The minute I stepped into St. Jerome, I knew it was the place for my son. We transferred him for 6-8th grades and it was the best decision we have ever made. His confidence in himself and his work has grown so much. The teachers and staff really do treat the kids as if they are their own. The academics are challenging and the small classes ensure that your child will get what they need. Highly recommend!!!

St. Jerome School is Houston's "best kept secret". It is full of life, educational fun, and budding child minds. It is truly a community where parents, teachers, and students collaborate together to make a memories while students are exposed to a robust curriculum and learn so much to prepare them for college prep high schools. The facilities are wonderful, they have a vivacious sports program, and each teacher and staff member is dedicated to the well-being of each individual student. What I LOVE about this school is that each staff member knows each student. There isn't a day that goes by when I pick up my son where we are said "hi" to using our first names. I am going to be heartbroken when we have to leave this school after 9 years (K-8). Maybe they can add a high school later!
