St. Luke''s School has been everything that we could have hoped for when we enrolled our son this year. The faculty is amazing and could not ask for a better staff to provide our child with an educational environment that coincides with our faith.

I have 2 children attending this school and we have been a school family for 3 years. St. Luke provides strong academic programs as well as sports programs and various extra curricular activities. The children are taught with a strong faith filled foundation. The sense of family and community is unsurpassed, parents are encouraged to be involved and partner with teachers and school administrators to ensure the academic success of all of the students. Teachers are all top notch and truly care about all of the children and the network of parents ensure the children have a strong sense of security and and confidence. The campus is beautful, well maintained and super secure. The student population is wonderful. As a parent to see how much the older students love and care for the little ones is amazing. The priests are also very invloved and the parish and school have a wonderful partnership. We couldn''t ask for a better school for my children, we can''t imagine going to school anywhere else.

. Student involvement strengthens the connection to the community as a whole, caring for each other & their school. Entrusting children to St. Luke is a choice made knowing our children will be afforded the values we advocate including their religious, academic & social development. Family involvement in school & Church activities shows our children that we are part of a whole. Academics are strong & can be attributed to the dedication of the teachers & our family''s commitment to maintain homework, reading and extracurricular learning a priority.

St. Luke offered our family the chance for an integrated life where school, the practice of faith, the extra curricular life of my son, who his friends are, who my friends have become and the experiences we share together can all become part of a whole world that will have a lifetime of memories!

My son in the second grade and I loves it. Teachers are loving, caring and I really feel like part of a team working as one. The Principal is great and so is the staff. We are very blessed finding St. Luke and could not ask for a more well rounded school for my child.
