School Reviews

  • Recommended October 05, 2013 - We moved both of our Sons to St Catherine for different reasons. The school has been a fantastic place for them to learn. We feel as though the teachers have really motivated them to become very strong learners. Now that we have experienced the Catholic school environment, we feel as though they have the ability and knowledge to get through high school and go to a good college. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 08, 2013 - St Cathernie is a wonderful school. We moved our Son to the school a year ago in 5th grade. He went from a boy that we really struggled with academically. He now is no longer in need of an I?I.E.P. He has become a very confident boy with a very caring personality. We moved him from a top five public school . We are so happy with the school. Our son says he is the happiest he has ever been. - Posted by Parent
