School Reviews

  • Recommended October 05, 2013 - We are very proud to say that our two children attend The Nativity School. They are receiving a top notch education in a faith-based environment. The teachers are well educated and also very caring. Our children love the music and art programs as well as the sports offerings. The school spirit at Nativity is exceptional! Our whole family has made many friends at Nativity and we have felt very welcomed from our first day. The school does a great job of integrating the different grades to create friendships of all ages. Overall, we think the school''s motto "Where hearts and minds grow great and true" says it all. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 26, 2013 - The Nativity school is exceptional! The teachers are outstanding, really get the kids excited about what they are learning. Communication at this school amazes me, so organized and I feel we are always informed. If you are looking for a place that your child will be excited to go to everyday and where you will always know what''s going on at school this is the place. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 26, 2013 - The Nativity School has been a great fit for our family, both for the children as well as for us parents. The class sizes are small, with many lower grades having teacher assistants in addition to the full time teacher. Our son has a vision problem, and the teachers have been consistently attentive and helpful. The academics are challenging, the teachers are professional, well educated and caring teachers, the specialists are excellent, and the students can really be themselves at Nativity. They feel comfortable with the classmates taking risks, and enjoy being on school teams together. We joined their church parish, which has enabled us to bond with the church and school community as a whole. We feel confident our children will be happy and well cared for at the school, and that is all you can really ask for as a parent. It is well worth the tuition as many public schools in the area have much larger class sizes and have cut specialists, as well as compared to other local private schools, where tuition is almost double that of Nativity. - Posted by Parent
