9 Parent Reviews for Bellarmine Jefferson High School
Most of the teachers are lame and the school need to hire more qualified ones. I am glad there is a new principal and I hope he will uplift and bring a lot of changes in school. The favoritism is so obvious and the upperclass counselor is so weak and can easily be manipluate and intimidate. He choose
... Read more valedectorians blindly without the overall considerations on what other students contributes to other school activities. It's so pathetic that the recent valedectorian coudn't even pass any AP exams. It is a joke. It's not worth to spend that kind of tuition for sub standard school. Read less

So, that means that the Paying Customer is geting Gypped,
... Read more while the Volunteers are getting a FREE RIDE! SO WRONG!!! Also, the Big Money Pull-Tabs they sell there are being opened First by those who are selling them. In most Bingo Establishments that's not supposed to work that way!! Even if they're paying for them, they're getting first dibs before the regular paying Customers! It looks Shady on the occasion when one of them Wins $! When you're selling them and playing them, it's a Conflict of Interest!! I've also seen with my Own Eyes things that aren't Kosher!! To me and others that are on the same page, they agree that this place is Run Unfairly!! Since this is a Catholic School, maybe they Should Go to Confession!!! It's great that they got rid of sis cheryl! :) Read less

Parents, save your money - this school is not even close to a college-prep school. Unless changes occur, such as cleaning house and replacing teachers who are just there for a paycheck, students will not be ready for the academic rigor and challenges that is expected from them in college. It is unfortunate

This school has really gone down hill in the last five years, maybe even more. There is horrible leadership under the principal. She is condescending to parents, faculty, staff and students. Academics are mediocre and in no way are students prepared for college. Although some teachers are great, most

Bell-Jeff was a poor choice for us. The school was an open campus with students roaming the halls un-supervised. The principal 'Sister Cheryl' did not want to take a leadership role and had a 'hands off' approach to the educational concerns of parents. For us it was a wasted year of tuition and i would
