I attended this school through my 6-8th grade years a few years ago, and most of the same staff at my time there still remain. I have been to multiple public and private schools and Nativity is by far the best school I`ve been to. The staff is fully committed to their students and go above and beyond in fostering a healthy learning environment. They provide a formative Catholic education and encourage religious traditions, but they don`t force it upon you. The school provides great resources so that your student can have a variety of experiences, from its LabLearner science program to the Battle of the Books Club. The relationship between teachers is the best I`ve ever seen. I need to comeback to visit one day to say thanks.
