School Reviews

Our two boys attended St. Patrick School until they were off to high school, and they were well prepared by St. Patrick School. It has great teachers and staff, tremendous participation from school families, and strong support from the parish. It is a wonderful environment for learning and growth, and it teaches our Catholic faith well. We highly recommend it for anyone looking for a great school for their own children.

My child is benefitting tremendously from the preschool program at St. Patrick School. This is an excellent community school and I look forward to sending my two children all the way through 8th grade!

St. Patrick's is an excellent school with smaller classes, exceptional teachers and leaders and offers an intimate Catholic based education.

St. Patrick Schools is the best thing we ever did for our children's education. i couldn't imagine them or want them any other place but here, where every morning they are greeted with a Good Morning and called by their first name and a hand shake by, The Principal and The Father. Rain, blizzard, snow, or 105 degrees they are out there. Amazing teachers who care, and where kdg' best friend may be a 3rd grader. The little school where everyone knows everyone by first name. You should come check us out, it is worth it.
