School Reviews

Great school. I am very pleased with the communication Bishop Flaget provides. Both of my children have become so much more independent since attending Bishop Flaget (Preschool & K). The staff is very friendly and establishes a relationship with each child by name. It is truly a family environment. I am very pleased with the academics that are being taught. The classrooms are up to date with technology. My kindergartener gets to use and take an iPad home that the school has provided.
