School Reviews

  • Recommended August 14, 2014 - I thoroughly enjoyed this school. The teachers called every week as per my request to let me know how my 12 year old was doing. We loved the camaraderie and Christian/Catholic background of everything there. No complaints other than I shouldn''t have sent my child back to public school. This school was worth it''s weight in funds!!! - Posted by Parent
