School Reviews

I love St. Agnes. My daughter has been there since 1st grade and she is now in 4th. She has learned a lot and the teachers challenge the students to do their best. I feel great knowing that she is in a safe environment and getting a quality education.

St. Agnes school has been a huge part of our lives. Our school offers a challenging academic focus, a strong foundation of faith, and a richness of friendships and family!! St. Agnes is very fortunate to offer specials such as music, art, Spanish, Gym and Library. Our school is equipped with computers (laptops) and has a computer lab that the students can use as well as has Smartboards that the students also use as a learning tool.
