School Reviews

  • Recommended April 12, 2013 - This is our second year at St. Al''s, and we are extremely pleased with the school. Our kids are challenged academically and thriving socially. The school staff is amazing; they care so much about the "whole student," and appreciate each child''s unique gifts and abilities. LOVE the single-gender middle school. Great concept! - Posted by Parent
