The St. Anne School is very well-rounded. The staff, administrators and teachers provide a wonderful and safe environment for my child to learn. They are able to explore and develop as well because of this environment.

The St. Anne School offers excellent academics with great teachers. The curriculum and programs are diverse and interesting. It is a great school that provides for the whole child.

My daughter started at the St. Anne Preschool in September and absolutely loves going to school! The teachers are phenomenal and each day she comes home excited to share all that she learned - talking about working on the computer, singing songs about the days of the week (and itsy spiders), how she played dress-up with her friends.... I was hesitant to start her in school this fall as she isn''t even 3 yet but am so grateful that we decided to start her at St. Anne when we did. It has been such a rewarding experience!
