St. James Episcopal Day School offers an exceptional education for three-year-olds through fifth graders. Named a National Blue Ribbon School in 2009 and 2015, St. James is recognized for providing a foundation of academic excellence and spiritual formation within a warm and loving Christian community. Technology and project-based learning are utilized throughout the curriculum, with iPads and Apple TVs in all classrooms, and a one-to-one student to iPad ratio for our first through fifth grade students. Challenging academic basics are enhanced with our STEM lab, Spanish and physical education programs, broadcast and art studios, music, guidance, Christian education, and twice-weekly church services.

I hear nothing but positive words about St. James Episcopal Day. It's not just a school, it's a family. The teachers and staff know all of the children's names and are very kind and loving.

The review above is by their own faculty. Not a genuine atmosphere and certainly not diverse at all. All the good teachers have left in the past two years and there is not a lot of substance left.
