School Reviews

Our family has been absolutely thrilled with our decision to send our two girls to Villa Maria! They both have very different personalities, yet it is the perfect fit for each. There is a strong emphasis on incorporating technology into the classroom and projects. We LOVE the sports programs available at Villa! The coaching and competition has been terrific. Being able to play on a school team also made the transition to a new school very smooth for my middle schooler. Overall it''s great school, awesome teachers, great sports, perfect combination of faith and education!
