    We were at this school for 11/2. 5th & part of 6th grade. Teachers were fine. Parents kids are terrible. Pretentious and very cliquey. If you are not rich you have no voice. The rich kids bully the other kids and you have no recourse. My son was never given a chance by the other boys and I was rarely spoken to. Very unfriendly people. Administration only cares about the families who can donate money. I was a single working mom and was judged negatively because I worked. The other moms are as deep as a bath. There is no diversity at St. Cletus. The rich families run all the sports and events so their kids and their friends get all the good playing times. They price events so high$ that only the clique can afford to go. We could'nt wait to leave. Moved across the country and never looked back. Just wanted to give a heads up. Don't waste your money. It is very expensive to get treated badly.

    My two sons now attending St. Cletus represent the second generation of our family at the school with my wife and I meeting there and graduating in the same class many years ago. Throughout the years St. Cletus has given students a strong educational and religious base from which to grow and learn through their high school years and beyond. For us St. Cletus is more than just a school but an important part of our everyday lives and will be for many years to come.

    The teachers and staff are very caring and friendly. Each child is treated as an idividual. We are very proud and touched at how well rounded our children have become as a result of attending St. Cletus. St. Cletus is part of our family.

    Besides the top notch educational program for all grades technologically speaking we are head and shoulders above the local schools. There is also a great sense of community and faith. Love it!

    St. Cletus wasn't the closest Catholic school to our home but we chose this for our children because the faculty cares; the students care for one another; the messages learned during weekly Masses are carried throughout the school day. Life lessons are learned every minute of every day! Thank you St. Cletus Administration for nurturing teaching and caring about our children!

    So much to offer. I love that all the parents volunteer and are involved with their childs education. We researched other schools and found St Cletus to be the best.

    St. Cletus is a family that is there for one another.....in good times and in bad. I love that we partner with our outstanding teachers and principal to create an atmosphere that is best for our children. We care about outstanding education and faith filled teachings that will help our children for the rest of their lives.

    I must admit its a family network not only for school and religion. But for the interest of the child's long term education as well as there well being. The teachers and the staff here not only teach education. use their parenting skills on being fair and not leaving anyone out.This is a must in todays society. This is what makes us Saint Cletus
