Saint Ann Catholic School Reviews

St. Ann’s is a wonderful place to receive a classic Catholic education. The Principal is a great leader who is very fair and receptive to feedback. She has built a staff of excellent classroom teachers who always have a smile for the students and demonstrate that they genuinely care. The staff of specials teachers know their stuff. The LAE teacher is the best in the business, as St. Ann students are excellent writers. The resource teacher is phenomenal. The Art, PE, Spanish and Computer teachers are also very good.
The St. Ann community is comprised of a close knit, supportive and genuinely nice group of families. There are lots of fun, community building activities to enjoy. The CYO sports program is excellent.
The result of an education at St. Ann’s? Students who are genuinely nice, well mannered, well rounded and prepared for some of the best high schools in the area.

Saint Ann has a lot of potential, but it is lacking in several areas. The pros are: Small family feel, wonderful families and students, wonderful basketball program, small class sizes relative to public schools in the area, a few excellent, dynamic teachers. Some of the cons are: Overly strict rules with consequences that don't fit the behaviors, many ineffective teachers who are too old-school and unwilling to change, curriculum and teaching in general are too traditional (not dynamic and not up to par on the latest educational research), WAY too much homework with an excess of busy work, high teacher attritian rate. This may be a good choice for students who have no issues, both behaviorally or academic, and who are very involved in the church. I do not feel like my child is getting a great education and really understanding concepts and she lives in fear of being reprimanded constantly.
I can understand the initial appeal of this school. It is small, quaint, lovely families and children. We have learned that this school needs a lot of improvement. St. Ann has a very "old school" approach, with very little dynamic teaching and a lot of lecture/worksheet type of learning. This works for some, but kids who may need assistance or have different learning styles are left in the dust. The leadership at this school means well, but communication is not up to par. In addition, St. Ann has an overly strict environment where children have little to no voice. I can think of many times where my child or classmates were punished severely for something minor, or something they did not do in the first place. Teachers and administrators use a shame/blame approach. The pace of teaching and the way of teaching that is not effective. I wish I had more positive things to say, but the public schools in the area provide a much more well-rounded education.
