St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School Reviews
The student body (and apparently many parents) are more interested in sports (lacrosse) than academic excellence. It seems many kids barely even try in school. Group projects are a painful ordeal for smart and engaged kids who want to do well. I believe offering some more advanced classes would group students of similar ablility and engagement, which would make for a more enjoyable experience for everyone.
Bottom line, if you have a very bright child, I would look for a more challenging environment for middle school.
