My husband and I both went to this school and graduated in 01'. This year our daughter started the 1st grade. It was a wonderful school then and it is a wonderful school now.

I currently have a student attending this school and very disappointed with the teachers and principal. The principal does not seem to know what is going on.

I went to St. James and graduated in 1984. I am still familiar with it and I can tell you that little has improved since I left.

Myself and my child love this school. I went there as a child, as did my entire family. I'm 40 now and my 7-year old has attended for 3 years. The staf is excellent!

What a fantastic school. The kids come first here with a caring and dedicated faculty and staff. The children are safe in their secured building. From kindergarten through 8th grade the children are shallenged and taught at their individual level whether it is remidial or advanced.

Horrible. Never send your child to this school. The staff is unprofessional. Don't waste your time. Unclean, old, falling apart, horrible teachings and I wouldn't even let my child out on the playground!
