School Reviews

Saint Anne was a great school. I was employed as a teacher and department chairman there for 16 years. These 16 years were the best l6 years in a career of over 40 years in all kinds of public and private schools. The teachers were great, the music and art programs were superb. I had the privilege of accompanying a group on "outdoor education" once-it was a great experience. The academic awards were such that we were told to make our presentations " brief and to the point" so we could be done in the time allotted. Great School.

I went to Saint Anne back in the late 70''s, early 80''s. I was a scared kid, bent on destruction. I can, in all honesty say that St. Annes saved my life! The teachers and the staff were second to none. The School itself was fantastic. I may not have had ''freedom'' but I found love within those walls. The most important lessons I ever learned in life were learned there. I even tried to go back after I got out. I always felt safe there. If you have a troubled daughter, PLEASE try to get her in Saint Anne. She may hate you for a bit but later, she will thank you!

Saint Annes is a great school. I was there in one the most diffuclt times of my life. Thy gave me the thearpy, schooling and skills to become a successful adult in the community. The school is great. I loved the one on one attention I got from the teachers and counslers. They helped me to get back on track. Without them I do not know where I would be now. I graduated in 2003 and I thank Saint Annes everyday that they were there for me. It is a great school with a great program for students and there families. I would highly reccomend it to anyone who is considering sending their teen there.
