I can't say enough good things about our experience with Annunciation. We moved mid year, and they were extremely welcoming and communicative throughout the whole process. Mrs. Logan in the front office is so kind and helpful. My son's teacher was the same. We were able to come in a day early for him to see his classroom and meet his teacher 1:1 before he would be surrounded by all the kids on the first day back after Christmas break. The principal, Mr. Eiswert, is warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend this school to anyone new to the area.

ACS is a wonderful school, it is small enough to provide personal attention when needed and feels like a family, but it also is large enough to provide excellent academic opportunities, besides the usual academics ACS offers language, music, art, and competitive sports. We have been at ACS for three years and our experience has been extremely positive even with Covid. The principal, teachers and staff go above and beyond what is expected . ACS is definitely a five star school.

Annunciation Catholic School is our home away from home. My children have attended ACS for 7 years and will miss the family environment when my kids graduate. ACS has challenged my kids academically as well as encouraged their love for music. There are a variety of clubs and sports to engage all interests. We highly recommend this school!

My children came to Annunciation Catholic School 2 yrs ago from the public school system. Both of my children have thrived in the environment this school provides. There is plenty of one on one attention from the teachers and the circulum is challenging but focused on learning. As a family we have enjoyed the dedication and care of the entire Annunciation family.

I do not know other schools first hand. ACS was our first choice because my husband & I were both brought up with Catholic educations. We may not be the best parents, but we understand the importance of prayer. I may not be as well behaved as my children (ok, it's not even close!), but I try to share agape. Why am I sharing this?! I feared, 5 years ago, becoming part of this school community ... that we wouldn't fit "the mold" ... that we weren't "private school material" ... and I can honestly say that there is no mold. Our school has teachers and staff that go out of their way to keep us informed & reassured that our kids are in the best hands possible. We have volunteers who give of their time because they want to see the school excel & the kids have fun. I have formed bonds with families who have improved my life with their presence. I come away from school events feeling loved & affirmed in our choice for our 3 children.
