Yes its true ms. santiago was not an open minded person, however her replacement, Mr. Ogando has been the complete opposite. He has replaced and repaired the damage the previous administrators had done. He has brought back school spirit evident in the increased enrollment in his three years as principal. Bottom line; the kids love him. SJV alumni, We Need Your SUPPORT NOW.

I have been a St. John Vianney parent since 1999. The school has gone through many transitions--new administration, teachers retiring, etc. Prior to January 2008, I highly recommended this school to friends and co-workers. The new principal, Mrs. Judith Santiago, has disappointed both staff and parents on many levels. My 6th grade daughter had an unhappy experience last week where a couple of older boys allegedly used inappropriate towards her. It was late in the evening when she reluctantly shared this with me. I immediately emailed Mrs. Santiago, demanding an explanation, as no one from the school had bothered to call me. Although Mrs. Santiago received the first three emails I' d sent her--once in January when I welcomed her to the family, and two in February where I had homework questions--she suddenly and mysteriously no longer has an online account. Tried calling the school NINE times the following day--NO ONE answered! My husband managed to contact Mrs. Santiago and she assured him she'd call me immediately. Half an hour later, cell in hand, no calls came from Mrs. Santiago. I contacted my husband at work again since he obviously had better luck reaching her than I. Mrs. Santiago lied to my husband, claiming she'd called me several times, but I had not picked up. She repeated this LIE again this morning as the parents of the boys and I met with the principal and guidance counselor. When I repeated that she was a LIAR, Mrs. Santiago stared in confusion. Staff has also confided that they are harassed at work; complaints to the pastor result in nothing. Other parents have complained to the Archdioceses to no avail.Under the supervision of Mr. Albert Vazquez, Saint John Vianney blossomed into a dynamic school where children behaved like good Christians inside and outside school, where teachers called me any time my daughter felt ill, scraped a knee, sneezed. This was the loving attention and concern that made me continue my partnership with this Bronx school, even after my family and I moved to Rockland County. My daughter entered SJV in Pre-K, and it was our fondest wish to watch her receive her confirmation and graduate with her friends in two years. We are convinced that it is in the best interest of our child to remove her from SJV and place her in a Rockland public school, where her academic and social needs will be better met. I refuse to witness this once beautiful school being run to the ground.
