School Reviews

To me, Nativity is the little school with the big heart. Catholic education develops Christian character alongside academics. Families are very involved and most are down-to-earth people; Nativity does a great job of avoiding the pretentious atmosphere that characterizes some private schools in the area. Beautiful campus and constantly improving in all ways. Some class sizes can be quite large and there is a waiting list for most grades now that the secret is out about this wonderful school.
