Its time to tally up the marks...WHY we LOVE our school so much. My daughter has expressed her desire to always chase HER BEST. The teachers and staff infuse these kids with the love of learning and the idea that they can reach sky high! My son (the youngest) had a rough transition leaving the nest, BUT felt at home after the first week. The support and nurturing "extended family" that we now have, worked to make it easier on both MOM and child to jump this hurdle. The academic achievements that I have seen so far are outstanding! My kindergartner is showing so much growth, and 2nd grader is impressing my daily. Our front office team, works together to keep us up-to-date on news around school and any developing issues/concerns. The ability to communicate is impressive, and I am confident and relieved to have my children in good, safe, capable hands while not at home. After school activities( many to chose from) feed their imagination and give my kids time to socialize in that same safe, adventurous place. Just stop by, they are ALWAYS willing to introduce you and you children to a new "Happy Place".

My family moved here <3 yrs ago, leaving 2 top-notch schools. To our delight, St. Al's is the BEST of all! As a scientist, I can affirm the quality of the STEAM curriculum. Despite prior hiccups in the math program, all is fixed; 8th grade is working at a 10th grade math level. The language arts program is so compelling that students eagerly anticipate reading circles and quick writes; I catch mine doing extra work at home to share with their energetic and encouraging teachers. Best of all, the children are kind: older children help the younger ones, peers include and support each other, and new families are graciously welcomed. Students have many community and parish volunteer opportunities. School families, parishioners, faculty, and staff all are highly engaged. New principal is a true leader who runs a tight but caring ship. Stunning campus and facilities. 3-yr-old preschool thru 8th grade. You can't find a better school for outstanding academics, values, and environment.

I recommend Saint Alphonsus Liguori school without hesitation because it is a Blue Ribbon School and has a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere. In addition, our children have access to many wonderful extra-curricular activities, no-cut athletics and service programs. Being at Saint Alphonsus is like being with family!
