We are so pleased with the education and loving community at SVES. Our children were very prepared for high school with the high level of academic training they received. The teachers were always available and truly care about the students. Furthermore, while other schools are being made to cut the arts and extracurricular classes from their programs, SVES has an entire building dedicated to music, art and other elective classes such as Spanish, Powerpoint/Computer classes and Current Events. Sports teams such as volleyball, track and basketball are available for the junior high. The students learn to work in the their community while satisfying their required service hour commitments. The students graduate from this school being well-rounded, highly educated, responsible and caring citizens. We highly recommend SVES.

We have been so happy at SVES. The entire school community is warm and caring and the teachers genuinely want to see our children succeed. The academics are outstanding and our children enjoy the after school programs and frequent family events such as movie nights, carnivals, mother / son and father / daughter activities.

The quality of academics and teachers at St. Vincent Elementary School is unparalleled. The children are taught at an early age how to be real students. These lessons help them thrive in both high school and college. My grown children attribute their academic success to the excellent foundation they received from SVES.
