School Reviews

Highest regards for nuns who taught empathy, etiquette, and social skills. Teaching supurb. I, an average student took soph. classes upon entering public high school. The classics and contem. arts were also taught. "St. Matts" prepared me for the future lifetime. I have always been grateful!
