When I went here it was an average school. Big Sports teams and events..except this school was not for me cause I STUNK at sports! I did well though I didnt focus on all the sports teams(kind of hard because it was EVERYWHERE) Basically I came here to learn...not to play sports or to make friends!

I am completely disgusted with St. Tarcissus. They only cater to the average child and if you are above or below then you sink or swim all on your own.

The school is well run, both my girls go there. It is clickish, but so is everything else. They give the kids alot of homework, working and doing homework with the kids doesn't leave alot of extra time...but I keep trying.
