School Reviews

  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - My son is a freshman starting the school year 2012 at St. Bernards in Fitchburg. The staff and faculty are very professional and are prompt to address questions and concerns. The academics are top-notch and the school offers a wide variety of sports programs. The biggest plus has been the community atmosphere at this school. My son has already made many friends and the upper classmen have been very supportive of underclassmen especially on the athletic teams. If you are looking for a private education and a reasonable tuition bill, Bernards is truly worth a look. - Posted by Parent
