I have two kids at MPB, have been at the school for four years at couldn't be happier.

We sent our son there for kindergarten and within a month completely regretted our decision. We withdrew him at winter break. His teacher was extremely unprofessional and unfit to work with children. She told us our son needed medication but, after consulting with professionals because of her
... Read more constant complaints about him, it turns out that she is just incompetent and our son is a perfectly normal five year old. She constantly criticized our parenting decisions instead of trying to find ways to work with him and when I tried to communicate with the administration I got no response. This school is a joke. Most of the people that attend also go to church there and if you don't, just forget it. It's very cliquey and judgmental. They are so wrapped up in their little bubble and own (wrong) self image that they can't even begin to see how sub par they are. We transferred our son to our local public school instead. He will have six less children in his class with two full time teachers and he is now behind his new class academically. I could never recommend MPB to anyone. I can't believe we were paying for such horrible treatment and education. Stay away. Read less

If I could go into the negatives, I would. The incompetency is overwhelming. Twice now my son was left out in below freezing weather with once without his hat on, which was in his backpack waiting for 20 minutes, and a second time when it was 8 degrees outside with no gloves on, nor his snow boots.
... Read more Both times his items I listed were in his backpack, the second time he was outside in the snow and 8 degrees for over 20 minutes. The Vice Principal was who I spoke with on the first occasion, and apparently it is the schools motto for the adults to not take any responsibility, because the Principals reaction was the same. My child is only 5, I expect the adults to take action and do what is RIGHT and RESPONSIBLE, I did not feel at all that is what happened at this school, but rather a total lack thereof. Read less

Also as a former student of Most Precious Blood School, I believe very strongly that my parents sending me to MPB was one of the best things they could have done for me. Now, I've been able to get into classes in high school that I never thought I would be able to get into. MPB not only focuses on

Also, as I am a very artistic person, I feel that MPB brought my creative side out even more with a great, exciting art class, interesting and educating library experience, challenging and fun technology period, and much more. This strongly based faith community combined with rigorous academics is the place to be! Read less

I think MPB has been a wonderful place for my children. They are clearly receiving a very high-quality education, as the curriculum and expectations for them are very high. I am certain they are well beyond their peers at other schools, and the homework regimen, which is quite rigorous, has become

I would agree that this school is not for students who may need substantial remediation, as the regimen of both classwork and homework and the high curricular expectations are too difficult and there seems to be nothing formally in place to deal with these issues. However, for a good many students, the rigorous expectations and demands of this school will serve them well, and it is all accomplished in a place of enormous acceptance and consciousness of the needs of the world at large.

As a former student of this school, I just want it to be known that MPB and the teachers there were the reasons I lasted through elementary and junior high.
