This was one of the best decisions we have made for our family. The teachers constantly go above and beyond and are always willing to help. The staff is friendly and helpful. I love the small class sizes and the personalized attention each student receives. I am so happy we decided to send our child to FJVD.

We are now in our 8th year at FJVD School. We love that the education includes Music, Art, Gym and Technology. We have a Chromebook assigned to our children, which I haven't seen in all private schools. The academics are challenging, but the teachers are always available for any help we need. The school has done an amazing job keeping our kids safe with the whole Pandemic. They have air purifiers in the rooms. The nurse is right on top of everything too! Love the teachers, Love the school!

This is my daughter's second year here, and she loves it. The teachers are fantastic. There is a new principal, and he is innovative, and involved. Even during the COVID crisis they have been fantastic to work with.

As alumni of Father John. Doyle School, I had no question of where I would send my child when he became school-age. I long valued and appreciated the education I received but it is nothing compared to the feelings I have as a parent of a student. I am constantly reminded why this was the easiest decision I have made as a parent. My son is currently in Kindergarten, and he is excited to go to school every day. I have seen him grow, not only academically, but spiritually and emotionally. He is instilled with the values that a parent can only hope for their children. The faculty and staff go above and beyond for the students. There is a true sense of school community. I honestly cannot sing the praises of this school enough.
