Best Catholic PK-8 school on the North Shore. Strong academics. Dedicated teachers. Excellent community involvement. The principal runs a tight ship and has a gift for hiring great teachers. Compared to other private and well rated public elementary schools in the area, I've been very impressed how efficiently this school operates.
