Student Stories

Henry, 1st Grade

1. What do you love about St. James Episcopal Day School?

“The nice teachers and all of my friends, but one of my favorite things is watching Bayou St. James especially when I get to be on it!"

2. Describe one of your favorite teachers and tell why she is a favorite.

"Mrs. Tyler is my favorite because she doesn't ever yell and teaches us so much stuff. She is really patient and helps me understand things better when I get confused.”

3. In what ways have you grown in your faith as a result of your time here at St. James?

"Mrs. Carter is a great teacher and I have learned that everyone sins but because I love God and have accepted Jesus into my heart all of my sins are forgiven. My favorite days are when we sing in chapel and my parents come.”

4. The St. James Day School tagline is “Excellence, Faith, Community.” How do you experience excellence at St. James?

"We are a blue ribbon school, which means everything we do is excellent!”

5. What would you tell another student, who goes to another school, to encourage them to consider St. James?

"Come to St James it is the most awesome school with an amazing science lab, playground and smartest teachers ever. I love that everyone knows who I am by name (the kids and the teachers) and the big kids play with the little kids too!”
