School Reviews

A truly WONDERFUL school!! I have two children who currently attend St. Ursula School, and they love the school. It is so nice to see my children happy and excited to go to school in the morning. The classroom environment is great! St. Ursula school is like a big family!

St. Ursula School is a wonderful school. It is conveniently located right off of 695 in Parkville. The quality of education is superior. St. Ursula School offers many activities for students, including band and choir. Parents are very involved with the school, and the students are very polite and respectful. I would highly recommend this school. St. Ursula School is also the most affordable of the Catholic schools in the area.
