School Reviews

It seems that every employee of St. Anthony knows every student at the school by name. The Principal; staff and teachers are caring and they support the students. Another thing I like about St. Anthony is the behavior and politeness of the students. My children are very comfortable and make good grades at St. Anthony. I''m happy they attend St. Anthony.
