    This is a good school. My daughter loves going there. It's out in the country and that makes it even more special!!!

    Bullying is a huge problem here! The turn over rate for staff and administration is very high. This is a school you can't just send your kids to and trust that decisions are being made in the favor of the children concerning their mental and physical well being. Bottom line is if you want your child to remain mentally and physically sound pick another school or you will be forced to continuously fight on behalf of your child.

    St. George is terrible. The discipline is awful. Bullying is a problem. Some teachers do not have good classroom management. I would not have your children attend thi school. They can't keep the same administration. Taxes pay for two superintendents when they need a full time person to deal with discipline.

    While preparing for the new school year and disgarding some old papers I noticed that when my child attended a different school in a different state they had more HW in kindergarten than in 1st grade. Personally I think that's quite depressing. Maybe we need to return to our previous residence if the ONLY CHOICE OF SCHOOL is this sad and pathetic one. How can you only offer one school choice in a consolidated community???

    The class sizes are decent and the I-SAT scores are good. I have no complaints about this school. The teachers and administration are great at communicating and are always looking for input. I know my son is attending a safe school.

    Ive gone to this school since I was in 3rd grade and I am now in 8th. I'm so happy that this is my last year here. I get in trouble for the STUPIDEST things. I got a detention earlier this year for using a calculator on an algebra MAP test. Whats worse is that I had asked to get the calculator and the teacher had said yes. After she saw me using it she gave me detention and said that "she thought i was using it for math homework". It was the dumbest thing ever and I honestly hate this school more than i have ever hated anything before. Most of the teachers are OK but some of them think that because theyre teachers theyre better than the students and its ridiculous. DONT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE

    More encouraged with the new Administration and some of the new staff. Like the small school setting. Disadvantage though with sometimes small town mentalities.

    Facility is great!! love the 5th grade teachers

  • (6 years ago)

    Nice sized school. Relatively small class sizes and a nice facility. Administration has been in turmoil for several years resulting in a lack of consistent direction. Veteran teachers have continued to succeed. Newer staff members have received little guidance and are not as likely to succeed. Sports programs tend to favor boys over girls (particularly in basketball). Band is excellent. Volleyball coaching staff is very good other sports coaches are not.

    With the overwhelming growth Administration should consider diversity training not only for the children but also for the Staff. I am impressed with the amount of communication between the schools Administrative staff and with Parents. My children appear to be learning many new things and becoming more comfortable with the transition.

    St. George school still is situated among an agriculture area and offers a small town environment but enrollment numbers are growing due to the residential development nearby. The school offers an excellent learning environment with good teachers and excellent administration. Most of the facility is 3 years old and will require another school addition within the next 2 years. Sports include boys/girls basketball girls softball boys/girls volleyball cross-country and cheerleading.

    great school! teachers are great!

  • (9 years ago)

    This school is going through a lot of growing pains. Large class size can be a problem. Old-school teachers are mixed in with modern ones. Be sure to visit in person before committing to this school.

    St. George has seen significant change over the last 2 years. The quality of education is getting higher and higher. The school has always been a great preparer for high school but now with the significant changes we are excited in seeing how much our children will be challenged and educated. The school board and administration are dedicated to making St. George a top performer in education.

    As a St. George alum my family and I are attempting to move back into the district so our children can have the same 'Raider Pride' that I have. Although it is not the school it was when I was there and enrollment was 94! Kathy Monahan I went on to have many teacher through high school and college. You by far had the largest impact on me. No one else volunteered themselves to stay after school to help me when it was questionable if my math skills could ever be saved. I hope my children are lucky enough to experience your classroom.
