Student Testimonials

What I like about St. James the Less School is the beautiful and huge church. I like it because it has a big mosaic of Jesus on the cross. My favorite part of being in church is going to Mass with the whole school.

My favorite thing about St. James the Less is that you make friends quickly. I am new here and on my first day at St. James I made about ten friends. I also like the sports curriculum. I really like the church services in the school.

I like St. James because most of our teachers are really understanding. I especially like my teacher out of them all because she is strict but very funny and nice. I like reading because Mrs. B. makes it really fun!

My favorite thing about St. James the Less School is that we learn about Jesus. When we learn about Jesus it makes me feel so happy because I know that Jesus is with me. The other thing is that I like it when we play in the gym and learn how to play sports. We also have good lunches. My favorite thing is that we make good friends.

What I like about the St. James the Less School is all of the kids and teachers. Most public schools can’t say the name “Jesus",  "Christ” and “Christmas.” At my school we begin the day with prayer and end the day with prayer. We have the opportunity to sing in the Mass choir. We also learn about religion.
Fourth Grader

I like St. James the Less School because you get to learn about Jesus and God. We have religion lessons and go to Mass each week. Some of the things I have learned about in religion are the rosary, the Saints, and stories of the Bible. Some of the things I have learned in Mass are the Lord’s prayer, the Eucharist and many songs. Another thing I like about St. James the Less School is our principal. Mrs. Schwab is a great principal. She cares about everyone in the school. She is really nice and always seems happy. I hope I can always go to a catholic School.
