BSS is a wonderful community. The principal, teachers, assistant teachers, nurses, aides and volunteers all go out of their way to work together to care for the children at this school. The best part of the school is that it is small with a family atmosphere. The classes are challenging - even the

Unfortunately, this school has not lived up to expectations. The teachers seemed to be overwhelmed. When trying to reach out, many times they respond they do not have enough time to respond to parents. Not a single teacher leads an extra curricular activity! The only emphasis is on behavior and not

Laughing is discouraged at all times. The principle, when brought tries to play the role of arbiter, allowing the inmates (teachers) to run the asylum. Her main focus seems to be fundraising.

There is a lot of bullying going on in this school. Staff and principal pretend to care. Don't be fooled by the "Blue Ribbon" award advertisement. It's more about exaggerated quantity of work, than quality education. There are no good resources for the children, classrooms are overcrowded, extracurricular

We LOVE Blessed Sacrament. From the Principal down to the Teacher's Aides, everyone is so kind and caring. The teachers are very well qualified and create projects that the kids enjoy. All of the children from grades K-8 know each other and are so supportive of each other. I can't imagine my kids

Outstanding! This is the kind of school where the principal will know each child's name and the superb staff can do the same. From the Early Childhood Education Center to the eighth grade, children learn to care for others, be responsible for themselves, and help out in the community. At the close of

Students here seem to love to learn and are encouraged to think for themselves in a safe, cheerful, respectful environment. Specialty classes are introduced in kindergarten. In first grade students select which foreign language to study for the next 8 years. This school is academically challenging but students tend to thrive and enjoy school! Lots of parent support here -working with dedicated teachers to prepare children for life! Read less
