St. Gerald School is a very welcoming place. The teachers, staff, and students are great! Our children have excelled beyond what we were hoping for.

St. Gerald School has been one of the top Catholic schools in the Omaha area for many years. We researched all of the Catholic schools in Omaha before we moved a few years ago. We are so pleased that we had made the right decision. Our children love it. One of our children is a straight A student

Our experience at St. Gerald School was nothing but great! Our children had the best learning opportunities that we could have hoped for. They are now high honors students in high school, and we attribute that to the outstanding Catholic education that they received there. The principal and the teachers

The students are friendly and well disciplined. They understand that they are to treat each other with kindness and respect. Our children were fortunate to have attended St. Gerald School! They will always remember their caring teachers and the friends that they made there. I can't help but feel sorry for the 'sour grapes', overprotective mothers in the previous postings who didn't feel that their children fit in there. In those cases, whose problem was it really?

I consider myself to be a tolerant and 'glass half-full' person, but even I had a hard time justifying keeping my child in this school. Our child was a victim of bullying - we worked with the staff and principal and saw no changes or improvements. I would agree with many of the previous of posters,

Don't believe what the three previous reviews have so hatefully stated. St. Gerald School is a great school! But every school has some flaws including whiny, self-centered parents. These are parents who are control oriented people who would only be satisfied if they could run the school. The experience

The curriculum is challenging, and the teachers and principal are loving and caring professionals. We have been very pleased with the Catholic Christian attitude that prevails throughout the school. We sent our children to St. Gerald's to receive a high quality religious education, and we have not been disappointed! We are glass half full people.

This school has major issues with staff, curriculum and student behavior. The staff is just seem to be 'punching the clock', no sense of loving their job or wanting to inspire students. The teachers are also woefully unwilling to break up cliques and stop bullying. The principal is a great guy, but

The curriculum is average and they certainly have no advanced courses available other than one-on-one attention for gifted students.
