School Reviews

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!
