No matter what religious background you come from, Ursuline is absolutely wonderful! The academics and extracurricular opportunities are nothing short of outstanding. The girls are kind and sisterly. The whole atmosphere of the school is warm, inviting, and perfect for learning. The teachers care about the students. They do not what parents to get involved because they want students to become independent and learn to advocate themselves. You cannot possibly go wrong with Ursuline!
