St. Jerome is a horrible, horrible unsafe school. DO NOT send your children to this school! The principal and staff absolutely do not care about student safety, or about them at all. They love to brush bad things that happen under the rug... Never trust your precious child with them.

The parents/families and most of the teachers are really great. The principal is a disappointment. He is not "hands on". He does not seem to care when there is a problem. He does not reply to emails in a timely manner (I have had to email him two or three times for simple answers which eventually

My children have attended St Jerome for the last 10 years. I believe St Jerome had great teacher retention, extracurricular activities and parental involvement until the last 4-5 years. Over the last few years, we have had almost all of our teachers turnover and a large amount of student attrition.

In my opinion, appeals to the administration and diocese have been largely unaddressed. I would not recommend this school to other parents until a change in the administration occurs and a plan was in place and being followed to correct these issues. Read less
