I was once attending Saint Amelia School and it's not what they are what they are meant to be. The school set's high standars, but does not follow them out, I feel that if you want your children in a "safer" environment you are better off by sending them to a public school or another high ranked private school.

First, I admit, it's been several years since my boys attended St. Amelia's School, but hopefully you can at least make sure to double check things out before you enroll there.

I never minded paying extra for my boys to attend school, after all they really did get an excellent education. But, then the bullying started and when I took my concerns to the principal, Mr. Mule, we were referred to the Dean of Students, Mr. Taylor, with the problems.

In all honesty, Mr. Taylor neither seemed to believe, nor care, about the problem. My son was being teased unmercifully in school, and yet it seemed that nothing was being done about it...until MY son snapped, of course.

Even after a conference with Mr. Mule, Mr. Taylor, the parents of the boy(s), my son, myself and my husband, the bullying didn't stop. At this point I was on the phone or in the school everyday trying to speak with someone, anyone, to get it to stop. Mr. Taylor, in his infinate wisdom, said that the other boy said my son always started it, and there was nothing to be done.

Eventually, the war of the words escalated into my son being physically assaulted. I took my son to school the next day, sat him down with Mr. Taylor, once again, had him tell what happened. Mr. Taylor said he would talk to the boy, and find out what happened. Of course, as always, the boy denied he did anything. When I came back to pick up my son from school that afternoon, and could find hide nor hair of Mr. Taylor, I took both my sons and pulled them out of that school, after being told by my oldest son that Mr. Taylor told him that the "next time" this happened he would hand all the boys their paperwork and tell them to go to other schools.

It didn't seem worth almost $2,000 a year in addition to school taxes to have my boys at St. Amelia's. We can get this kind of garbage in public schools for just the cost of school taxes.

Weigh your options VERY carefully before choosing this school.

PROS: Good Teachers, when they stay
CONS: Weak Administration, High Teacher turnover
