facility to make it match the school's excellence.
