School Reviews

Since we lived in the area, I checked the school out 8 years ago and have been happy ever since. I feel that my son is in a safe environment when I am working! His spiritual journey has grown and he has the tools needed to become a wonderful man of God. I suggest that you plan a tour and give it serious consideration! You won''t be disappointed!!!

My daughter started at St .Bernadette''s this school year it has been the best change that she has had with religion and academics. We wouldn''t change it for anything.It''s been great!

My two children started going to St. Bernadette''s in 2011 entering the 3rd and 5th grade after going to Rockford Public for the years prior and my kids love it. Best decision we could''ve made for our kid''s education.
