St. Sebastian Parish School Reviews
The teachers and administration at the school care so much about the students. There are so many activities for the students at all grade levels to get involved in that every child can succeed in something that is important to them. So many students move on to high school and take leadership rolls, get involved and take advanced level classes.
Student attrition rate & teacher/administrator turnover grows each year. Leadership has been pitiful resulting in a culture of stagnation & resistance to fresh perspectives. Academic achievement is the sole goal rather than teaching children how to learn. Teachers are not given the training, support and direction to teach children with different learning styles. The Principal's communication skills are non-existent. The Pastor fits better in a pre-Vatican II parish. So much emphasis on doctrine, procedure, and archaic Church traditions that children miss out on learning the importance of true Christian values in everyday life. Christ doesn't care if a kid knows the Stations of the Cross or all the words of the Act of Contrition or the Latin Mass, but He does care that kids treat others with respect, kindness, and charity as well as learn the value of social justice and the necessity of humility. To learn these true Catholic values it must be demonstrated by school leaders.
My only criticism would be I would like to have my child feel more included. He has a hard time making friends and I think the school could do a better job mixing the kids together.
