My two children attended St. James School and were there from Pre-K through Grade 8. It was a wonderful experience for both boys. Yes the fundraisers were always present and as a parent felt every time I turned around we had another one to do but I also understood that without these fundraisers tuition costs would rise so my husband and I always did the best that we could to participate in as many as we could. The faculty and staff at St. James is like no other, and it helped to prepare each child when they left the school to go onto to their respective high schools and excel. This school was a great experience for my children and St. James will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you

My child goes to this school, and I must say as a parent I am pleased with many facets there. I would like to see the teachers look like they enjoy their job more instead of always looking unhappy. But they get the job done !! A lot of fundraisers so get ready parents !! I like they allow the children to be children and celebrate holidays and do fun things with and for them during the year, which they look fwd too !!! They run a tight ship here, no fooling around during school hours at all, if you feel your child needs that atmosphere this is the school for you !!
