School Reviews

We love St. Gregory''s. We switched our son from another Catholic school mid year last year. It was an easy transition because the teachers and students were very welcoming. The academics are top notch with a lot of homework, even in kindergarten. Discipline is fair. They try every avenue to work with kids. There are counselors and specialists available. The after school programs are great and affordable. There is a fabulous.parent volunteer group where parents can work off some if the tuition.

My family has been at the school for 9 years and we have been very impressed with the nuturing, faith-filled environment! The teachers are very knowledgable and thorough. And we truly know that the needs of the students are the first priority! Beautiful Catholic and holy place!
