School Reviews

  • Recommended October 16, 2014 - This is without a question the best investment we have made in our daughters'' future. They love learning and each year seem to be more engrossed and interested in their studies. We have been particularly impressed with the Math and Science program. Lower School girls learn to love these subjects at a young age and by the time they are in Upper School they are doing research in a cutting edge Science facility. Their exposure to music, art, athletics and community service gives them the advantage of discovering new things about themselves and becoming confident, well-rounded citizens. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended October 16, 2014 - My daughter started at St. Catherines with Junior Kindergarten and is now in First Grade. My husband and I have been nothing less then thrilled with her development and progress. The teachers have all taken the time to learn the specific interests of their students and incorporated the specific interests within the lesson plans. I''ll admit I was doubting the ability of learning two foreign languages starting in Kindergarten but my daughter is so motivated and interested. She comes home and teaches us! Having a son, I can see first hand how boys and girls learn differently. St. Catherines puts so much thought and research into creating an environment for girls to be their individual best. Currently my daughter is very interested in math and science so the rapidly expanding STEAM initiative and new Science Building is particularly exciting. - Posted by Parent
